I was wondering about a strange thing about  Bender, don't know if it's already been discussed...

According to him, he's 40% Zn and 40% Ti. But he's also 30% Fe (iron). Now, according to my math knowledge, this doesn't make much sense since this sums up to a 110%... So, is Bender something like a superbot?  roll eyes   eek

40% Titanium
30% Iron
40% Zink
40% Dolomite

I guess it's another way to say Larger Than Life.  wink

The way I see it is : We see various parts of Bender get broken or damaged during the course of the series.  He gets replacements that are made of different alloys, and so explains the disparities %ages of metals over time.

I guess whenever there's something about metal, he just says he's made 40% of it  wink

Dolomite isn't a metal it's a sediment.

Explanation: Bender is 50% magic and this allows him to add up to more than 100%. Possibly.   tongue

Wow I had no idea that Dolomite was a real material, it just sounds like a funny made up name.

Are we ever going to stop blaming the wizards?  smile

May be after being electroshocked in SP3K, Bender just thinks that integer consists not of 100% but of smothing more, like 150%?  smile

Its the future, perhaps percentages, or math altogether has changed. And it is not possible to have more than 100% of something.

Or maybe the other 10% is metaphorical iron. Like.. inner Iron. The iron inside each and every one of us. Inner strength..

What??? It makes sense...  frown
