It has been noted in futurama that once you turn 160 you get taken away by the sunset squad, so if this is true then why hasn't Fry, Professor or Bender??

Fry is now 1024 years old, more than a tad over the limit, so surely him and all of the other deforstie should be taken away. Also Bender (his head) is 1004 years old, so why hasn't he been taken (that is assuming that the sunset squad applies to robots. The professor escaped from the near death star so why haven't they chased him up on this??

There is also the heads in jars, assuming then that celebrities can live forever as a head in a jar (except silvester stalone) it still doesn't explain why the sunset squad does such a lousy job!!    no no     big grin

I have no signature - thats my gimmick

i think it means physically 160 years old. And also those heads in the jars could be recently created clones, and also a wizard did it.

Also, apparently you have to notify the Sunset Squad when you turn 160. Maybe a lot of people don't.

Futurama Comic #1 tells us that infact the heads in jars are from people who are already dead.

If we're going to go into that, then let's regress back to the 'career chips'
How inconsistent was that??

You don't have to notify them.  Everyone thought the professor was 150, he notified them that he was 160, thats all

What? You want logic? Common sense? Consistancy, maybe? Feh! You wish.
</Zoidberg>
Futurama writers have shown time and again they're willing to tolerate inconsistancies for the sake of a good gag. It's science-fiction humor! They won't let one get in the way of the other, and humor sells better.

Also, Fry is 1028 or 1029 at this point. Bender's head is 1061 or 1062(IIRC think he was 5 when when "it" happened). Depends on wether it's 3003 or 3004...

Their physical ages is another matter though.

Hmm, I'm sure robots don't count.

What is this career chip inconsistancy I hear about? I can think of Future stock, where 'That guy' didn't have one installed

Robots can't be hooked up to the nursing home, and they don't have children to wait for calls from. (Unless you want to get back onto Robo-Puberty...please, no.)

Career chips don't matter at all. They were introduced in the Pilot, described as being really important and were then dumped, because the idea was boring. End of Story!

I don't remember the commentators coming right out and saying that, though I guess you could interpret it that way.  ISTR that they lumped the chips idea with other ideas that somehow just never got to go anywhere.  If you ask me, they sounded wistful.
