Cool, I didn't know that. Quoxote is on my read before I die list. I have it in my library, just haven't gotten around to it.
"Script Logic" is probably a more accurate term for "A wizard did it." It is something that was probably thrown in because an episode/joke needed it, it just produces an inconsistancy in the greater scheme of things. Fry not knowing about Freedom Day until 2003 would be a good example.
Plus, don't forget the Futurama connection. You can always blame the dark wizards.
