its probably been posted before but if it has i dont care.
in the cryonic woman, i just dont think it makes sense that people can have a job in one building, welcoming defrostees, because thers only so many tubes.

I've thought about that too.  They seem to be constantly reviving people, though there just seems to be one room of tubes.

Not only that, but they all seem to be waking up in the year 3000.

Lou and Terry probably have other functions than just welcoming defrostees. Like maintaining the cryotubes, wiping down the condensation, training new staff, paperwork, etc.

Presumably the company still accept new costumers as well, meaning more work for them.

There are probably multiple rooms. After all, it's a huge building. They probably just have many seperate rooms of tubes for ease of maintenece and to make it less intimdating to the recently defrosted.

Didn't Fry get off on the 64th floor back in 1999? Meaning the building is huge? Probably more things to do around there than just defrost people... like make career chips, what's up with those?

And Leela's old job as Fate Assignment Officer could affect college graduates.. she probably gave them and planet immigrants to NNY career chips...

With all the other tubes supposedly functioning correctly, what atrocities could "Applied Cryogenics" have unleashed on an unsuspecting future?

One thing: In 1999 Applied Cryogenics was a small business. It's implied by the tacky note on the door. I mean, if your company occupies severay storeys of a complex, then I doubt that you'd have a note on the door in that way. You'd probably have a sign on the entrances and stuff like "Cryolab J" on a door such as the one that leads into the cryolab... So at least in 1999 the company is small (although it might still require massive funding). Of course they could have grown since our time.

In SP3K, Fry fell into tube 40 but the other tubes were counting up from this number. This implies that even in 1999 there were at least 39 tubes we couldn't see. By 3000 there could be loads more, especially since "It seems to work OK".

I would agree that the Applied Cryogenics company was probably quite small in 1999 and much bigger in 3000. Maybe there was an upsurge in freezzing after cyborgs enslaved humanity or during some other kind of disaster. Or wizards.

It did expand at some time because in 1999 the sign was on the door, and in the cryogenic woman, the sign is outside the building, indicating that they own the whole building. I probably sound like a nerd already, but also when Fry gets Leelas job, the boss says we'll have to re-decorate your office, again saying that there is more than one room.

Hey hows it going this is my first post.  My question on the cryogenic lab is wouldnt the building have been either one destroyed or in the sewers with the rest of old NY?

There was something supposed to be special about that, but it didn't pan out I guess... I think we're meant to assume that the Nibblonians saved that building because of its special function...

Or perhaps something we didn't see was the cryonic chambers being moved to a different building with the same layout as the old one. Remember, the sequence with Fry in the tube supposedly condenses 1,000 years of life into around 1 minute, so little things like that could obviously be missed.   wink

Maybe they'll make an episode about that...oh wait...   cry

It's always the Nibblonians...

Maybe the tubes that are to be thawed are moved to a 'foyer' area from a very dull and not-funny warehouse somewhere else?

Admittedly, this falls flat when you think of all that goes on outside Fry's tube in SP3K. My explanation for this is that when Fry was originally found, Applied Cryogenics didn't immediately thaw him for lack of payment as someone assumed the paperwork and payment would follow soon. After a few years, he got to be a novelty, and after a few more people forgot.

A bit like Elmer McCurdy (http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/1841153230/qid=1073300906/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_0_1/026-3556907-5311663) but with more comedy.

I think that the story of Elmer McCurdy has plenty of comedy.

I fixed your link.

One day I'll get the hang of UBB code.  frown

But while we're here - if the preserved corpse of a not-very-good outlaw can end up as a prop in an amusement park after 60 years, it's not beyond the realms of possibility that Applied Cryogenics forget 'that red-headed guy' after a couple of centuries.

Don't worry about it.  It took me a while too.

I agree.  Nibblonian intervention is also a strong possibility.

The Nibblonians forged the paperwork for Fry to get a window seat.

If tere is only one room of Cryotubes, then add another one. That's X-Periment, now-member of the X-Universe forums, saying "I told you so."

X-Periment, dude, nothing of what you post makes any kind of vague resemblance to sense.

Welcome to the forum, though.
