Like in The Deep South? I know Bender probably could because hes dense, but everyone else should just float to the top of the sea right? If people have already talked about this... sorry.

You can do it if you get all the air out of your lungs. Unfortunately, you would die very soon.  wink

Anyway, it's Futurama.  So it don't have to be so realistic.  It's like Fry and his bag full of air. Lol, it's so nice.

I thought the bag of air thing would work...... oh well I guess I'm dumbful. And BTW I loved the sound that pill made when it came out the tablet pot... hehe. That would have killed.

The suppository did something, somehow, maybe?

the bag of air wouldnt work because it would be compressed to tiny from all the pressure, also when u're under a lot of pressure, u need more oxygen, so that bag wouldnt last 2 breaths

The pressure suppositories must also affect whatever a person is holding.

Anyway, Like I said before it's futurama. The house of the doctor Zoieberg Burn out, by the cigare bender left over.  There is just no common sens in that, but it's so funny than we say: F*ck the common sense! Lol
For my part, I'm saying that we must enjoiy Futurama and all its stuff, even if its unlogical. smile

Mmhh..yeah, maybe!  wink But I found this just ridiculous that some pepople are questionning themselves until death to things that are obvious unlogical in life, and there are in Futurama anyways.
It's Futurama, science-fiction, FANTASY! Lol but seriously, it's okay the ask question, it makes me talk for nothin'  smile

 The sea is made of a thinner liquid in the future. H3O. Or something.

That probably wouldn't be possible would it? Because oxygen atoms can only connect to two other atoms. (I could explain this better in Icelandic, I don't know the scientific terms in English)

this is what happned, haveing gone to the future, i know for a fact that the water in that perticular area was denser then air because of all the waste dumped in it for centuries

ps that same waste makes seashells flamable (which is what happned to dr z's house)  :-P

and how do you, from the 21st century, know this when hermes, from the 31st century, didn't?

i love the line from the beginning of that episode...
"Dear lord! That's over 150 atmosphere's of pressure!"
"How many atmosphere's can the ship withstand?"
"Well, it's a spaceship, so I'd say anywhere between 0 and 1."

The flaming shell and cigar underwater were just jokes because they couldn't happen. Ditto with Benders beer belly in WMIBACIL.

I've always thought that moments like this are the perfect ones for the "somebody else's problem field" from Life, The Universe, and Everything.  Because then, the problem of whether or not it is actually possible to walk on the seafloor becomes, quite obviously, somebody else's. 

I wish somebody would invent that damn thing already.

Hey you forgot one thing and that is what does a pressure pill do (as the profesor says"no fry your body would be crushed under all that pressure, so use my pressure pill) it makes your body adapt to the pressure so with out air frys body can stay at that depth as for the air, your guess is as good as mine.

that sentence made almost no sense
well anyway, i bet that there is something in the future that makes walking underwater possible. Like the prof. telling cubert that scientists increased the speed of light so they would not neccesarily go faster than it

I'm with DogDoo8. Nobody knows fully what the pressure pill did - so that could explain everything.

Can you really walk underwater?

About this underwater-going-thing: Is't Atlanta something like 3,000 feet under the sea? Sorry if that number is completely wrong, but I usualy do not use the foot-system.
Anyhow, couldn't the high presure in that depth explain why the crew can go on the ground? I mean: That the presure is pushing them down and would squeesh them "like a green snake under a truck", if they wouldn't take this ... uhm ... suppositories ...

Um, no.  The reason that you float in water is because your body, which contains a lot of air, is less dense than water.  High pressure certainly isn't going to make the water any less dense.

The suppositories which enable the crew to withstand the pressure might somehow make their bodies denser, which would solve the problem.
Or they could just have put weights in their shoes, like I said earlier.

I think that was a pretty good joke.  It's along the same lines as dark matter being used as starship fuel or a microwave being used in a supernova sending a spaceship back in time.  It's ridiculous and highly unlikely, but can you really prove it ISN'T possible?

Acutually when you get about 50 feet down (roughly) the pressure the water puts on you is so high that you have negitve boyancy, so you would sink. while being crushed to death by tones of pressure.
