Prehaps the reverse fossilisation was not perfect and his digestive tract simply absorbed anything that he ate, and didnt release any waste products?

Maybe he ate pure lard

Maybe the what if machine stuffed up?

He liked the taste of food, and sadly, he ate too much. Maybe he ate nonstop for a week.
::gasp:: WHAT?! WOAH, I NEVER THOUGHT OF THAT!
 Plus, Bender never tasted the Anchovies, he just made the emotion of disgust "because everyone else was doing it".

I am just saying he could have killed him self while eating so much at a time,it could cause him to choke.

i blame booze, im sure he drank so many beers, perhaps the same amount he needed as a robot to keep functioning, and it was more than a human beer belly should have to confine in a few days.?

a robot turning into a fleshwad is ok, but him growing fat in a week isn't ?

it's an AOI 'what if' story, they can afford to get a little more loose with logic.

Because it's a cartoon show, that's why.  tongue

There is no way this could be done in real life. One kilogram of fat equals 9,000 calories. To get that fat in one week he'd have to consume something like 500,000 calories a day.

That's not a job the human digestive system is designed for.   wink

Well, eating pure lard would be the quickest way to gain weight since it goes directly into body fat storage. But he'd need to eat 100+ pounds of it per day, and somehow that doesn't sound like a particular pleasant experience to me.   wink

I'm not a doctor, but even if you could consume such amounts of pure fat, I believe it would release such massive amounts of cholesterol into the bloodstream it would clog up the circulatory system and kill you on the spot.

think about it, if you ate and dranknachos and chesse drink beer, for a week straight, yeah it may bit a very tiny micro bit inaccurate , but youd be a fat ass.   laff  i just wanted to say ass.

I dunno... Those Sweet Honey Buns with the white frosting have somewhere near 500 calories in each one...  So if he ate 1000 of those per day...  tongue  I know I could.  Those things are amazing.

Plus since its the future, maybe they have VERY high calorie foods?  tongue  I dunno.

I've always wondered how they come up with statistics like this.  Do they take some serial killers out of prison and force feed them lard until they drop?

500,000 calories a day is easily acheivable.

1 pint (1 beer) = 200 to 280 calories.
1 packet of nachos (50g) = 300 to 350 calories.
1 muffin (see thread above) = 500 calories.
1 donner kebab = 680 to 750 calories.
1 curry = 2000 to 3000 calories.
1 chinese meal = 3000 to 3500 calories.
1 fry-up = up to 10,000 calories for a plateful of fried bacon, sausages, tomatoes, beans, and mushrooms.
2x slices of bread with butter and grilled cheese (a single grilled cheese sandwich) = 1000 to 1500 calories, if the cheese is used sparingly. Up to 5000 if fired bacon is used.

All figures are based on averages, and may be a tiny bit inaccurate, as I've doen this from memory, rather than sourcing all materials (I know that the beer, nachos, donner, curry and cheese sandwich are right, I've carried those useless facts in my head for about a year).

The human body needs 2000 to 2500 calories a day to maintain weight, so thats a curry.

With constant snacking and drinking, 16 hours a day, it would be (theoretically) possible to drink 4 pints an hour and remain non-lethally intoxicated. That's between 12800 and 17920 calories a day from beer alone. Nachos and muffins as snack foods, lets' say one packet of nachos and one muffin per hour. That's between 12800 and 13600 calories a day. That's a minimum of 25600 calories and a maximum of 31520 from booze and snacks alone, at a conservative estimate. A gluttonous person with no self restraint could easily consume more. Three donner kebabs to round off a hard day's drinking would come to between 2040 and 2250 calories. A constant sequence of fry-ups, chinese food, grilled cheese sandwiches, etc. through the day would see Bender steadily piling up the calorie count.

Don't forget that Bender would be doing almost no physical exertion. His curry would be MORE than adequate to last his body the day, and he'd probably have more than one. With starters, and dessert.

I have no trouble believeing that Bender could do it.

So will they be burying you in a coffin or a packing crate after your heart attack?  eek

I'd suggest cremation but by the time you'd eaten all that you'd be so greasy that setting you alight would result in a 4 square mile area being blown up.

Two words: It's funny.
Actually, the whole concept seems rather illogical, but:
1.)It's a cartoon and 2). It's a sci-fi cartoon

I think the strangest thing is that he gained quite a bit of height as well.

It was pretty disgusting, especially the explanation of the "whooo..." sound.

It always made me cringe when Fry, Leela + Amy rolled Fat Bender out the door to the sound of 'Whoooooo'.

I can sympathise with Bender becoming addicted to Nachos too, Old El Paso Nachos Kits with LOTS of extra mature Chedder.... yum.
 
         Of course I know when I've had enough so I won't need a packing crate for later thanks.    smile

It's one thousand years in the future, who knows what amazing leaps forward there could have been in the lard-ass creation industry.

Exactly.  Americans (including me) have gotten fat over the years.  Just look at the obesity rate now! In 1,000 years, food will be crammed with calories, so it make senes...except Bender is a robot.  hmpf
