Physically, Fry is around 1020+ years old.

But Biologically he's only in his mid twenties still.

If you simply count from the day of his birth, Fry is over 1000 years old.

But he didn't age while he was in the cryo-tube, so he emerged still physically 25 years old.

Fun fact: When Fry's reached 160 in physical years, he'll be 1160. Now that's old!  tongue (Course anyone with a calculator could figure that out, but the question for the thread has been answered.

Chronologically, he's 1,025 at the start of the show (after being frozen) and 25 biologically. If time moved forward like it was supposed to, he'd be 1,029 and 29 respectively.

Watch the eppisode... ah crap wait, its a FanFic, and a good one at that, its called "Crash Course In Love"... the author mentions Fry's physical age and cronilogical age. It's a good story.

The only purpose that post serves is as a plug for "Crash Course in Love," given that the answer is already stated in several posts. Shame! tongue Although, it is a good story.

Man I really love that story called "Crash Course in Love"! Crash Course in Love is the best fan fic since "Crash Course in Love".

There, I plugged it a little more.

It's simple, 1000 years plus 25 (his 20th centurey age) = 1025. But if the show lasted five seasons he was either 1029 or 1030 when it was over.

Fry will have existed for about 1030 years at the end of Season 5 and physically he will be about 30, but mentally I'd say he acts like he's a lot younger.

Is each season really a year?

I figured they all stayed at a vague age so nobody would have to explain what age they are.

Or mabye its just in their bios (I never read that stuff anyway).

According to the information Leela types in in SP3K he was 24 when frozen which would make him 1024 when he woke up - possibly a subtle maths/ computer science joke, powers of two are important in binary.

When they were in the Fountain of Aging, all of them (except the Professer, who emergered older  than 160 something) were at least a few years younger when they all got out (as Leela says "I might be a few years younger.", so I'd say Fry would be around 24 or 25.

Leela was in the pool for a lot less time than anyone else, and they all looked normal age by the time that she yumped in. I think she was the only one that came out younger than usual (IF she did).

Wait, like in that episode (dont know the name off the top of my head) where the professor turns 160 and has to go to that place with those space grim reaper dudes.  Since Fry is technically 160, wouldn't that mean he HAS to go to that place?

No, because he's not biologically 160. The NearDeath Star is for physically old people, like a nursing home. Fry doesn't need to be there yet.

It just occured to me, Fry's clothes would be over a thousand years old.

And he sold them for fifty bucks.

Not all of Fry's clothes are 1000 years old. He has more than one set of clothes.

But in the future everyone thought he was a freak for wearing them. In LTTE, when he Leela and Bender went to the old New York park thing they though he was an employee for his clothes. So no one would want them.

I don't know if the comics are considered part of the continuity but in #3, there are several sets of Fry's clothes on the table. Also, I could swear in one of the episodes it shows more than one set on the floor of his apartment.

you can buy weird looking clothes in 21st century, so maybe in 3001 you still can buy clothes and look weird.

good

benders is 1059 years old in season 4. 6 years + 1053 years lying in the sand in Rtew.

due to travelling at 99,9% lightspeed, the crew has no determined age.

and farnsorth' age is quiet interesting, because he seems to exchange his organs now and then.

ok, later more.

hmm, i cant write english sentences.

Since they travel to nearby galaxies in mere hours, and usually make deliveries to nearby planets, the relativistic effects are pretty neglectable.

they once travelled to the galaxie of terror. the next galaxie, the andromeda nebula is 165.000 lightyears away from earth. the next planet which is not in our solar system is at alpha centauri, 4.3 ly  away.
these distances should create measurable effects.
they also visit the end of the universe.

But since the speed of light had been increased  these effects, while measurable, is neglectable in the overall scheme. They simply never spend enough time travelling at relativistic speeds.

Farnsworth say in "A Clone Of My Own" that the Planet Express ship can travel to nearby galalxies in a couple of hours, the edge of the Universe is only a few hours away (since that was  a leisure trip I doubt they were travelling anywhere near light speed).

So each trip would tops yield them a couple of hours, and since they don't make deliveries that often (PE is a pretty mediocre delivery compnay) that's not something that would affect Fry's age, at least not in a major way. That's not even excluding those missions where they're traveling at a leisurely .2C or .5C.

Small nit: the nearest galaxy is the Small Magellanic Cloud, the Andromeda Galaxy is 2.1 million LY away.    wink

So..if it only takes them a couple of hours to get somewhere, why do they have bedrooms on the ship? And why'd it take them a week to get to the edge of the universe and back in 'Route of all evil'? Man, that's off-topic.

In IDaR they travelled to the closest edge of the universe, but in TRoAE they travelled to the furthest edge of the universe which is a much longer distance. Also, it only took half a week to get there, it was one week for a return journey.

Bender says in "I, Roommate" that Fry only has one set of clothes, but he might have bought some more after that.  Maybe there's some futuristic way to create an exact replica of a set of clothes, which is why they all look the same.
