It's late, I'm tired,so if these have been asked before I apologize...

In Fear of a Bot Planet, the robot mayor says they have had 146000 + straight Human Hunts without finding any humans... If they are holding one every day at 5 pm. that would be something like 3000 years!? What, they used to hold more then one a day??

In a Fishful of Dollars Zoidberg breaks down and admits his people ate all the anchovies; they way he talks it sounds like he umm,helped some in making them extinct. The anchovies went extinct back in the 2200s though... I know there were some around after that but I don't see how Zoidberg could afford them. Is he like 800 years old then??

No comment on the first one, as it looks like a maths problem...  <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/tongue.gif">

As for the second, when Zoidberg says "we," he's refering to his people... the anchovie lust he latter succumbs to is purely instinctive.  <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/smile.gif">

Yeah, I can't prove that, but I believe you're seeing things that aren't there...
Though I could just say that, going by the candle's on his cake, Zoidberg's one year old, if I wanted... but I don't really believe that, either.

146,000/365 is 400  So they've only been doing human hunts for 400 years.

lol, I don't think he's just a year old...I mean, how many more candles can you expect to put on a cupcake? I'm surprised he could afford ONE...and the cupcake.

Robots love doing boring and repetitive tasks. Even if they've had 146 million huns without finding any humans, they'll have another one tomorrow. They're programmed to.

Well, you have to keep in mind that the length of a day and a year aren't necessarily the same on alien worlds as they are on Earth.  Still, more than one a day is probably likely.

Some kind of racial memory, I suppose.  Or maybe they aren't extinct on Decapod 10.

Maybe the Decapodians stole the anchovies around that time and stockpiled them on Decapod 10, so Zoidberg ate some of the last ones.

Zoidberg's just a self hating J.... Crab. Yes, so I wouldn't be surprised if he were guilty despite lack of direct involvement.

I'm ashamed that I belong to the race that produced Soul Plane and White Chicks, why can't Zoidberg be ashamed of his races actions?

as other people have said:

1. 146000 / 365 = only 400 years

2. Zoidberg is ashamed. or maybe, he wants to taste anchovies so badly, that he is sorry they ate them all.

It's a time paradox... they show it in Episode 5 of season 7...
