"Congratulations indeed, but you finished with two seconds to spare, so I am demoting you" said Number 1.0 and demoted Hermes.  As he inserted his whatchamacallit into the thingamabob on his desk and turned it, we see Hermes's grade as being 38.  Then it schpoofs and reads 36.  Then 38 again.

Quae?!

Maybe bureaucrats above 1.0 are changing Hermes's grade?

It's a random number generator, and you have to wait until it generates the desired number.

I haven't noticed that before, however I don't have eagle eyes like so many of these PEELers seem to have. It is weird though...

Or maybe it was supposed to do that because I've noticed it heaps of times and for some reason I haven't found any problem with it.

Maybe the camera man for futurama was on drugs at the moment that scene was shot?

Yeah, I didn't think of it as an error.  Y'know how when you turn on a fluorescent light, it flickers on and off for a second before staying on?  Or when you degauss an old computer monitor, it flinches back and forth for a bit?  It seems like Hermes's electronic badge “flickered” in a similar way.

I've always seen it and never had a problem with it, it just seems to be a joke as above mentioned.

This is how it was a joke.  roll eyes
Not all jokes are funny though, I can think of at least a dozen jokes in Futurama that I didn't even crack a smile at.
