Right, this is the first Futurama topic i've started in almost a year, so bear with me.
What i am in the process of doing, is making a list of Bender's functions through the series. I am currently about a third finished, and it isn't getting done quickly, but it is getting done, during my spare, offline hours. There are also a few specifications and interesting tidbits in there too.
At the moment i'm going to just copy/paste the whole text document, no formatting, except for the basic one in the document itself.
The indented points are things he's pulled out of his chest cabinet, which is a side-project to this.
I was going to do all the stuff that he successfully steals too, but that can wait.
Now this list is really sketchy, because in the beginning i was going to make it extremely comprehensive, listing even the most obvious things, but i soon saw the stupidity in that, so forgive the obviousness in the first few episodes.
If anyone wants to help, some re-checking would be greatly appreciated, it's very easy to lose concentration while doing this, so there will be a lot of notable redundancies which i would love to be reminded about. However, i will not be posting lists that you people make. It's nothing personal, it's just for the sake of order and consistency, feel free to post them yourself even if they're early, they will be very handy for cross-checking when the time comes.
One last thing of note, i am trying to mention things once each, and avoid repeats, unless it's particuarly noteworthy.
Again, the indented points are items he's had in his chest cabinet.
