How come Bender can withstand water?  In the episodes, "The Deep South" and the end of "Bending in the Wind" how was Bender able to be in water without his circuits malfuctioning? 

When you think of a robot in water, you'd think they would malfunction and explode.  But not Bender!

If most robots are used for labor and public service, you'd think the future would invent some kind of technology to keep them safe from water. Which they obviously did.

The future? Even today we have highly sophisticated underwater robots, diving to the bottom of the oceans without any problems whatsoever. Shielding electronic circuits isn't that hard. Even corrosion is an easily solvable problem. Give some credit to science, Kurt.

Yeah, I think that robots being vulnerable to water is more of a cartoon cliché than anything else.  I prefer Bender's vulnerability to magnets.
