Gotta agree that Zapp'd sooner run than fight. Fry getting in one good punch would make my day, though. Zapp is the character every woman dreads being stuck at the bus stop with. Can't ya just picture it? It's night, one flickering street lamp, and some poor girl is standing there next to the jerk of the century. He's why you keep your pepper spray handy.

Speaking of vegemite, did you hear that America has banned vegemite in the whole country? How rediculous is that!? Because it has folate in it or something and the only foods in the US that are allowed folate are like breads and that!

Like, what the hell? Folate is good for you!

Functions of folate are:
-Necessary for growth
-Necessary for red blood cell formation
-Amino Acid metabolism
-Antibody formation
-Formation of nucleic acids

Why would you ban something with folate?

Well, their loss, not ours. Vegemite is awesome!   love

Since the nation of America is comprised of numerous different races me saying that I hate America cannot be considered racist. Especially since my own race comprises the majority of America.
There is no race issue here.

No, those are just prejudices. Racism is about race. Hence the name. And I'm no racist. I find racism offensive in the extreme.
I'm anti-American, though largely due to the government and Military/Industrial Complex. There are many American individuals whom I admire.

But you can't call anti-Americanism 'racism'. That is a fallacy and paints certain global concerns with a brush of fascism that they really shouldn't be painted with. Like I said, America is made up of innumerable different races, none of whom an anti-American person would necessarily have any specific problem with. A nation is not a race, it is a faceless organizational structure.

The only time Leela ever appeared to get jealous of someone being with Fry was when he had his fake relationship with Amy in AFtR. But what if he had a fling after the events in season 4 and TDHaIP? Would she feel jealous, thus implying a feeling of ownership of him?

Ah, I see, jealousy manifesting as protectiveness. Though that jealousy was never clearly apparent except in AFtR. An later in PYHomS when we went out with Amy, Leela seemed completely indifferent, and then when he decided to call it off she appeared slightly irritated that he was bothering her with the details. Was this indifference forced?

Actually, in AFtR, we did see Leela jealous. Remember, she got a bit upset about Fry kissing Amy.

And covered up that jealousy by pretending it was concern for his mental well-being. Who is she trying to kid, huh? Fry? Herself? Us? Well she's fooling NOBODY! We all know the truth - she wanted the Lucy Lui Bot for HERSELF!!
The truth is - LEELA IS A LESBIAN!

All women are lesbians to you.
If you were Fry in Put Your Head on my Shoulder, I can imagine your reaction to be quite different to Fry's when Amy said "with my body, I think you might attract only one sort of woman."

But anyway, back to the Fry/Leela world...
Do you think if that nebula didn't get sucked into the black hole, Leela might look at it sometimes to be reminded of that time when they almost...

Well, if physics were taken into consideration Leela would probably still be able to see the nebula if she looked into a telescope from Earth considering that light from the distant region of space would take centuries to reach the Earth. It's... what do they call that... Relativistic. The light is still travelling. Say that nebula was 100 light years from Earth (not a great distance really) then it would only appear to disappear from our skies a hundred years from the time it got spaghettified in the black hole (spaghettification is a REAL scientific term - look it up!  big grin).
Incidentally the same could be said of Fry's love letter in the sky - all he'd need to do is get a specific distance away from the point where it used to be and make Leela look into a telescope and BAM, there it'll be.

Great, now you made me be a nerd.

Heh heh, yeah. But don't expect the writers of Futurama to ever bring that scientific fact to bear. It would, of course, be dependent on Fry coming to an understanding of that principle of physics I just outlined... and I think it might be a bit beyond him.

Thereís no superluminal travel in Futurama; IE. Thereís no way they couldíve beaten the nebulaís light to Earth with any time to see it.

Actually that wouldn't work.  It's explained in A Clone of My Own and a couple of the commentaries that since travelling beyond the speed of light is impossible scientists merely increased the speed of light in the year 2208.  So since the Planet Express can't travel beyond the speed of light they never would have been able to return to earth and view these sights.

The writers used that explanation to make fast space travel in the show plausible.  Increasing the speed of light is impossible.  If it WAS increased, then space travel would also be impossible.  I read that somewhere, but I forget where, I think it might have been an internet version of steven hawkings book on time...anyone know what it's called?  Maybe I should check my computer history and see if it's still in there...

Anyways... yes I had that theory too coldangel_1, but looking back on it, they would never be able to beat the speed of light (if it was increased...  roll eyes )  However since time travel IS possible in the futurama universe, then it is also possible for Leela to see the nebula and the "I love you" cluster of stars again.  Then the question becomes will the writers of the show want to introduce time travel into the show for a third time.

Would you guys think that the time travel idea would be overused if they introduced it again?

Hmmmmmmmm....

Fact of the matter is that in a number of Quantum tunnelling experiments conducted a few years ago the speed of light WAS broken. By 1.7 times, in fact. A partical stream fired through a block of concrete 'borrowed' energy from the surrounding matter in order to 'tunnel' through it, and it broke the speed of light.

Hmm. I never really took Farnsworth seriously when he said they'd increased the speed of light, unless it referred to the area directly surrounding the spacecraft. How do you increase a Universal Constant universally?
You can't. The very fabric of reality would be altered with unpredictible results. If light speed was increased then the visible spectrum's relative wave frequency would be increased also, turning normal sunlight into deadly gamma radiation. In fact, the visible spectrum would probably no longer exist under normal circumstances so you wouldn't be able to see anything, and stepping outside into the sun'light' would result in fatal radiation poisoning.
Obviously this is not the case in the Futurama Universe, so I'm led to believe the alteration of lightspeed is actually localized around the FTL vessels; a relativistic bubble that surrounds them, or even just their engine mechanism, meaning that they aren't breaking the SoL inside the bubble, but outside of it they are actually travelling many times the Sol.

Make sense? I know it seems silly to be applying hard science to a satirical cartoon, but this is what I do with my life.
