I may have misinterpreted what you said, and I'm no physicist.  But increasing the speed of light won't change normal light of the visible spectrum to gamma rays.  True gamma radiation has a higher frequency than visible light but that only means it has a shorter wavelength.  All forms of electromagnetic radiation, or whatever they're called i.e. radio waves, x-rays, gamma rays, sunlight, they all already travel at the speed of light.

I'm not sure but I think the formula goes like this:
speed of light = wavelength * frequency?

With speed of light as a constant.
I dunno any physicist out there?

EDIT: Wait now I just confused myself.

but they shouldn't need to increase the speed of light, the only way to travel at the speed of light would be to manipulate the universe in some way, because i don't think there will ever be a way to have 'infinite mass'

on the topic of that pic
it made me depressed

Yes but the *relative* frequency will still be increased, ie: the rate at which EM waves 'impact' a point in space, thus making any fixed point experience normal light as hard radiation.
Everything is relative.

EDIT: if you were to increase the speed of light you would also have to uniformly increase the various wavelengths of the electro-magnetic spectrum if you wanted to avoid being turned into a human fritter.

I see your point, but if they did find something faster than the speed of light I don't think they'd redefine the universal constant for the speed of light.  They'd call it something else, unless they redefine all the formulations of quantum physics.

No, the speed of light would still be the speed of light. Then you'd have post-light speed, or FTL. I've never fully understood why lightspeed should be a maximum, granted my physics is rusty... I just can't help remembering that at one time it was thought that humans wouldn't be able to travel more than 100 miles an hour.

Uhm...My brain can't interpret large amounts of scientific knowledge, especially to do with energy, so the past few posts confused and infuriated me. But I would think that, if at the time the nebula/message in the stars disappeared they were still visible from, say, earth, then wouldn't they still be visible a little while later when the crew got back to earth? Unless it takes them...okay, now I get it. I think. But then, wouldn't that mean that every time they go out far into space, it takes them hundreds of years to return home?   hmpf Arr, t'is very confusing.

Shippy moment I noticed today: Aww, Leela grabbed Fry's hand to yank him away from the internet ads in Bicyclops.

Yeah, but if Farnsworth was telling the truth in Clone of my own then light's universal speed was increased across the board. I argue that this is impossible without deep frying all organic life forms in their own juices.

I find the best solution to every problem is to believe what you want to believe.

And then when it turns out you were wrong, throw compost on it for more effective re-growth.

Then if the speed of light changed across the board and the fact they didn't get fried, one can only conclude the the sunlight does indeed travel at a speed slower than the speed of light. If that makes any sense...

Aww, but disproving Einstein is what all the cool scientists are doing. I'm just trying to be popular. And besides which, you know how much I hate speed limits. If I want to break the light barrier then damn it - I'll break the light barrier. The cops can stick their quantum radar gun up their quantum arses.

Hey, we can do both...which I shall attempt.
Fry and Leela are likes electrons and protons.  Fry being the electron and Leela being the proton.  Fry's world orbits around Leela much like an electron orbits a proton, let's just go with the simple Bohr model of an atom for now...
Everytime Fry screws up Leela gets angry, which is like exciting an atom.  Exciting an atom moves the electron to a higher energy state and hence a larger orbit making the electron further away from the proton.  So when Leela gets 'excited' it pushes Fry away.  Let's not forget if the electron gains enough energy it will fly away from the atom leaving one lonely ionized Leela.  To make matters worse, once the electron orbit is vacant other electrons can come to take its spot, ie an Adlai electron.
EDIT: Oh yea and opposite charges attract...

In a further note, the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle shows that electron locations cannot be predicted which correlates with Fry's unpredictable romantic behavior.

In conclusion...I'm talking out of my ass...

No fair, you changed the result by measuring it.

I think when Leela gets excited her nipples turn hard and her breathing becomes erratic. At such times fry should attempt to make his orbit as small as possible, and physics be damned

Wow. I just got shot right back to high school science.
I remember atoms! They're those..things...we're...made of...right?
Electrons, protons, neutrons...Haha, student science teacher saying he was representing a magnet when all he was doing was looking like a ballerina. Those were the days.

I read..in Readers Digest I think actually, that people with similar genetic traits are more likely to be attracted to each other. It said other things but I've forgotten them. Oh, about how looking at someone helps in them liking you somehow. So Fry should just stare longingly at Leela for hours on end...

Oh yea, and when Fry does something romantic he gets closer to Leela by dropping an energy level.  Everytime an electron drops an eneregy level it emits a photon, which is like shedding light onto their relationship.

Fry and Leela's relationship are like the stars,
at times you can't see them and when you can sometimes you ignore it, but if you actually stop and look you see something beautiful.

Does anyone else find it weird that Leela wears that amoount of lipstick when she's so young? (in the pic above)

Like teenage girls sometimes wear lipgloss, but not lipstick unless it's a really special occassion (like a formal or something).

Like a steam room. And leave them lots of Alcohol, and don't give them anything else to drink before they go in the room. It'd work. In fact I could imagen Bender and Amy doing that to them because they got fed up of waiting.

I only wear lipstick if I'm trying to impress someone, maybe Leela was trying to impress Fry.

Peh! Humans and their alcohol-dependency... Just give me some good old-fashioned cocaine.

I think Leela always wears lots of lipstick as an insecure subconscious way of drawing attention away from her eye.

But she'd still be in her 'adult' mind-set, so it might not have occured to her.

Yeah, I agree with the drawing attention away from the eye thing. But still, she looks too old for her age with lipstick like that.
