One for you:

'It is a fine thing to be honest, but it is also very important to be right.'

Because,

'A fanatic is a man who can't change his mind and won't change the subject.'

I feel that...
'This is one of those cases in which the imagination is baffled by the facts.'

Heh heh...

Nice new avatar Coldangel. I liked your old one better.

Now I'm not going to enter the conversation between you and Xanfor because I am way out of my leauge. But I agree with you that Xanfor is a pendantic bastard but that's why we all love him.

When humanity faces peril, our society has a way of producing the kind of person we need to overcome... men like Christ, William Wallace, Churchill, Gorbachev, etc.
Fry may be an example of collective unconscious 'hive thinking', whereby the necessary 'tool for the job' is produced as a function of the whole.

I was thinking when I read this, you should read the Book Emergence by Steven Johnson.
It deals with the 'emergence' of intelligent patterns out of seamingly vast and complex processes. I think ant colonies was one of the topics covered, he looks at patterns in internet activity too.
I liked your idea anyway!

Similar concepts are examined in the anime 'Stand Alone Complex', where the Net itself becomes the spawning ground of an actual human collective consciousness, and in Neal Asher's Spatterjay series of sci-fi novels which involve the evolution of terrestrial hornet colonies into super-intelligent hive minds that communicate with humans.

Fry's lack of the delta brain wave is not a result of the human hive complex. It is a result of a genetic mutation that was caused by the fact that Fry is perverted and became his own grandfather.

Yes, Deca... (duh)
I was referring more to the circumstances surrounding and the chain of events that led to Fry's paradoxical self-genesis. All events were the result of human society unknowingly nurturing its own saviour.

I hate to be the one to resurrect the "Fry is Pope" topic, but how would you think Fry would react to obtaining that role? If he became space pope, wouldn't he have to change his behaviour immediately? Instead of him being naive and impulsive, he would have to mature into a stern, wise, universal figure of space christianity fast. Also, if he did become space pope, since it is a very prestigious and honorable role, wouldn't that mean that it wouldn't be accepted if he married Leela? I'm sure if somebody even found out that he had a romantic connection between the mutant during his time as pope would cause a universal uproar.

Probably similar to how he reacted to becoming the Emperor of Trisol.  smile

I sure couldn't imagine Fry as a Pope.

If we're throwing a party for jle, I gotta invite those Spetznaz guys she beat up a few weeks ago. They just got out of the hospital and they have a score to settle.

You all seem to be forgetting that it can't be a shippy party without Fry/Leela!

Leela: Fry, this is for you...

None taken.

As an attempt to spur shippy discussion, one thing I noticed recently was during I Second That Emotion:

Leela: I love every living creature.

Fry: Even me?

Leela: As a friend.

Fry: Damn.


I don't know why I never really caught that before.

I always thought that was the first real shippy moment in the serious, by which I mean it's the first time we really find out about FRy's attraction to Leela.

As far as first shippy scenes, what about I, Roommate?
Leela: Look at yourself. You're a wreck! You've got to find a new place to live.
Fry: (sexily) Is that an invitation?


Sure, it's just a clumsy throw-away come-on line, but I think he was actually holding out a little hope that it might work. (We are talking about Fry here.) You might think that at this early stage he's just trying to "score" but think of how many long lasting relationships start with nothing more than that?

What about SP3K?
[Fry holds out his hand to Leela. She gets the implant gun ready. Fry cringes and looks away. The gun clicks but Fry feels nothing. He opens his eyes and sees Leela drop her own chip on the floor.]
Fry: Your chip. What are you doing?
Leela: Quitting.
Fry: Why?
Leela: Because I've always wanted to. I just never realised it before I met you.
[She puts her hand on his and smiles. Bender puts his hand on top.]
Fry: What is the matter with you?
[Bender quickly takes his hand off.]

A guy wouldn't jump all over his new best friend in a situation like that unless he's serious about the woman involved. Plus, graduating from government agent chasing a job-desserter to joining him and reaching out to hold hands with him is a big leap for Leela in the romantic direction, no?

He actually met Leela first, and in any case, he knew Bender for, what, a few hours?

This scene alone has got to set a precedent for the entire notion of Fry / Leela shippiness, even though she goes on to insult him, date serious jerks in his face ( the mayors aid), etc, in later episodes. Of course if they had fallen in love right away, there might have gone a massive chunk if not all of Futurama to come thereafter?

My dear shippers, once you hear Dolly Partonís original 1974 recording of 'I Will Always Love You', the song made popular and sucky on the Bodyguard soundtrack, you will truly, and possibly for the first time in your entire life, know what it means for things not to suck. And at that point, your entire universe will turn upside down. Everything that used to seem normal to you will suddenly seem right.

Anyway, cute pictures.  smile
