If Nibbler froze him in 1999 so that he would be around to help defeat the brains in 3000 ("The Why Of Fry" ), how did he know that the cryogenics business (indeed, the same building) he selected would still exist after a thousand years?  confused Did he and his fellow Nibblonians secretly send money every month in order to ensure that Fry's cryotube would remain sealed? I would imagine that even a cursory inventory check by the lab's personel would reveal that Fry just appeared out of nowhere, had never registered to be frozen, ect. Or did the Nibblonians just erase/alter the memories of the cryo lab technicians so that they wouldn't question why Fry was there?

Nasty, this is Futurama's cryogenic lab. I don't think the company cares about who's frozen and who isn't. Actually, I don't think so, I know so.

Mechanic- You can't solve all your problems by freezing them, boss.
Cryogenicist- I think you're forgetting our motto...

Well first of all the nibblonians can see the future, so I guess they could have also predicted that the building would still be standing after 1000 years.  If they could not forsee that, I suspect they did just what you said, kept careful watch on the building and made sure that nothing happened to Fry's tube until it was time for him to be unfrozen.

As far as I see it, the Nibblonians didn't seem to have another alternative for having Fry alive in the year 3000, or if they did (like if they knew how to time travel) then freezing seemed like the best option to them, despite that risk.  I'm guessing they just kept a close watch on Fry until it was time for him to reawaken.

Yeah, that seems to be pretty much what I thought. That would also explain how the building survived Bender's attempt to escape the Swedes. The Nibblonians probably had some kind of hidden shield or something.

Not only do the Nibblonians see into the future, they can go to the past as well.  That's how they stuck Fry into the tube to begin with.  They believed Fry was the last hope to save the universe. 

It amazed me too how the building was able to stay intact.

Bender flew past the Cryogenics building, remember? Not over it.

Also, the Nibblonians did not go back in time. Their people lack that ability.

Yes but he destroyed the rest of the city anyway. You don't have to fly over something to blow it up. Trust me, I know.  big grin

Actually, he most likely just flew in a straight line, destroying what he flew over, but not the whole city. That would very easily explain why applied cryogenics wasn't destroyed. Remember that it was just a spur of the moment attack, not a planned wiping out of the city.

I agree with frisco that Nibbler would have put some sort of shield on the buliding to insure that Apllied Cryogentics would survive the required centuries.

Well the whole city was destroyed at some point as evidenced by the amount of damage it shows whenever we see it. You also need a pretty good reason to raise the street level. If the buildings where just to old they could have demolished them or something.

Yeah I was thinking about that. Even if Bender destroyed the whole city, but spared Applied cryogenics, knowing Fry was there, what kept the building on the same street level as New New York? Possibly the discovery channels Mega Movers?

I posted a theory about this a while ago but since I'm to lazy to look for it, I'll just give you the short version.

I think the building was tall enough that when they raised the street level it still stuck up above the ground. It would just seem shorted because some of it is now underground.

Didn't they in Jurassic Bark almost throw his dog into the cryogenic tube as it was annoying them, doesn't this show the attitude they may have of those who are in the tube. This laziness of workers and the gradual loss of records possibly over time may of meant why he would still be the tube.

Or maybe the company merged with Mom, most things in futurama have.

my favourite reply so far is the nibblonians sending money

If the nibblonians can see the past they could prolly tell that out of all the cryogenics labs in the world that one had the least chance of being destroyed without being tampered with. therefore they could stop from corrupting the nature of time and space by not having to put a shield or other means of protection in the past.

Of course the Nibblonians can see the past, they have memories. They wouldn't have had to worry about corrupting the nature of time and space because they didn't travel back in time.

Another thing to add. The note on the door said no power failures since 1997. So im supposed to believe there were no more for 1000 years. 0.o

 Yes. Even though New York was apparently destroyed (at least) twice in the following millenium.

A wizard did it.

On a more serious note, I think the Nibblonians had a hand in making sure the building was kept in-tact all those years. I imagine it wouldn't have been too hard to keep a secret eye on the cryogenics lab, since they live so long and would most likely never be spotted by the...less than apt human population. The workers at the cryogenics lab also don't seem to care who's in the tubes.
I  imagine things may have been a combination of the two offered solutions; the workers were negligent, and the Nibblonians sent funding to ensure Fry was kept frozen. As long as they were getting their money the workers wouldn't have given a darn where he came from or how he got there. Another possibility is that the Nibblonians mind-wiped everyone in the lab and simply added Fry into the records to there was no suspicion.
If there was a power failure or the rest of the city was destroyed and rebuilt, I don't think it would have been too difficult for them to put up a shield or generate some alternate source of power to keep Fry alive. After all, they are advanced and this was the saviour of the universe at stake, so the Nibblonians probably would have used every last resource they could.
