Listen, this is not earning you any friends. It's earning you enemies in fact. Stop posting fake things and keep on-topic.

Oh, jeez, enough with the newbie bashing. Yes, Future Shock has made his fair share of annoying posts, but it seems as if he's trying to rectify the situation now. He's still kind of frustrating at points, but at least he's earnestly trying to stop with all the pointless spamming.

Leelasbluehair is just, um, out-of-touch with reality. And possibly retarded. But the goading isn't going to do any good.

And Fry_lover is only 11, so it'd probably be nice if we cut her some slack. At least she starts threads in the proper boards, tries to remain on-topic, and has a genuine interest in discussing the show.

It would be a sign of insanity to believe that you were involved with a cartoon character, let alone married to one, but hey if you have no problem with being insane, then by all means go right ahead, just stay the heck out of the public sphere talking about it, no one really wants to know.

Okay, screw defending the newbies. Leelasbluehair, you can't possibly be a real person. And if you are, then I agree with suss's diagnosis that you are, in fact, insane. So good luck with that.

Yes, stay Defender of the n00Bs, but he can't be insane. If we're supposed to think logically, his goal is to not get any friends, but I don't know why anyone would want to do that. Maybe he's not very social and he likes to think that he can write illogical things like I'm married to a cartoon character and he won't get backstabbing in return (backstabbing just a metaphor.)

There were some news articles about a man marrying an inflatable cartoon character, and becoming boyfriend with a female in a comic, but one of his previous comments stated "Once I cheated on her and she kicked my ass so much I nearly went blind" which could not have been done when one is twi-dimensional and the other is three-dimensional.

So, logically Gorky, I guess he is insane. Well, maybe just inane.

Best friend from Futurama: Amy.
Best friend from Peel: Bianca. smile
Awww thats sho shweet. puke

I'm not sure who I could be friends with. Not Leela because she's too dependent with guys (like Shawn - "wait a second, they've all been saying that, even Shawn!"). I would say Bender but the cigars and beer would get to me. Not Fry as much as I love him because he's too stupid for me.

Probably either Hermes or Amy. Hermes because he likes to be efficient and organized, like me, and he likes working with numbers as do I. And I too have a mini filing cabinet, not for my traveling papers though just cuz! And Amy because she doesn't care what guys think she just takes charge and moves on...I can agree with that laff

Fry is actually incredibly intelligent.  This is a misconception that he is stupid.  On various occasions he uses a highly varied and scholarly vocabulary.  He also saves the day in a myriad of ways.  In fact, he's probably a genius and hence most people can't see how his superior intellect works.  This would also explain why he seems like he's doing practically nothing through out his life; most things bore him because they do not properly stimulate him... and yet he can play with yo-yo... because while he's playing with the yo-yo he's mathematically deducing its movement in three dimensional space... in his head... in real time.  He often comes up with unique solutions to problems that nobody else around him notices and can bring together patterns that others do not recognize.  Furthermore, his genetics prove to be of intelligent quality with the Professor being the way he is.  Due to the lack of his Delta brainwave, Fry may possibly be the smartest individual in the history of the Universe; he understands infinity on a level that most can't even dream to comprehend, and its implications faze him in no small manner.

I think it's more likely that half the time Fry makes himself seem stupid so that people around him have less problems interacting with him.  Remember, most people feel awkward and envious and useless when occupying the same space as someone with a vastly superior intellect.  The other half the time Fry is vomiting out pieces of thoughts that are racing through his brain.  He's probably processing three million times the amount of information that most people do in one twenty-third of the amount of time by my calculations.  So, when he's conversing with others, or playing a part on Who Dares to Be a Millionaire, the little bits that come out seem grossly retarded.  

Also note that with that last example... Fry has no desire to be a millionaire.  Through out the series he makes and loses more money than most of the human population combined; he does this on several occasions and very deliberately.  For example, in the episode a Fishful of Dollars, note how he goes about getting the money out of his bank account.  He already knew exactly how much was in it because he knew the interest rate, how much he had left in there, and how long it had appreciated interest; when he faints, he does so just to impress his friends with his "new" found wealth.  Furthermore, during the course of that episode he wastes his entire fortune on general mementos from his old life, and most of it on something that he wanted to share with his friends; he spent 1 kajillion dollars just so his friends could enjoy anchovies... because he doesn't care about the worth of imaginary money.  

To backtrace one last time.  On Who Dares to be a Millionaire... Fry's final response to the question "What do you hammer a nail in with?" is less of a literal answer and more of a philosophical contemplation on the nature of tools and our interaction with them.  He then spends the entirety of that episode pondering on the nature of the answer he posited, going so far as to even use it in a death-defying stunt to save life.  Furthermore, note that he was not afraid in the final scene of that episode.  Why is this?  He'd already extrapolated all of the variables related to the death machine, and knew that he could prove that he could stop the death machine by HAMMERING IN A NAIL....WITH A NAIL.  

Kind of makes you think.... about what our true purposes and natures lie.

Wow, That is some analysis of Fry. I would have imagined you excelled in English where you had to find the "deeper meanings" behind poems and novels and such. It pretty much involves having to "spin" any evidence that is presented to you. I really sucked at it. tongue

The answer to all literary questions is that whatever work you have just consumed has some sort of meaningful insight pertaining to the human condition.

Example:
  Teacher: We just read Grapes of Wrath.  What did you think the author was trying to portray in this novel?
  Response: He was trying to discuss how people lived during the Dust Bowl era and how that pertains to the human condition.

Your answer is automatically correct even though you didn't actually say anything on a truly evaluative level and barely acknowledged that you possess any knowledge about the contents of the work in question.  That's because everything that human beings do relate in some way or another to how we perceive existence.

Note that this is vastly different from Fry because Fry is not human.  He's not even humanoid like many of the aliens and mutants through out the series who can probably empathize and understand the human condition to a great degree.  Fry is completely unique within the Futurama Universe and stands alone between sentience and impossibility.

Wow, where were you when I was doing that stuff ten years ago? Oh right, I knew you the smile

Now you lost me. If he is not human what is he? His own sentient being? Luckily parts matched up with his grandma though to procreate.

Both his parents were human though. Unless you're trying to get at a Holy Family thing or something.

Not holy family.  He is the product of all the sum of all his days, and his parents, and himself which is the sum of all his days, and his parents, and himself which is the....

He's the product of an impossible time loop created by himself.  By all means he should not exist.  But he does, and so he resides on a level that no other organism has been able to ascend to.  He is an uberhuman by any relative standard.

Something of interest is his general reaction to the spiraling creation/destruction loop of the Universe itself in the Late Phillip J. Fry.
