There was a recent effort by "Ostab Bender" in the futurama newsgroup to revive the capsule writing biz.
As the responds in the group were scarce, I proposed to have a go here. Please try to add where you can and please stay on topic in this thread. Make clear which section you are adding to, thanks. Here we go:

 The sea serpant body in the waters by NNYC at the beginning?

 Utah's name in 3000 is made up of the alien language?

 Magnets cost $32 at Fisherman's Worf?

  ... that Fry swiped the headband from the hippie skeleton?

  ... that Leela wears a camisole?  (I had her figured for the
      sports bra type.)

  ... that Fry's microbus went down Lombard Street, just like
      the "Lisa Log" did in _The_Simpsons_ this season.

  ... that they forgot to have rollerskating nuns, Critical Mass
      bikers, antique trolleys and cable cars, and other things
      that might make you realize it's San Francisco?  (The "I
      <Heart> Men" button was a nice touch, though.)

 Jefferson Starship was one of many names of a rock band that has been around
 from the 1960's to the 1980's. First known as Jefferson Airplane, the band
 scored big hits with "White Rabbit" and "Don't You Want Somebody to Love".
 Years later, the band changed their name to Jefferson Starship, with the band
 then dropping the Jefferson in the 1980's, when they made such hits as "We
 Built This City" and "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now".

 The futuristic state name for Nevada is a crack at what happened in the state
 during the Cold War.  During this time, the deserts of Nevada was the home of
a
 few nuclear tests in which nuclear bombs were detonated.

Jym Dyer

 "Led Zeppelin" is also the name of a band from that era.
