1. According to Bender Bending Rodriguez's page there is no sub for "1" in AA2. What should I use instead?

2. What is the title Bendin' In the Wind based on? (There's a Simpsons episode called Doh'ing in the Wind too)

3. Do you know just how many greats are in great nephew, in relation to Prof. Farnsworth?

I first thought this is one of those stupid new game threads.

Please use it instead of starting a new subject.

1) Glermo: "It's whatever your imagination wants it to be!"

2) From the song "[The Answer Is] Blowing In The Wind"

3) See 1)

More specifically for 2):
'Blowin' In The Wind' was a sixties song by Bob Dylan. Bender started singing it in 'The Series Has Landed'. "How many roads must a man walk down, before you can call him a man?"

3) Actually, I always figured about 26 generations between Philip J. Fry I and Professor Hubert Farnsworth.

Fry was born in 1975.
The Professor was born in 2841; if memory serves, he turned 160 in 3001.

The average age of childbearing is around 33 1/3, leading to the generally used statement that there are three generations per century

2841-1975 = 866 years, or 8 and 2/3 centuries.

This means 26 generations pass between Fry and the Professor, making the Professor Fry's *deep breath*


I less than three math.

Note that this does all assume that there is no net change in the average age of childbearing, which seems unlikely given the ridiculously lengthened lifespans available in the thirty-first century and the libido apparent in even the oldest humans.

Moving but leaving open in case someone has an answer to question #1

no way the average child-bearing age is 33.3.

I guarantee its younger.

OhSnap: Not the average age of the first childbirth, average childbirth age period.

Average age for firstborn children is closer to 25 or 26, but when you take into account second, third, etc. -born children, it moves into the thirties.

Anyway, I was just leading up to the common definition of "generation" as a length of time by sociologists and historians: that one century = three generations.

EDIT: Damn typos creating mathematic impossibilities...
