Forgive me if this is a stupid question.  Considering the Futurama "timeline" is it the production order or the air date order that is considered a chronologically accurate representation of what happens in Futurama?  I ask this because some of the episodes (like TLPJF for example) aired on the exact same day that the episode takes place 1000 years in the future.  Also there are comments like Bender saying, "You know, I was in Italy last week."  Coincidence?  Or should I take it for granted that, in general, the air date of the episode corresponds with the Futurama timeline, except for episodes that take place in winter etc?

Or am I just reading wayyy too much into this?

This is the best we've been able to come up with. As you can see, it is impossible to read too much into this.

Cool, that clears up some of my questions, but raises more.  Assuming that it is impossible to read too much into this, then why are some of the episodes listed as being in winter months, but there is no sign of precipitation?  Other episodes definitely do have snow.  Weather control?

Remember the pilot episode?  Took place around New Years'.  Yet it looked like Spring.  Snow only appears in Futurama when it is important to the story.

Yet it was snowing on New Year's Eve 1999... =O Maybe the climate changed and stuff? It's a thousand years later, so... Remember when Leela mentioned Nuclear Winter? That could have something to do with it.

Yeah.  What with global warming and all it probably never snows on Earth except when they want it to, like near Xmas.  Weather controls. hahaha

Too bad the post office isn't as efficient as the weather service.
