So in 'Fry and the Slurm Factory', when Slurms is partying to make the cave collapse and kill the Slurm Queen, Slurms tells Dixie and Trixie that they have 'served him well these past 40 years.'

No way are those 2 girls above the age of 40 years, so what gives?

Unless it's like what most people came up with in the 'why doesnt fry look like that now?' thread, AKA

The best excuse I can come up with is that visual age reduction creams work really well in the year 3000.

Yes, sam discussion points I made in the other thread. It's the future. There's plenty of technology that could allow them to look younger than they would be if they were living in the 21st Century.

Also, I believe he said, "You girls have served me well these past 40 years." "You girls" could mean all of the girls that have worked with him, not just Dixie and Trixie, meaning that the 40 years are in reference to his total career and not their total career.

Plastic Surgery. Also, maybe, the Hot Tar Pits from 'Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles".

When I first heard that line I assumed that was the joke. That and people live longer in the future - just look at the Professor's age! They have probably slowed down the aging process by then.

In addition have you seen certain movie stars nowadays? Some Many have had plastic surgery, but others don't look damn aged past 30 even if they're 60.

I too assumed it was a joke. But there have been several clues in the show that age is quite different in the future, much like how the life expectancy in the year 2011 is, what, twice the one of 1811?

Take this, as well as the age of the Professor and the other elderly, and then include the kids. Cubert and Dwight were 12 in season 2, they ought to be in their early 20s now. I think it's safe to assume that people age much slower and live much longer in the 31st century.

Yes, I definitely think it is because the aging process has changed in the future.

I on the other hand think the future has changed the aging process...

Trixie and Dixie can never die.  Only the actresses who play them!

This. Otherwise Farnsworth would be shrivelled up to the point of just being bones.

Though I am sure the reverse can hold true, and there are ways in the future to make yourself look horribly prematurely aged.
I would laugh if Petunia only turned out to be in her late twenties.

It's the future, if they're able to increase the speed of light, and keep dead heads alive, then I'm sure they can look very young. They looked the same in ITWGY.
