In "Mother's Day" the Professer said he broke up with Mom seventy years ago, I did some math and he was 90 (I assume Mom was too) when that happened yet they both look like their in their early 60's (the Professer even had hair!) what's up with that?

I guess since people live longer in the future, they don't show signs of age as quickly.  After all, in current continuity he's over 160, though if you look at him he seems maybe in his 80s.  (Of course, how do we know what a 160 year-old looks like?)

plus he's had a few heart transplants... he's hips arent made of bone, maybe other bones in his body we're replaced with some other material... he tends to brake anckles (sp?) alot too...

He must have been 91 years old then because this was in the second year. I have seen 90 year old's with hair. Although it's not orange. But as Gus says "Maybe he had transplants"

I'd just like to know how Mom has sons that look to be in their thirties...

Maybe the Professor drank an anti-aging formula?

160 year olds look 80, 90 year olds look 45, 60 year olds look 30. Simple, because of new medicine in the year 3000.

Mabey he had age-adding surgery, but then put on a mask when he went back to 1985 in the Delorian to get Marty to take into the future, this would be so he would look like he had aged since he had been in 2015........or am I thinking of something else?

  :p   ;)   :D

My guess is, by the year 3000 things age a lot slower. Leela looks and claims to be 25, but Bender says otherwise. Fry's been there for five years and looks no different. And Farnsworth doesn't look anywhere near 160, as prevoiusly stated - he'd probably be in one of those Captain Pike wheelchairs hooked up to life support. It could also explain why Mom's sons look like they're 30-something (or maybe she hired them so she'd look more motherly, and Igner takes it too seriously).

Does anyone really believe Leela is 25?  I would put her in her early 30s.  I would put Amy at around 24.

I figured her more for 27-28 in the pilot. And I would think that the "still Young" stage would simply be extended in the future. So you still looked in your 20-30's for better then 30 years or so. Perhaps people have longer telomeres {sic?} in the future.
