How the F*** do you freeze a tree without killing it? The sap would expand, and evey vessel in the trunk would split, effectively causing internal "bleeding" as soon as it is thawed.

So you'd have to freeze Pine Tree seeds

Which would be as pointless as freezing a Poodle, or even Poodle Seed...

Excuse me, but isn't a Wizard a souped-up Tim the Enchanter?

And didn't he do fire?

So...

How does a WIZARD freeze ANYTHING?

WHAT???? You mean they're not real? But..but..but...but, doesn't that also implies that Leela  :love: doesn't exists?  :cry:  :cry:

No, i can't accept that. I won't listen to you. [covers ears and start to sing loud: LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-I CAN'T HEAR YOU-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA]

He just said not ALWAYS true. Leela is real, it's ok. Just some things, like the extinction of pines might not be real. It's okay, it's okay.

Well, I thought that humans also had fluids in them, so why didn't all of Fry's blood veins get broken

Perhaps the freezer-thingy replaced the water in Fry's body with something else. Or even worse: Maybe Fry doesn't have any water in his body? We have already learned that he's kind of special...

I think there's a bug that has some kid of liquid in it's body that allows it to freeze without dying

Many cells burst when frozen. That's what kills severely frostbitten tissue. The idea with cryogenics is that they avoid this expansion somehow. I think the way they do it these days is saturating the body with antifreeze of some sort. But theoretically flash freezing like what happened to Fry might work too.

Hey I've got the answer!

What they did was use the DNA from a dead Pine Tree so that they could bring that type of tree back to life. Technology in the year 3000 has progressed a lot & it was possible to bring them back to life, In fact the technolgy was around in 2308.  :)

Perhaps the answer lies somewhere in the middle.  First off, it's obvious the trees on the ski slope can't be alive.  Secondly, perhaps the concept of a "Jurassic Garden" is correct.  Think about it:  If someone cloned dinosaurs, who'd be the first to get them?  Only the super-rich could get them, as reare as a commodity as they would be.  Maybe that goes for the much more mundane flora and fauna like pine trees and poodles (and whiskers on kittens...).

I'm about sick of people using "a wizard" as a viable explanation.  Animation doesn't suffer as much from continuity errors as live-action, where take-to-take differences cause "god farts" that turn Appaloosas into Arabians.  Posting "wizard" has become a cliche of itself, as if declaring to the world: I have nothing intelligent to say, but I'm going to say it anyway!

Blah, blah, blah, pine trees.

When trees are put in extreme cold, they explode. The cold makes the sap freeze and the moisture freezes too. The bark becomes brittle, and the pressure builds eventually, they will just burst, which can be very dangerous, since pointy chucks of wood fly off in all directions.

Edit: I can't believe this thread is still alive.

You think we're being serious? That's one of the saddest things I've ever heard.  The wizard explanation is a joke, pure and simple.  It actually takes a jab at over-analytical people who take things too seriously and cry foul over any and all major or minor inconsistancies.

Go Nix. *sits in deep and profound admiration*

I think that "Wizard" is rather overused tho.

I understand that, and I agree it was hilarious.  But like every hilarious tidbit it lost its humor due to abuse.  I'm not against making fun of nitpickers, my roomate is far worse than I am, but to use the same joke over and over...  I dislike cliches.

I hope everyone understands that this post and my previous post are not personal attacks.  Especially the barb about not having anything intelligent to say and saying it anyway.  I'm certain that there is always a reasonable explanation for every mixup.  Even if it is a genuine continuity goof, it's still platitudinous to use "wizard" as a synonym.
