Clerical error?

Perhaps they are put in when they reach 160 or are terminal. Although, at
160, everyone would be terminal...

Also last weeks episode about Lela being one year late from work... It
looks like time transpires in the Futurama universe!

While playing with my new VCR with the Jog/Shuttle remote (now I can
jog in bed) I noticed the two drawers to the left of Dr. Fransworth:

7150
Ava Porter
b. 2790 d. Soon

7151
Eloise Porter
b. 2856 d. Soon

7152
Hubert J. Fransworth
b. 2841 d. Soon

Since Dr. F is 160 years old, the date must be 3001 (one year after


Fry's arrival). That would make Eloise Porter only 145 years old...

far too young to be a 'guest' of the NearDeathStar.

Any ideas? (Yes, I know it's a cartoon.)

I think your answer is right above. Note that by the letter 'd' it says
soon. I'd take that to mean that neither of them are dead *yet*, but
will be 'soon'.

D'oh, I really need to work on my reading comprehension.

Just noticed that Farnsworth's death is also listed as 'soon' so you can
ignore my initial blathering since it's pretty obviously wrong.

I guess Ava Porter must have been on the Near-Death Star for a
while...

At birth, everyone is terminal. Time and circumstances TBA.

I don't know the answer to that but I would just like to say that i AM Ava
Porter and my sister is Eloise Porter and we were very excited to see our names
fly past the screen. My brother-in-law is a writer for the show and somehow
they decided to use the names of my sister and myself. Just to let you all
know our actual ages, my sister is 12 and I am 15.

Now you can appear as a guest at comic book conventions and stuff.

Wow. This, for some reason, is the single greatest revelation ever seen on
this NG.

Maybe you could nag him about it at the next family reunion.
