DVD fact logistics question

I've just placed it in the trivia category for now, but it's proper location and importance to the article isn't really known by me. -Mini-Me 16:21, 27 June 2008 (BST)

I think it fits perfectly. It is merely a trivia fact (or perhaps trivial? OH THE PUNS!). --SvipTalk 16:48, 27 June 2008 (BST)

Yivo's space

This should probably be settled here before any more editing on the subject is done. In my opinion, the size Yivo was when shkle was dragged through, could easily support 6 billion people, but not 20 quadrillion. It's safe to say 20 quadrillion could not fit on the Isle of man, was Yivo bigger by enough to accomadate that many?Anarchy Balsac 01:37, 7 July 2008 (CEST)

Yes, but even if we settle on that being possible, you're going to have to tell me that 20 quadrillion couldn't fit on Bender's pirate ship. Because it is sort of implied that Yivo throws them all aboard his ship, though, it is not totally unlikely that Yivo moves some to their respective worlds. --SvipTalk 13:03, 7 July 2008 (CEST)
Easy, there were several pirate ships, it wasn't just one. The reason we don't see Yivo place people on the others is because Bender's is where the main cast goes.Anarchy Balsac 19:46, 7 July 2008 (CEST)

Correlation w/ 3guys1hammer

In a very creepy coincidence, not only was this being made at about the same time the Ukrainian Maniacs filmed the 3guys1hammer video, but Bender requests to die by "clumsy bludgeoning", anyone else notice this?Anarchy Balsac 19:24, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

Interesting. Just as it is interesting that in the Native American word 'akwa' has same meaning and pronunciation as the Latin word 'aqua'. But just like the Ukrainian film and the Futurama film, these two things have nothing to do with each other, and are purely coincidences, the more you attempt to find a connection between the two, the more consumed by it you become. And it all end in tears, as it is just a coincidence. --SvipTalk 19:32, 21 December 2008 (UTC)
I said it was a coincidence though. Just that it's an extremely creepy one.Anarchy Balsac 19:38, 21 December 2008 (UTC)
Wait, how would "clumsy bludgeoning" have anything to do with what happened in 3guys1hammer? Chris of the Futurama 23:54, 21 December 2008 (UTC)
3guys1hammer involved a very clumsy bludgeoning death of a person.Anarchy Balsac 00:05, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
Ohh, i see. Makes sense. Chris of the Futurama 00:09, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Yivo alone in shkler universe

If Yivo is alone in that universe, then why are there constellations in the background? -- 03:10, 27 March 2014 (CET)

Constellations are made of stars. --Buddy (talk) 04:51, 27 March 2014 (CET)

Superman: The Animated Series

Series 3 - Episode 10 - Unity. There's a lot of similarities between this and The Beast With A Billion Backs. Unity is an alien going from planet to planet, unifying all of their inhabitants under the banner of a religion, hive minding them in the process. It connects with all of them for a symbiotic relationship via tentacles, normally via the mouth or head instead of the brain. While in this context, the alien is a villain, there are enough similarities to make The Beast With A Billion Backs look like a humourously light hearted twist on it. I wouldn't be surprised if this was where some of the inspiration came from for this story. Worth adding this factoid in? -- the preceding unsigned comment was written by

Yes. I think so. Sanfazer: [talk] 17:16, 22 November 2014 (CET).
