This page needs lots of work, and lots of discussion. Also, we should be focusing on Wanted Pages, rather than making new pages that aren't really necessary at the moment. --Buddy 13:03, 8 March 2007 (PST)

Scent in Space

Actually, I don't believe scent particles are traveling through the vacuum of space. I think the scope actually analyzes the chemical composition of things (which can be done, and is done even today), then simulates the smell of it for the user. That's my theory, anyway. --13:03, 8 March 2007 (PST)

Smell simulation is possible in Futurama (ending Harold Zoid's career) so it makes sense. - Quolnok

Parallel Universe(s)

In The farnsworth parabox they jump between many parallel universes, but in I dated a robot the professor says there are only two.-- 04:29, 24 December 2010 (CET)

This is mentioned in the Parallel Universes article. --Sviptalk 13:57, 24 December 2010 (CET)
Simpler theory: "I Dated a Robot" is the fifteenth episode of the third season, and "The Farnsworth Parabox" is the fifteenth episode of the fourth season. Professor Farnsworth may have just discovered the other parallel universes by the time of 4ACV15, which should be a year after the time of 3ACV15, so he wouldn't know about them when answering Fry's question about the number of parallel universes in 3ACV15.
