Where did the code come from in the first place?!

Well, as mentioned in the article, it was originally supposed to be a lottery number. But since it had to be believable that Fry could read it in the mirror, it had to be mirrored. So its original meaning was lost, but the code was simply created from increasing from 1 to 6 in binary. If that is not what you are wondering about, please clarify your question. --SvipTalk 16:58, 6 April 2008 (PDT)

What I meant was, Bender from the future put it on Fry's ass in the cryogenic chamber, so I don't understand where it came from originally and I was just wondering if I missed something, but thanks for trying to answer my question anyway.

That... that is the entire joke. It proves one of the problems with time travel. You didn't miss anything. --SvipTalk 15:40, 7 April 2008 (PDT)
It is inexplicably without origin, much like a duplicate Planet Express Ship in Futurama (video game)

Logically, if you think about it biologically, the skin on which the tattoo is "inked" would eventually wear away due to an ininate amouunt of time of existance... Although, maybe when it's attached to Fry and Lars it's regenerated and healed like all skin cells... I dunno...

I sporked this from the Wikipedia article of Bender's Big Score's talk page

See wikipedia:Talk:Futurama: Bender's Big Score/Archive 1#Binary.
As evident on the commentary, there is no real meaning to the code now, there used to be. I am quite sure this is also explained in our article. It's simply an increment of binary 1 till 6, which is then "mirrored". It's as simple as that, just ask David X. Cohen. --SvipTalk 15:00, 24 May 2008 (PDT)

The code

Isn't the code actually the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 2 and 6 in binary? Abonbon 17:18, 2 June 2011 (CEST)

Oh wait, silly me. I thought you were supposed to first remove the lower half of the code. Abonbon 17:47, 2 June 2011 (CEST)
