** It's intentional, as the 1937 is not a 100% real representation of how it was, but is a "recreation of 1937 from (Fuller's) youth." So, the aversion is that the programs are following what they've been programmed to, even mistakenly call the first world war "World War One."

* LawOfConservationOfDetail: In-film. Suspecting you're in a simulation? All you have to do is [[ScriptBreaking go somewhere the simulation doesn't assume you'd reasonably want to go]]. The places you live in are all rendered completely to avoid such accidents happening by chance, but animating and rendering the world way beyond what you're expected to experience is pointless and expensive. So the farther you go the least alive and moving the world becomes, until the simulation gives up entirely and shows an almost detail-free wireframe scenery.
