[[WMG:Fry's grandmother was somewhat promiscuous.]]
Think about it-despite dying on the same day that he was conceived, Enos is still considered Fry's grandpa. Not to mention that the whole MyOwnGrandpa issue was triggered due to Mildred coming on to Fry right after her supposed boyfriend-to-be was killed-that doesn't seem like someone who was grieving a whole lot. Mildred likely got around, and Yancy believes that Enos is his father because she's the last person he knows she slept with before being pregnant(Fry would've been omitted due to the awkwardness of a one-night stand after her last boyfriend died). Which leads me to my next theory...



Specifically, Enos is Fry's maternal great-uncle. He looks too much like Fry to not be related, and Fry already has a source of orange hair with his mom. While I first thought he may be Fry's maternal grandfather, that would result in Yancy Sr being fine with marrying his [[BrotherSisterIncest sibling.]] [[KissingCousins Cousin marriage]] is allowed in New Mexico and New York, so it could happen

When Bender went back in time to steal the cross, he went back a bit too early and suffered damage. He then rebooted himself into thinking he was Jesus because people thought he was divine in nature because he appeared to appear out of nowhere.

When Bender went back in time to steal the cross, he went back a bit too early and suffered damage. Maybe his real target was the Ark of the Covenant, and while it didn't kill him due to being a robot it knocked him out for centuries. He then rebooted himself into thinking he was Jesus because people thought he was divine in nature because he appeared to appear out of nowhere.

Zoidberg has alluded to having sex, [[DeathBySex despite dying after mating.]] When he came to understand emotions like love and disembowelling, his potential suitors may have wanted to sleep with him([[FanDisservice not sure why]]). So he could fufill a physical aspect of the relationship along with an emotional, Zoidberg had his male jelly-producing testes surgically removed. There's already a precedent for neutered animals who suffer DeathBySex(squids, for example) living longer because they're unable to reproduce. This may

** Stem cell technology was highly controversial, so by the 21st century making head-jars were made illegal. As a result, the Head Museum doesn't have any heads from people of our future.

to:

** Stem cell * The reason why all the heads seem to be 21st century or prior is because it's then the technology was highly controversial, so by invented, and was all the 21st rage so they cloned anyone even remotely famous. That, or there are other head museums for 22nd-30th century making head-jars were made illegal. As a result, the Head Museum famous people. Technology was primitive, which is why they can fix and reattach Hermes' head and body(and how his decapitated head didn't die thirty seconds after being separated), but President Nixon doesn't have any heads from people try to clone the rest of our future.

[[WMG: The Galactic Entity from "Godfellas" is related to the Nibblonians.]]
Assuming it's the result of a probe colliding with God and not the real deal. The Nibblonians existed 17 years before the Big Bang, and would spend those 17 years as the only things that to their knowledge existed. Then whatever counted for {{God}} in the Futurama universe arrived. They sent a probe to investigate this intelligence, which hit Him and created the Galactic Entity. This also CausedTheBigBang, which was God reacting to being hit by the probe. It's why Nibbler already knew of the time code-they're responsible for its existence. The ability to ignore causality is likely a consequence of the Galactic Entity being created at the moment of the universe. It's possible that this is why the Brainspawn came into being such a millisecond-[[NiceJobBreakingItHero they're an unwanted consequence of the probe colliding with God]].

[[WMG: Fry has Autism.]]
This [[https://www.reddit.com/r/FanTheories/comments/5knbpi/futurama_fry_is_really_just_autistic/ Reddit post]] laid out a pretty good theory on Fry being Autistic.

to:

* Does that mean Fry's parents [[BrotherSisterIncest are siblings]]? I guess genetic concerns aren't really an issue if your father is also your son. Fry's mom must have gotten [[TheDitz his brains]] (she's somewhat childish considering her obsession with sports) and Fry's dad got [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass his skills]] (it takes some level of skill to be a soldier in Vietnam, and he did make plans for possible nuclear/Y2K war).



[[WMG: Yancy Sr was named after his ''maternal'' grandfather.]]
Even assuming Enos was his father, he was only engaged and Yancy would've been born out of wedlock. Meaning the Fry surname came from Mildred, and her father would've been called Yancy Fry. This also means that he and his descendants are still related to the line of Yancys stretching back to the Revolutionary War. Though him having the same name as his grandfather applies [[MyOwnGrampa to his paternal side as well]].

[[WMG: Fry's house lasted so long because of his father.]]
Fry's dad is paranoid about the idea of an apocalyptic combat, being the Cold War turning hot or Y2K. Somewhat justifiably, considering his assumed father died in a nuclear blast. He made sure to doomsday prep the Hell out their house, which was so successful it remained untouched after a thousand years and ''two'' alien invasions. [[spoiler:Well, one, since Bender knew the house needed to survive long enough for history to be consistent/it's his best friend's house]].



* The only substances we know for sure are part of Bender are dolomite and titanium, since they had a role in the plot. That just leaves the other 20% of his person

[[WMG: Bender's defect is a DisabilitySuperpower.]]
It's why he does feats of strength no-one of the same model has. If a bending unit tries to exert too much strength, it will damage the circuits necessary for uploading into another body. A fuse is put in place to make sure that doesn't happen. Since Bender doesn't have an immortality unit, there's no need for a fuse and he can achieve his feats of strength.





to:

\n* Alternatively he can have sex, but he can't do so to reproduce without dying. As for why Decapodians don't do that? Because to them all sex is is a means of continuing their species, sex for pleasure isn't something they know.




to:

[[WMG: Zapp Brannigan isn't stupid. [[TheQuisling He's something far more insidious]]. ]]
As dumb as people can be, he'd have to have enough intelligence to even get into the military [[FakeUltimateHero and seem like the big hero]]. In fact, he's a genuinely brilliant general [[ObfuscatingStupidity who pretends to be incompetent]]. It's just that he's also a secret traitor to humanity. Originally the Earth military was a more effective, and one of the old enemy aliens wanted to get back at them. Since they couldn't win a fair fight, they went to sabotaging the armed forces with incompetent leaders. Zapp's a genius, but failed the psychology test. The aliens [[DealWithTheDevil offered him a deal]]. He would become famous as the champion of humanity, all while making massive tactical blunders [[WeHaveReserves and sacrificing his men by the droves]] so Earth will one day be conquered by the aliens. He'll get to live, and be seen as a hero by the aliens(or at least that's what they told him, [[RewardedAsATraitorDeserves they probably plan to kill him at the end]]). People like Leela have figured out [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk he's a childish buffoon underneath his bravado]], but what ''nobody'' has figured out is that underneath that is his true personality; [[EvilGenius a brilliant]] [[TheSociopath psychopath]] who not only willfully throws men to their death [[ItsAllAboutMe because it benefits his endgame]], but also [[AxCrazy because he's deranged and likes to see people die]]. It's why he failed the psychology test in the first place, [[MaskOfSanity and suppresses his true personality ever since]].

* Perhaps instead of being an immediate mutagen, it's a slow process. Mr Aster spent a century in the sewer, having to live in those conditions caused him to mutate ''horribly'' over time.

[[WMG: In "The Farnsworth Parabox", there is no box containing [[RuleSixtyThree a genderbent universe]].]]
There were apparently universes where everyone was eyeless, bobbleheaded and robotic for example. A key element is that Fry is the chosen one of the Futurama universe due to the existence of [[OmnicidalManiac the Brainspawn]] (who's more or less been around since time began) and [[MyOwnGrampa being his own grandfather]]. Robots can apparently reproduce so it would still work in that universe, and the eyeless humans could evolve another sense to be able to pilot a spaceship. The constant is that so long as there is a Fry, said Fry must go back in time to 1947 and conceive their parent. But what about [[RuleSixtyThree the universe where people were born the opposite sex?]] That Fry would have to stay behind nine months to be pregnant and give birth to their own parent, when the rest of the Futurama crew needs to get back to their own time in 24 hours. Rule 63 Fry would be stuck and live for 53 years before she could use Applied Cryogenics again, assuming she'd even want to go back after spending most of her life in the 20th century(as opposed to 2 in the 31st). And the Nibbler of this era would have no way of knowing, [[FridgeHorror so this Fry wouldn't be able to save the universe from the Brainspawn]]. "The Farnsworth Parabox" takes place after "The Why of Fry", so the Brainspawn of that reality would've already destroyed it due to no Fry to stop them. Even if the female Fry froze herself again, she'd be 80 years old and might die from natural causes in the two year interval between the end of "Roswell that Ends Well" and "The Why of Fry".

Hence why he [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemandsThem gets new powers right out of his shiny metal ass]]: Professor Farnsworth regularly unleashed his MadScientist tendency by upgrading Bender. It's the main reason why [[LazyBum Bender]] hasn't been fired-the Professor is playing MadDoctor ForScience on him. Being upgraded over and over goes to explain his inconsistent composition-by the time the series was perma-cancelled, all that's left of Bender's original is his head and spine ''at best''. Many of Bender's abilities are Farnsworth testing his inventions on him/reverse engineering Bender:

Every universe in the cycle is identical, right? [[SupermanReturns WRONG!]] Universe A version 3.0 is slightly off directionwise. Not to mention Farnsworth v1.0 killed its Eleanor Roosevelt who knows where and when. While each cycle seems identical, there are subtle changes. And such subtle changes can amount to larger changes over time (in this case, millions upon trillions upon trillions upon trillions of years). Certainly at one point we would get to a universe where the Brainspawn succeed in gaining all information in the universe, and then destroying it. Or maybe where Fry's story of "Anthology of Interest" played out, and a paradox destroyed the universe. The previous cycles were all due to natural reasons of entropy and age. If an artifical factor is put in, the cycle could and should stop eventually, be it Universe v4.0 or Universe vA googolplex and three
