Gadsden Flag[edit]

Is that what Bender's Flag replaced? I clearly saw the word "Tread" but i wasn't sure what the name of the flag was. Can someone confirm?--Icyweaner2999 22:06, 31 July 2011 (CEST)

Short answer? Yes. Long answer? See short answer. -- DeepSpaceHomer 00:07, 1 August 2011 (CEST)

Retconned about Teller?[edit]

I don't think it's retconned that Teller died from lack of opal powder. I personally believe it's because he wasn't fed, similar to Max Weinberg's head. But whatever the case may be, this episode does not offer any indication of why Teller actually died in ItWGY. -- DeepSpaceHomer 19:37, 3 August 2011 (CEST)

The purpose of the powder was to preserve the head. If the head isn't preserved, the head stops functioning. Besides, he didn't actually die in Yonder, it was prior to that--Icyweaner2999 19:40, 3 August 2011 (CEST)

The purpose of the powder is to preserve the head, yes. But no specific reason is given for why Teller died, and it's a little forward to assert a cause of death when we have been given no information as to why he died. -- DeepSpaceHomer 19:55, 3 August 2011 (CEST)

- They still feed the heads....so I would assume the powder just prevents the heads from aging.

Right, and because the head aged, it stopped working--Icyweaner2999 03:39, 6 August 2011 (CEST)

Bezelling Planisher[edit]

What the hell? Googling this term yields "Did you mean 'Bevelling planisher'?" And the image results look nothing like the tool shown. Anyone happen to know what that tool is, its proper name, or what it's used for? --Buddy 02:03, 25 August 2011 (CEST) - A bezel uses a planishing hammer (much like the one shown in the episode) to smooth out precious metals like sivler and gold. While it would be a bezel's planisher, this is Fry calling it out...98.198.118.224 00:12, 24 June 2012 (CEST)

Cleanup[edit]

This article needs some major cleanup in the goofs section. It looks more like a forum than a wiki. I'll get to it eventually.98.198.118.224 00:13, 24 June 2012 (CEST)

Long s[edit]

"Bender's redesigned flag of the United States saying "Bite my fhiny metal aff" and Fry's misreading "Maffachufetf" (sic) allude to the character long s (ſ) that was in common use at the time of the American Revolution."

This is correct. But... it's not spelled the right way. See, f is not ſ. The long s may have, sometimes, but it's not mandatory a f-like nub at its middle, but on the left side only. So the following words are wrong in the cartoon:

"Maffachufetts" "Refolution" "paffed".

It should have been: "Maſſachuſetts" "Reſolution" "paſſed".

Same for "Bite my ſhiny metal aſſ" which is wrongly written "Bite my Fhiny metal aff". So ironically, it's Fry that is right and Benjamin Franklin who is an idiot.

"As is often the case in popular modern reconstructions, the long s is not used properly in spelling "Congress": two of the long 's's are used for the doubled letter, where originally it would have been spelled "Congreſs"—this usage is exactly what led to double-'s's being rendered as 'ß' in modern German." No. They are majuscule letters. It's not "Congress", but "CONGRESS". So no reason to change it.--173.245.49.240 13:29, 14 July 2016 (CEST)
