Change name?[edit]

Aw crap, i want to move the page to change it's name to attack of the killer app, but the name alerady exists. But the page with that name just redirects back here! Freekkiller7 20:50, 19 May 2010 (CEST)

You will be asked to delete the page in order to move, if not, then wait for a Sysop to come around to do it. The redirect would in the meantime make up for this. I can't always be available. --Sviptalk 02:51, 20 May 2010 (CEST)
And the countdown's new posts are conveniently scheduled for during my designated sleep period. - Quolnok 06:35, 20 May 2010 (CEST)
Same, ah the woes of living a couple of hours in the future. --I'm Scruffy... the Janitor. 07:45, 20 May 2010 (CEST)
Mweh, i already fixed it by copying everything from 6acv03 to the redirect page and reversed. (I did it an hour after i wrote that) Freekkiller7 12:50, 25 May 2010 (CEST)
That's not good enough, which is why I reverted your edits. Using that way will only disrupt the history of the page. History is important, as certain pieces of content may be kept there. There is no sense of letting a full history page turn into a redirect page for no reason. --Sviptalk 13:26, 25 May 2010 (CEST)
Okay, but how do you move a page to another name if there is already a redirect with that name then? Freekkiller7 19:46, 31 May 2010 (CEST)
Delete the other page; then move. Even the interface can figure that out. But you don't have the rights to delete pages, however. So instead; just alert a sysop. --Sviptalk 20:31, 31 May 2010 (CEST)

fix to the allusions category[edit]

currently the allusions section says that the puke-me-puke-you is an allusion to the fu-fme but I am pretty sure that it is a reference to the push me pull you from the original Dr. Dolittle book and original movie.Ketchuphed

Additional Trivia: Unbiased Reviews.mom[edit]

In the in-store commercial, Mom talks about her favorite app Twitcher. She says "Don't take my word on it, Unbiased Reviews.mom says Twitcher is a killer app". "Unbiased Reviews.mom" appears to be a website owned by Mom due to the domain name. This appears to be a trick to mislead people into thinking the website is actually unbiased when it could be in fact bias. This appears to be a parody of the myth that McDonalds owns a company called 100% real beef, and places this trademark on their products to mislead people into thinking it's really 100% beef when it's just the name of the company. ( Reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McDonald%27s_urban_legends#100.25_Beef_.28company.29 )

I would suppose it's just a coincidence. And Mom owning unbiasedreviews.mom is implied. Aki 09:26, 2 September 2010 (CEST)

2 Goats 1 Tub[edit]

Is it just me or do you guys also see a hint in Bender's comment "What comes out one head, we feed to the other." to "2 Girls 1 Cup"? Also the wordplay "2 Goats 1 Tub" can't be a coincidence.

I think it's a little dark for Futurama to reference 2 Girls 1 Cup, but you never know. Also, do they even say "2 Goats 1 Tub" in the episode? I don't remember anything like that in Attack of the Killer App. Fan Futurama 22:33, 7 September 2010 (CEST)
No, "2 Goats 1 Tub" is never phrased in the episode, what makes this possible hint either coincidental or very subtle to still suit all audiences.
