Coulombmeter

(Yes, I checked the spelling! ;) -- Are we sure about this? I mean, it seems like a stretch to think they intentionally used this obscure term, when it seems more likely that they just took a standard format of taking *thing you want measured*+ometer. Anyone? --Buddy 00:45, 10 July 2008 (CEST)

Hm... I cannot think of other ways of pronouncing "Cool-o-meter" other than what would sound similar to Coulombeter. I think it is more likely to be a coincidence, unless it is directly mentioned on the commentary that it is a pun. It seems a like a stretch indeed. --SvipTalk 00:53, 10 July 2008 (CEST)
Had this been any show other than Futurama I'd be inclined to agree. But with all the science references and stuff, I would say in this case it is highly unlikely to be a coincidence. And also, about the commentary, a lot of the participants have to be told(ever tacfully) by DXC that they're being a bunch babbling dumbasses because they often babble over stuff like this. Shazbot they almost babbled over the part with Bender's son in BWABB for frak's sake.Anarchy Balsac 19:51, 10 July 2008 (CEST)

Name/proposed move

How can we be sure that it is actually 'Cool-O-Meter' and not 'Coolometer'? The former looks like it should be pronounced 'Cool-oh-meeter' while the latter looks like it's closer to what the professor said, 'Cool-ohm-itre'

Of course if anyone has the DVD of this episode, you can check the subtitles... Marluxia.Kyoshu 11:41, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Alternatively, you can use our transcripts. And it does sound more like cool-oh-meter in the episode, rather than having the m on the second syllable, and none on the third. Sounds nothing like 'cool-ohm-itre'. --SvipTalk 13:56, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
