The Finglonger Edit
As I recall, the Anthology of Interest episode where this is shown ends with Professor Farnsworth stating 'So that's what life would have been like if I'd invented the Finglonger'. I know it's pedantic, but surely it's erroneous to include that as one of his inventions? 22.214.171.124 21:22, 7 April 2007 (UTC)
Invented at a later date? Edit
The finglonger seems to have appeared in episodes after the first episode with the what if machine, so it would appear that he then went on to invent it.
Not necessarily, it may be that the finglongerer already existed and was invented by someone else. Fransworth simply wished he was the one who invented it.126.96.36.199 10:57, July 13, 2010 (UTC)
Doesn't Prof. Farnsworth mention magic being invented? Maybe I'm just thinking of that Simpsons episode. Jecowa 22:40, 23 February 2008 (UTC)
Knowledge of scienceEdit
"Also his knowledge of science is varied in many ways. From been as cold as stark to believing that nothing is impossible, from taking the cutting edge for granted to imposing the insignificance of the laws of physics, from benevolence of aid to sadeisdic biology, from biologically believing something of an age, sex or species is uniform to cronanonic centric behavior.
- So I was trying to fix this paragraph so it will make more sense. But since it makes no sense whatsoever, I was hoping someone else would come along and be able to translate. I'm placing this paragraph here until it can be translated. -- Dhalia 18:58, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
Basically it's a list of contradictions. I believe it should be more like:
He can be cold and stark, or believe that nothing is impossible.
He can take the cutting edge for granted, or impose the insignificance of the laws of physics.
He can show benevolence of aid, or he can engage in sadistic biology.
He can also believe something of an age, sex or species will be all the same or he can...something.
Okay, I don't know the word cronanonic and I'm guessing it's either a serious typo or was just made up. However you can guess from the pattern that it's supposed to be something indicating he believes everyone and everything's fundamentally the same. 188.8.131.52 11:08, July 13, 2010 (UTC)
My God, which monkey entered the trivia section? Edit
Most of the lines are English but don't make any sense. Someone try reading that crap.
Age is off by a couple eternitiesEdit
Remember when he (along with Fry and Bender) went into the future two eternities?
