He wears aluminum foil on his head to avoid other peoples' brain waves affecting him. Although in the first episode it appears that he does not like Fry that much, it is shown in later episodes that he had a strong friendship with and acted as a father figure to Fry.
It is revealed in Bender's Big Score that he likes Fry because Fry's life is so horrible it helps Panucci feel better about himself. Panucci is noticeably upset when Fry goes missing and he takes responsibility for Fry's pet dog Seymour Asses named as such after Fry feeds the dog pizza delivered because of a prank phone call.
In Bender's Big ScoreFry creates a time paradox by going back in time and living out his old life and thus continues working at Panucci's Pizza.
Shortly after he arrives, Fry asks Panucci if he can live in Panucci's upstairs storeroom, which Panucci allows. Pazuzu voiced by David Herman is a gargoyle who Professor Farnsworth owned and put through college.
He has a French accent and a son. He returns at the end of the episode to rescue the Professor and "earn [his] freedom. Randy Munchnik voiced by John DiMaggio is a stereotypically gay man dressed in pink, who speaks in an effeminate voice.
Originally, he is depicted with blond hair, but sometimes appears with brown hair. John DiMaggio says he is his favorite character to voice. The original design for Randy was very different. He was originally an old man in a mob, with his name in the script for "I, Roommate" literally "Man in Mob". DiMaggio changed the voice and therefore the character. He presides over weddings and funerals of robots and humans. His speech patterns, accent, and mannerisms are modeled on those of stereotypical African-American Evangelical preachers specifically, black churches.
During the Season 6 episode " Ghost in the Machines ", Preacherbot performs an exorcism on the Planet Express headquarters to drive off Bender's ghost, which has begun to possess various machinery in an attempt to kill Fry. Sewer mutants are humans mutated by years of pollution and radioactive waste poured into the sewers under New New York.
Because they are considered genetically inferior they were forbidden by law to travel to the surface without special permission until the events of " The Mutants Are Revolting "so they reside in a community made out of objects flushed down toilets. Among the more prominent mutants in the series are Dwayne, Raoul and Vyolet. Dwayne voiced by David Herman is a mutant with two noses and a large forehead. Raoul voiced by Maurice LaMarche is the "Supreme Mutant", the democratically elected leader of the sewer mutants.
His most notable mutation is a third arm, which in his first appearance had grown in place of his right ear but above it in later appearances. Vyolet voiced by Tress MacNeille is a chain-smoking mutant with gills and a pig nose; she seems to be romantically involved with Raoul. He first appears as a customer at the pizzeria where Fry mistakenly believes him to have invented gravity for which Hawking accepts credit "Yeah, sure.
Why not? After learning of Fry's inter-dimensional experience, he arranges for him to be kidnapped by the VPAR. Hawking also appears in The Beast with a Billion Backs as his own head in a flying jar, leading a scientific convention organized to study and discuss a tear in the universe.
He says that despite writing a book about it, he has no idea what it is, although he has already cashed the check he got for writing it. Apparently he has the ability to shoot lasers that stun people from his eyes; he himself is surprised, remarking, "I didn't know I could do that" after stunning Professor Farnsworth and Professor Wernstrom.
Due to a debilitating, long-term illness, Hawking was unable to speak with his own larynx, but his computer-assisted speech device was a trademark voice in popular culture.
He was about to marry Leela, until he discovered that a paradox can not be in the normal time line, and decided to cancel the wedding, because he was really a paradox-duplicate of Fry created when the original Fry who had travelled back to went back a second time to eat a pizza, the original Fry who went back for the pizza freezing himself after a close call with a brainwashed Bender while the one who never did that moved into an apartment above the pizzeria where he worked.
He lived there for twelve years, during which he spent time with his family and befriended the narwhal Leelu, until an assassination attempt by another brainwashed Bender burned away his hair and damaged his larynx. After the war with the scammers was over, Nudar tried to force Lars to reveal his version of the time-travel code, but Lars sacrificed himself to release another frozen Bender set to self-destruct, killing himself and Nudar. They seek to seize the Earth by obtaining as much information as possible from humans, in addition to seizing all the valuable objects of the planet thanks to the time travel code.
After they took over Earth, their fleet of solid gold Death Stars was destroyed by Earth's remaining ships in an assault led by Leela and coordinated by Hermes. Nudar escaped the destruction, but he was killed by the sacrifice of Lars Filmore, a temporal paradox duplicate of Fry.
Throughout the years, their relationship blossomed, and they became best of friends. Fry was heartbroken when he learned that Leelu was being released into the wild.
Yivo voiced by David Cross is a sentient extraterrestrial being from another universe who appears in The Beast with a Billion Backs. He communicated with universe "gamma" through the space-time hole, using his tentacles, which he used initially to mate with humans.
He begins a "romantic relationship" with the inhabitants of the other universe, but even after the universe agreed to move in with Yivo, Yivo 'broke up' with the universe when Fry sent a letter back through the rift to Bender, as Yivo couldn't stand the idea of anyone making contact with the original universe. A polyamoristshe lived with four other men which Fry was unable to cope with, causing him to break up with her. He is a creature with the intention of ending the universe, and the last of his species.
Towards the end of the film it is discovered that he is really the desert muck leech that lived on Mars, and that Leela welcomed as a pet to prevent his death. He is ultimately defeated and eaten by Zoidberg. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Why not fight against the way things are going, and try to go where we want to go in the first place? The gist of it is that we find a way to aim, while using the flow to our advantage, to accomplish something meaningful. And the more open we are to all the different kinds of things that are meaningful to us, rather than trying to force a specific one, the more likely we will succeed.

If the universe or multiverse, if you prefer is indeed generating a pure mathematical randomness of all possible patterns which physicists seem to think is very likely — with entropy being the process of evolution where all the stuff that exists is continually being divided into smaller parts and recombined into new things — then we end up with a reality that grows infinitely more interesting, complex, challenging, fun, weird, and unpredictably beautiful with each passing moment.
This means that while it might seem that everything that possibly could be created, invented, explored, discovered, and known might already have been created, invented, explored, discovered, and known, in the next moment those things will fall apart and reorganize themselves into totally new things, being created, invented, explored, discovered, and known. Tilting another way. Ask someone you never thought of asking before.
See this post for a more detailed breakdown of the generations. I might have combined two different generations here. This will allow the whole system to turn into something almost magical, the way a drop of ink in clear water will swirl into chaotically stunning patterns…. The future will be one where there are infinite possibilities, and our wildest dreams of today might pale in comparison to even just every day life in a decade or two.
Humans are inherently messed up. Life is purposeless. And, ironically, I both want to reassure them that they are mistaken, and let them know that whatever they feel is what they should feel. Ideally, we can allow our emotions to be fully heard and respected and expressed before we try to solve any intellectually complex problem. This way we allow ourselves to focus on the past first, and then the future, using the parts of our brain that are best suited for each of these things.

Thank you so much! I got into how we can respect and care for our bodies, and their natural, normal, generally healthy reactions to problems, fears, danger, threats, etc.
The general idea is identifying the particular emotion and problem, and then practicing in a reasonably comfortable space with a similar low level problem to move just a little bit towards improving the situation in some way. Happiness seems like such an undefinable, inexplicable, unknown thing sometimes.
And why is it so addictive for some people to gamble? The algorithm of life is one for generating new life, and pretty much nothing else. Without that purpose in life, it would not continue to exist. And one way it does that is by having the super complex human brain reward itself for doing certain things. Thinking, mostly. Everything thinks. Therefore it is. What is thinking? This law essentially says that the universe starts with simple, boring, somewhat predictable stuff and grows increasingly more complex, diverse, weird, and unpredictable.
And it does so through a simple set of instructions for dividing things up and recombining them in novel ways to produce all possible combinations of matter and energy. So the best way to stay as safe and uninjured in life as possible is to be expecting the seemingly unlikely to happen, at least somewhat often. There are a variety of ways to do this, which I go over in this podcast, in a fairly meandering way. Which is, of course, what you might be starting to expect! And as for me, I expect that you will be able to find yourself finding ways to embrace the weirdness in some weird and seemingly unpredictable way.
Including, perhaps, noticing the reality that sometimes things are weird and sometimes they are wierd. First we contract into ourselves, defining the edges of who we are and what we want, and then we can look around at our immediate environment to see what the edges are of what it is and what it wants, and then we can look for ways to recombine ourselves with our environment by dissolving the edges between us and our world in a way that is most useful for helping us create a better world.

Through the very personal, open, and honest stories we tell — of where we were, where we are now, and where we want to go — while using our greatest losses to understand what is most meaningful to us and how we want to honor our past while creating a better future — one that supports and inspires younger generations — a new culture is emerging.
But it sometimes takes a while for that to be recognized, as large things such as whole planets take a while to pivot around the various corners of reality. Speaking Up process Storytelling with a purpose. Life: Earth Mission Diagram. Governmental Personalities diagram.
Whatever way works! And, while a bottom-up, living organism system is definitely no utopia as we all know, when our bodies get sick or hurt or, eventually, diethe goal of a healthy organism is to try to give every individual within the system what it needs to function as well as possible, while being flexible and resilient through complex networks that can temporarily work around malfunctioning areas until they can heal and be put back online and working for the system again.
The health of the system grows exponentially, meaning that we can repair a huge amount of damage pretty quickly as long as we focus on actually doing so, freely, and with a goal of system health, rather than competition. Everyone for President Reddit community. If you and a bunch of others were starting a new colony from scratch, on another planet, or just an island on Earth, what form of governance would you want to use? A proposal for governance in the post world — just a little something that I found interesting on the wikileaks website.
Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. The more forcefully something is contracted, controlled, and contained, the more forcefully it will soon become expanded, uncontrolled, and uncontained. But if there is an outlet, even just a single way to move into a lower pressure area, then the violence can be avoided. Yet this seems to be one of most ignored laws of nature when it comes to leaders and policy-makers in the world, at all levels, and in all fields.
Add even more forceful repression, contraction, control, containment! More punitive, threatening, harm-based laws! More insults! More alienation of those who are outside the norm! In general, more lack of freedom all around. But we understand, deep down, through both our instincts and our science, that the only cure for violence, on all levels — physical, emotional, intellectual, and philosophical — is more freedom to be ourselves, our weird, abnormal, eccentric, creative, exploratory, awesome selves.
More outlets for individuals to express their unique passions. More flexibility. More openness. More space for all the diverse individuals to be themselves, whether that is LGBT, Muslim, Christian, agnostic, weird-looking, normal-looking, Republican, Democrat, Green, Libertarian, authoritarian, historian, singularitian, fat, skinny, blind, eagle-eyed, dark skinned, light skinned, female, male, mixed, genius, simple, New Aged, old aged, autistic, borderline, histrionic, hyperactive, shy, funny, dull, happy, sad, mad, mammalian, culicidian, ornithorhynchidian, Martian, or robotian.
The universe makes all of us individuals to fill a niche, and as a society we can choose to try to block individuals from finding their niche, and suffer the backlash, or we can choose to help individuals find their niche, by giving them the freedom to fully, honestly, and openly express who they are and want to be.
What we truly need is freedom. Freedom to be human, or whatever else the universe has made us to be. Freedom to be and do whatever we feel most joyful, passionate, excited, and delighted about when it comes to what we want to explore and create in life.
So, I wonder, how can we turn the dialogue around to promoting freedomrather than safety, flowrather than boredom or overwhelm, in our world? A long and wonderfully winding tour of the past 60 years of humanity and how each human generation of 20 year periods has split off from and then recombined cultural norms and ideals from their elders and future Earthlings to elevate our species, and all of life on Earth, into thinking in three dimensions, at governmental leveland then, eventually, in all four, at government level and beyond, for some truly brilliant evolving.
Answer: Stop being so greedy and violent, and instead connect to one another! How can we be our best, interpersonally? Answer: Stop being so focused on just yourself, and instead play games together!
How do we want to collectively solve problems and improve the lot of us? Answer: Stop being so focused on just you and your pals and competition, and instead start collaborating with all of the diverse Earthlings — animal, vegetable, mineral, and otherwise — in solving the problems of life on Earth in a fun and exciting way!
