Was the Dark Wizard who says, "oh sure, blame the wizards" Tim the Enchanter? --WhiteDragon 13:59, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

ok, after reading the article, apparently so. --WhiteDragon 14:01, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

Who is the headless character flying the ship with nixon and wernstrom? I vaguely remeber him but cannot recollect

I don't recall at the moment but it is most likely the headless body of Spiro Agnew, I know there was at least one mention of that but I'm not sure if it was this episode. Stardust8212 15:29, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

isn't it s05e01?!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.225.115.25 (talk) 03:25, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

Cultural references[edit]

As I recently brought up at the wikiproject (here) it is time we did something about the cultural references sections. I am moving all unsourced references to the talk pages for the time being in hopes of creating a better, more thoroughly sourced article. Please discuss this action at the wikiproject link above so as not to split it over 72 different talk pages. The information removed from the article follows. Stardust8212 01:22, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Cultural references[edit]

Foreign language messages[edit]

  • The rising thermometer shown after the news has an alien scale. The units are abbreviated with an Alien Alphabet "F". There are only two markings (also in Alien): 3, and 7.
  • The “Curious Pussycat” sign in Kyoto, Japan, reads 「私は、あなたのことをあなたのお母さんより愛しています。」, which is Japanese for “I love you more than your mother does.”
Some more "cultural references" sneaked back in, I'll leave it here for verification;

References[edit]

In its initial airing, the episode received a Nielsen rating of 2.6/4, placing it 97th among primetime shows for the week of November 11-17, 2002. [1]

The reason this information isn't in the article is because either Highbeam Research or Reed Business Information screwed up and titled the article "Ratings for Nov. 11-17" when internal evidence (specifically, the Monday Night Football game referenced therein) indicates that these are really the ratings for Nov. 4-10, 2002.

Number crunching[edit]

(Copied here from the Infosphere)

Out of curiosity, I hammered out a few numbers and found that adding a week to the Earth's orbit would increase the Earth-Sun distance by less than 2 million miles, and decrease its solar energy absorption by only 0.0376%. This doesn't seem like enough of a difference to negate the massive global warming they talk about in the episode... is it? --Lukeonia1 (talk) 07:08, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
