Futurama Fungineers Manifesto
By The Futurama Fungineers

Futurama Fungineers – ‘Nerding where no nerds have nerded before.’

Winners of the Coveted 3008 LISA (Lunar Imperial Seal of Approval) Award

We, the Futurama Fungineers do issue this Manifesto to inform posterity of our guiding principles and beliefs.

  1. Acronyms are cool.

  2. Long, nonsensical acronyms are even cooler.

  3. The coolest acronyms involve scatology.

  4. Never use one part where three will do.

  5. We find that discharge of intestinal gas through the anal sphincter is – in any and all situations – both highly proper and extremely humorous.

  6. Aluminum foil hats and pocket protectors are a must for all well-dressed Fungineers.

  7. We’re not nerds; we’re just sartorially challenged.

  8. Beware of Quantum Ducks! Quark! Quark! Quark!

  9. A Fungineer is someone who is good with figures, but doesn't have the personality of an accountant.

  10. Fungineers calculate all the angles

  11. If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

  12. Research is the act of going up alleys to see if they are blind.

  13. If we knew what we were doing it wouldn't be called research.

  14. The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong, it usually turns out to be impossible to get at and repair.

  15. The Optimist says, “The glass is half full.”
    The Pessimist says, “The glass is half empty.”
    The Fungineer says, “The glass is twice as large as it needs to be.”

  16. People who do the world's real work don't usually wear ties.

  17. Quantum Mechanics - The dreams stuff is made of.

  18. Fungineer's Mottoes

    1. If it isn't broken, take it apart and fix it.

    2. To err is human, to forgive divine, but to check - that's Fungineering.
