The Futurama Timeline
"I've seen a bundle of Futurama timelines around the place and I found them all to be inadequate, firstly because they don't, by a long shot, include every conceivable dated event from the show, and secondly because they don't show sources. It's easy to guess at dates from things like 'Pine trees went extinct eight hundred years ago' but that seems to be the limit of effort put in; no episode is quoted. So I went through, watched the whole 72-episode run again - yes, this is entirely my own work - and took notes in preparation for this, my considerably more exhaustive Futurama timeline."
