Baffling Flaws in Famous Sci-Fi Technology from Cracked.com

This was the main post on cracked.com today and it was titled 6 Baffling Flaws in Famous Sci-Fi Technology. I read them all, but the one that struck me the most. The Technodrome from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I loved the original Turtles show. I still think they are classics. I even started buying the cartoon on DVD a few years ago, but I stopped once they got to season 3 (which had too many episodes to purchase them separately).

The Technodrome

In the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles universe, the Technodrome is a futuristic doom base/horror tank from another world built by a gigantic brain with arms and a tripod.

It was able to withstand any environment–from the vacuums of space to the depths of the ocean–and came equipped with a robot army, deflector shields, interdimensional teleportation and even a time machine.


It also made a totally badass toy.

I did however really appreciate the fact that they put the “Technodrome soundtrack” in there too.
Also, TMNT have a TMNTpedia website. I guess everything is making a pedia page. One thing that I read on the main page that I never knew was “…that the voice of The Shredder in the original cartoon series was that of James Avery, more commonly known for his role of “Uncle Phil” in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air?” Crazy…
