Currently catching up on TV. In the Futurama episode "Benderama", there was a reference to the Banach-Tarski paradox (in the form of a duplicator machine) . The machine is used to duplicate things (ultimately Bender) at progressively smaller scales . All this in 23 minutes. Great stuff.
 the point was not to be technically accurate. The point was to make an analogical and highly obscure reference so that people like me could talk about it.
