Calvin:  I try to make television-watching a complete forfeiture of experience.  Notice how I keep my jaw slack, so my mouth hangs open.  I try not to swallow either, so I drool, and I keep my eyes half-focused, so I don't use any muscles at all.  I take a passive entertainment and extend the passivity to my entire being.  I wallow in my lack of participation and response.  I'm utterly inert.  Hobbes:  I'm going to leave before you start attracting flies.  Calvin:  I can almost feel my neural transmitters shutting down.
