    Hey, two (2) Xs!

    I like that plan, Calvin!

    Hi Marg

    Today you were in the right place at the right time.

    It’s all downhill from here.

    Today’s strip was Bill Watterson’s final one before he went on the first of his two sabbaticals. He was away for nine months, from May 1991 to February 1992. During that time, the syndicate published reruns of Calvin and Hobbes.

    Here on GoComics, we are now reading 20-year-old reruns of Calvin and Hobbes, so it’s a bit like living in a time warp. I wonder what reruns GoComics will publish beginning tomorrow. If they rerun the strips that were rerun during Bill Watterson’s sabbatical, then we will be reading the reruns that they run of the reruns that were run. That would be like living in a time warp within a time warp.

    Fortunately, GoComics won’t turn off the strip for nine months. If they were to do that, we would all have to just hang around in front of our computers and read Calvin and Hobbes comic books while we wait.

    Also, Hobbes, talking in circles again? I love circles

    I know many who subscribe to this philosophy.

    I should send this to a counselor I know as a classic illustration of what Carl Jung would call “Thinking in the service of Feeling”.

    So, today I posted the first “x,” Dogsniff posted the second “x,” and then Marg posted her comment a couple of minutes later. But GoComics bumped our “x” comments into second and third place, making Marg the first poster. Hence, her comment about the two X’s, since she saw them before she posted. Then I wrote over my “x” comment, and then Dogsniff wrote over his. (I feel like I’m writing the final chapter of a mystery novel.) This has been extremely exciting, and I’m glad I somehow found the time for this edifying activity, but I think tomorrow at this time I’ll watch infomercials on TV instead.

    (For those of you who are now entirely baffled, you didn’t read yesterday’s comments.)

    So, this is what random means. Got it.

    Solomon stated that a lot in life is controlled by nothing more than time and unforeseen occurrence, which quells the idea of “everything happens for a reason” (without getting into the physics of it). Some things just happen because they do.

    Hi Hobbes, the Poster, today your comment on time warps and re-runs sounds suspicously like Calvin’s philosophy??? LOL It’s great to see Marg back at the top of the comments again.

    The GoComics servers are not synchronized. They’ve been that way for a while now. Therefore the time stamps are about 5 or more minutes off. Therefore Marg’s comment made it to the top, where she should be.

    Reading comic books to kill time works for me. Calvin will be in heaven when he can finally see them on the internet though.

    Good Morning, Marg, Mike & ♠Lonewolf♠

    I think the better quote is “Success is where preparedness and opportunity meet”, but I’m with Hobbes about living with Calvin being a continuous epiphany. Grog, I read GoComics because Harvard did a study about how much what a person reads first thing in the morning affects his lifespan. It was concluded that people who read the comics first, live longer. I’m hoping they got it right.

    Freud said ” Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar”.

    Seneca (Roman Philosopher) said that “Luck is what happens when Opportunity meets Preparation”. Being in the right place won’t help if your not prepared when opportunity knocks.
