Calvin should be happy that he is even ALIVE in the future. lol
And all this was written before iDevices.
We all know Calvin is never going to listen to Hobbes here. Hobbes is making sense…
I agree with Hobbes #1.
If one uses a time machine to go WAY back into the past and kills some one who may have been his ancestor, then he will cease to exist, which means he would not exist to go back into the past to kill that distant ancestor, which means he will exist, which means…oh fuggetaboutut.
Calvin COULD go to the year 2099, write the paper there, and travel back in time. I guess.
Better do the homework, it’s better to know the things afterwards as to stay an ignorant!!
its true Calvin do homework itsn’t Hobbes ha haa
He should go far enough into the future to see if he graduates.
I think he should go into the future atleast until the next day to see what happens in the class.
Dr. Nichols (first name unknown). Yep, I cheated, I went to my iTunes version of ST-IV: The Voyage Home.
Sherlock Holmes here….just came through the time mists along the Thames river….ah, I see even your children use time travel in the future, elementary of course. But…how DO your little imps get those cardboard boxes to fly???
I suppose they flap the flaps to “get those cardboard boxes to fly”!
When “people try to do everything at once”, they are multi-tasking, ostensibly!
I’m going to see the “next week me” to see if he knows what’s happening.

I’d have to disagree with Hobbes #2 (“All this modern technology just makes people try to do everything at once.”) On the contrary, Calvin’s using his technology to avoid doing work.
I love this arc! It’s got to be my favorite!
Where are mum and dad while all this commotion is going on? I’m sure it can’t be quiet, and if it is quiet that’s even a better reason to go and see what’s going on.
LOL LOL. Cool strip.
Two Calvins -Double trouble!
Two Hobbes- Double cuteness!
Some people are ahead of their time… yet still manage to get behind.
Calvin is beside himself, in more ways than one.
Dr Nichols first name is Walter, if you are willing to accept that fact from the Eugenics Wars novels, where the character is featured as an research scientist for Area 51 in later years of his life.
…and…I might know a little about time travel myself……
Who said they are the same glasses?
I wouldn’t do that, Susan. As bad as Hitler was, his actions were a key influence on history and the development of your civilization. You humans, evolving during a crisis. Amazing!
When was this strip written?! Talk about predicting the future.
Good point Hobbes…er..on the right.
“The faster I run, the behinder I get” — Pogo?
In other news, I love today’s banner!
@dahawk: ’ I theorize a time machine cannot travel back past the time of its invention.’No wonder my screen went BSOD as I entered 1986.Well, back to the laboratory. Thanx for the thought.There’s GOT to be a WorkAround here SOMEwhere.
These two cats are cool.
Calvin had not to do the homework, he can hide in the tiniest part of time and nobody can catch him, but, it would be better to do it, for knowing the things later!!
You cant go back and change things because you do not exist yet.
Watterson was trippin’ on this story
Now the two tigers are gonna hafta split that can of tuna….
The idea of infinite quantum universes is a question for theologists, not scientists. Having a universe created for each and every possible outcome of each and every decision that gets made in a days time would result in billions upon billions of new quantum realities created every nanosecond.
There would be a universe for each and every pair of socks you considered wearing today, and then one for each of your pants, one for each of your shirts, etc… for every decision making being on the planet.
“Science” and the “Natural World” do not monitor the decision making process of a sentient mind. If you believe in a god or gods, that entity may take an interest in your socks and would like to have two of you wearing both pairs, but that’s probably not likely.
Sounds silly when you think about socks. Now scarves……
