    Calvin wants to be carried on the back, my father and my brother did this with me, when I was a little child, it was funny and I loved it!

    Early man had a very short life span: Just long enough to parent the next generation but hardly long enough to pass their experiences onto the next generation.

    Good question, Hobbes. One of the great mysteries of life:
    how it has gone on in spite of all our efforts to the contrary.

    We had to survive long enough to finally give it a name:
    “Darwin Awards”.

    Face it: We human beings are natural prey animals. No fangs. No claws. No armor. No fur. No poison. Crappy camouflage. Slow runners. Poor swimmers. Can’t fly. And, to top it all off, soppily devoted to our offspring, who remain helpless and useless for years after birth. (Contrast that with colts or fawns struggling to their feet within minutes of being born.)

    The only thing that let us survive at all was those tools.

    To answer Hobbes question: despite your best efforts our brains kept getting larger. But it did take awhile. While yours remained the same. Now there are more tigers in captivity than in the wild. Now we have to work hard to keep you from becoming extinct. Poachers. They want your hide, bones, and organs. Some people will pay big bucks. They think they’re magic.

    Good question Hobbes. After hours of deep research into Calvin’s ancestry we find that Calvin comes from
    a long line of vegetarians.

    We’ve survived because we sticked to the first panel.

    It seems clear that Hobbes is more massive than Calvin, for one thing. ;)

    That don’t necessarily signify. Consider the
    dinosaur. Before the invention of gunpowder both man and cat had to get pretty close, without the other noticing, to stand any chance
    of having the other fo lunch. Now, the cat has
    to be VERY GOOD at Not Being Seen in order
    to avoid ending up either over or on the floor
    in front of some Great Hunter’s fireplace. ’Cos
    the high-powered rifle 999/1000ths of the time
    — if not more….

    Well, for one thing we didn’t usually attack tigers. They don’t grow on the African Savannah. For another if we’re not overfed couch potatoes we are actually extremely good runners. Add a frontal lobe to that and Viola! a creature that is capable of destroying the planet just to make sure they can get to McDonald’s faster than anyone else.

    Your father and your brother jumped on your back and tried to ride you when you were a little child?
    Goodness gracious!
