    Calvin attempts to correlate song with joy. Note the downward arc of the result, as if he were actually plotting hypothetical joy against time. Psychological impact will be evident when joy=zero (soon).
    Wait – no – surely @Hobbs will have a better explanation for this :)

    For my kids, it was the ‘greasy, grimy, gopher guts’ song that would get them sent outside…

    @spirit1942: Note that while Calvin’s pleasure is decreasing, his parents’ pleasure is increasing. It’s the fundamental principle of Conservation of Ecstasy.

    Conservation of Ecstasy?? Grasshopper has so much to learn from @Hobbes. Must clear mind of old beliefs
