    Four and a half billion years ago, we spent a billion years being single celled organisms. Then we progressed to metazoans. To reproduce, we still go back to being single celled creatures. Calvin’s claim to fame is quite justified, as is his love of Bugs Bunny, but he’s just another metazoan.

    Most of my Moes are dead now, and the world is a better place without them, I gloat and have absolutely no guilt about it. I’m so happy that they are dead. That Calvin can look twenty years into the future and wonder how he will feel about Moe, is an amazing quality he has, far more useful than whether he can add and subtract.

    Higher being a relative term for a six year old.

    I remember turning the heat up because I was cold. Boy, did I ever get spanked that time. I was a very defiant kid. I got spanked a lot. Calvin never gets spanked. I like that. No harm will come to him from this, despite his fears. I wish my childhood had been like that.

    Back in the days when 6 year olds could run around outside, unescorted. I’m glad I grew up then. If his bicycle didn’t attack him, he could travel farther away, much faster.

    Quite right Hobbes. Most kids would total the car when they reach 16 and start driving. Calvin managed to do it at age 6.

    It’s difficult to wait until tomorrow and the next few days for what I already know will happen. Calvin and Hobbes is virtually the first thing I do every morning.

    " Dr Parkinson declared, I’m not surprised to see you here. You have smoker’s cough from smoking, brewers drip from drinking beer. I don’t know how you came to have the Betty Davis knees, but worst of all young man you have industrial disease" The next tv will be bigger with a better picture than the last for less than the cost of the last one. Look at the upside Calvin.

    Economic disparity leads to more crime. In the US you can be really rich, and you can be really poor. Mr Watterson apparently suffered a home breakin, and that’s partly why we’re reading this in Calvin and Hobbes. When I was in San Francisco many years ago, it was unsafe for anyone to walk the streets at night. Here in Canada it’s unsafe for women to walk the streets at night. In Tokyo anyone can walk the streets at any time. It’s a quality of life issue that doesn’t get discussed a whole lot. The US response is, “carry a gun”, get “a vicious dog”, but some cities, don’t have that problem, even within the US. My parents had several good locks on our door in Toronto. In Santa Barbara, they left the door unlocked. In any Caribbean country every window has burglar bars. Dogs aren’t pets there. They are for security only. Reality is just accepted, never questioned.

    Actually, on a snow day, the people who clear the snow get called at 4am, so Calvin is not completely out of line. His father might not undrestand though. It’s amazing how tolerant Calvin’s parents are. They are trully exceptional, absolutely exemplary. I’ve been reading this strip for a number of years, a devoted fan, but many I don’t remember, and I wonder if Watterson isn’t writing new Calvin and Hobbes adventures on this venue.
