    Well, clearly he’s hammering nails in the table. A better question would be why he is doing it.

    i remember calvin say in a later strip “we laugh at stupidity” or something and here were not laughing at the stupid question, were laughing at the obviousness of the answer.

    This was me as soon as I learned to use a hammer. My poor parents gave me a block of wood to bang on, but that didn’t even dent the problem.
