Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for February 04, 1990
Calvin: Let's hurry down this hill and go home. Hobbes: What's the rush? Calvin: There's a TV show on sledding I want to watch. In my opinion television validates existence. Take this sled ride, for instance. The experience is fleeting and elusive. By tomorrow, we'll have forgotten it, and it may as well have not even happened. But if we were on TV now, countless viewers would share in the event and confirm it! This ride would become a part of mass consciousness! And, on TV, the impact of an event is determined by the image, not its substance.
