They did say in his OWN words.
Newton’s Laws in first grade?!?! WTF???
“the movement of an object is linear and constant if the sum of forces applied to it equals zero” if my memory is correct
Thank God for the Calvin and Hobbes search engine!! I love it!
Fun fact: There was a little-known one-shot comic book, published in 2008, entitled “Chumble Spuzz” after the last part of Calvin’s quote here.
I just found this strip from “C&H” recently, and it made me laugh out loud—especially the last two words of Calvin’s response to the question. Fun stuff.
I once had a test which asked "do you know who XXXX (I forget who) is? I answered YES I DO. Nowadays not only would I insist on getting the full marks bit I would also insist on every one who did not put Yes/No getting no marks as Yes?No are the only right answer to what was asked.Years before I had an exam which asked write everything you know about XXXX (I forget what) so I answered " I know nothing about XXXX" they had to give me 100% – they tried to give me less but could not prove at the time I sat the exam I knew anything (see being a idiot can help) .
There are no loop holes just rules to be obeyed.
