    Calvin stashs ‘get-away’ money.

    I remember “games” like that, but I never had arguments or fights with my imaginary playmates.Calvin’s imagination is a real crackup.I notice that Hobbes is in the washing machine.

    I fear the game of monopoly will have a similar outcome.

    “‘interest-free bank loans’ to yourself”…. is Calvin a Wharton alumnus?

    It’s not about winning, it’s about winning the argument about the rules.

    Sounds like our congress, changing the rules in the middle of the game.

    Charlie Brown changed the rules once, but he was less forceful about it than Calvin. This is from the first year of Peanuts:Click here: Peanuts (1951)

    Hi Phapada. Calvin and Hobbes are calling each other names, and they are making some of them up, like “strudel brain” and “oatmeal face” in the next frame. “Muffin head” means the same thing as “strudel brain” or “chowder head” or “stupid head.”

    It was fine in the early AM hours, but has slowed down considerably. I wish I had the answer.

    Slower than mollasses [sp] in january. Maybe all the ads on this site slow it down. I noticed a video comes up and plays whether you want it to or not.

    I’d answer your question but it takes too long to load. Actually today is as bad as it has ever been. In days past when others were complaining about the loading speed being slow, it didn’t seem that bad to me. But not today. It’s very slow.

    Hi DogsniffI’m getting much slower responses these last few days than I was getting at the last survey that Hobbes did. I know that I’m nowheres near proficient enough to find/suggest a solution, maybe you’re correct, some-one out there may have the ideas

    It has been so slow as to make it I’mpossible for me to reach this site until now after my slow morning crawl through my comic queue.

    I know from nothing about these things, but one of my friends who works in the field tells me heavy traffic (as in on line shopping) can slow down the whole network even if the site you’re visiting isn’t directly involved.

    Yesterday was very bad. Using XP and IE8 on my desktop. Tried Laptop with 7 and IE9, no better. Today is a bit better, but sill slower than I’m used to. I’ve noticed that if I switch to a different window while a page is loading, it will abort the load.

    Abysmally s…l…o…w….. yesterday. I gave up more than a few times; today? no problems. I don’t get it either. Wish I could fix it, but don’t have the skill set. Every time I try to add a new toy or program it takes me a while to teach it to play nice with the old ones.

    @Dogsniff: I don’t have “pull” with GoComics, but I’ve received two responses from them on the speed problem. The last thing that they told me was that they were trying to replicate the problem using multiple servers and computers.Today I put together 55 comments on the problem from Calvin and Hobbes readers from today and this past Tuesday and Wednesday, and sent them to GoComics in a single attachment. I also asked them whether they have been able to replicate the problem.
