    I hope I will learn playing the organ in this way, go to future and bring it back to present!

    Calvin is probably going to end up at the next day, where the teacher is yelling at him for not completing his assignment.

    I don’t need to travel through time to know that this outcome is not possible.

    In the last panel, Hobbes looks like he’s trying really hard to think inside the box.

    The thing is that if time travel really was possible, this idea would actually work. The homework would be an ontological paradox. Nobody ever wrote it. He would just get it from the future and later give it to himself.

    I think this is called a closed loop – like trying to get power from an extension cord plugged into itself or trying to step in a bucket and pick it up from within.

    Obviously not everyone has seen this arc before. Just you wait, 3/4 of you will be very surprised.

    “Relax. We’ll be back as soon as we go.” This is how my older brother got me on my first roller coaster ride of terror. Earned him a kick in the kneecaps. Great fun!

    @Gigantor: So, if Calvin in the future gave the assignment to Calvin in the time machine from the past, it seems like Calvin in the future wouldn’t have the piece of paper to turn in at school the next day. Perhaps he would need to make a photocopy before handing the original to Calvin in the time machine.

    The most fun I ever had was flying from Europe to NYC on the day of the summer timechange, which happens on a different date on each side of the Atlantic. Sometimes it’s a week apart, sometimes two. Anyway…I got to NYC an hour before I left on the same day.

    That’s really not possible: Calvin hasn’t done that homework, has no intention of doing it – how could he possibly bring it back from the future if it never existed anyway? Maybe he hopes to bring back another student’s work? And pass it off as his?

    Hobbes actually looks irritated in this strip.


    And Calvin should write about going into the future to pick up his story. . . .

    If he would just write down what he is doing the story would write itself

    @Night-Gaunt9: And now it’s been 20 years since all of this began, and Calvin still hasn’t written the story.

    My time machine was our garage. Me and my space dog travelled to many different planets and killed all the bad life forms, usually dandelions on the lawn, with my space stick.

    There are reputable scientists who say that time travel will happen some day, that it’s just a matter of time (yuk, yuk).

    How can a boy with the imagination Calvin has be having such a difficult time writing a story for class??? His head should be SO full of ideas that the hard part would be . . . choosing which one he wants to write about! ;-)
