    You better hope it’s hotter there, Calvin. But don’t forget the butter so it won’t stick.

    Perhaps because, at one Point, we were/are a six year old?

    As a fellow despiser of idiomatry, I’d have tried the same experiment as Calvin.

    I read quite a number of strips on this site, but I always save this one for last of all. It never fails to get at least a chuckle, and a great deal of the time a true belly laugh. I am then armed against the death, doom, and despair of life,

    Thank you Bill Watterson, you were the best when this strip was new, and you STILL are the best!!

    I’ve had egg beaters. They’re somewhat lacking in flavor.

    I see a mess of trouble in your future, Calvin. But if you’re going to do it, do it right (as others have suggested) and do it with bacon.

    Another old saying proven wrong. Surely there’s someplace that’s hot enough to fry an egg on.

    I lived and worked in Death Valley for a number of years. Tourist would try this during the 125 degree summers. It never worked and left a big mess.

    I visited Dead Sea in July, 53° C, but I didn’t try frying eggs!

    @demtrug – Curiosity and experimentation are what define us as human beings. I’d be worried about anybody who didn’t want to fry an egg on a hot surface on a hot day.

    Body temp, 98.6F = 37.I have a ballpark idea of themetric system, But even after 17= years I still think‘how much is that in REAL measurements?’ Oldhabits die hard! Wonder if immigrants to US & UKfeel the same….

    I think Bill Watterson is the best too. I can’t remember the year but was so sad when he retired. One reason I love this site is because I can still visit Calvin and Hobbes and Cathy.

    I grew up in Iowa. About every summer some TV news team on a local channel would fry an egg on the sidewalk. In full sun, in the late afternoon, yes you can if the surface is right.

    But just think: this particular six-year-old could grow up to be part of Mythbusters: The Next Generation.

    Oh boy. I hope they clean the mess up, if the result is the same as the one on the sidewalk.

    One of my teachers actually explained why you could’t really fry an egg on the sidewalk. We were all very disappointed.

    One of the great things about reading: you can learn a lot from others’ mistakes. and it’s not nearlyso painful as learning from one’s own!
