Next time, check the settings.
Reminds me of when my brother, about Calvin’s age, decided toast would be much better if he buttered it before he put it in the toaster. Um, no.
Toaster Settings:1. Bread2. Stale Bread3. Raw Toast4. Carbon5. On Fire
Or operate people, I pray, I may not need it!
The boy has a point there.
Airplanes are a lot better serviced than toasters. They have to be. Toasters don’t kill hundreds at a time when they burn your toast.
I’ve never flown, never will.
hmmm… Calvin sees right through the technological smokescreen.
I have to get on an airplane this morning. If my toast is burnt for breakfast, I’ll consider it a warning.
Only because there aren’t any zeppelins.
The Shepard referred to is Alan Shepard, Mercury/Apollo 14 astronaut. The comment is about his 1961 capsule and rocket.
According to Gene Kranz in his book, Failure Is Not an Option, “When reporters asked Shepard what he thought about as he sat atop the Redstone rocket, waiting for liftoff, he had replied, ‘The fact that every part of this ship was built by the low bidder.’”
How are you at boiling water, Calvin?
Calvin’s comment is the very reason I have a prescription for clonazepam.
On my toaster it’s a very fine difference in the setting between white and black. There’s only one spot on the entire dial that actually results in brown.
Totally agree with Calvin’s frustration with the toaster, especially since we’re on our third toaster in a week, trying to find ONE that toasts properly.
especially now that they’re computerized.
I have a toaster in my camper, its a wire frame the bread sits on over a metal disk that sits over the burner flame. It works great.
With his thinking, and some of his comments on life, fun, and view o work, he might become a lawyer
A toaster is a box, ejector assembly, heating element, temperature sensor, and maybe a timer. It sells for $7 – $20. A toaster with aircraft level sensors and redundancy would sell for $300, $25000 if built to NASA or MIL Spec.
It looks like white bread. Calvin has been saved from eating it.
Did Calvin ruin the toaster? When Mom finds out, Calvin will be toast!
Calvin’s statement ’doesn’t fly’!
Oooooh… I think Calvin is going to be TOAST when Mum sees what he has done.
Actually, when you consider the percentages, airplanes remain the safest way to travel. The media trumpets air crashes, but what if they spent hours everyday reporting all the “uneventful” flights. That would last for hours.
Your comment reminded me of this strip
I remember getting on a plane,finding out which country this new plane was built in ,and promising my self to do a little reading when and if I got home.Because building anything was not what they were famous for.
A toast to us!
Check the settings before you burn the toast!
Airplane = 10,000 complex parts all assembled by the lowest bidder
What’s the deal it’s just burnt toast
On the other hand,
“A good landing is one you can walk away from.
“A GREAT landing is one where they can reuse the plane.”
Apparently Calvin has finally learned where the bread goes when toast pops up.
I also notice the two comments are over a year apart.
A ‘’ toast ’’ to all ye merry commenters. Melba anyone?
Just deightful Bill, sure do miss you.
