    After hearing Calvin’s dad’s explanation, now I understand why ATMs always say, “Press Here.”(Sorry, Dogsniff…….. Hope I didn’t steal your line for today…….)

    This is a lot like a friend who said she couldn’t possibly be overdrawn because she still had cheques left.

    The other day upon the stair,I met a man who wasn’t there.He wasn’t there again today.Oh, how I wish that he would go away.-Toured the set of Star Trek Voyager and Deep Space Nine (friend worked in art dept), got to sit in Janeway’s captain chair, got to go up to the bar…the doors whish open by someone pulling a rope or chain from the other side, just like a commenter suspected.-High tech, huh?

    No he’s related to the guy in your refrigerator who turns the light on when you open it.

    It’s funny (Maybe not funny, but tragic. There’s a fine line sometimes. A tragi-comedy perhaps. IDK) how a simple cartoon can evoke politics out of some people. It’s a cartoon people! If you want politics, make your comments on the op-ed page of your local newspaper where only other political geeks will read it and respond. Maybe. Please leave Calvin and his dad out of the political arena and instead use them as a point where we can all be in agreement for once.

    Dad’s ATM scenario may be our future. The USPS lets us print our own postage. Maybe the US Govt will make us print our own money. Or script, or whatever. Think of the savings. No minting cost, no armored trucks, no bank vaults, etc. Or maybe it will be all “in the cards.”

    I remember being with my Dad at my uncles service station when a customer came in and paid for his gas with a credit card. I asked my dad why he didn’t get one of those, so he could get free gas. His explation was not quite as much fun, he explained the finacial facts of life to me.

    @caseyatbat: You wrote, “How can a kid (Calvin) so sharp be so dumb?”Calvin is patterned after Linus from Peanuts in this respect. When Linus was younger, sometimes he would be extremely naive, and other times he would be highly precocious, using big words and complex sentences.Interestingly, research into highly gifted children has found that many of them experience “uneven development,” meaning that they can be years ahead of their age in some areas but not in others.

    At my library you check out books electronically, and at the end it asks if you want a receipt if you say yes a receipt comes out. I used to think a mouse lived inside and printed out the receipt.
