We had to change our life, this is not always easy and not everybody wants this!
A totally nihilistic view could put a bad day into perspective, I guess.
sun will not explode! it will turn into a red giant!!!! :P
The picture is not that big Calvin .
ask any remaining from “the lost platoon” LZ- X-Ray 1965 about a ‘bad day’
Just tell Mom & Dad you got sent to the principal’s office already.
Big or not, no doubt a dark picture.
It makes me laugh when I watch one of those disaster shows on History or Science channel about the end of our world, when the sun dies out.
All the scary music, as if it were going to end pretty soon. It does make you feel as if it was going to happen any day now, so be prepared. Stock up on extra batteries, and candles, and bottled water.
[Multiplication is just repetitive addition.] I understand that, what I still DON’T understand is how to do it, or anything anegative number of times….
Thanks, Calvin.I think I’ll go back to bed.
The way Calvin sees it, we are all in for billions of years of pointlessness.
“Anyone informed that the universe is expanding and contracting in pulsations of eighty billion years has a right to ask, ’What’s in it for me?’ "- Peter De Vries, U.S. author

Sure does, Calvin. :( Siiiggghhh….
if that is true calvin, why do people have retirement accounts?
Calvin a philosopher? A bit nihilistic but at least he’s thinking, which is more than most people achieve.
In view of this,I doubt that 80 million years from now, one’s bad toothache will be of importance.
but Santa delivers
Hobbes – again great relevant comics. I leave the big picture thinking to the Calvin’s of the world. One day at a time is all I can handle.
If we make the planet unlivable for us, the planet will support the evolving survivors. We have to do something to kill a few million years time until it happens.
I had a stroke, can’t talk, my wife died from cancer . I just have to look at the “Big Picture” now . Oh well—-
You’re worried about stuff that isn’t likely to happen to you in particular for another eighty years or so, Calvin? Why can’t you make the most of now?
And the universe is not going to collapse, as was believed at the time this was drawn. It will expand faster and faster until all the atoms in the universe are ripped apart. So cheer up.
Calvin has been the ‘man of the hour’ for ages now with his long speeches.
Let Hobbes be in the centre of the limelight for a change.
The next thought that follows is: Party today for tomorrow you die. Calvin does not know about the joy of having grandchildren.
When you look into an abyss, the abyss also looks into you.-Friedrich Nietzsche He would be proud of you, Calvin. LOL
yes He did but it was not on earth
Exactly,Calvin.That’s why we take joy in the simple pleasures while we can.
I feel better already
Amen to that
Did you go to SC?…… Cuz you’re using the name of their mascot from the 1950’s….. Just wondering…….
Compared to what’s happening in DC….this could be a good thing. Calvin is always thinking ahead.
@TrulyEpic0914: I use HTML to put comics in the chat box. Here is an example, showing how I posted the Garfield strip today:< br>< a href=“http://assets.amuniversal.com/019098805f75012ee3c100163e41dd5b”>Click here: Garfield (January 16, 2003)< /a>< br>< img src=“http://assets.amuniversal.com/019098805f75012ee3c100163e41dd5b?width=350” alt=“Garfield (January 16, 2003)”/>< br>< br>You have to omit the space after each <The part in quotes is the GoComics image address. To find it, right-click on the strip after it is opened in GoComics.HTML is difficult to use, because a wrong character, missing character, extra space, etc. can cause you not to get the correct results.
Calvin as an existentialist? Kierkegaard would be proud!
Problem is so many people confuse the TV as the Big Picture. But “God” bless you Calvin lol
Bummer. But if you’re an atheist, then to be consistent, that’s what you’ve got. Life is meaningless.
The pessimist looks at life and sees inevitable death. The optimist looks at life, and sees a priceless gift each moment in which to act.
