    It’s easier to believe in something that’s silly, rather than question it.

    Doesn’t wind come from wind farms?

    At this point Calvin’s mom would be saying from the side, “Dear.”

    That must mean Calvin’s dad doesn’t know what causes wind. Lol

    Dad could have also told Calvin “They Call The Wind Maria”.

    “It’s an ill wind that blows no good.”It’s an ill tree that sneezes no good.

    I’m surprised to see Dad actually admitting that what he said first wasn’t true. Usually he just keeps embellishing his story.

    Someone told me they thought that trees waving their branches caused the wind-

    Reminds me of a similar Peanuts strip: Box 1: Linus asks Lucy, “Why is the sky blue?” Box 2: Lucy relies acidly: “BECAUSE IT ISN’T GREEN!!” sending Linus and his blanket tumbling over backward. Box 3: Lucy stomps away in disgust. Box 4: Linus breaks the fourth wall saying—“That just shows how stupid I am. . . I thought there might be a more complicated reason. . .”

    I’m just glad wind is not caused by trees farting.

    Calvin should ask Lucy van Pelt; she always has an explanation, regardless of her ignorance.

    I don’t like Calvin’s dad, this is one of the reasons that he’s not doing good in school (plus being hyper, possible adhd, etc…) Calvin probably thinks that no adult will give him the straight answers, even the teachers, so why listen to them in the first place? (Thank God we had an encyclopedia set at my house, or I would have ended up like Calvin!)
