Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for September 15, 2014
Calvin: "Help me with this homework, ok? What's 6+3?" Hobbes: "6+3, eh? Well, this one is a bit tricky" Hobbes: "First we call the answer "Y", and in "Y do we care?" Now Y may be a square number, so we'll draw a square and make this side 6 and that side 3. Then we'll measure the diagonal" Calvin: "I don't remember the teacher explaining it like this" Hobbes: "She probably doesn't know higher math. When you deal with high numbers, you need higher math" Calvin: "But this diagonal is just a little under two" Hobbes: "Ok, here, I'll draw a bigger square"
