    Too bad that most of the males seem to revel in pointless loud stupidity like “boom-cars.” Every spring and summer I get my eardrums assaulted by insanely loud bass coming out of cars. It never seems to occur to these males that only other males like that absurdly loud noise.

    Ah, but the venue where being male is at its best is at those obnoxiously loud “music” festivals, specifically when utilizing their port-a-pots. These days, port-a-pots are quite possibly the only remaining place where it’s still great to be male.

    @Bilan—-A few tomorrows later he will be asking where his hearing aid is. My age 50 stepson has found out what cranked up music does to your hearing—play now (loud), pay later (hearing loss).

    Give a man a hammer, and everything starts to look like a nail.

    I like loud booms….loud is exciting….the thrill of fireworks and loud sirens from fire engines and police cars. Love parades and things that go BOOM! Loud music from a car is annoying only because it’s not my music. I’m in my sixties, but when I get to hear a loud “controlled” explosion it brings a smile to my face and I feel like a child!!

    It’s great to be male, when you are female men adore you, that has silver lining, too!

    I was trying to see if I could get everything Calvin was saying in the second panel to go with the rhythm and tune of “If I Had a Hammer” by Peter, Paul, and Mary. LOL. The first three lines worked, but not I couldn’t get the last one to quite go along.

    The last panel shows a side view of Calvin’s mouth. He looks like a Muppet.

    @ddewrell: Hobbes is keeping his distance today. It isn’t wise to pounce on a guy who is holding a hammer.

    Six more retirement checks and my odometer will turn “80”. That said, my mailbox is plagued with hearing aid ads 4 days a week (or more).. I can still hear a mouse pee in my sock drawer even after years of flailing a Fender Strat nights to make ends meet. Even with 8 years of ‘Military Stuff’, I protected my hearing with cigarette filters or SOMETHING,so I didn’t have to wind up like my WWII friends, cousins and neighbors going ‘deef’..

    It’s great to be male. I’m writing a fictitious book called, “101 Reasons I’m Glad I’m Not a Girl.” Number one on the list is being able to pee standing up – the world is your urinal. Number 101 is not having to find a bag to match my shoes.

    In between are 99 serious and not-so-serious reasons. Whenever I hear someone mention a “woman’s issue” be it sociological, psychological or physiological – serious or frivolous, I’ll blurt out “Reason number 76” or some other number. Those in the know about the book (mostly my wife and my sister) get the message that I do sympathize with them.

    I am glad that about half the people on the planet are women. They make life interesting however, I’m glad I’m not one of them. It’s a lot easier being a guy.

    Actually, I think I’m pushing nearly 1,000 reasons by now.

    Jeff0811, Exactly! I will never ever understand why some people think that everyone with a 2-3 block radius wants to listen to their “music”.

    Another thing you can do with a hammer is fall and hit yourself in the head. Be careful, Calvin.

    If I had a Hammer, and I had a Sickle… old USSR version.-Booming, Subwoofer music: At intersections I can feel the pavement vibrate as the offenders wait out the red light. Oh well, it’s just a different kind of fire hydrant for marking territory.

    Now everything looks like a nail to Calvin. If he gets a wrench, everything will look nuts!

    This remind me to the first scene of Stanley Kubrick’s “2001 A Space Odyssey” but also at another first scene of Mel Brook’s “History of The World,part1”
