    Why doesn’t Calvin just IMAGINE himself flying with the beanie, like he (supposedly) usually does?

    I think this is more evidence that Hobbes and all the other crazy stuff that happens to Calvin is real.

    I’m guessing Calvin failed to read the cereal’s order form’s fine print: “does not make you fly” (with “fly” in bold, red lettering).

    I see the problem. The didn’t send you the flying beanie, they sent you the THBBTPTHBB beanie.

    Is it glued to his head? If it lifted off without being properly attached, it would leave his head.

    It actually suits Calvin; a lot of village fools wear one.

    It’s obvious Calvin, you weigh to much. Why do you think it was on the Chocolate Sugar Bombs box to begin with. Eat, Eat, Eat.

    Which way is the propeller spinning? In one direction the hat will fly off, the other it’ll push down!

    I just bought one of those summer hats with a flap that keeps the sun off your neck. I put it on to show one of my students, who said, “Well, it looks kind of strange—but not in a bad way!”

    Looks like Jughead’s beanie…with a propeller, of course.

    We had an expression for this in the Air Force: “Too much weight and not enough coal.” Got to work on that thrust-to-eight ratio.

    On the other hand Calvin has a future as a helicopter pilot; AKA: “rotor head.”

    The thing takes, what – two “AA” batteries, and you’re expecting escape velocity? Think, kid! (And don’t go blaming your Dad’s repair job, either…)

    “The big print giveth, the small print taketh away”. Calvin, like about 500 million people using social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Amazon, Pinterest, Google Anything, Alibaba, ad nausem) around the world, checked off the little box on the screen but did not read nor comprehend the rights they signed over to the companies. This End User Agreement aka “contract” is legally binding. Which means that Facebook did NOT break any laws when they sold data to Cambridge Analytica., any more than the others all making profit from selling your data to advertisers. It’s buried down about twenty-seven pages in the legalese text, but since no one has the time nor makes the effort to read anymore, they missed it and now cry foul – after the fact. Cretins. It’s still legally binding though.

    given she shape of the hat it looks like the propeller can’t even provide a cooling breeze. Besides, despite what you may have seen on Inspector Gadget a single rotor will NEVER make you fly even IF it was big enough to provide lift. Because of torque your body will spin in the opposite direction the rotor is going, in order to fly and be steerable you would need either a second rotor spinning in the opposite direction to counter the torque or a tail propeller producing thrust in the opposite direction of the spin. That’s how helicopters and drones work.

    I still don’t get how his Dad got it in the hat. Not from the top. The battery pack wouldn’t fit in the hole.. Not from the bottom – the propeller wouldn’t fit in the hole.

    Dad probably turned down the power when he fixed it, so he couldn’t take off. :)

    I once sent in my ($big for the era and my age) to that place in the back of the comic book to get a “communicator” that used “no wires, no batteries, some assembly required”. Eventually, arrived an envelope with a length of very cheap string and instructions to punch holes in the bottom of two tin cans, put each end of the string through one of the holes from the bottom, tie the end into a big knot, then stretch the string by pulling on the cans. Speaking into one can caused your very distorted voice to sound in the other. Speaking loudly into the air worked better…

    I was much annoyed and suggested to my parents that they should sue. But when I showed them the ad, they were able to convince me that I had indeed gotten what I paid for. It was a very good lesson in critical thinking.

    I see the technical part. With one sided blade he should to spinning in the other direction. Better to put 2 blades which will give more lift.
