You can feel that father-son bonding.

3. ##### Ariesrabout 2 years ago

Just a lucky guess.

4. ##### codycababout 2 years ago

And yet he keeps failing math.

Noventa y dos millones trescientos setenta y seis mil cincuenta y uno… imagine trying to say that in Spanish when it’s not your first language. Then again, Watterson learned German… what’s Calvin’s number therein without having to utilize Google Translate?

6. ##### RobertRomeroabout 2 years ago

Calvin knows numbers over 92 million, but can’t add 5 + 6? Something doesn’t add up.

So close to the truth!!!

Not gonna end well for Calvin as mom has less tolerance than dad.

11. ##### dave1960about 2 years ago

Ok, let’s try a different number, try and guess this one. 01000111 01100101 01110100 00100000 01101100 01101111 01110011 01110100 (Get lost), Google is your friend.

Wow, and I just happened to be thinking of that very number just now!

Calvin is the ping pong ball, Mom and Dad are the paddles.

Actually it was 92,376,053; but he decided to give the kid a break.

Sometimes, even a “yes” answer turns into an argument.

I have a “magic trick” where I can have you write down your number, (even Calvin’s) and with a few short questions, can accurately guess your number. Works every time, and was great when I taught 6th grade Math.

21. ##### Dino_Charger_24about 2 years ago

That was one GREAT strip!

Best answer to give a child ultimately includes sending off the child to the other parent…..

24. ##### kab2rbabout 2 years ago

Dad just go with it with Calvin Be a good sport.

Careful, dad. There may be a “Parental Poll” of household six-year-olds coming up… ☺

I was only off by one digit…

27. ##### mistercatworksabout 2 years ago

Dad was thinking of it, as soon as he heard it.

In the military in the 70s, I was actually given a psychic abilities test, I scored below random. You can imagine how much I do NOT gamble.

and on a somewhat related note, whenever the kids asked “Are we there yet??” …I’d always answer yes.

31. ##### HobbesTheTiger78about 2 years ago

Confess, Dad. Was he right or not?

32. ##### HobbesTheTiger78about 2 years ago

>:(

He didn’t expect his dad to get it. So what was his next line in the trick?

34. ##### vjorgensen54about 2 years ago

why would you want to ?

LOL!

36. ##### gawkfaceabout 2 years ago

will binary search solve this one in 27 tries when starting with that number? that’s like a minute of speed-guessing

Who cares?
