The point of living is to put off death as long as possible.
To the GoComics readers in the US: HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
Who would be a better person with whom to have this conversation? A priest, A rabbi, an imam, a lama, a guru… the list goes on.
Don’t forget delicious meat like turkey, Hobbes. Happy Thanksgiving!
Calvin can be so philosophical yet so crazy and destructive
The point of living involves girls, but at his age, that sounds like a bad thing.
Yeah, Crab leg’s. unfortunately not at $24,95 a pound.
Seafood? I thought pizza was the point of living.
It ain’t the destination, it’s the JOURNEY! (otherwise, there certainly IS no point.
Seafood is part of seefood
You’ll understand when the hormones kick in and the girls all look great
Seafood, yes. Got to agree with Hobbes on this one…
“One life is only important in how it affects other lives”—Jackie Robinson
It’s a test, Calvin. No looking over at others answers.
Obviously, the point of living is to read comics on GoComics. Duh.
So Calvin opens his mouth full of chewed turkey and stuffing at the Thanksgiving dinner table and says, “See? Food”. And a Very Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving to All!
And the Brits have determined that lobsters and such are sentient and will “Will Now Receive Welfare Protection”. Steamers too???
We’re all just some higher being’s video game.
Because you have no one else to talk to, Calvin?
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. Load down and then join over-eaters anonymous. Personally, I’m not sure what’s so great about turkey. I’d prefer to grill brats on a summer evening.
Game theory, Cavin.
A closed ended game is mostly defined by rules, boundaries and time limits and you keep score. The objective is to run up the score and run out the clock. He who dies with the most toys wins (or goes to heaven).
Life is an open ended game to be played for the sake of playing it and the objective is to keep playing it as long as you can. The only rule is not to hurt others and have fun.
I will do as I did when I was a child. I will keep playing until the street lights come on and it’s time to go home.
Happy Thanksgiving y’all.
Eww! Hobbes, close your mouth when you eat. No one needs to sea that!
Hobbes seems well aligned with Thomas Hobbes here — Calvin however seems not to have yet settled on Calvinism.
If the game is going to end in defeat for one team, why do we play baseball?
Happiness is the goal Calvin. Discovering happiness is the pursuit.
To get to the other side.
The undertaker says …..the fish died first- for YOU
Simple answer. Living is all about avoiding death without getting bored.
“So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish…”
I’m on the seafood diet. I see food,I eat.
Calvin has a really good point. The problem is assuming there has to be a reason. (I wonder why Anything exists at all — boggles my mind)
Food? Yes, but there are three things that make life worth living: Women, Pizza and Beer.
We will be rolling sushi for Thanksgiving. Happy Happy Joy Joy all!
Some people wish they’d never been born….and not the type in It’s a Wonderful Life….and they’re not depressed or insane…..they just have a different take….
every 6 year old has this thought, I remember I did. When you get to be my age you realize the temporariness of life is the thing that gives it so much value.
I like the time Hobbes said our purpose was to be tiger food better.
No, Hobbes is right! I love lobster!
Something to ponder Calvin. This question is what brought about the creation of Gods and religion by ancient man.

Many lives have been wasted, misled and generally unlived looking for “the point”. Life is what you make it. Make it good.
Life has exactly one point, and that’s the one you give yours.
To sum it up Calvin, “You never know where you’re going, ’til you get there.”
If God does not exist, then life has no ultimate meaning, value, or purpose.
If God does exist, then it does.Jesus is whom he claimed to be.
Q1: What is the chief end of man?A1: Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy Him for ever.WSC
Know what kid? You make all of us grown-ups start pondering on this philosophical note. Hobbes’ seafood does make sense, technically.
“All life we work but work is a bore
If life’s for livin’, then what’s livin’ for?"
See, that’s one thing we have to be thankful for, on this day. Also, who has seafood for Thanksgiving? :)
“There never is any point in talking with you BEFORE dinner.”
Yes, dinner is a good conversation killer.
Read the last chapter of Twains’ “The Mysterious Stranger.” Ultimately, there is no point in life. Humans just want to believe that there IS a point, mainly because humans are so narcissistic.
