This cartoon is from 1961, so in comic strip terms they were immortal.

My high school basketball career in a nutshell. The bench was more important to the team than I was!
When I started reading this strip, Santis was a conservative and I was a liberal. Now, as things have shifted right and left around us, we’ve become centrists by not moving.

Reminds me of an unpleasant memory. I played a lot of squash in grad school, because it was easy to get a court. Since it was the 1970s, we didn’t use eye protection. A squash ball is just small enough so it can hit your eyeball without hitting any of the surrounding bone to lessen the impact. My left eye — my good eye, with much better vision — was out of commission during the semester with the largest number of endless readings. Luckily, it fully recovered after a few weeks.
The research basically shows that more money makes you happier, but only up to the point where your basic needs are met. In other words, if you can’t buy food or keep the bill collectors away, this will make you less happy. Beyond that, though, it doesn’t seem to help much.
