    Please, please, point to any one place or time in history where anything remotely resembling a voluntarily funded government has existed and had more than a few hundred inhabitants.

    This being PBS, there’s a better than even chance the bucket will kick Rat.

    Although this strip is from 1991, all Calvin strips exist in a weird timeless era that is sort of a mashup of the 50’s-60’s, maybe the 70’s. The 70’s being probably the twilight of the last great era of unsupervised outdoor kids. Thus Calvin has a TV, but not a VCR and can send away for cereal prizes that were mostly a memory by the 70’s.

    I like Suzie’s style. Every time I see this one, I’m reminded of junior high science. I was pretty sure a couple of idiots were cheating off my tests (this sort of thing happens when you have a reputation for being the smartest guy in the room. Not that I necessarily was, but the other contenders were much better at keeping a low profile.)So on the next test, I picked one of the earlier questions and gave it the most absurd, batshit insane answer I could think of. I have no idea if they copied it, but I did notice we got assigned seating within the week and the presumed cheaters were on the far end of the room.

    The line is fine. Consistently rated as one of the best lines overall and in the top 5 or so for pass protection by the experts. Mayfield gets sacked a lot, not because of bad blocking (usually) but because he hangs on to the ball too long. That, plus his injury history this year is why some are questioning whether he’s Cleveland’s solution in the long term. I think with a healthier team around him, he’s good for another year or two at least which gives the Browns a chance wait on a truly elite QB instead of diving in on another mediocre QB.

    The Browns are currently a respectfully mediocre team. The problem is, largely due to playing the NFC East last year (every team a joke), that’s not what people expected. Comparisons to the Lions, Jets or Texans are honestly laughable and only possible because people can remember how bad the Browns were before the last few years. The biggest problem for the Browns besides expectations has been injuries, and they’ve been hit HARD this year. It happens. Mayfield may or may not be the long term solution in Cleveland, his injuries this year definitely raise questions about his long term viability.

    Ouch, that one hit the mark.

    My dad would not document how many bags of leaves he raked, but that’s mostly because we never bagged leaves. He did leave behind notebooks full of meticulously detailed accounts of trips complete with gas mileage, details of his various wood carvings, all sorts of stuff and that’s not even counting his financial records. Anybody getting a look at those would have known he was an accountant in about three seconds.

    He was of course never officially diagnosed, but if he wasn’t “on the spectrum” I’d be completely shocked.

    I’ll see you and raise you one, coming home obviously injured just lead to a LONGER lecture and minor punishment. Still all my fault for reacting. Even when the school got involved because of an incident on the bus, she managed to get them to punish me because it was clearly my fault for objecting to having my stuff stolen. The perpetrator, who hit me hard enough in the eye that I developed double vision? Absolutely nothing happened to him except presumably a note in his file. It’s fine to punish your own kids, but asking for others to be punished is conflict and all conflict is bad. Damn pacifists.

    When I was in MN, there was one guy at our college everybody thought was insane. -20F and he was still wearing shorts. Even the guys from the North Shore thought he was nuts. Did see him wear long pants once, was surprised to discover he owned any. He did skip the sandals though, wore shoes most of the year.
