I was looking through some threads and I saw Jollygreengiant's sig which is a quote from Calvin and Hobbes.
It reminded me of how amazing Calvin and Hobbes is. I loved them when I was younger because of the silly down to earth humor, but I reread them earlier this year and realized that there is so much more to Calvin and Hobbes than I thought.
So Calvin and Hobbes FTW.
If you have not read any Calvin and Hobbes, go out and do so now, you will not regret it.
If you haven't read in a while, Calvin and Hobbes is always worth a reread.
good thread. plus karma, was thinking about how calvin and hobbes exist on an adult leval earlier today
-So I'm rappelling down Mount Vesuvius when suddenly I slip, and I start to fall. Just falling, ahh ahh, I'll never forget the terror. When suddenly I realize "Holy shit, Hansel, haven't you been smoking Peyote for six straight days, and couldn't some of this maybe be in your head?"
- And it was. I was totally fine. I've never even been to Mount Vesuvius.
Best books ever. I had like 6 of them and read each of them dozens of times. So much better than any shit cartoons on TV or anything. Those comics were actually epic

the real last one was one with them romping through the snow with a sled, then ends with them sledding off into the distance and i think hobbes says "its a magical world" then calvin says "lets go exploring buddy" or something like that
I have a story about Calvin and Hobbes.....basically, for a few years after taking earth science in 9th grade, I could not for the life of me remember what I DID in the class. I knew I didn't sleep and I knew I didn't do other class work or anything, but I also knew I NEVER payed attention at all...I seriously couldn't remember where that time went, I had no recollection of the class whatsoever. It was like this big void in my life. Then like 2 years later, I saw a Calvin and Hobbes book and it all came back to me - I spent the entire year of earth science reading Calvin and Hobbes.
"â€¦when a calendar comes to the end of a cycle, it just rolls over into the next cycle. In our Western society, every year 31 December is followed, not by the End of the World, but by 1 January. So 184.108.40.206.0 in the Mayan calendar will be followed by 0.0.0.0.1 - or good-ol' 22 December 2012, with only a few shopping days left to Christmas." - Excerpt from Dr Karl's "Great Moments in Science".
Calvin and hobbes is something that you can read throughout your entire life and still get new meaning from it. it is amusing so it appeals to children, but also has many different layers of political and religious topics.
I LOVE IT!!!!!
Ignorance is bliss and you're one happy mother fucker
My dad started reading them to me when I was three or so, I'm pretty sure he owns all of them. It's incredible how something I loved at that age can seem so exciting now. The Revenge of the Babysat was by far my favourite of the collections.
