While driving across a Bridge, Calvin notices the weight limit sign:

Calvin: Dad, how do they determine the weight limit for bridges?

Dad: Well, they keep driving larger and larger trucks over the bridge and when the bridge falls down, they weigh the last truck. And then they rebuild the same way afterwards.

Calvin: I thought it was something like that.

Mom: IF YOU DON'T KNOW, DON'T ANSWER HIM!!!!

My absolute favorite Calvin and Hobbes quote:

Calvin: "Do you believe in the devil? You know, a supreme evil being dedicated to the temptation, corruption, and destruction of man?"

Hobbes:
"I'm not sure that man needs the help."

Independence Referendum - 18 September 2014 - 84.7% turnout
Quite the finest cartoon strip of them all - still makes me laugh out loud - including the superb hammer, nails and coffe table strip - but Watterson also had some serious observations on life - this is a favourite ...

[Calvin is sunk deep in an armchair directly in front of the TV - declaiming ...]

"Graphic violence in the media.

Does it glamorise violence? Sure.
Does it desensitise us to violence? Of course.
Does it help us tolerate violence? You bet.
Does it stunt our empathy for our fellow beings? Heck yes."

Does it cause violence?
... Well, that's hard to prove."

The trick is to ask the right question".

A little rudeness and disrespect can elevate a meaningless interaction to a battle of wills and add drama to an otherwise dull day.

My favorite strip (displayed on my PC-Screen at work) is:

(Calvin sitting on his desk - bored.)

Calvin: What on earth am i doing in here on this beautiful day?! This is the only life i´ve got!!

(Calvin running away.)

Teacher (carrying Calvin back to his desk): Next time, try a drink of water and a few deep breaths.


That´s exactly what i feel sometimes at work...

Watterson had a handle on how a kid thinks:

Calvin (searching through his drawer): Oh no, Oh no! Where are my cartoon underpants?

Mom: In the laundry. Wear something else.

Calvin: RRRRGGHHH! I hate it when I can't gird my loins with funny animals.
