a correct explanation on how something worked JUST ONCE,
and it was enough to scar Calvin for life. I present to you, verily,
the greatest Calvin and Hobbes
comic strip of all time (6-28-90):
Playing a record
? I'll show you something interesting
Calvin looks up at his dad.
Compare a point on the label with a point on the record's outer
edge. They both make a complete circle
in the same amount of time,
But the point on the record's edge has to make a bigger circle
in the same time, so it goes faster. See, two points on one disk move
at two speeds, even though they both make the same revolutions per minute!
Calvin lies in bed, his eyes wide open, unable to sleep.
Honorable Mention #1: The world was black and white
Hey dad, I'll guess any number
you're thinking of! Go ahead, pick a number!
Mmm...OK, I've got it.
Is it 92,376,051?
By golly, it is!
Calvin is dumbfounded.
Wait a minute! You're just trying to get rid of me, aren't you?!
No, you're psychic. Go show mom
