Budding Engineers Giddy as Little Schoolgirls, Thanks to "Calvin and Hobbes."

By: The Dude on the Right
I had a lot of topics I was thinking of blogging about today, and I suppose if I started at the beginning of today, through my typing now, you would have been enlightened by my thoughts on how I thought Barack Obama could have vaulted himself into "everyman" territory at yesterday's Democratic debate at a sweltering Soldier Field (let's just say "dressing for the weather" rather than "dressing Presidential" - hell Bill Clinton played a saxophone!), how Stu Gotz figures the New York City council is on the verge of over-goofing the Chicago City Council with their supposed proposal to ban the words "bitch" and "ho," and how I still get excited watching a Space Shuttle take off.

And so, instead of intellectual things, this blog is about a comic strip - "Calvin and Hobbes."

Sure, "Calvin and Hobbes" has been out of print for quite some time now, but thanks to the internet, and the site gocomics, I get to again relive the fun Calvin and his stuffed tiger, Hobbes, have, on a daily basis.  I guess I have Google to thank for this because it was when I set up my Google home page that I found the gocomics site, and sure enough, they had a "Calvin and Hobbes" RSS feed, providing me a link, everyday to a classic strip.

Now sure, that's not that compelling, but yesterday was one of the strips that even made budding engineers giddy as little schoolgirls.  I vaguely remember the day, it was back in college, at the fraternity house where I was a member, and Stevie gathered some of us together to test something seen in a comic strip.  I don't remember exactly who was there, it might have been Odie, Gumby, or maybe Shithead, along with myself, but I don't think Yoda, Tosh, Elmer, Markie, nor Hammy were around.  T.P. was probably back in New Jersey, Flange might have been at 7-11, and Laughing Boy was probably sleeping.  But there we were, some of us, with Stevie, in probably the 2nd head, to see if maybe the world's most brilliant engineer, Calvin, had stumbled onto something of utmost importance in the world of toilets and toilet paper.  And, as budding engineers, we had to test the scientific experiment over and over again, at different toilets, do some modifications to our own control groups, and sure enough, Calvin found a way to make young adults giddy as schoolgirls.

Not wanting to infringe on some copyright things I won't post the actual comic here, but if you want to do your own scientific experiment at home, thanks to Calvin and his stuffed tiger Hobbes, this link should take you to the comic that brought a giant smile to my face yesterday.  As stressful as college can be, something as simple as toilet paper can bring good times.  Good times.  Go ahead, try it at home, but depending on your toilet and toilet paper, be sure to have a plunger around, just in case.

That's it for this one!  I'm The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
