    It seems like baseball has different rules for Calvin than everyone else...

    Poor Calvin, I can empathize with his lack of sports ability. :) Always the one picked last for teams. :) So happy those days are in the past.

    I grew up in a rural area... most of our sports were more like Calvinball than organized sports... We had plenty of guys like Moe and I was a Calvin. I'm glad those days are past too.

    Is there anything worse than being outsmarted by your own stuffed animal?

    As those who follow this thread likely know, I usually offer a brief quip. Today's words are below and a bit longer than usual... as well as possibly being a bit non-politically correct...

    I'm going to disagree with Susie on this one. Unusual place for a rant but bear with me.

    Women often accuse men of demanding they (women) remain painfully skinny. The reality is that bizarre expectation doesn't come from heterosexual men. The main driver of that mindset are the fashion industry which is, as a general rule, comprised of women and homosexual men. I can only guess at why homosexual men would want women to be so skinny that they look like boys instead of girls.

    Although there are certainly a spectrum of preferences as we're individuals, heterosexual males are attracted to healthy weighted women as a result of our evolutionary biological imperative. Whether we like to admit it or not, the animal part of our nature as humans wants to pass on the best genes possible and attraction happens from a subconscious level. Yes, humans override the subconscious often but that doesn't remove those drivers.

    All of this to say there's nothing more attractive than a woman who is happy with herself. I'm not a fan of the supposed "body positive" movement who try to prevent being obese is healthy. Be the best, healthiest person that you can be and since neither obese nor malnourished are healthy, don't do either. Rant over.

    I have to disagree, I've been told all my life that guys don't care what you look like, heavy/lite, doesn't matter, then those same guys are seen dating a skinny minni...

    My point was not men don't care what you look like, heavy/lite... If someone told you that, they weren't being honest. Not sure how you drew that from what I wrote... Apparently I wasn't clear enough.

    Attraction is evolutionary... healthier weight, neither too heavy, nor too light. Scientific studies confirm this.

    It sounds like Calvin gained some wisdom (with the help of Hobbes) out of the situation... and I'm not sure Madagascar would be much better to be honest...
