    Brilliant. I got a book for my 21st, my only disappointment was I had wasted 21 years of life pre Calvin & Hobbes

    Great to have it up free, but every couple of cartoon strips (on my PC anyway) it puts up large annoying ads that you have to wait a lengthy period before skipping. No such thing as a free lunch I guess.

    We get Calvin and Hobbes a very day in the Bangkok Post. Today they made wishes.
    Calvin wished for a billion dollars and his own Continent. Hobbes wished for a sandwich and his wish came true.

    Also, I’m in the market for a plug-in that would replace “reaching out” with the word “emailing”.

    And don’t forget this fan-made Calvin and Hobbes dance animation. It’s very short, but well done.
