>>26300023Impossible, stats imply limitations. It'd be like statting the Lady of Pain.
>>26300411The sad state of things
>>26300411I read these as a kid. This mirrors how I felt.
>>26300282I've never laughed so hard and been so mad simultaneously in my entire life I hope you die
>>26300282Your Comic-Fu has clearly come at the expense of your soul.
>>2630002310 mg dose of methylphenidate, twice daily.
That was pretty good for something so wrong, so just in case anyone wants to save this monstrosity
Rev up those feels.

>>26300282Oh god fucking damnit
on a side note, I'm impressed so many of you remember C&H so wellWhat are the rules of Calvinball?
>>26300643Rule 1: you must wear a mask.Rule 2: Other than rule 1, you may not play the same way twice.
>>26300643wear masks, have ball
>>26300643There were rules?
>>26300589>>26300613Bye bye hobbes
>>26300665What are you? Some kind of PLEB!?
>>26300671See, it's not nearly as effective when it's not canon.Faggot.
>>26300671You're not ruining this for anyone, arsehole.
>>26300677I guess so.Enlighten me.C&H dump time
>>26300643There's a freeze penalty for using spoilers that lasts until I hit you with the Calvinball.
>>26300685You seem upset
>>26300722>>26300704>>26300671Wow, all three of you guys used the same shitty edit.Next you'll start telling me that Calvin and Hobbes grew up to be The Narrator and Tyler Durden.
>>26300589...I felt nothing
>>26300742Maybe he did anon, maybe he did...

>>26300776At least inside yes, sometimes.I can feel the indifference and apathy emanating out of me.
>tfw noodle incident
>>26300770You think you can kill me so easily mortal? Remember this strip?
>>26300758Someone actually wrote this.http://ignatz.brinkster.net/cfightclub.html>>26300770
>>26300837Yeah, it was right in his.I actually have this in the collection. It's quite heart-rending.
>>26300846What the fuck man, this is actually a thing?
>>26300833So what did you guys think the noodle incident was?It's kind of like the faked X-rays in Malcolm in the Middle - the worst thing they ever did.
>>26300854This is the last comic of Calvin and Hobbes. It ended just like our childhoods have.
>>26300902He made a mess in the kitchen.With noodles.
>>26300902>faked X-rays in Malcolm in the MiddleHoly shit that was hilarious.
>>26300940No, it happened at school.
>>26300917Yes, with potential stretched out before us.>Bill Watterson of Earth, you are capable of inspiring great hope>Welcome to the Blue Lantern Corps
It's still weird hearing it called Calvin and Hobbes.
>>26300950The school kitchen
>>26300962...did you call it something else?
>>26300980>>26300981It was edited in Australia a little, mainly changing to our spelling of words like 'colour', 'favour', 'doughnut' and the like, although some more significant changes to make it more appealing to our audience. It was called Mikey and Tigey here.
>>26301073I'm a Kiwi and it was called 'Calvin and Hobbes' here.Why did you have a different name?
>>26300282Well played you son of a bitch.
>>26301073>Mikey and TigeyAustralia can burn in a fire.
>>26300282>>26300589I do believe the internet has slowly eroded my soul into nothingness... because these feels... I don't know them...
>>26301093You tell me, man. I have no fucking idea.
>>26301073Mikey and Tigey?Huh, I had no idea they changed the name in other countriesAnyone else own this shelf destroying monstrosity?
>>26301129Not cool, Shas. Not cool.
>>26301073>Mikey and TigeyOk, see, the title itself was a joke.John Calvin believed in predestination. Calvin claims nothing is really his fault.Thomas Hobbes did not have a high opinion of humanity. Hobbes is proud to not be human.
>>26301153Man, I wish I did. How much did it cost?
>>26301153I do not but now that I know of it, I will.
>>26301153I got it as a gift. You could kill someone with just one of those books.
>>26301180I wanted to get one when it came out like 8 years ago and it cost around $150.

>>26301073In Denmark it's called "Steen & Stoffer", Stoffer being a name but also meaning 'drugs'I still haven't really adapted to the english name. When you grow up with something, it's hard to shake off names.
>>26301156'Twas a good laugh before I go to sleep.

>>26301249It's about as distinctly Kiwi a cartoon as you can get, so it's almost unknown overseas.Here's an example.
>>26301360True. I mean, there were hundreds of good cartoons, but we only se a select few on the doors to teacher's offices or learning support rooms.
>>26300770>mr BunWhy does everyone assume that Calvin and Susie marrying is an inevitability?

Has anyone ever applied the Calvinball principle to their traditional games collection?
>>26301482It goes badly.
>>26301482No, but I'd love to play a game of Calvinball
>>26301503>"play" CalvinballNo anon, you cannot play Calvinball. It's something you live, something you breathe. Calvinball is a way of life.
>>26301482I've come close

>>26300643>"Other kids' games are all such a bore!>They've gotta have rules and they gotta keep score!>Calvinball is better by far!>It's never the same! It's always bizarre!>You don't need a team or a referee!>You know that it's great, 'cause it's named after me!"The only rule is that Calvinball may never be played with the same rules twice. Otherwise, you make up the rules as you go. It's a game of creativity and wit, not stamina or athletic skill.
>>26302046Well? Stat them, then.

>>26302355I feel like you interpreted my comment as criticism, when in fact I meant it as a compliment.
>>26300589>I'm crying because out there he's gone, but he's not gone inside me.ffffffffffff
>>26300883You never seen the pic of Hobbes saying to Calvin "I want you to hit me as hard as you can."
>>26300846>>26300883>>26303248Aww shit. My mind is now full fuck.But it also makes sense.
>>26301918>>26303213That one got me too.
>>26300613It's a comic strip.No feels were felt.
>>26300770>>26304413>>26304445>>26304466This fanfiction gives me good feels.C&H lives forever.I'm actually sort of glad that Bill Watterson ended C&H instead of dragging it out until it was a lifeless husk. This way it stays good forever.
>>26300770>>26304413>>26304445>>26304466Aw, that's cute.As a heterosexual male I don't say that about many things, but that shit's adorable, yo.
Damn it, /tg/. I came here for warhams, not emotions.
That's what you get for posting Calvin and Hobbes.
Why is this thread still here.
>>26307209Because laying games of imagination is /tg/.And C&H captures that wonderfully.
>>26307250doge pls go
>>26300846It fell apart on the frist comparison.Hobbes has a physical medium, while Durden is a completly unrelated persona.One is an imaginary friend, the other is a tulpa.
>>26303346Why are you so stupid?
>>26300742>>26300846It just feels right.Until you think.
>>26304466So Hobbes winds up teaching Bacon Calvinball?Holy Feels...>>26300282Wait, Wha->>26300589Fucking hell, man...
>>26301153next to my dilbert 2.0, i could kill a puma with those volumes
>>26301417>>26301428Is there really sexual tension, and not just childhood arguing?
>>26312253At the very beginning it is made pretty obvious that the two like each other but are just still in the "boys/girls are icky" stage of life.During one argument, insulf-flinging match Calvin even says "it's shameless the way we flirt."
>>26301918That line was terrible, though. It's Star Wars Prequel-tier writing.
>>26312784You'd be surprised how inarticulate a 6-year-old can be.Oh wait, no you shouldn't.
>>26313041Sometimes he is, sometimes he isn't. Like most 6-year-olds I know.
My mom changed her nickname for me to Calvin when this strip came out, even got me a stuffed tiger for a wedding gift. I knew I had married well when the wife first saw it and hugged it screaming HOBBES!It currently hides on a kitchen ledge over the breakfast table.
>>26317948Why is Hobbes getting so rumproasted over Calvin getting his dick wet?
>>26318003Yeah Hobbes was always firmly pro Calvin and Susie.
>>26318003Hobbes was always the one that liked Suzie, and Calvin thought she was gross.
>>26318003There's another version where Hobbes gives Calvin a wink and the "OK" sign. Dunno which is the original, but the angry one seems to get posted more often, for some reason.
>>26300589Why /tg/...why can't I feel anything inside me?
>>26319585Your regret or worry over this only proves you're at least a semi-decent person. I'm disappointed to hear this, but at least you are not a lost cause

Now I feel like reading the comics again.Six hours and no stats.
>>26300282Fuck you, Carlos.
>>26300756yeah, it wasn't that depressing actually, but i didn't read it as a child
The cardboard box does have its limits.Right-side up? Time machine.Upside-down? Transmogrifier.On it's side? Duplicator.Of course, Calvin would later refine and miniaturize transmogrification tech enough to fit inside a water pistol. And there's his various (and rather creatively designed) snow golems.Y'know, maybe Calvin's an artificer prodigy.
>>26300432Indeed, there is only one game that ONE mortal manage to best Tzeentch in...>>26300643...That game... Was Calvinball...>>26300770Also... D'aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwww!>>26300980...I called it Calvin and Hobbies...>>26301381Heh, sheep herding...
>>26300282Why's everyone mad at this post?I don't get it.
>>26331981Raccoon Died, we all cried, something something lemon lime...
>>26332083I don't follow.
>>26335116In one comic of Calvin and Hobbes, the duo found a small dying verminbeast. They tried to resuscitate, and brought it to their mother. Despite their best efforts (even using the Cardboard box of imagination) the verminbeast died. This made them sad, but strengthened their connection to each other.
>>26335116Top of the thread, m7
>>26300282Well now i'm sad.
>>26301417Because Roslyn isn't going to stick around after she deflowers him.
>>26331981Simple:>These people haven't had a raccoon problem.>These people haven't had a number of pet deaths high enough to desensitize them to animal death.
>>26300282Damn dude, there hasn't been a reaction like this since some troll asked who Picard was.
>>26338779...It was Kirk.
>>26338630Or>These people remember their first or early pet deaths and remember how it felt and can empathize
>>26339540This. It's less about feeling bad about this particular raccoon that we never see dying, it's more about empathizing with Calvin as he handles these complex emotions for the first time. Like you said, it relies on remembering when your first pet died.RIP, Gunner. You were a better dog than I deserved.
