The Calvin And Hobbes Way

I would like to follow Calvinism. Not the philosophies preached by the late 16th century philosopher, John Calvin, rather those explained in the simple word of Calvin, of the Calvin And Hobbes fame.

Calvin, though by sight is a six year old kid with an obsession with this stuffed tiger, to the point of thinking he is real, is actually a rather intelligent and practical young man. His wisdom is easy to understand and often applicable directly in real life. Which is something most of us lack. Caught up in the daily problems, that we term as life, there is always a small glimmer of hope in the form of decidedly out of the way solutions. We forget, on more than one occassion to be creative, to be out of the box, to be free of what is expected and challenge the limits of normality to their very hilt.

For example,

"(after being asked to explain Newton's First Law of Motion in his own words): Yakka foob mog. Grug pubbawup zink wattoom gazork. Chumble spuzz. I love loopholes."
~ Calvin

What could be more perfect in life than that? A loophole that every student dreams of in their most beautiful dreams and scathing nightmares.

Signing Out,
Calvin(ism) Rocks.

You have indeed justified devoting an entire label to Calvin and Hobbes. Calvin deserves it, and much more :)
