Rants & Ramblings

random commentary about culture, media, politics, technology and whatnot.


Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.

— Calvin ('Calvin & Hobbes'), on aliens

It’s probably my favorite Calvin and Hobbes quote ever. I rediscovered it last night while flipping through a Calvin and Hobbes anthology.

Speaking of which … I was at Barnes and Noble on Friday night and saw that The Complete Calvin and Hobbes is out! At the Clarendon store, over by the information desk, they have Vol. 2 set out for people to flip through. The books are huge. But oh so cool.
