Calvin & Hobbes Bridge Weight Limit (Watterson) - RF Cafe

Calvin's Father Explains How Bridge
Weight Limits Are Determined
(Calvin & Hobbes, 11/26/1986)

This has always been one of my favorite Calvin & Hobbes comic strip episodes (November 26, 1986). Calvin's father, a patent attorney, is famous for providing zany explanations to Calvin's inquiries about physics, astronomy, and other science subjects which he knows nothing about. Here, Calvin asks how weight limits are determined for bridges. His father's answer seems a perfect analogy to what politicians are doing to our economy today in response to the Wuhan Virus pandemic. I'm surprised this comic has not been a "viral" meme on social media websites - which maybe it is but I wouldn't know since I do not visit them, so I'll take credit for it. IMHO, the shutdowns are entirely unnecessary except in the worst areas. "You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before." - former Chicago mayor.

Bill Watterson at drawing board - RF CafeComposed of three hardcover, four-color volumes in a sturdy slipcase, this edition will include all Calvin and Hobbes cartoons that ever appeared in syndication. Available October 5, 2005 - order now to have in time for Christmas! Separate book editions available now.This is an interesting write-up on Calvin & Hobbes creator Bill Watterson on the Fandom website. Calvin's father's appearance is a likeness of Watterson himself. Here is the Wikipedia entry for Calvin & Hobbes. The entire collection of Calvin & Hobbes comic strips are contained in The Complete Calvin and Hobbes [Box Set], which I own.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
