Here's a pretty old post from the blog archives of Geekery Today; it was written about 18 years ago, in 2006, on the World Wide Web.

Another great one from the Calvin and Hobbes reruns today:

Calvin (chewing a huge wad of gum): I need to get a heart rate monitor.

Hobbes: What for?

Calvin: To make sure I’m chewing at my aerobic threshold! Every day I want to see that I’m chewing more gum faster, harder, and longer!

Hobbes: What’s the point of attaching a number to everything you do?

Calvin: If your numbers go up, it means you’re having more fun.

Hobbes: Science to the spirit’s rescue once again.

Where else in the funnies can you find, in nuce, the Austrian critique of the GDP and other econometric mummeries?
