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?
