She: Whew! You never decide!
Me: I always decide! Even if I decide not to decide.

We cannot but decide, even if we decide not to decide. The good thing about decisions is that they can be reconsidered and changed once they are made. Never before.

Lies’ elements

Words are the elements of lies.


Real as a tiger could be

March 15th, 2007

We have already quoted Calvin & Hobbes here several times. In Wikipedia’s entry on Calvin & Hobbes it says:

Calvin sees Hobbes a different way (alive), while other characters see him as something else (a stuffed animal).
Wikipedia, 2007-03-15

In fact, there is a whole article on its own about Hobbes including a discussion of his reality, also quoting creator Bill Watterson:

When Hobbes is a stuffed toy in one panel and alive in the next, I’m juxtaposing the “grown-up” version of reality with Calvin’s version, and inviting the reader to decide which is truer.
— Bill Watterson, as cited in Wikipedia, 2007-03-15

I remember having discussed this issue with friends. Apparently, many (that is most if not all of my friends) see Hobbes as a stuffed animal. They think that Hobbes as a real tiger exists only in Calvin’s imaginations.
Whereas, I think that Hobbes is real as a tiger could be, and it is only other’s imagination where Hobbes is a stuffed animal.

Though, this is imaginary, of course.

Prove me wrong

It is an hypothesis that an hypothesis will always be an hypothesis. And, because this is easily proven wrong it is true.
