Skyfire's Magic Roundabout (Thanks Socket Ryanist) - I'm no mathematician, but I'm starting to see a pattern in most webcomics. Since my daily encounters with math revolve around struggling to figure out what 15% of my restaurant tab is (those all-you-can-eat hot wings don't walk themselves to the table), my formula may be a bit off, but I think you'll get my point:

The only thing we can hope is that the same person who taught him those "perspective lessons" also teaches him about things like "breathing" and "driving in heavy traffic," and that those lessons net similar results. While I'm sure Mr. Skyfire has a great life writing jokes on Popsicle sticks once he passes ART-D101 How To Use A Ruler Without Inadvertently Castrating Yourself, I think I'll stick with old Calvin and Hobbes compilations for my comic fix. The Internet puts a lot of things to good use, but comics, apparently, aren't one of them.
