Right after they start charging for AIR, this will be next (it’ll happen, just watch).
Calvin and Hobbes reference!!
XD one of my fav strips
But then again, don’t we all wish to violate the laws of gravity?
Only circumstancialy. Otherwise we’d be suckin’ space
Mmm… Well, I guess there would be gravity outside as a service xD… But I wouldn’t pay the bill for the gravity in my house!! But I could regret that on the toilet…
Just have the toilet on the ceiling…
Ahaha That’s great. I loved Calvin and Hobbes. Ah good times.
i have just been violated.
There’d be a huge upswing in the sales of “Zero-G” toilets. Thay were originally designed for use in space stations in geosyncronous orbit. They replace gravity with centripedal force, to spin the waste away.
QUIT BREAKING MY LAWS!
you misspelled your name…
I remember seeing this in a Calvin And Hobbes book once.
you all should appreciate gravity more… what do you think holds our atmosphere here?
I’d never, ever pay my Gravity bill. I’d have one of those vacuum suction things that astronauts use to use teh bathroom and I’d propell myself around with my Airzooka. Aaah…good times.
Eirikr, you are correct, air is charged where i live(see name) and i think its wrong…
tire air costs 15 cents to fill em up, thats really stupid xS
Calvin and Hobbes. “I couldn’t do my homework because my parents for got to pay the gravity bill….” My history teacher is awesome, he puts a Calvin and Hobbes strip on every test.
maybe it has something to do with living on the edge of some sort of spherical space station or something. I mean he would have to pay for artificial gravity wouldn’t he?
when you pay to fill your tires, you ARE NOT paying for air. You’re paying for the use of the air compressor which costs the gas station money to provide and maintain. 15 cents is hardly an exorbitant amount to pay to keep your tires from shreading on the highway. if you don’t like it, go buy your own air compressor likw we did (they’re readily available and not that expencive) or just don’t air up your tires and spend a fortune on replacements.
This explains it…
I wish I had gravity bills. I would never ever pay them.
Malachite Dragon! This is like finding another family member! Are you talking about those huge, cone-ish, plastic things that you hold in one hand and pull back a small plastic handle and release, making the flexible plastic on the inside fire a gust of air? I have one of those, and it’s buckets of fun.
Why yes, Top Rooster, I am! =D MY TWIN! I have 5 cats and 1 dog, 3 of the cats are terrified of it, 1 doesnt give a rats ass (the oldest), the youngest adores it, and the dog is confused as hell over it. THey make an improved version of the Airzooka, actually, called the Megazooka, I believe- it has a trigger so that you dont have to pull back, you just rapid-fire the triger X3 MESSA WANT ONE!
Those things are so much fun! you can move the hair of a person across the room! And it’s even more fun if it’s a toupe(e?)
LOL those things are great! Me and my friends each bought one of those at the mall and had a fire fight in the food court, we got kicked out by a security guard who seriously was a midget! . . . . . and anyways this is one of my favorite comics, a must print for my physics teacher!
Obey gravity: It’s the law.
I hate it when that happens…
hehe…. it’s _amazing_ the number of comics that blatanly take punchlines right from Calvin and Hobbes, even now.
Susie, you are overlooking the fact that I drew this back in 1995. I haven’t read Calvin and Hobbes in 15 or so years now. I don’t remember enough to rip off Bill Watterson any more… but back in the mid 90s I remembered just enough to forget that it wasn’t my idea.
Although I don’t pay bills, I find taxes and bills for various and ridiculous things to be outrageous. In some states in the US, there are taxes for paying taxes.
i think i missed it, but did Biff grow his eyebrows back?
Pay that sucker online, I do. Just remember to do that change-of-address thing if you move out of the “area”
Aaah… The original calvin and hobbes book contained this one. Friggin classic. And yes, that’s why biff didn’t do his homework.
yay! That’s one bill I would NEVER pay! Whee! *flies around room*
I saw the calvin and hobbes comic in Yukon Ho!
the price of suction boots skyrocketed when the tax was started.
and when they built that glass wall. that thing was great.
I want one of these too….
You know, if I ran the Gravity Utilities, I’d turn them back on intermittently for people who didn’t pay the bill…
float … float … CRASH! … float … float …float … float … float … CRASH! … float … float … float … float … CRASH! …
Hmmmm. Gravity’s really unpredictable now. But pay us and we can keep it steady. Ready to pay now??
Gotta admit, this is a pretty good one.
Now Biff, pay that off fast!
(love the calvin and hobbes refference)
i prefer the andy riley version, in great lies to tell small kids. “the penalty for breaking the law of gravity is hanging.”
speaking of which…..I don’t think I’ve paid my gravity bill in a while….good thing I nailed down my couch and T.V.
XDD Brilliance. Calvin and Hobbes is a work of art, seriously. Nice work Chris. xD
Wouldn’t this come in handy when he’s going to school (see #40)
First time I got hit by an Airzooka, I thought it was a Nerf ball. Then I couldn’t find the damn thing!
lets just hope that he remembered took the tacks of ceiling
if only it was this fun when you forgot to pay all the other bills
