* How does Hobbes's status as an endangered species prevent him from meeting babes? I heard that [[Franchise/TheSimpsons the ladies dig you when you're the last of something]].

** Here's how the time loop ultimately plays out. *** 6:30 Calvin and 6:30 Hobbes travel to 8:30 to pick up the completed story from Calvin's Future Self. *** 8:30 Calvin doesn't have the story, because two hours ago, he went to the future to get it. *** After arguing for a while, both Calvin's realize that the reason the 8:30 Calvin doesn't have the story if because somewhere between 6:30 and 8:30, the 7:30 Calvin should have written the story, but didn't. (Most likely because, one hour ago, he went to the future to get it.) *** 6:30 and 8:30 Calvin travel back to 7:30 to make that Calvin do the homework, while 6:30 and 8:30 Hobbes remain at 8:30. *** At 7:30, the 6:30 and 8:30 Calvins try to force the 7:30 Calvin to do the homework, but the 7:30 Calvin points out that anything they do to him, they'll end up suffering themselves. *** Meanwhile, at 8:30, the 6:30 and 8:30 Hobbeses write a story for Calvin, therefore changing history. When the 6:30 and 8:30 Calvins return, the 6:30 Calvin and Hobbes return to 6:30 with the written story.

** "You have to admit it's slowed down the traffic on our road." It's definitely so that people can look and take pictures of the snowmen.

* If I recall correctly, Calvin and Hobbes first came across the [[http://i.imgur.com/KFrdt.jpg Odd Tree Stump]] in a story arc where some of the woods were bulldozed to make room for a place called "Shady Acres Condominiums". However, they pass by this stump many [[http://www.gocomics.com/calvinandhobbes/2010/02/14 more]] [[http://www.gocomics.com/calvinandhobbes/2010/02/25 times]] over the rest of the series. What happened to Shady Acres?

** This is actually part of a broader - and important - question: if Hobbes is real on some level (as ambiguously suggested by WordOfGod and debated above) and not merely an imaginary friend, then is the same level of reality to be ascribed to the other zany adventures that no one besides Calvin and Hobbes experiences as real? It's difficult to see the "Spaceman Spiff", "Stupendous Man" and "Tracer Bullet" stories or Calvin daydreaming about being a dinosaur as anything other than figments of his imagination, but what about the times they transmogrified each other or travelled through time? Are these events part of the same reality that Hobbes is, or did Calvin (and Hobbes) just imagine them?

* The Binocular Arc: Calvin accidentally breaks his dad's binoculars by "dropping them" (by tossing them to himself while running). Yet when he shows Hobbes the damage, '''It's in a powdered state in a box!''' What did he do to those binoculars?

** Considering that they're on ComicBookTime, Shady Acres likely doesn't exist after that comic. Quite possibly the wood that was cut down that time is the same wood that recurs throughout the run of the strip.
