    “What’s there to argue about?!” How about the fact that you’re always “right”?

    Never mind, Calvin. You can mention the incident of dad’s car going down the street in its own from the garage. It was not your fault but gravity played evil. Also jot down dad and mom’s hysterical reaction to the silly incident.

    Quite sure that Calvin’s mother and Wormwood are the ones who are holding on to the i’m-always-right-everyone-else-is-always-wrong attitude.

    I took a “Speech & Debate” class in high school (I only took it because a friend begged me to so that she’s know SOMEONE in there). Anyway, we were given an assignment of presenting a debate, any topic we wanted (within reason, of course). Unfortunately, the teacher paired us and put me with the one kid who pretty much made it his goal in life to make my life miserable. Not wanting to fight, I told him that he could choose the topic: anything as long as it wasn’t religion or politics. Of course, he said, “But I WANT to do one of those!” So that became our topic: Pro or Con: debating religion or politics. He actually agreed, and we aced it.

    I had a coworker who was literally that bad. We had a solder dipping machine in our lab. The instruction manual clearly stated that the height adjustment for the dipper arm was only to be made in the CW direction when the arm was rising and only CCW when it was moving downward, and do it in the reverse order would cause damage to the dipper arm assembly. He took it in his head to be the opposite, and would not be told otherwise. We went and got the manual and showed it to him. His response was to photocopy bits and pieces of the manual and cobble it together to make it say what he thought was right. He then proceeded to do it his way, and he promptly broke the device. When we showed him it was broken, his response was to say, “It was defective to begin with.”

    The company made him a supervisor.

    “Resolved: Calvin is always right.”

    I have counseled my kids and grandkids that if they are in a class that was to hold a debate (I was only there once), if given a choice they should pick the underdog side. There is not much glory in easy victories.

    I think Cal must have learned that from another blonde haired kid who later became one of the worst presidents in history.

    There was a candidate running for governor of Massachusetts back in the eighties. He had been president of the university I attended, where he treated college students like they were in elementary school. His attitude was: I’m right, you’re wrong, and you are also stupid for not realizing that. He was ahead in the polls until about two weeks before the election, when his arrogance led him to berate the most popular anchorwoman in Boston over dinner at his home with the cameras rolling. That was enough to cost him a victory.

    Calvin, you silly boy. Talk political and you’ll always win. Everyone will be confused, they walk away, and you win. For example, “I’d like to say this about that, and of course, as I have said previously in other dialoguing, to further elucidate on my somewhat nebulous attitude about the subject which you may or may not be truncating with you little to nothing attitude about what others think on this matter is somewhat disturbing… to say the least.”
