Too Cool Not to Share

ON THE EDUCATION SYSTEM. We found one of our favorite "Calvin and Hobbes" strips recently, and it still makes us laugh. The 4-panel strip:
  1. Calvin at the front of classroom, holding up a small box: "Today for show and tell, I've brought a tiny marvel of nature: a single snowflake." 
  2. He continues: "I think we might all learn a lesson from how this utterly unique and exquisite crystal..." 
  3. Looking into the box with his (former) snowflake: "...turns into a boring molecule of water, just like every other one, when you bring it into the classroom." 
  4. Turning and walking away, tossing the box over  his shoulder: "And now, while the analogy sinks in, I'll be leaving you drips and going outside." Teacher word balloon: "CALVIN!"
