Calvin & Hobbes Cartoonist Gives the Best Career Advice

In 1995, Calvin & Hobbes cartoonist Bill Watterson gave a commencement address at an American college, as is the way – he gave the graduates some advice… but it seems it was a little different to the normal advice you hear about careers, wages, and success. Cartoonist Gavin Aung from zenpencils.com has paid tribute to Watterson by creating this strip, illustrating his advice in Calvin & Hobbes’ style.

Introducing… Flesh and Blood

Every now and then an idea surfaces which makes me wonder, why hasn’t this already happened?

The concept seems to be so simple:

1000 people die each year waiting for a transplant.

7000 units of blood are needed every day to meet hospital demand with approximately 225,000 extra blood donors needed per year.

The Church teaches us to give our time, money, and resources.

Do our bodies count as resources, or gifts given to us by God?

If so, what do we do about it?

Are You Happy Now?

A new organisation has been launched called “Action for Happiness”, which according to the BBC website is “The world’s first membership organisation dedicated to spreading happiness”

If I was being cynical I would be tempted to ask how “Happiness” is measured, but the Action for Happiness Website seems to be down at the moment – kinda stopping how much research I can do into this.

Therefore I’m just going to leave you with a few questions:

  • Are we really a depressed nation?
  • What gets people down?
  • What can we do about that?
  • What is the key to happiness?
