If we go fast enough and pull up just as we hit those rocks, we might, if we’re lucky, clear the ravine and have the ride of our lives! On the other hand, if we miss, we’ll probably spend our few remaining days hooked up to machines and intravenous fluids! It’s either spectacular, unbelievable success, or crushing, hopeless defeat! There’s no middle ground! OK, there IS a middle ground, but it’s for sissy weasels. Calvin and Hobbes are sitting on a sled as Calvin starts to announce the ride of their lifes. It will either result in a heroic action or a defeat with consequences. Hobbes jumps off and rather reads a book next to the warm chimney. Calvin calls him weak.
Calvin is rather the guy for bad ass tattoos, motor cycles and everything that involves a life on the edge. Hobbes is a tiger accountant.
