And now the first Cul de Sac book is only $5.07 on Amazon! Is 507 a prime number? Who picks these prices anyway?

507 isn't prime. It's 3x13x13.

But that only answers one of your questions. :)

Jon Freestone said...

No, 507 is not a prime number (but 509 is).

@gamethyme If a numbers parts add up to a number dividable by 3 you will know the whole number can be divided b 3.

Example: 507 5+0+7=12 12/3=4 so you know 507 is dividable by 3 (507/3=169).

Math trick from grade school. surprised I can remember it 30 years later.

I think we've answered the second question.

I love the watercolor strips in the beginning of this book!

One of my favorite cartoons was the one with Timmy Fretwork at Blisshaven with the free-preschool-association dog discussion culminating in Dill proclaiming "One time I stuck a snow globe in the microwave and pressed Hot Dog". I think this is in the first collection.

But... there was a predecessor comic strip, something having to do with the "snowglobe incident" from a Washington DC museum trip. In my head this ranks up there with the "noodle incident" from Calvin and Hobbes in terms of basic comic-ology. Is this in any of the collections?
