that’s 810693 converted to hex in hungarian. and you don’t have to turn the calculator. ;)
We used to do that in school a lot. Now what’s the equation for 55318008?
Well, part of the equation can be seen on the board in the second panel. Looks like two adjacent circular graphs also partake in the calculations in some way…
There’s another one that equals BOOBLESS in the end, and there’s a story that goes with it: A woman had 69 boobs. The doctor said, “Too, too, too many.” So she took 51 pills times 8.
6922251 x 8 = 55378008

Hey, we used to do this too. I don’t even own a calculator anymore though… good comic!
Waay before you.
@Caitlin: Hah, nice! Kudos to the Australian education system. :D
@Steriema: Aw, oh well – at least it was the brilliant SMBC who came up with it first, although I can’t remember reading it before making my version. Actually I made mine sometime in 2008 as well (evidenced by the signature), but probably not as early as February.
Either way, things like this happen all the time amongst cartoonists – and in 99.9% of the cases it’s purely coincidental. Also – Dave Kellett, creator of Sheldon, blogged about occurrences like this the other day: Read it here.
There was a 69 year old lady who was 2, 2, 2 fat. She went to 5 doctors and 1 of them said: Times these calculations by 8 and you will be…
Australian high school version :P
