I thought it would be funny to find patterns with the number 216.

216 is an area code in Cleveland, Ohio.

ETC-216 is a synthetic variant of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and one of several HDL targeted therapies the company is developing for patients with CHD.

There are 216 colors that are considered "browser safe."

216 is the smallest untouchable number which is also a cube
Plato's number: Plato alludes to the fact that 216 is equal to 63, where 6 is one of the numbers representing marriage since it is the product of the female 2 and the male 3. Plato was also aware of the fact the the sum of the cubes of the 3-4-5 Pythagorean triple is equal to 216
Two hundred sixteen 216 = 23*33 = 63 = 33 + 43 + 53, making it the smallest cube that's also the sum of three cubes
216 is the the number of colors in the Netscape Web-safe color palette
216 is the smallest magic product of a 3 by 3 multiplicative magic square
216 is the smallest abundant cube


and you chew an average of 216 time while eating a meal. (i just made that last one up, but who knows)

I am going to spend the next several years finding a way all of these relate and I'll let y'all know about it.

Very creative and entertaining! I have a friend who says every guy she dates ends up being a jerk (which is not true at all). Next time she brings this up I will be sure to give her a little piece of advice from Max's mentor.
