    The Da Vinci Code - Page 153?

    I'm intrigued, in the da vinci code, on page that should be marked a page 153, it says "SOS" in place of the page number. I've been searching the internet but I can't find anything about it. Any ideas?

    It's probably a gag made by the editors, computation.

    People took the book too seriously despite the author making it clear in the book it's just a story. People love conspiracy. And the more you tell them they are wrong, the more they believe in it. Foolishness and human nature.

    Want an example? SOS on page 153... 153 minutes is how long the movie lasts. *wink*

    Maybe the book has made you so stupid that you're now illiterate.

    Which means you can't read this.

    I like pink bunnies.

    Is it possible that everyone lost their minds?

    If I did your homework for you, then you might pass your class without learning how to write a program like this. Then you might graduate and get your degree without learning how to write a program like this. You might become a professional programmer without knowing how to write a program like this. Someday you might work on a project with me without knowing how to write a program like this. Then I would have to do you serious bodily harm. - Jack Klein
