    So the number 16 is importanton Scadrial, on pg 245, Wax is trying to find out where Miles is going to be next and he writes down the number "35.17" I couldn't help but notice that the 3+5+1+7=16, was that intentional or am I seeing things that aren't really there?

    Brandon Sanderson (

    I slip it in here and there for fun, but it isn't actually important. It is fun when people notice it, though.
