The secret to the “601” will be known to anyone who has seen the still-brilliant 1971 film The Andromeda Strain. (Do not, repeat, NOT attempt to watch the horrifyingly bad made-for-TV remake!) When the scientists studying an extra-terrestrial organism ask the computer to extrapolate its growth capability, the system suffers an overload, displaying “601” on all the screens. We are privy to our clever badger’s snarky comment, thus we see him in his anthro form. He’d probably overload the placement agent, if she saw him as he really is!
