The stopwatch in these "Billy mentor" strips is modeled after a green stopwatch I had as a kid. I played around with it a lot. I remember one time I timed how long it took to drive to our grandparents' house. Why I remember that of all things, I have no idea.

There's a similar joke to this in a Pearls Before Swine strip. Rat is working as a waiter and a couple asks how much they should pay as a tip. He says a good rule of thumb is to take the price of your meal and move the decimal point one place to the right. I wasn't thinking of that when I wrote this strip, but it sorta came out looking like it.
