COMMENTS

The sequence is finite because every number greater than 181 can be represented using just 8 and 27.  Franklin T. AdamsWatters, Apr 21 2006
More generally, the numbers which are not the sum of kth powers larger than 1 are exactly those in [1, 6^k  3^k  2^k] but not of the form 2^k*a + 3^k*b + 5^k*c with a,b,c nonnegative. This relies on the following fact applied to m=2^k and n=3^k: if m and n are relatively prime, then the largest number which is not a linear combination of m and n with positive integer coefficients is mn  m  n.  Benoit Jubin, Jun 29 2010

EXAMPLE

181 is not in the list since 181 = 7*2^3 + 5^3.
