Yep, two things :-)
#1: the available diskspace on a datablock is less than 512 bytes, there'a a datablock header of (afaik) 72 bytes:
512 - 72 = 440 bytes available
#2: every row has a row header, which is at least 14 bytes (depending on Presence/Compress Bits/PPI).
The first variable column in a table needs 4 bytes overhead and each addtitional VarChar 2 bytes.
Plus a NULL still needs some space unless it's COMPRESSed (i never checked the sizing rules for a compressed VarChar)
