And a tip o' the ol' margarita to you, James! Hey, I bet that's Hurley's next recreational endeavor. Surfing should be a natural for him; he's naturally buoyant! And he could use a little exercise, if you asked me.

Umm, yeah, sure, but wouldn't they just get dizzy and fall down after awhile?

How would they be able to wave at passing ships?

It's looking like ol' Archie isn't the only one hitting the margarita shaker this Friday evening.

I don't hate Jack, he means well. But he keeps screwing things up worse than they were when he started (medical treatment aside of course, it's the one thing he doesn't screw up).

He makes bad decisions yet never loses his self-righteous air....he and Locke need to look themselves in the mirror...realize they don't know wtf they are doing, and let Sayid take over :-)

I'm no expert....so your mileage may vary

Hey, since when do the most qualified guys ever actually get to run things?

Didn't the monk say that they only produced 108 cases of that particular vintage that Desmond was drinking? That's something.

Okay. now if you showed me this picture outside the context of this thread, I'd never guess it was Juliet. I don't know if its the hairstyle, or all that leg, but I never would have matched the two up.

Part of it may be because they were almost fully explained at the end of the web internet game last summer. You and anyone else here who wants to know what the numbers really mean can go look it up right now - there are plenty of sites out there summarizing the results of the web game.

The writers will still probably eventually get around to going over this territory again in the tv episodes, by why wait for the rehash when you could know right now? Get googling.

I've always been confused by the whole TV prime time thing. Eastern has it 8-11, and Central has it from 7-10. That occurs simultaneously as Central is west of Eastern, so the same feed can be used for both of these time zones. However, that logic doesn't hold for Mountain and Pacific. Pacific prime time is 8-11 and Mountain is 7-10, but that does NOT occur simultaneously because Pacific is west of Mountain.

I once made the comment that Sayyid and a few Losties should raid the abandoned camp to gain materials needed to cobble together a simple radio. It just occured to me, Hurley's VW has everything Sayyid would need to make a simple morse code transmitter/receiver with antenna (wire).
At the right time of day/night, atmospheric conditions allow for insane distances of transmission/reception of simple radio signals, there are hobbyist called 'DXers' that get into this stuff. Sayyid would know about this stuff and would easily be capable of putting it together.

The van would have wire (speaker/lights, etc) for antenna, the radio would give the basics needed for signal generation and amplification, alternator + voltage regulator would give basic electricity when coupled with a little 'windmill' to crank it.

Toughest part would be basic tools, but with enough time I'm sure Sayyid could pull it off.

They already did that. Sayid and Hurley made a radio using the old one they had and some scrap back in season one. They sat on the beach listening to a radio broadcast before the batteries died.

I guess I should have been more clear: a radio transmitter, morse code, to broadcast to the outside world. Send an SOS, that kind of thing. Naturally, that's not going to happen, as the show would be over.

Hmm... perhaps the "Magic Box" that Ben told Locke about was used to wish for a surgeon for Ben, an old girl friend for Desmond, A brother for Mr Echo and a Dad for Locke. It caused all the plane crashes and set us up with where we are today

it is coming up to Christmas in Lost time. If those things keep falling from the sky I'm starting to think the magic box is just a phone line to Santa. He does decide whose been naughty or nice after all and gifts appropriately.

I hope that wasn't the sound of sleigh hitting the water ...

Well guys - the admins let us keep it going longer than usual due to popular demand, but this thread has reached the limit of what can be handled effectively by the forum. We all would like to keep a permanent record of all the early speculation and theories, and that can still be done via this thread - even after it becomes archived.

Switching now will give us a decent base of discussion in the new thread during the last few weeks of this season, and hopefully all the speculation generated by a fantastic season finale (fingers crossed).

Discussion can continue here:
http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=837662

REMINDER: Any email masochists out there that subscribed to this thread will have to make sure you subscribe to the new thread.
