    It's a joke. A reference to The Hitchikers Guide To The Galaxy.
    If you haven't read it, you don't get it.
    (Actually, 42 was in the 2nd book, right? Geez, it's been so long since I read that)

    That was my first thought, but further research revealed it to be 48.

    Ah, 815 again

    Weren't the 8 1 5 marked with lines, arrows?

    The other #s, at least to the right, may have also had lines but they weren't as distinct and may just have been folds or wrinkles in the paper.

    Randolph,...
    For those of you who also watch Curb your Enthusiasm, please recall this last season or the season before when the person who plays Hurley was on that show and portrayed a drug dealer who Larry bought drugs from. I found it funny that for all the things the cops could have arrested him for in California...it was for selling drugs.

    I think it was established in the first book, but the third book was named "Life, the Universe, and Everything." It's been a long time since I've read those, but I still remember it as the series that redefines the word trilogy. :) (Though I think I've heard "Jersey Trilogy" or something in reference to Kevin Smith movies)

    Anyway, yes, I was just making a joke about the significance of 42 there. Though now that I think about it, I don't think it would be a stretch for Hurley to have picked 42 for that reason. Though he might be a little young. (Though J.J. is about the right age.)

    Oh, and (I just checked to make sure) in the Kate flashback episode where she takes the contents of the safe deposit box, she asks for box 815.

    Box 815. What kind of boxes did the company make???

    BTW, Locke is the man.

    Again, he knows exactly what someone else needs, and provides it.

    Why would Hurley be on TV in another country for winning the lottery, unless it was an incredibly huge jackpot (which I don't think it was)??

    It was huge. The TV announcers said before Hurley passed out that whoever has the numbers "has won or will share in a near-record jackpot....this is the 16th week without a winner."

    But then I would think he'd be worth more than 156 million, since his finance guy also said he had doubled his worth later.

    Maybe he shared it with someone...?

    8 people died in the fire at Hurley's shoe factory in Canada.

    Undo the amortization to get the actual amount of cash won as a lump sum, subtract taxes, and allow for "near record" to mean "not the highest" and you're in the right ballpark. Then remember he probably spent some, so doubling what he started with may not mean doubling the jackpot.

    Is it insider trading to use your mystical bad luck to trade stocks?

    I was hoping Sun's "escape time" from the airport would tie in, but that was 11:15. ;)

    Seems to me he may have a mental illness from something happening to him. To get over something like that could be why people called him a warrior.

    What an awesome episode!!! I caught the reference to the box company in Tustin, but it seemed like there were a couple more tie-ins that I recognized and now I can't remember what they were.
