What is this? (screencaps - investigate please:))
« on: May 28, 2006, 11:54:14 AM »
Please do not post links to these in other forums. Copy/save and reupload the files if you want, but do not direct link (it costs to host them)

Look at the guy who is behind Michael - his hand in fact. (~1:05:41)



Guy behind Michael and a woman on the very right side (~1:06:20)



What are they holding?

Hey, I'm surprised i never noticed these before! They look almost like wee remote controls, don't they...? Very odd.

Maybe they are phasers like in Star Trek... and after Michael gets out of site they will beam a board... a 2X4 most likley.

Nice find! How baffling though... Do you think we'll find out more in season 3? There must be a reason for them... That will bug me now!

I went to have a look and found this one too. I'm not sure exactly whose hand it is in... (bottom left corner)

The strange thing is that they've got guns so why would they need an alternative? Unless they're what they use for those darts?

Might those be some sort of a taser?

Could be - did you notice that when our lot were shot with the darts, they shook like they were being given an electrical shock of some sort. Maybe these devices are the controls?

My thoughts exactly
some kind of hand held remote for the taser like darts

What are they holding?

Is it just me or does the woman holding the " thing  " look like she could be Libby's mother ?

Now that would be quite a strech, wouldn't it?:)

BTW I would be glad if nobody posted links to these images in other forums please - it costs to host them, you know... Save them, distribute them - do whatever you want, but please don't post just the links... The only allowed forums for these are lost.cubit.net and lost.lt - cause that is what i'm interested. And I really would hate to see these leak to lost-forum.com...

Back to the topic - If these are taser that can only mean:
a) they don't have other weapons
b) they'd rather shock them than shoot them
  1) because they need them
  2) because they do not like killing and are the good guys:)

I don't want to. It's a long explanation, but basically I have places where to put my images for forums and I want to use them. Just that considering this is Lost - I don't want them to hammer my servers to the unusable levels (it would be really uncool if these images started appearing in blogs, etc). I think I'll just add the text on them to remind that they should not be direct linked to unless it's from sites allowed. People must understand that it's uncool to do that:) /me gonna try to build a utopian society just like the others, where people don't direct link to other people's images unless they are allowed to:)
