IT was a dharma coat. Why does he need a parka on the island or the desert

It looked like he "beamed" in from somewhere cold. Interesting :)

Tunisia was the same place as the polar bear that CharLOTTE was checking out right?

Ah another can of worms they opened.  Yes, did he plan to arrive there?  I think he did and now we may have an idea where the polar bear came from in Tunisia.

Teleported in from somewhere cold and injured along the way.  Amazing!

I'm not so sure he came from somewhere cold. Maybe he didn't know where he'd end up so he took the jacket.

I could not tell which Dharma symbol was on it, anyone??

I thought it was the orchid.

Don't remember seeing the Orchid logo...

Sledge has it up, it is a new logo.

I agree that it is for the orchid. Likely he telported from that station.

Deserts can become very cold in the winter or at night.  So maybe he knew that he could go anywhere he wanted but didnt know when he would show up
Title: Re: Ben's Coat...

That's a fact I can attest to.

Maybe the coat has a special lining to protect him during the travels?  Just kinda reaching for straws there...
Title: Re: Ben's Coat...
Post by: TvFantic on April 25, 2008, 10:38:02 AM
I don't think Ben knew what time or day or year he would show up in.  Just a guess of timeframe.  It's best to wear more layers than needed.  If it was cold, he wouldn't have anything to put on.

I'm not so sure. Why arrive in Tunisia if your destination is Tikrit, Iraq (almost 2000 miles away).  Unless, of course, a portal only allows you to go to certain places.  That could explain the polar bear ending up there as well.

Well maybe it was an emergency-beamout and someone shot at him?

Perhaps the method of "time travel" requires cold temperatures......  ;)

Hi teeth were chattering when he opened his eyes.

If he brought the coat thinking the desert gets cold at night, why did he leave it when he mounted the horse and left? (I'm pretty sure he left it -- he'd already stripped it off when they were searching him and I don't remember him taking it back up when he got on the horse.)
Title: Re: Ben's Coat...
Post by: lostfan777 on April 25, 2008, 03:22:15 PM
I'm voting that he came from somewhere cold (teeth chattering) and in a hurry running from someone (he's wounded) so he might not have had the time to carefully plan the where and when (maybe Smokie ate his travel agent!)
Title: Re: Ben's Coat...

I hate it when that happens...

Orchid.  He was Wickmund on the Pearl.

Agreed.

It's possible that the method itself includes a temperature variation, but as a strong supporter of the Vile Vortices theory, I think that Ben was drawn to Tunisia through a polar location.

Vile vortices are looking a lot better now.  ;)

Someone else suggested that the teleportation trip would be cold. This is the case in many science fiction stories where there is some time spent between. Typically it's very cold and often there's no air. Ben was gasping when he arrived, I believe. So this is my new favorite parka theory.

the center part looks like a bean sprout, i guess that would go along with the orchids cover being that of plant research

stamin and pistil I think are what the center of the flower is called...the thingy in the patch looks like that...

So we know that a polar bear made it there and Ben had a coat when he got there, So we can make a huge jump and say that the teleport station is located in the giant Dharma freezer where the polar bears live. While trying to leave, he was attacked by a polar bear who cut his right arm and scared him(teeth chattering) so thats why he missed his destination both chronologically and geographically.

This makes as much sense as anyother theory I have heard.
Title: Re: Ben's Coat...
Post by: jugdish on April 29, 2008, 02:43:04 PM
Yes it is a huge jump. We know there are polar bears on the island and the orchid video shows us the possiblity of teleportation. This leads us to the conclusion that the polar bear was a test subject of teleportation.

With all due respect, that theories makes a lot less sense the one above.

(were you just joking??)

The only part I like is that the wound may be from a bear.

Right, thanks :)

I thought the wound seemed a little clean to be an animal maim.
