One of the links goes to "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge"

Wouldn't it be a real bitch if we arrived at the end of Lost only to find out that all of this happened during the last dying moments of one of the characters... like Walt maybe ???

Little Mary Margaret was not the best student in Catholic School . Usually she slept through the class.

One day her teacher, a Nun, called on her while she was sleeping. 'Tell me Mary Margaret, who created the universe?'

When Mary Margaret didn't stir, little Johnny who was her friend sitting behind her, took his pencil and jabbed her in the rear.

'God Almighty!' shouted Mary Margaret.
The Nun said, 'Very good' and continued teaching her class.

A little later the Nun asked Mary Margaret, 'Who is our Lord and Savior?'

But Mary didn't stir from her slumber Once again, Johnny came to her rescue and stuck Mary Margaret in the butt.

'Jesus Christ!!!' shouted Mary Margaret and the Nun once again said,'Very good,' and Mary Margaret fell back asleep.

The Nun asked her a third question...'What did Eve say to Adam after she had her twenty-third child?'

Again, Johnny came to the rescue.
This time Mary Margaret jumped up and shouted, 'If you stick that damn thing in me one more time, I'll break it in half!'

The nun fainted.

I agree, i dont think there are any new numbers I think if 6 is relevant its because there are 6 numbers (4,8,15,16,23,42)
Just a thought, does the numbers marry up with the seating plan? I mean, where the oceanic 6 sitting in those seat numbers?

According to this it doesn't. I don't know how accurate it is though ???

Hmmm. Never heard anything about it before now?

If it's too big I'm sure Juggy or one of the mods would have messaged me by now. I've been using it for about a year now.

It's from one of those quizzes you take, my answers seemed to indicate that my best celebrity match was Dean Martin. LOLz

Can't be more than 40... Mach 3.5 gives it a maximum distance of 40 miles. No missile that I know of exceeds Mach 4.2. ???

A Spanish teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine.

'House' for instance, is feminine: 'la casa.'

'Pencil,' however, is masculine: 'el lapiz.'

A student asked, 'What gender is 'computer'?'

Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether 'computer'
should be a masculine or a feminine noun.

Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation.

The men's group decided that 'computer' should definitely be of the feminine gender ('la computadora'), because:
1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic;
2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else;
3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval; and
4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.

(THIS GETS BETTER!)

The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be Masculine ('el computador'), because:
1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on;
2. They have a lot of data but still can't think for themselves;
3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem; and
4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have gotten a better model.

The women won.

Maximum distance from the island would be 40 miles. Which is doable. I have been operating under the assumption that a "freighter" would not be equipped with a military missile system. Hence the slower speed estimate. However, considering what they DO have, I'm not so sure that they don't have something like a RIM launcher. So a Mach 2-3 missile is not so out of the question, as I had first thought.

NINE WORDS WOMEN USE

(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.
 
(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.
 
(3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm.   This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.   
 
(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't do It.     
 
(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing.   (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)
 
(6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a woman can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.   

(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you. Do not question, or faint; just say you're welcome. I want to add in a clause here: This is true unless she says "Thanks a lot" - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all.    DO NOT say "you're welcome" in this case, for that will bring on a "whatever").
 
(8) Whatever: Is a women's way of saying F*cK YOU!

(9) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has asked a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking "What's wrong?" For the woman's response refer to # 3.

The Rim-7 travels about Mach 3.6. That's what I said. A rocket-propelled missile travels at Mach speed.

The projectile Miles pulled out of the sand was the size of a football. There was NO rocket. Thus it was a launched projectile and NOT a missile. Launched projectiles do NOT travel at Mach speeds.


EDIT: I just watched it again and Daniel says "It's a Rocket" when Jack asks him what's that. So it is rocket-propelled. My bad.

I spent six years in the Navy studying missiles. I have a decent grasp on how they travel and how fast.

What exactly are you getting at?

Areas of warped space exhibit unique EM emission patterns (e.g. neutron stars, pulsars, etc.)

If this were a worm-hole that never completely formed (e.g. a funnel), then those trapped within it would experience time at a much slower rate than those outside of the funnel. It would make sense then that there would be only a limited number of paths that could be taken to exit the funnel. Any other course would result in a circular path and you would end up where you started.

From the perspective of general relativity, if the island were time-shifted or exists in an area of space that is warped, the inhabitants of the island would experience time moving much slower than those who were outside the warped area. Not really a bubble, more like an indentation or funnel in that particular area of the space-time continuum. Maybe whatever is causing the funnel-effect is responsible for the special EM properties of the island also??

Most launced rockets travel around 300 feet per second. Self-propelled missiles can travel up to Mach 3 I think. This was too small to be a self-propelled missile methinks. Probably a launched projectile, so 300 feet per second would be the expected speed. Thus it could travel roughly 8400 feet in 28 seconds. A little less than two miles. ???
