>4. They are prepared to quickly gather specific (yet unknown) information on >any new "visitors" to the island.

Thinking about it...the fact they have some connection to the outside world, to conduct research on survivors and their past entirely possible. Look at the tragedy of TWA Flight 800. By surfing the web you can find detailed information on the passengers. I assume it's similar with the Oceanic flight. A lot of information, memorial pages, articles, on the passengers, especially the Americans. Still curious about "how" they gather the information so quickly.

Well, if they had access to the net, and all of this info was there (specifically suppplied to the others), it doesn't take long...I think the info is there. I think it's been there for a while because it's actually some years/months after the crash, somehow...the recording of the Red Socks is old news to the others IMO (I have nothing to back this up) my own topic, I know! :P

Episode 3x02 / Others FACTS

I have been trying to make a list of the UNDISPUTED KNOWN FACTS about the Others as of this week to try and figure them out, so far I have....

1. They live on an isolated island in a well maintained village with at least some modern conveniences.

2. They speak with American accents.

3. They have the ability to view (recently?) recorded U.S.A. television.

4. They are prepared to quickly gather specific (yet unknown) information on any new "visitors" to the island.

5. They abduct specific people based on re-con, especially children, for unknown reasons.

6. They use costumes to appear less civilized than then really are to outsiders.

7. They have a hierarchy of sorts with Ben in some position of power.

8. They have an abundant food and source and fresh water.

9. They have access to at least some of the DHARMA stations & supplies.

10. They traded their (only?) boat and 2 prisoners for Jack, Sawyer and Kate.

11. They are relatively few in numbers (25 to 50 people?).

12. They have guns & other weapons.

13. They have an agenda.

...anyone care to add?

I'm pretty sure that the Others were dry when they boarded the sailboat, so they didn't swim or wade in like I first thought.

I got it!!!  They silently parachuted onto the pier after being lauched from "Othertown" by super-accurate catapults (made from palm trees of course)!!! :D

he's not eating...lack of food and/or water could be why Jack seems out of it...

Check out this page for all of the details on the monitoring screens and what is on them...pretty good stuff!;sa=view;id=193

The shots from the monitors on the top left and right that show trees are from the scene where Sayid and jin are waiting by the boat, and the scene from the season two premiere where walt is standing in the woods dripping wet. Pictures to compare:

P.S. Not my doing...just linked it! credit to Grumpy!!!

So what are the chances that Sawyer didn't get a good look at a shock gun at some time during the day? He isn't the sort to miss those kinds of details when his own life is on the line, let alone Freckles'.

I took my kids to a museum last weekend and my oldest asked "can't we see all this stuff on TV?"...struck me as funny and true...

Episode 3x02 / Shock (stun) Guns

It was strange that Sawyer couldn't use the shock gun...I was thinking that maybe they don't have a "safety" switch and MAYBE the Others power them with their bodies or something...

Just a throwin' out there...any thoughts???
