When playing the 'Lost' numbers is not bad luck
9,078 people played Hurley's numbers in the MegaMillions tonight, each winning $150. #THATSSORAVEN
Yes, as "Lost" executive producer Damon Lindelof already noted via Twitter, some Mega Millions hopefuls actually dared to play Hurley's lottery numbers: 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42. And this time, it didn't lead to the deaths of Grandpa Tito or Tricia Tanaka.
In a mind-blowing coincidence that once again proves the world revolves around "Lost" even though it's no longer on television, the winning numbers in the Mega Millions lottery came dangerously close to being those same numbers. In real life, they were 4, 8, 15, 25, 47, with Mega Ball number 42. As Geekosystem explains, anyone who correctly chose three of those numbers -- approximately 25,000 "Lost" nuts, by the blog's count, even more than Lindelof's estimate -- wins $150.
It's not Hugo Reyes money, but it's something. And it's proof that, in fact, the numbers are not so bad after all.
(Thanks to BlogPost's Melissa Bell for making sure we didn't miss this delicious coincidence amidst the Wednesday morning chaos.)
