Apologize if this is a repost. I just saw it on scifi wire and it's the first I've heard of it. Didn't see anything here when I did a search. Apparently it's legit...

Sure it was. The producers of LOST would never tease the fans like that.

Here's the scifiwire story (http://www.scifi.com/scifiwire/index.php?category=0&id=38050) where I read about it:Lost Secrets Revealed Online

Fans of ABC's hit SF series Lost who played this summer's alternate-reality game The Lost Experience got a big payoff if they stuck with it: the secret to Hurley's numbers (4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42) and revelations about the Dharma Initiative and the Hanso Foundation. The answers, which were reported by TV Guide, can be found in a video detailing the elaborate backstory to the show, which has been posted in its entirety on YouTube.com.

The numbers represent the Valenzetti Equation, a mathematical formula having to do with the timetable for humanity's extinction. The show's sinister Dharma Initiative was an effort by the mysterious Hanso Foundation to ward off that inevitability. When Dharma failed, Hanso's nefarious acting leader, Thomas Mittelwerk, set in motion a plan to release a virus that would kill 30 percent of the world's population.

Details of the game's various threads can be found on the Lost Experience blog (http://www.thelostexperience.com/2006/09/glyphs_and_codes.php#more).

"Wait, you mean our erratic placement of repeat episodes and slowly developing storylines are pissing people off?....and they no longer give a $3it?...

Quick! Throw something out there! Remind them about the show and give them some revelation! QUICKLY!"

So it's "Lord of the Flies" meets "Childhood's End."

:hmmm:

With a touch of Verne's "Mysterious Island" and Hilton's "Lost Horizon".

I'm not touching that one either, not with a 10 foot Pole.

Or a 5 foot Chinese....
