THEYT PROBABLY OUGHT TO STAY OFF PLANES FOR AWHILE:
Thank you, Hurley! 'Lost' numbers pay off as winning Mega Millions numbers (Melissa Maerz, January 5, 2011, LA Times)
Maybe Hurley's not so unlucky after all. During Tuesday night's lotto drawing, more than 26,000 people won $150 each simply by playing the lucky Mega Millions numbers that Hugo "Hurley" Reyes used to win the $114-million jackpot on "Lost." Interestingly, winning the lottery brought Hugo bad luck on the show.Posted by Orrin Judd at January 5, 2011 3:53 PM
Four of the six numbers selected in the real-life $355-million lottery matched Hurley's picks. The winning Mega Millions numbers were 4, 8, 15, 25, 47 and 42. Hurley's winning numbers were 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42.
