Fans of the TV show Lost may find something eerie about last night's winning numbers in the Mega Millions Lottery.  First, you and I didn't hit the six numbers to win 335 million dollars that was a couple of people out west.  But the winning numbers have a tie in to the TV show Lost.

Early in the show, viewers are introduced to a series of six numbers – 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42 – that start turning up everywhere: in inscriptions, as a code that needs to be put in a computer. Viewers eventually learn that they are lottery numbers, the ones that character Hugo “Hurley” Reyes used to win millions, only to suffer a series of spectacular misfortunes.

The winning numbers were 4, 8, 15, 25, 47, 42.  Do you have a method to picking your numbers?  Birthday, ages of family members?  Here are more details on the lost connection.
