Briefly: This is a pretty tasty little story. One of the most famous fictional lottery number sets — the numbers played by Hurley (Jorge Garcia) on Lost — have netted multiple winners $150 each in the Mega Millions jackpot that was drawn last night. Hurley’s numbers were 4-8-15-16-23-42 while last night’s winning draw was 4-8-15-25-47-42. Many people evidently played Hurley’s numbers, and the four correct digits were enough to win $150. That’ll pay for most of a full series Blu-ray set on Amazon and will hopefully not lead to all the weird supernatural goings-on that left Hurley wishing he’d never taken home millions in the first place.
