Obviously, my Mega Millions numbers didn't come up.
If they had, I wouldn't be sitting at my desk typing. I'd be out test driving a Bugatti Veyron.
Two gamblers, one in Idaho and the other in Washington state, are going to split the $380 million prize.
For folks who aren't fans of the television show -- and yes, I use the present tense as we Losties are still dissecting and discussing it -- series favorite Hugo "Hurley" Reyes won a ginormous lottery jackpot by playing 4, 8, 15,16, 23 and 42.
Last night's Mega Millions winning numbers were 4, 8, 15, 25, 47 and 42.
The Lost numbers have been regulars on every such worldwide game of chance ever since their lottery connection was revealed on the ABC program.
The digits' continuing popularity even caught the attention of one of the series' creators Damon Lindelof, who tweeted "9,078 people played Hurley's numbers in the Mega Millions tonight, each winning $150."
I hope all the winners, both of the big bucks and smaller amounts, remember that their winnings are taxable income!
- Bet on it, gambling winnings are taxable
- Lottery winnings, charitable donations and the tax collector
- Online gambling bill gets initial OK
- Online gambling restrictions in effect
- Taking a chance
- Super Bowl bets mean IRS losses
- Tax office workers win lottery millions
