As a LOST fan, I was totally geeking out during the moment where Daniel and Rush were having a discussion about the solution to the formula in Rush's math room. Rush Realizes that 46 keeps popping up in his vision, and Daniel remarks that the "Answer to everything is actually 42." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phrases_from_The_Hitchhiker%27s_Guide_to_the_Galaxy#Answer_to_the_Ultimate_Quest ion_of_Life.2C_the_Universe.2C_and_Everything_.2842.29) from Hitchhiker's Guide. Then he notes that 46 divided by 2 is 23, referencing the 23 Enigma (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/23_Enigma). That's two LOST numbers in one scene. Probably not intentional on the writer's part, but I still thought it was awesome. :cool:

[Edit] Make that 3 LOST numbers.

Rush: "The address of this house is number 4, not 46."

Well, for some more numbers:
46 - 42 = 4
46 * 2 + 16 = 108

Madison’s Little Moment of Win
from It Made My Day by chwazymoto (http://itmademyday.com/2010/05/03/funny-win-stories-madison-2/)

A couple of days ago when my math teacher asked, "Any questions?" I asked, "What is the meaning of life." She said the meaning of life is math. Today we realized that M is the 13th letter of the alphabet, A is the 1st, T is the 20th, and H is the 8th. 13 + 1 + 20 + 8 = 42. IMMD
