Kirstin Says: Is It Worth Winning $150 In The Mega Millions Lottery If The Numbers Are Cursed?

On Lost, Hurley won the lottery and was cursed for life because of it — call me superstitious, but I wouldn’t choose those numbers even if it DID make me $150 richer!

I can’t believe how many people played Hurley’s lottery numbers from Lost in the Mega Millions lottery this week and won! A whopping 26,000 Lost die-hards picked Hurley’s (un)lucky digits — 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, and 42 — and made $150 each. (The winning numbers were 4, 8, 15, 25, 47 and 42.) Sure, that’s pretty darn exciting…IF you feel like having bad luck for the rest of your life!

Obviously, I know I’m being ridiculous. Surely 26,000 people won’t be cursed because they used arbitrary numbers picked by J.J. Abrams for a plot in a television drama. That said, watching Hugo Reyes struggle for six seasons both on the island and off is enough for me to never risk getting personally involved with those digits.

I think it is also entertaining how Jorge Garcia, the actor who played Hugo, has been getting hounded by media since the big lottery reveal Jan. 4.

“A tabloid news show just showed up at our FRONT DOOR hoping to get an intvw with Jorge about last night’s lotto #s,” his girlfriend said on Twitter. “Is this really our life?”

I bet Jorge’s asking himself that too. Plus, I bet he didn’t dare mess with the lottery…he fears the wrath of the Lost curse.
