It's quite strange really, we've had a bit of a break from the series and now we're back with it, and it's got me think over a few things. First off we all know there are polar bears on the island, which in itself is wierd, but this got me thinking over the cliffhanger from Series 2, where Penny's Portugese guys were checking for any signs of EM activity... in a very snowy area like the Antartic or something like that, now if people have assumed that the island is between Australia and Hawaii, that makes it somewhere between the Tropic of Capricorn and the equator or there abouts, although the Pilot said before he was humped by the smog-monster that they were hundreds of miles off course (note: not thousands)... I stoke my chin to think why the Portugese folk were in an icy-area... that with the polar bears (which are northern hemisphere) I double stroke my chin
As for the current events, this is where it might get confusing, temporal science does, if desmond can see the future and tell that he's trying to stop Charlie from getting killed, how far into the future does his seeing go to able to tell that he's trying to do that and not do something else and that Charlie is not who he is there trying to protect, becuase is he only saying that after what the woman said to him about the man in the red shoes and if so how he can trust the word of the woman, and trust that she knows that far into the future to be able to tell Desmond that he won't achieve anything and that his greatest achievement was pressing that button for long, or is she saying these things to inspire Desmond to prove her wrong or to achieve what is supposed to happen and that pressing the button was in fact small fry compared to what he's actually going to achieve.
If that didn't make sense, I don't blame you I got confused writing it.
