Lost And Not Found

Today marks the 70th anniversary of the disappearance of Amelia Earhart. She and her navigator, Fred Noonan, were trying to fly around the world when their twin engine vanished somewhere over the South Pacific. Their fate has long fascinated the world and has been the subject of much speculation, ranging from alien abductions to being captured by the Japanese.

My personal theory? Well, Earhart's a woman, so she landed the plane to ask for directions and was eaten by cannibals. That's why you never see us men stopping for directions: We don't want to get eaten by pygmies.

On the other hand, don't be surprised if Earhart and Noonan show up on next season's Lost. In fact, it will probably turn out that The Others are their descendants.

And if you think such an outrageous plot development would be absolutely preposterous and totally beyond belief, you obviously haven't been watching the show.
