True... but interesting that the domain name appears on thehansofoundation.com site, which is registered to ABC.

I think that the HTTPS is some type of redirect not really ABC's website of http:\\thehansofoundation.org

Nope, it's being served up by the same server as http://www.thehansofoundation.org

I tried https://bigspaceship1.com/ too, just fer giggles, but you end up at what looks to be the admin login for the virtual host hosting the site.


It also plays "Here comes Peter Cottontail."

From my understanding http://bigspaceship1.com is not directly connected to LOST and has been in operation for sometime. The messages about the rodent revolution have been broadcast with morse code over radio airwaves for quite sometime. Most likely this is just the producer and webmasters taking advantage of a crazy website (artsite?) to misdirect and confuse.

EDIT: Website is new. And a hoax. Or a least a misdirect.

http://p073.ezboard.com/flosttheuno...I D=4566.topic

The Rodent Revolution messages are old.

http://www.spynumbers.com/WBNY.html

EDIT: And apparently it changes every 108 minutes.

The record for bigspaceship1.com listed the domain as being created 10-7-05.

But I agree, I don't think it actually ties in to the show.

An upcoming spoiler from the LOST forum and imdb:

Spoiler Alert! (highlight to read)
Apparently according to casting news (and they have been wrong before), Kelvin, Desmonds old and thought dead partner will be played by the same guy who was the bearded boat captain in the season one finale.

If you pretend for a second that Desmond was saying "Calvin" and not "Kelvin," you can get some interesting anagrams from Marvin Candle:

Calvin end arm (prosthetic arm, hmm)
Calvin darn em
Calvin red man

If you change the spelling to "Celvin" you can get:

Celvin and arm

Another interesting one:

Narc Man Devil

Also, this may happen with any flight number, but ALL of these flight numbers have been involved in fatal crashes, except for 510, which has had two crashes where everyone survived.



Is the little message on flight 572 new? Cant believe I would have missed that earlier.

All of the airport codes are real ones, except for the 'arrival' for flight 671-- good little gag there...

Bigspaceship1 now has polar bears. No audio.
The Morse code is also different.

The Morse code is also different.

It says: sometimes a polar pear is just a polar bear

And yes, it says "pear," not "bear."

Any guesses about the red circle that briefly appears when the bears intersect? I did a screen shot and zoomed in, but I can't make anything out.
