It’s true. The real Jeremy Bentham is interred in London, in some freaky box, at the Univeristy College London, and is on display for the public. DH insisted that we see it on a trip we took 5 years ago. Yes, in the land of museums, theater, and really bad breakfast food, we travelled halfway across the city to see some really dead and crusty philosopher of utilitarianism. What can I say, that’s what you get for marrying a law geek.
Also, some other points:
Totally bawled when Sun left Jin on that boat. Man, was that sad.
Totally bawled when Desmond kissed Penny. Man, that was steamy and romantic and gave you all kinds of happy feelings that just don’t come that often on Lost.
Totally wondered the whole time, “HOW IS THE BABY EATING? NOBODY HAS BOOBS EQUIPPED TO DO IT!” Seriously, I didn’t see any Gerber labels on that Dharma stuff, so even floating 9 hours on that life raft for the ‘convincing sunburn’ made me cry out–”BUT WHO IS GOING TO FEED THE BABY FOR 9 HOURS?” Perhaps because I was nursing my own baby while watching (yeah, yeah, yeah, she’s almost a year and I’m still nursing–wanna fight?) I was particularly sensitive, and perhaps because my own baby is petite and bald and fair skinned and bears a shocking resemblance to baby Aaron I was particularly sickened when the helicopter went down and all I could picture was the poor child drowning in sea water, and HE didn’t have a life jacket, and, yeah, right, like Kate’s just going to be able to HANG ON TO HIM while crashing into the ocean when the impact was bad enough to almost kill Desmond….(Ok, deep breaths, hugging my baby, moving on…)
Wasn’t the whole point of Charlie’s death was so that Claire could get on a helicopter? Dude, no Claire on any helicopter. What’s up with that?
I figure time has no meaning, so I’m tired of trying to figure out the sequence of events. But since the scene where Ben shows up in the desert he still had the injury he got falling into whatever that weird snowy pit thingie was, I assume he transported there right after he moved the island. But the obviously put him into the future a bit, because Sayid was already married and widowered. (Is that a word?)
And Charlotte–born on the island? Su-weeht. Whose daughter is she? Annie’s? Ben’s? Ben’s AND Annie’s? And how does Miles know that she was born there, huh, huh, hunh? Stupid ghost seeing guy kinda creeps me out.
And what happened to the second set of boat goers who went out with Faraday? Did they reach the freighter and get crispy too, or are they marooned somewhere else?
Poor Locke. I mean, the guy can’t catch a break. How did he get off the island? Why does he want Jack to go back? How did he die, or is he really even dead?
And who in the friendly heck is Jacob?
Gotta say I TOTALLY thought the island brought back that bad guy who looks like he has half a lemon stuck under his gums. I’m glad he just had good body armor.
