As is the case with any career objective, it is imperative that one take certain considerations in mind in order to limit the possibilities for catastrophic outcomes. Joining the U.S. Navy is no different and there are certain prerequisites which must be addressed before such a mammoth task is embarked upon. This piece will therefore introduce the necessaries which are mandatory for any individual hoping to enlist in this prestigious organization. 1) Have a Dream/GoalThe principal thing to do is to ensure that there is a goal in mind. As the adage goes "without a vision, the people perish" and this must be clearly considered before anything else.

This is my tribute video for the 10th Anniversary of LOST - without exception the best TV show & story ever told.
I felt this track (in particular, the lyrics) worked really well with footage from the show. It's as if this song (by Australian artist, Tina Arena) was written for LOST.
The lyrics are a perfect description of the opportunity provided to all who came to the Island.
- Reset All
- Never thought it would be like this
- It all fell down in pieces
- Ripping those puzzles apart
- Surviving on broken hearts
- We were young and we didn't know
- The kaleidoscope lost its colour
- It all turned into grey
- We started moving in separate ways
- I've been holding on
- Just to let go
- Turn a blind eye not sure I wanna know
- Clear the slate, go …

Happy 10th Anniversary LOST. You are still the greatest show in TV history 10 years latter!Read more >
10 years? Has it really been that long? I am of course talking about 10 years since the Lost Pilot first hit television screens and kick started a worldwide phenomenon. It was one of the most explosive TV pilots of all time, quite literally in the case of the opening sequence. At the time it aired, it was the most expensive pilot in TV history, rolling in at around $12 million – but it was worth every penny as 18 million tuned in to watch it. So it really has been 10 years since this incredible show took over our lives, and I’m glad to have been a part of it from the very start. I have a small confession to make though – I wasn’t there from the start...at least not September 22nd, 2004. I am British, and therefore never had the opportunity …Read more >
As the 10th anniversary of LOST is upon us, thought I'd share with everyone this excellent new book about the show, written from the perspective of fans.
By Meg Donhauser, Heather Hersey, Brien Gorham, & Cathy Stutzman
Recapture the magic of television's LOST through the eyes of its devoted fan base. "Losties" from all around the globe recount their favorite moments and discuss the show's themes and mysteries through the lens of their own lives. It's time to go back to the Island once more.
In 2004, ABC aired the premiere episode of LOST, a show that would go on to capture the imaginations of millions of fans for six seasons. Years after its final episode, LOST continues to occupy the hearts and minds of those fans who dubbed themselves "Lost…

I'm working on a fun project that promises to be pretty cool. I'm editing together an abridged version of the Lost storyline in chronological order. Kind of like a really long "Previously on Lost". My question is, can anyone think of an instance of a flashback or flash-forward whoosh sound from an episode that is relatively "clean" – meaning there's no music, dialogue, or other ambient sound effects on it? I want to be able to overlay it on transitions instead of fading out a whoosh sound or ending it abruptly with other noises on it.Read more >
Can anyone tell me why no one on Lost wore shorts? Shannon did but I believe she is the only one. It was hot, they cut the sleeves out of their shirts, but no one wore shorts.
This may not interest anyone but me all the same...........Read more >
I have just finished watching Lost. I know I'm a little late to the party, but would like to say glad I came. This quickly became one of my favorite series I had ever watched. I enjoyed every season, every episode, and every plot twist. It kept my attention and, to me at least, had very few dull moments. I haven't looked around the site much, and REALLY wished I had found this website while watching the show. As I'm sure you can guess, I came here searching for answers after the final credits rolled. Like those one Oceanic 815 I am having issues "moving on". I look forward to going through different theories and thoughts on this site, and talking with those who are still on here.Read more >
Here concludes a trilogy of fantastic episodes that really hyped up the mystery. That slammed their metaphorical hands down on the table in front of them and made sure everybody watching knew this show was going to be a mystery show. In the context of modern television, this was actually a bit of a "risky" move, so to speak. I mean, drama shows as serious storytelling medium were still a young concept in the medium of film. In addition to that, such a mystery show that brought up questions as LOST did had never been done before. It was new to audiences, and seems like it would be something less likely to work, like it should have failed.
But it didn't.
I will say that this episode seems a bit less . . . plot heavy when compared to other e…Read more >
It's been a bit of a hiatus since my last blog post, but I'll go on ahead and jump right in with this one.
This episode continues what I've always personally thought of as a "trio" of episodes that really put LOST on its tracks for the rest of the series. Sure, the show had been fantastic up to this point, but these three episodes (Solitary, Raised by Another, and All the Best Cowboys have Daddy Issues) started putting in new mysteries galore, introduced the constant concept of other people on the Island (save for the french transmission from Pilot, Part II) and, as I explained in my last blog post, really started to give the show "that great LOST feel.
It's interesting to ponder why this is. Perhaps it was that Lindelof and Abrams tried to gi…Read more >

As I'm sure most of you are aware, Lost will officially have been on our screens for 10 years on September 22nd, 2014. I was thinking of a way that we could celebrate on Lostpedia. I know a lot of you will start a rewatch in the coming months, or you may have done already (I'm in the middle of Season 1 now). So here's the deal - I want to see some Lost tribute blogs reflecting on the past 10 years, and I'll stick them on the front page in the news section for all to see. It could be anything really. A review of the latest episode you've just rewatched, a tribute to your favourite episode or moments, the first time you watched the pilot, or indeed any episode (we all had to start somewhere), or just a collection of memories from over the ye…Read more >
I would've liked to see more of Clementine during Season 5/6. I mean, we saw a picture of her in Season 3, then in one episode two seasons later. Sawyer meeting her would've been great, or maybe Sawyer being a father in a flash-sideways. In a flash-sideways, Clementine could've been Juliet and Sawyer's daughter. Just a little thing xRead more >

This episode is always particularly exciting for me. It's this episode, along with the two after it, that really started to make LOST a mystery show. For me, the characters have always been the biggest part of the show, but taking into consideration the common thought that The Island is also a character, one can find the show both character driven and mystery inspired at the same time.
Although mysteries had already been opened up in the show up to this point (the black smoke, polar bear, french transmission, Locke, and Adam and Eve) the show started here to really gain that great LOST feel, if that makes any sense. It introduced so many new mysteries, all of which, I can happily say, were answered in the end, at least to my recollection.
Of …Read more >
I gotta be honest guys, this was one of the lesser episodes for me so far. Season 1 carried itself beautifully up until this point, and although the episode was still good, it failed to measure up to the others before it, in my opinion. However, I have read that Sawyer's letter was originally intended to be a suicide note, and what they came up with, in my opinion, is more interesting.
As for my Flight 815 passenger list, my next thought was to include the ones notable to the fanbase - mainly, the ones who have been given nicknames, as they seem to hold a certain extra importance. To start with -
"Sexy Blue Striped Shirt Girl" - Faith Fay. She was only in two and one half seasons, but her sassy walk and wolf-whistle inducing shirt called…Read more >
Yes, you read correct. Someone on Wikipedia's FA selection panel either has a brilliant sense of humour or has a real soft spot for Nikki and Paulo. I just find it incredible of all the shows characters, they somehow came to the decision that two of the least memorable characters (in TV history?) were worthy of a spot on the front page.
Check it out yourself: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_PageRead more >
I have been using this wiki for about 2 months now while I have been re-watching the show. I can remember the bamboo that Jack woke up in like the back of my hand. It's truly a shame it ended because I always wanted to do an episode recap and summary on a website like this. The one thing that all losties will notice about me is that I have very different opinions to most people which can be complicated or just plane simple (see what I did there) I am going to be expressing my thoughts on lots of LOSTs best unsolvable mysteries. Like What are Walts powers, what did Locke see in the jungle in season 1 and my own personal spin on why there are polar bears.Read more >
My blog writing expertise is not exactly up to par with all the other members of this community so I must ask you, anyone else, what should I talk about?Read more >
It's nice to see that people' have already updated our page for Boeing 737. But the cool professionalism of an article leaves us little room to just let loose and yell, "Whoa, HOW CRAZY IS THIS?"
The latest is that the the plane lost communications and drifted for four hours off-course before meeting its final fate, whatever that was. The flight's manifest has been released, and I have no doubt at all that some particularly keen individuals have taken to memorizing every name on it. And some of the passengers were using fake passports - not because they were terrorists bringing down the flight but because they just happened to be keeping incidental secrets!Read more >
== Love Is the Essence of Creation--Hassanelagouz (talk) 15:00, March 13, 2014 (UTC)
The Pride of Humanity was a man of love and affection. One of his names was Habibullah (the Beloved of God). In addition to meaning one who loves, habib means one who is loved, one who loves God, and one who is loved by God. Sufi masters like Imam Rabbani, Mawlana Khalid, and Shah Waliyyullah state that love is the ultimate station of the spiritual journey.
God created the universe as a manifestation of His love for His creatures, in particular humanity, and Islam became the fabric woven out of this love. In the words of Bediüzzaman, love is the essence of creation. Just as a mother's love and compassion compels her to allow a surgeon to operate on h…Read more >
So then. I know my last blog post was . . . not that long ago, but I'm actually really excited to start this one. This was a highly uplifting episode for Charlie's character development. I mean, for a show centered around character development, especially so at this point, it was great.
Although not quite at the same level of awesome in my mind as some of the earlier episodes, it was still great nonetheless, especially for Charlie's awesome emergence from the caves with Jack.
Now, to resume with my selection of the "Ideal Cast." One thing to add is that his only deals with survivors of the Middle-section, as the Cockpit only entailed Seth Norris, and the Tail-Section survivors remained consistent in the one episode they were in.
I establi…Read more >
Alright alright alright! Hey everybody!
House of the Rising Sun . . . man, this continues in the string of Season 1 greats. The "what the hell?!" moment of Jin attacking Michael, seeing the relationship of Sun and Jin unfold (complete with the added bonus of a heartwarming love gone bad), and finally seeing Sun deciding to stay with Jin all made this one great. That last scene at the Sydney airport still gets to me, and, particularly, finding out Sun's speaks English . . . it was all great.
I'm going to start a personal project on here - figuring out the most logical cast of Oceanic 815 survivors. We already know a good many of them, our Jack's and our Locke's, but what about the background extras?
LOST originally started out with 33 backg…Read more >
Hey! I know it's been a little while, but I'm still here, so I'll keep on.
This episode, although not quite comparable to the preceding Walkabout, was still excellent. After all, it heightened the mystery with Christian Shephard and the discovery of the caves, introduced the first bits of interaction between Jack and Locke, gave us the Life and Death theme (which is beautiful) and also gave us the penultimate LOST catchphrase - "Live Together, Die Alone." What's not to love?
I'll admit that I gush, but the scene in which Jack tore open the coffin . . . and there was no body, was great. It was shocking, and his reaction seemed so wonderfully natural.
In my own personal LOST life, I've been embarking on a new journey that entails a bit of mod…Read more >
It is one of Lost's most asked questions, and the one it seems so few know the answer to.
It became a topic on social media in 2012 with Damon Lindelof attempting to 'bribe' US Presidential candidate, Mitt Romney with the answer if he discloses his tax return figures. Lindelof even teased us more recently at the Paleyfest LOST 10 Year Reunion in March 2014, refusing to give a specific answer;
Well, if you're reading this, you won't have to wait till then as the answer is on this page. I've long been a proponent of the notion that most every question on LOST was answered. There are very few truly unanswered questions. It is true that some answers require some research, or extrapolation/interpretation from a number of sources, but the vast majo…

What I would like to know is whether Will & Elizabeth will be in Pirates of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Lies. If you have any info on whether they will be, please leave a comment. I don't want people putting up unnecessary comments on this though. You can also put on your ideas for how they could fit them both into the story again. Maybe Will is sick of being away from Elizabeth for so long, so he seeks Jack for help. Don't put something like "Will and Elizabeth's story finished in 'At World's End', because you never know, they might come back into it!Read more >
ONE Direction (abreviado frecuentemente como 1D) es una boy band británica-irlandesa formada en 2010 en Londres, Reino Unido, con motivo del programa The X Factor. Durante la transmisión del concurso, el quinteto, compuesto por Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan y Louis Tomlinson, fue apadrinado por Simon Cowell, creador del programa y encargado en esa temporada de la categoría de grupos. Su formación se dio luego de que los cinco integrantes hicieran sus audiciones y fueran expulsados de la competencia. Tras esto, Nicole Scherzinger, una de las juezas, sugirió que los cinco formasen parte de un grupo, al que finalmente llamaron One Direction.1 El grupo finalmente quedó en el tercer lugar del concurso, pero aun así Cowell pa…Read more >
This episode, let me just say, is by far one of the best episodes of the series, possibly the best I've seen (I'm now about a third of the way through Season 6). It is just so well done on so many levels. The plot is great, the dialogue is well-written, the actors dynamic.
Most of all, though, is that ending scene. The moment when the audience realizes Locke is in a wheelchair, only to then walk again after the crash, is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen in film, and has brought tears to my eyes on more than one occasion. The music makes the moment heavenly.
Enough about that phenomenal episode, though (which I even have a copy of the Screenplay of!). As the holiday season draws closer, the question of solidari…Read more >
Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!
One of the things I'm thankful for is definitely LOST. Although it takes up countless hours of my life, displaced Star Wars as my favorite series, takes money as well as time, and generally has become a huge obsession of mine, I still love it.
Take, for example, my current efforts to compile a complete and accurate list of all the surviving passengers of Flight 815. I've managed to narrow it all down quite a bit, with only 3 survivors from the Mid-Section unaccounted for. I'm doing it by name, not appearance. If somebody showed up by name, they're put in there. There's so many extras, as we all know, that doing it by appearance would create an enormous list.
Anyways, that's good for tonight. I've got to ge…Read more >
A new weekend. New night. And a new blog post.
A quick note, the entirety of the Pilot episode, I absolutely love. Especially the crash sequence, which was just so very well done. The score of the Genius Giacchino, the cinematography work of Abrams, and the writing of Lindelof and Cuse, along with the work of the rest of the crew and performance of the cast made this episode genius.
Anyways, I've never really done this before, made a blog. So, I hope you enjoy this one! Until then . . .

Open on an eye. It is that of Master Tej, a new editor to the LOST Wiki.
He looks to the side. A classroom wall is there - it's Third Block in Senior Capstone of his Senior year.
Stretching upwards, he pulls an object out of his pocket and looks at it. A flashdrive. Putting it away, he checks his side before grimacing.
The bell rings. Running out of the classroom, past people, around others, he finally emerges in a Band Room. In a moment, the sounds of screaming and a jet engine become evident.
Well, okay, I wish something as cool as that could happen to me. But I'm not Jack. And Senior Year is far from a plane crash.

Hai Guys, yesterday I made the countdown timer hieroglyphs from the Swan. Egyptian symbols(written language basically) has always been very interesting to me. I love how lost incorporates the idea of the Egyptians being at the lost island, it gives it more of a history than it already has and also left us with a bigger mystery of the Lost Island. I have just re-watched the episode where Ben Linus, (Pretending to be Henry Gale) is captured by Daniel Rousseau and brought to the Swan, here Sayid interrogates Ben(Ep. "One of Them"). Well, as you all know Jack doesn't take kindly to that and demands that Locke(John) open the door to the gun vault, as this moment Locke is left with little time and the timer goes out of time. The exciting moment …Read more >
It only ends once... Three years ago today, Jack Shephard closed his eyes for the very last time in what I think was the most perfect finale in television history.
So to the writers, actors, producers, musicians and crew that made this extraordinary masterpiece possible, I am forever in your debt. But to the LOST community who I would be lost without, thank you for making my ongoing journey even more meaningful by keeping the Lost flame alive.
One of (the many) great things about living in Australia is that when the big Lost dates come round, they last two days. Like right now - it's been May 23 for almost 40 hours. It's actually the 24th here but still feels like yesterday because the US is just experiencing the evening of the 23rd.

Beautiful. Emotional. Mysterious. Spectacular. Brilliant.
Lost is science-fiction, comedy, tragedy and deep characterisation on an unprecedented scale - a grand adventure story unlike any epic ever portrayed on the small screen.
In fact, Lost is the perfect collision between the intellectual world, and the world of pop culture. Unlike most other shows, it appears to have no ceiling to its understanding, at least not that I can see. I am still trying to understand its meaning. Not of its storyline, but rather, its effect on popular culture, science fiction, literature, philosophy, history and even physics. But it's the unique personal journey I find myself on as a consequence of those 121 episodes that fascinates me most.

We as fans of the ABC show "LOST" would love to have a place of our own at WDW. There are places for Star Wars fans, Pirates Fans, Sports fans, Fairytale Fans and soon Avatar fans. We as Lost Fans are millions strong all over the world and as "LOST" is a Disney product you will not have any issues with copy writes. Discovery Island hasn’t been used and is just over grown much like the set of LOST so with just a few minor clean ups this would add a new dynamic to an old exhibit. Disney could do LOST weekend much like Star Wars Weekends. With the 10 year anniversary of the pilot episode coming up in 2014 this would a great time to start a rethinking of Discovery Island to the LOST Island.
