Tonka truck = kid toy. Like the teddy bear. I think that was one of the most interesting things about this episode, the presence of that old rusty Tonka truck in the polar bear's cave (next to a Pearl-logo-wearing pile of bones!) --Brother 19:44, 18 October 2006 (PDT)

Man, I wanna know who deleted my article on Tonka Toy Truck.--LOST ON CRAPHOLE ISLAND!!!!!
oh god, i have to stay away from LP til tomorrow. anyway, this article need renaming as per convention, i believe. --kaini. 20:31, 18 October 2006 (PDT)
I actually think it's correct - polar bear is not a proper noun, so no caps except the first word. Right? --Jajasoon 20:49, 18 October 2006 (PDT)
Yes, it should stay as it is. --   Jabberwock    talk    contribs    email   - 20:54, 18 October 2006 (PDT)

Contents of the Cave

Correct me if I'm wrong (which I might be, since I haven't gone back and watched Further Instructions since last night), but IIRC the can of hairspray wasn't part of the contents of the cave. Locke brought it with him from the beach.

You are correct. Locke brought it with him in his backpack - along with the torch-making supplies. On the other hand, this article is describing the current contents of the cave (which now include a partially used hairspray can). --Snarf 10:09, 19 October 2006 (PDT)
That's not how it was worded. Do we really need to keep track like that? It's not like we're running a ZORK server. --Doc 10:11, 19 October 2006 (PDT)


I removed a section mentioning the bones of a child/infant (see below). No matter how long I stare at the high-rez screencap, I don't see anything of the sort.

** At least one is an infant. (look at the bottom right of the frame-capture, there is a tiny foot bone-structure)

Agreed--ASEO 07:15, 20 October 2006 (PDT)

  • I have to say this about the bones, about all the bones we've seen so far. If there is a time anomaly, and time is slower or faster on the island than the real world, then perhaps all the bones we've encountered so far are bones of the Losties. They are encountering their own remains.

The cave bones w/the dog and the infant. Adam and Eve. They fit abstractly the demographics of certain cliques of Losties. Maybe history repeats itself and these are also coincidences. It doesn't explain the Black Rock bones.

I mean, I hope the writers have something more original and outstanding than that, but I had to put the theory out there, even if it rubs my own bones the wrong way. --Brother 11:26, 20 October 2006 (PDT)

The animal skull looks more like a cow[1] than a dog[2]. --Doc 13:09, 20 October 2006 (PDT)
Oh, and I still don't see any infant/child bones. --Doc 13:10, 20 October 2006 (PDT)
Oh me either, but other members do...and other members still think they're in purgatory. Either way, a theory's a theory even if it's theorized by someone who doesn't buy it. I AM intrigued by the truck and bones, though . . . --Brother 21:32, 20 October 2006 (PDT)
as long as it complies with LP:TP. --kaini. 21:34, 20 October 2006 (PDT)

The article says "Pig bones are present: shoulder blade and a skull.". Was this put by someone with knowledge because pigs don't make sense on the island. Boars are similar to pigs but I'm not an expert. Since it's in the article section it should be fact and not theory.--EvilSmoke 18:46, 19 November 2006 (PST)
