As convoluted as this show may be, what were we able to glean from it.

We learned that Polar Bears can survive in tropical weather
We learned that Hobits can not sing worth a darn
We learned that the best thing to do in an emergency situation is to run around aimlessly in a circle

I learned that only handsome men and pretty women fly in commercial jets..... or at the very least, only the pretty survive plane crashes.

Never EVER stick your head out of a window when you hear a huge monster outside. You will get eaten and then spat out. :o

I learned never trust public pool lifeguards to perform CPR. Unless of course my stomach needs air.

Oh and backgammon is totally gay and stupid.

And I really wanna visit the tiny island of Puka Puka! Yay Kevin!

I learned that if you fly first class, apparently you go straight to hell.  Which, y'know, is a hard argument to beat. ;)

I also learned that it's okay to eat a case of hot pockets, but if someone offers you seafood, you should immediately reject it.  Even if you are starving.

I learned that the Lost producers need to take viewer suggestions.  The Lost DVDs really could use a "mute all blonde women when they're talking" button. :)

I learned that it's damned easy to pick on the fat guy.  And yet also eventually completely redundant.

I also learned that the guys seemed to have been having some severe bowel problems, so much so it seemed like it was all they could talk about.

Besides that great rhyme they had about when to scream and shout...hmmm....I guess I didn't learn it --I can't remember how it goes now.

dang.

I learned that some islands are just full of off-camera monsters and polar bears.

I learned that Gilligan and co. were far better at survival than all the PHD/Career Military/Crazy people that were stranded in this series. Gilligan had a full shelter and steady source of food going by the end of the first episode, and they packed everything else they needed-- full wardrobes and necessary electronic equipment-- and THEY were only going on a 3 hour tour. That's because they were PREPARED.

You forgot to mention that they also had a professor that knew how to build literally anything out of coconuts except a raft.

I learned that adrenaline and other endorphines involved in the fight-or-flight response to danger or pressure are swayed by the words "One, two, three, four, five." Fascinating stuff.  :P

I watched Top Gun followed by the Lost pilot and then got on a plane in the morning to fly to Des Moines.  Whee....

(And ironically Logan Airport was playing the Top Gun soundtrack as I was going through security.  It was all I could do to not break out into "Take my breath awayayayay...." in a sobbing voice.  I'm sure that would've resulted in me getting hauled off and strip searched.)

I learned that Lost's 5th season finale makes a ton of references to the Pilot that I never noticed .......... oh yeah and ...........Remember folks, when in danger or in doubt, run around in circles scream and shout.
