As the "Lost" character Hugo "Hurley" Reyes would say, "Dude..."

The winning numbers in last night's $380 million Mega Millions jackpot - which had two winners in Idaho and Washington state - are strikingly similar to the recurring sequence of numbers that was central to the mysterious storyline of ABC's "Lost", including the winning sequence that made Hurley a rich man (see above video clip).

Last night's (real) winning numbers were:

4, 8, 15, 25 and 47, with the "Mega ball" 42

The "Lost" numbers:

4, 8, 15, 16, 23, with the "Mega number" 42

That's a match on four out of the six numbers, including the "Mega" digit.
