on the season 5 extras dvd 'mysteries of the universe: the dharma initiative' i seem to recall a part where a food drop unintentionally landed on another island.
well anyway the church where the lamp post was, and presumably everything dharma had (eg. submarine) from when hanso & co. ran the show, was purchased by eloise hawking after the purge and whatever else.
so doesn't this suggest that she was responsible for organising the food drop, which i dare say may have also been aranged by ben when he 'civilised' the others?
does this have anything to do with the lingering food drop question or am i completely off topic?
my suggestion of course being that the others stole dharma's food drop idea after the purge.
or was this already obvious?
