A question about Hurley handing out the food...
The ABC site recap says: "Hurley comes up with a solution that satisfies everyone - there's plenty of food to last for a while, so why not be generous and hand some of it out now, just as he did with his lottery winnings."
I thought Hurley said something to the effect of there was 'enough food for one person to have three meals a day for three months', and that was an indication that the food supply wouldn't last long so why have people fight over rationing it and just go ahead and have a feast with it?
Did I hear that conversation wrong? Because at the time I was thinking, wow, Desmond would've had to have known his food supply was getting very low, if only three months worth left, and thus be very excited to see a replacement show up to bring more supplies.

Oh, and anyone reading that journal on the ABC site? Kinda of lame, I think. Supposedly one survivor has found the journal that some other survivor had been keeping, but doesn't know who it belongs to (even though her name and where she's from is written on it) and the person writing in the journal now mentions several times having read the entire journal, yet the latest entry now mentions being fascinated at the news that there's a hatch buried in the ground a few hours from camp, as if this person was hearing it for the first time, even though the original author of the journal has mentioned seeing the hatch more than once! (I didn't realize the hatch was 'a few hours hike' away from camp)
Although the author does mention that Hurley handed out some 'unfamiliar' and 'odd' food items that made his/her stomach turn....
