Hey guys... great podcast, thanks...

I had a problem with Ben's speech to Sawyer about conning a con man. Basically, I don't really think that the pacemaker thing was a con... it was more of just a lie... I feel like a con has to have more to it, and the person pulling the con has to actually get something out of it. Just because you tell someone something and they believe you does not mean that you are a con artist, you're just a liar. And that's not really that hard to do.

I think you have a point. What they did is not any kind of normal con where the con artist gets money in the end. I would say that what they got was Sawyer being obedient. I would also say that a con can be very simple and unelaborate. They went to some trouble to convince him. I'd say it was more involved than the "necklace" con from "The Long Con", for instance.

Too many "I would say"s. Yuck. Sorry about that. Thanks for listening, by the way.

Wow. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Sometimes I think the LLD is an acquired taste, but, maybe not.

Not to beat a dead horse, but... What did Ben really gain from his "con"? If anything, this would give Sawyer more reason to be disobedient... Now he's angrier and more vengeful, and he already knows that he could take a group of Others (as long as Kate doesn't fuck it up) - If I were Sawyer, I would still try like hell to escape and just wreak havoc from the jugle, guerilla-style, until I could find a means to get back to Lostie Island...

I think the Others are underestimating Sawyer

joe,
Beating dead horses is what the LLD is all about. I think that Ben thinks he earned Sawyer's respect, he said as much. However, I agree, I would just expect this to make Sawyer more angry.

Anon,
I feel like you're implying something...but I don't know what. I never watched kids in the hall. Canadians aren't funny. I prefer Mr. Show with Bob and David for my sketchy laughs.

What I don't understand about The Others is why they feel the need to play these elaborate games with a group of people who crashed on the island through no fault of their own, many of whom died in the crash, and the rest who needed their help. And this idea that they aren't killers? That they're the good guys? Are they kidding? They've done nothing but sabotage, hurt, maim and kill people. And I still believe that Ben murdered the real Henry Gale. They didn't "con" anybody, they have something else going on, and like joe said, I think they've underestimated the resourcefulness and intelligence of people outside their group, like Sawyer and Jack for instance.

I guess I just have a savage antipathy towards them. They will forever be on my shitlist because they started out wrong when they began snatching folks up instead of helping all of the survivors.
