Lost and the Irish Lottery.

A recent Lost episode featured a set of six numbers (1-49) which had a mysterious curse. In a perverse coincidence the Irish Lottery on November the 19th (I am a little late with this) featured the exact same 6 numbers - with the exception of 42, and the number which replaced 42? 24. How very strange. According to Roberdin in the comments section of Sci-Fi Heaven, the chances of this happening are "about 1 in 14,000,000", "although, if you allow for the odd digit reversal, things become more complicated". "However, it’s not going to be anything much better than about 1 in 7,000,000."
