The latest issue of Wired magazine is probably the best I've ever read, exclusively devoted to puzzles and mysteries. I highly recommend it.
Inside there's a Lost puzzle, a double page spread of numbers that are clearly a code (see above). I did a quick search on Google and couldn't find anyone else even talking about it, let alone having solved it, so in desperation, I'm throwing it out to the Loyal 77. We used to be big fans of Lost here, and this is intriguing me.
I'm not a huge codebreaker, but can get my head around most mathematical problems. I'm hoping it's some kind of alphabet substitution code, and if we crack it, it might actually give a bit more insight into the Lottery ticket numbers.
I am thinking the clue could be the instances where there are double letters, like the "7 7" and the "18 18". If we assumed the easiest solution - that each line is a word, then that would mean the third word starts with two letters that are the same, but the only one I can think of is aardvark, and clearly that doesn't fit.
I guess the words could also be scrambled, like anagrams, but that seems like it would be very hard to solve. I seem to remember that in those cases, you look for the letter frequency, and assign numbers to letters based on frequency. This seems promising as there are 52 numbers but 26 different numbers. The problem here is there are four different numbers with a frequency of 4 (1, 5, 6, 18) so which one gets E, the highest frequency letter in the alphabet? Randomly assigning letters based on frequency gave me "SEHGRA PLOODM NNTOHNTA BFCUER WKOXMQ JTALDU VCAYIHT IEZISES" which is clearly... nonsense.
I still think think the third word is the key - it's an eight letter word with that contains 3 letters and 2 letters the same, and there can't be that many of those, can there? Unless it's a plural word, and it has an s on the end.
