Hidden clue to Lost's timeline? -- UPDATE

It turns out the date on the x-ray MRI in Jack's flashback was just an oversight by the production folks on Lost. A fan site caught the date during last week's show and we all wondered if it was a hint about when Lost happens, or just a mistake. Turns out it was just a mistake. Javier Grillo-Marxuach, writer and supervising producer for Lost, confirms the glitch over at The Fuselage. No fun!

Hidden clue to Lost's timeline?

What does this mean? During last week's episode, Hunting Party, one of Jack's flashbacks shows him looking at an X-ray of his patient's back. The date on that X-ray: November 16, 2005. Huh??? The detail-oriented folks over at Lost-Media caught the date, which can only been seen if you have HDTV.

Was this an oversight on the part of the directors? It's entirely possible that the x-ray was made in November for a January airing. But, nothing ever seems accidental on Lost. We don't actually know when Lost happens and this X-ray suggests that it's in the future. How far into the future? Well, far enough for Jack to get himself quite a collection of tattoos.

Thoughts?
