Is there a way to select multiple ranges or lists of files in the Finder in Mac OS X?

Is there a way to select multiple ranges or lists of files in the Finder in Mac OS X?

In Windows, if I had a list of items numbered 1 through 20, I could select items 1-5 and 15-20 by pressing ctrl-shift, clicking 1, clicking 5, holding ctrl but releasing shift, clicking 15, re-pressing shift, and clicking 20. (At least I think I have that sequence right--it's been so long I'm not sure.)

"To select like this:

Do the following:

Select item 3
While holding shift, select item 5
Release shift and while holding cmd select item 8
Release cmd and while holding shift again select item 11

You will have 3 to 5 and 8 to 11 selected."
