"Naumoff is working temporarily at... "

I *hope* they are investigating this guy's recent spending habits.
2002-04-16 04:46:09 PM  
Woot! Boobies! (j/k, im sure this will be moved 12 hours back now... lol! Couldn't resist)
Seriously, what a dumbass. It makes ya wonder how he got through highschool, much less became a doctor. I don't think I would want him operating on me though...

"Whaddaya mean, you lost my LUNGS?!?! FIND THEM!!"
2002-04-16 04:46:52 PM  
Dumbass is right!

This precious Roy

This Guys A SUCKER!

Buy my Lice Monkeys!
2002-04-16 04:47:58 PM  
Ha, Marion, IN. The money's probably already been spent on crack or crystal meth.
2002-04-16 04:48:23 PM  
What is with the "dumbass" tag?
2002-04-16 04:48:23 PM  
2002-04-16 04:48:23 PM  
of all places ... walmart ... the 24 hour super-walmart near where i live is freakin' shady... all the old people and whatnot.
2002-04-16 04:48:23 PM  
Yeah, right next to the Holy Grail and Ms. Spears' virginity...
2002-04-16 04:48:48 PM  
did he have to file that on his taxes?
2002-04-16 04:48:48 PM  
the tagline made me angry enough, I can't even read the article
2002-04-16 04:48:48 PM  
well, wal-mart gets all kinds....
2002-04-16 04:48:48 PM  
42 gees, in a Walmart?

Darwin candidate.

Move along.
2002-04-16 04:49:37 PM  
OMFG! These circumstances are just too strange. Methinks insurance scam.
2002-04-16 04:49:55 PM  
"In addition to cash, the backpack contained airline tickets, a cell phone, prescription medication and a passport, Naumoff said."

Mr. Naumoff is throwing a party for some VERY lucky Wally World shoppers
2002-04-16 04:49:55 PM  
The best medical equipment is at Walmart, and at the right price.
2002-04-16 04:49:55 PM  
Why can't I ever find something like this. Of course I'd turn it in to lost and found (wink, wink). Hell, I'd walk off the job and head to a bar!
2002-04-16 04:50:29 PM  
Uh ...anyone seen a backpack with a lot of money in it?
No? OK I'll check back next week, maybe you'll have it then.....

What a stupid ass
2002-04-16 04:50:56 PM  
It was kind of dumb for him to wait a week but why shouldn't he expect it to show up in the lost and found? I'd have turned it in without ever opening the pack. OTOH, it may have been turned in and the pimply faced kid (or well paid manager) looked in the bag for ID and suddenly had images of Tahiti or a brand new car pop into mind.
2002-04-16 04:50:56 PM  
"Hello, hello? , Excuse me sonny? has my backpack with my associate's 42 grand show up? no? well thanks, i'll try again tomorrow..."

2002-04-16 04:51:30 PM  
"Naumoff is working temporarily at Marion General Hospital"

No shiat he's 'temporarily' working there . . . he just embezzled . . . err, lost . . . $42k.
2002-04-16 04:51:31 PM  
If I was this guy, I'd punch myself in the face.
2002-04-16 04:52:25 PM  
Biggest. Idiot. Alive.
2002-04-16 04:52:32 PM  
2002-04-16 04:53:11 PM  
Waited seven days to call the police because he was hoping it would show up in the lost and found?!?!

What a farkin idiot!

"yea, id like to turn in this backpack with 42 thousand dollars in it. thanks. .... Come on kids, back to the pinto."

2002-04-16 04:53:23 PM  
i hope no one said this but Dumbass is perfectly fitting
2002-04-16 04:54:10 PM  
If this guy really lost a backpack with 42G's in it and expected it to turn up in the lost and found, then he's an a55.

If this guy took the money and is using that as a cover story, then he's a MAJOR a55.
2002-04-16 04:54:35 PM  
Ony one kind of person would be dumb enough to be carrying that much in cold hard cash in a backpack and not report it for several days: drug dealers. He prolly had like some product in there, and was hoping not to call the cops in on it until "Silky Smooth" started wondering where his cash was.
2002-04-16 04:54:55 PM  
lost. yeah. sure he "lost" the backpack.
2002-04-16 04:55:51 PM  
Right...underprivledged countries...Who on earth would beleive that the money for underprivledged countries is carried all in cash in a backpack. Either drug deal or underground international sex toy ring. Or Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels...
2002-04-16 04:56:02 PM  
In other news Farkers in Marion , Indianna announce a Fark party with an open bar, and with Wil Wheaton and Tiffany playing volleyball.
2002-04-16 04:57:34 PM  
Everyone knows underdeveloped countries only accept cash
2002-04-16 04:57:46 PM  
"The money belonged to Naumoff and the Global Physicians Network and was intended for use in undeveloped countries where the group was doing work."= drug money.
2002-04-16 05:01:12 PM  
Worst. Excuse. Ever.
2002-04-16 05:01:39 PM  
Find this man, Smithers. I want to make him my executive vice president.
2002-04-16 05:02:17 PM  
wheres your price slashin smiley face Now! dumb@ss
2002-04-16 05:02:30 PM  
Why doesn't just admit that he blew the $42K on chili dogs at the food stand?
2002-04-16 05:02:58 PM  
dodgeball, Skinink...i want them playing dodgeball..
2002-04-16 05:03:07 PM  
shiat, if i had known a 71 year old guy was carrying around 42 grand in a wallmart, i'd have broken his hip and took the money.
2002-04-16 05:05:10 PM  
Fury, that was beautiful.
2002-04-16 05:05:26 PM  
I, too, think the tag is fitting. The headline is basically all the article says: the man says he lost a buttload of cash at Wal-Mart and hoped somebody would turn it in.

I wanna know where Tom Ridge is. $42K, plane tickets (were they one-way?) and a cell phone? In a backpack?

The terrorists have already won.
2002-04-16 05:06:46 PM  
Looking for a charity to donate to? The Global Physicians Network urgently needs $42,000.
2002-04-16 05:08:31 PM  
This guy was a Doctor? I am always amazed how some "inteligent" and otherwise bright people, can lack any semblance of common sence. WTF is up w/ that? I have a sister, a very bright person, unfortunatly she also lacks common sence.

Worst. Embezzlement. EVER!
2002-04-16 05:10:32 PM  
The funniest part of this is that even an Indianapolis TV station doesn't believe this is what REALLY happened.

"Investigators are trying to determine..." All they're trying to determine is who is lying, and about WHAT.
2002-04-16 05:10:55 PM  
If I had 42G's in cash, I wouldn't be shopping in Wal-Mart!!!! I'd be at the "Dollar Store".
2002-04-16 05:11:27 PM  
This man is certainly a dumbass but the story is not newsworthy. We can always trust the media to embellish to see how gullible their readers are.

He stole it, pure and simple. The cops know he stole it, the Global Physician's Network knows he stole it, he knows he stole it. The media knows he stole it too but they're just doing their job and distoring the truth for money.

They'll find the backpack or the passport or something in his lodgings or car, but we won't hear about that story, because it won't be interesting.
2002-04-16 05:11:59 PM  
If I found it I would yell, "YAHOOOOOOOO".
2002-04-16 05:12:30 PM  
now that's what i call a blue-light special....
2002-04-16 05:13:12 PM  
More likely he "lost' it in an overseas bank.
