If you value your safety DO NOT give this man a gun.
2014-04-10 07:15:43 AM  
It's clearly Ewan MacGregor
2014-04-10 07:18:26 AM  
But he'll do a lot count.  For crying out loud.

Also wants to know where his kidneys are.

Obviously they have found Jason Bourne.
2014-04-10 07:31:47 AM  
Is this part of the new Bourne trilogy?
2014-04-10 07:33:17 AM  
Jason Bournski?
2014-04-10 07:36:54 AM

You can't really erase memory without massive brain damage. He's likely lying.

Hopefully, the Norwegians won't stretch his legs.
2014-04-10 07:48:27 AM  
Oh, you found an eastern european guy drugged senseless and left in a snow drift to die?

Post his face and story all over the internet to make sure whoever left them there knows where to go to finish the job.  Good idea.
2014-04-10 08:01:14 AM  
Street preformers are odd ones.
2014-04-10 08:04:01 AM  
He's hot.  Yowzers.
2014-04-10 08:05:46 AM  
Done in one.
2014-04-10 08:06:56 AM  
He speaks Russian with a Russian accent?

That's pretty Russian
2014-04-10 08:08:41 AM  
Wait, what languages does he understand? They didn't say.
2014-04-10 08:12:38 AM  

MechaPyx: Was he related to this guy?

Maybe their minds have been switched and amnesia is the shock of discovering the body you're in isn't your own.

/maybe I read too much sci-fi

You get over it.  In time.

Jerks! They should at least tell him where he is.
2014-04-10 08:19:25 AM  
Maybe he is from the missing plane
2014-04-10 08:20:45 AM  
Unidentified man calls himself John Smith

Oh, that's just the Doctor, then... Nothing to worry about...
2014-04-10 08:28:12 AM  
And the sex crimes unit is handling it, hmmmm

There's still a street with his name in Nuremberg.

Archie Goodwin: If you value your safety DO NOT give this man a gun.

Or a shard of glass. Or a rolled up magazine. Or a piece of string. Or a feather.
2014-04-10 09:09:32 AM  
Has anyone tried to punch him to see if he has reflexive combat skills?
2014-04-10 09:18:54 AM  
The mystery man, who calls himself John Smith but does not know his real name, was found with a cocktail of drugs in his system and cuts on his wrist suggesting they had been strapped.

He said he is not Norwegian but may be Czech as that is the language he understands best. He also understands Slovak, Polish and Russian and speaks with a heavy Russian accent.

I'm sure Putin will be willing to finish the job...I mean help find his real identity.
2014-04-10 09:21:33 AM  
From the commentary section:

norwegian news: Mysteriemannen "John Smith" er identifisert av tsjekkisk politi som ein tsjekkisk borgar. Det melder politiet til VG. Mannen i tjueåra vart funnen i ei snøfonn i Oslo i desember, og er heilt utan minne. The czech police have identified him as a czech citizen in his twenties, and he is looking forward to seeing his parents who he can't remember.

He sorta looks like Patrick Swayze from the early 90's.
2014-04-10 09:56:43 AM  
...like a screen door in a hurricane.
2014-04-10 10:00:39 AM  
This is fargin war.
2014-04-10 10:38:16 AM  
Sounds like he had a hell of a time at the Oslo fark party.

The Jersey Mafia are getting cheekier.
2014-04-10 11:34:50 AM  
I bet Putin was behind this. Maybe he's the real president of Ukraine.

Sounds like the beginning of a Jo Nesbo novel.

Don't be so sure.  I doubt the CIA are the only spooks that use scopolamene-based amnesia drugs.
