Do you know this guy?

Mr. X

Scanning through a few newspapers before I was leaving the office, I came across a story about a guy dubbed Mr. X (story written in Norwegian). The guy was found on a bench in downtown Oslo in the middle of May, and claims he doesn’t remember who he is. Doctors and psychologist believe he is telling the truth. He speaks Japanese and a little English. And he probably knows some girl named Jenny, he had a picture of a girl in his backpack and the text “Jenny Paris 08 2002” was written on the back. Or maybe he slaughtered Jenny in Paris after having taken her picture.

So, is he faking it? He’s currently living the good life on a hotel in Oslo. On my tax money. And why am I mentioning this? To get my 15 minutes of fame, of course. If someone recognizes the guy from the pictures in this entry and the mystery is solved, they’re bound to mention my site at some point. Think of all the visitors! I can’t wait!

I’m going to JavaZone tomorrow and Friday, so I’ll probably not come to the office. Unless something goes terribly wrong with the WAP server.
