I wish my wife had a 30 second memory AM I RIGHT GUYS

I suppose if she ever tired of his condition and wanted to bump him off to collect insurance money, she'd only need to take him scuba diving or something.

This is one of the saddest things Ive ever seen.

Jack Dalton - 2009-03-31

Yeah... there was a documentary made about him 20 years ago. I can't even imagine being conscious for 20 years without remembering anything that happened.

Or it's like the best dog you could ever want.

@jack dalton: you can't imagine it because it's axiomatically nonsensical

Isn't this what every Buddhist and Yogi strives for? (I know that comment is limiting, there is no need to rebuff it.)

Also: A guy goes to the doctor and the doctor says 'Well your tests came back, you have Alzheimer's and you have cancer," and the guy says "At least I don't have caner!"

I make jokes to deal with the sadness :(

Xiphias - 2009-03-31

As to your first point, that's a dumb interpretation.

As to your joke, you fucked it up - it goes "You have cancer and Alzheimer's." It makes no sense that he'd forget the second thing told to him but not the first.

The weird thing is how every moment, he thinks he has just woken up and has his memory back. He keeps huge journals where every few minutes he writes the time and "I am finally awake", crosses it out and writes it again, etc.

It's neat to see that he was really in love with his wife when it happened, and always will be.

He can still play the piano because the virus didn't affect his procedural memory and so I wonder to what degree, if any, his affection is mechanical. If an enduring feeling were the reason then I think it's strange that he should remember this woman, his second wife to whom he was married a year, and no one else, not even his children. But then he seems so sincerely happy when he sees her that I don't like to call it anything less than love.

It's so interesting what happens when the brain gets fucked up.

i just want to scream at the wife "HE DOESN'T FUCKING KNOW STOP TORTURING HIM!!"

IrishWhiskey - 2009-03-31

I wouldn't be surprised if that's a standard part of exercising his memory and noting improvement or decline.

The real tragedy is that although this particular condition is rare, its not too different that what happens with severe Alzheimers.

charmlessman - 2009-03-31

At least he's deliriously happy to see his wife every time he does. That's nice.

Camonk - 2009-03-31

"Like death..."
Yeah you said that earlier, we'd like to...
"No human beings, no thoughts..."
Yeah, Mr Wearing, we know. But if you could just like move ON
"Day and night, the same..."
Oh fuck here's your wife. Jesus. This interview is a trainwreck.

Not ANOTHER new character on Lost, God damn it. . . .
Let me guess, his constant's Jack.

baleen - 2009-03-31

Is that Michio Kaku?

FineFilter - 2009-03-31

"Utterly lost in time." Get it? "Utterly."

Oh wait, what?

Prickly Pete - 2009-04-01

He's faking. It's his idea of dry British wit.
