Jason Mortensen was coming out of surgery to repair a hernia — and still was feeling the effects of the anesthesia. In fact, he had no clue he was married — and was completely floored that he was married to such a beautiful woman.

So in effect, Jason was seeing his wife for the first time — again.

after talking to her for a few minutes though, and finding out she’s a high-maintenance b1tch, he begs the doctor to put him out again.

How will we know how “beautiful” she is without seeing her pictures?

Never mind my previous post. Theoria showed us how not guilty she is in Post #3.

I don't know who said it but some celebrity said "behind every beautiful talented woman there is a man who is sick of her sh*t".

There is something not quite right about this video. I felt uneasy watching it.

May be a fake...
" The Internet is ablaze over this video, purportedly showing a man named Jason Mortensen who's woken up from surgery and doesn't remember that the beautiful woman filming him is his wife of six years. It topped the front page of Reddit and has gotten a flurry of coverage from sites like by BuzzFeed and Gawker since then.

But here's the thing: it may not be real.

According to Dr. Larry Squire, a psychologist at the University of California-San Diego who specializes in memory impairment, there are basically two types of "amnesia": The first type, psychogenic amnesia, is a psychiatric condition that can involve retrograde memory loss, but isn't associated with surgery. The second, which is similar to Alzheimer's, can be caused by a loss of oxygen during surgery, but mainly leads to difficulty learning new information. Anaesthesia or oxygen deprivation can cause some retrograde memory loss, but it wouldn't wipe out six years of marriage. "It would not affect something so salient in a person's life," Squire says.

Other circumstantial evidence raises the BS factor on the video. One Reddit user found an old headshot of Mortensen from an audition website. This is the only video uploaded to Mortensen's YouTube channel, which employs the easy-to-remember username "UCx-PiDcTqvNUoyNHY5R7RIA". The video itself raises two questions: why would someone's wife be at the ready to film her husband's first moments of consciousness post-op? And would Mortensen really be wearing a hospital gown with a paw print on its front after recovering from hernia surgery?

This is the stuff of viral catnip, but coming off Jimmy Kimmel's well-executed "twerk fail" hoax, the Internet should take caution with plot lines straight out of a soap opera."

Guy is an actor...

“but it wouldn’t wipe out six years of marriage”.

I am sure someone somewhere is disappointed. LOL

Best I could do coming out from anasthesia was to respond to the nurse when she asked if I wanted something to drink.

"I'll have a boubon and water" seem like a good response at the time.

“if you want to be happy for the rest of your life, never make a pretty woman your wife... so from my personal point of view, pick an ugly girl to marry you...” i always got a kick out of that song... those lyrics...

No you would not. Especially not after hernia surgery.

Leave it to Freepers to take a sweet story and make the wife, without any evidence whatsoever, into a nasty creature.
