Waking up as a Swede

I liked it:

Four months after he was found unconscious in a Palm Springs, Calif., motel, doctors are looking into the mystery of a Florida man who awoke with no memory of his past and speaking only Swedish.
And I suspect that waking up speaking another language is just for starters, no one knows what else them scientists have got in store for us. This is like getting another life. Imagine yourself, a little fat balding Frenchman waking up as a two meter blond blue-eyed Norwegian... the possibilities are endless, I would say.

What is in it for me? Well, possibly a way to resolve that stand-off with Saudi Arabian Airlines and their strange unwillingness to let Israeli passport holders pay them some money. Just take a pill and the next morning you are a Muslim from, say, Indonesia, and snug as a bug with Saudi Airlines... the possibilities is endless and the world is your oyster.

I expect the Sauds (pronounced Sods) fear that if one of their pilots knew there was a Jew on board, he'd feel compelled to crash the plane for Allah.

Yep, that would be a clear and present danger for the crew.

" waking up as a two meter blond blue-eyed Norwegian" I hate it when that happens. It takes 3 or 4 days sometimes to recover. Then I wake up with a pile of Ingemar Bergman films and an old chess board.

Still, you have a few good days to start with - as a Norwegian.
