believers only got stories about things they think happened to them.. the problem is most people´s memory isnt accurate
that isnt the case with this woman.. Marilu Henner.. yep.. the woman from taxi

she isnt autistic..
i think i heard there is only 6 people like this in the world (that we know of)


today she was on howard stern..
stern ask him suddenly if she remembered the earlier times she went on the show
and she did.. she even remembered days before where she encounter stern on the street...

60 Minutes did a good segment on this memory thing a couple months ago. Those 6 or 7 people that have it are quite impressive at the things they remember. Here's a link to the 60 Minutes segment if you didn't get a chance to see it.

From ProfWag's link:
"You went to the most important thing that happened that day," Stahl remarked.

"Right. That was the most, I mean, you probably don't want to hear about, you know, sort of the daily 'Oh, I got up in the morning. And I got dressed,'" Owen said.

Asked if she could remember what she was having for lunch, Owen told Stahl, "Not what I had for lunch that day. But I do remember what I had for dinner the night before."

"And effortless? It just pops in?" Stahl asked.

"Right," Owen said. "I mean, for me, it's almost as automatic as if you say, 'What is your name and where do you live?'"

Heck, there are days I can't even remember THAT.
