"Hyperthymesia"...or aka "total recall" is a brain disorder i do NOT have! I may have a "touch of blonde moments aka "flashes of momentary stupidity"
, but I think I'd rather have the latter affliction to be truthful! Seems a person would lose more time remembering every detail of their memories and missing out on what's currently happening. Now...what the hell was I going to do? Oh yeah post these articles about Jill Price that I found interesting!
Ahem....shush Scott Todd!
Price was the first person ever to be diagnosed with what is now known as highly superior autobiographical memory, or HSAM, a condition she shares with around 60 other known people.

Over time, it became clear that Price’s autobiographical memory was potentially unprecedented. But when it came to remembering details that did not relate to her personally, Price proved no better than average.
