Meet Jill Price, the woman who remembers everything. So if you asked her what she was doing on June 2nd of 1995, she will be able to tell you. 

She has hyperthymestic syndrome, which gives her this super power. Scientists are unsure of how it works but some of her brain areas are three times larger than the average. 

Her semantic memory (factual memory) isn’t that strong. So if asked to memorize a list, she probable won’t be able to do it. But her episodic memory (emotional memory) is fantastic.

But her gift can also be a curse. Imagine remembering EVERY single emotional thing that has ever happened to you, from that terrible break up to even as something as severe as a loved one’s death.

“I don’t look back at the past with any distance,” Jill said. “It’s like an endless chaotic film that can completely overpower me. And there’s no stop button.”

no really can we just talk about him for a moment. aside from his dashing good looks, and net worth of $200 million, this boy dropped out of high school at 15, because he had no time for the bullshit educational system. he went on to work for a computer coding company, made the right connections, and look at him now. needless, to say he’s changed the world and made mine and millions of other’s life so much better
