Came across this interesting write up and wanted to share with the group. I have heard of people with severe head trauma begin to see things or do things others could not do. Be interesting to hear what everyone thinks about this or may even know someone who experienced something similar to these stories.

Enjoy.

Kim Peek. The man who rain man was based on was born with part of his brain pushing into another part of his brain, and he became quite a genius. You should check his story out!

I like number 3's way of thinking...


He’s still got a ways to go before achieving his ultimate goal: Buying the government and having them dissolved. In acid.

While reading this I found myself wondering where the damage in their brains where mostly occurring. I noticed in one story it said that the human brain will actually rewire itself away from accessing the injured part of the brain. That is truly incredible. The man who was struck by lightning and became a piano genius and the man who was beaten into a math/fractal artist where the stories I enjoyed the most.

Great!

We need loonies to take us forward.

No inventor is normal.

Which is why I scream at parents medicating their difficult kids.

The world needs them!

That is called neuroplasticity and I have seen it actually happen over time with stroke and brain injury patients. Very cool thing to see people progress with the correct type of rehab.

In fairness, they did attribute it to author/site. However, when you see a list of 5, 6, 7, or 8 you can be guaranteed it started on cracked.com. that site is what I have been reading for the last month, as it is interesting AND funny.
