Ron White Superhuman: The Memory Superhuman
Ron White, the Brain Athlete is known for his incredible memory. His memory has been tested on Stan Lee’s Super Humans and several other TV shows. His more recent project required him to memorize every soldiers’ name that died in Afghanistan in order of death, beginning with the first and ending with the most recent. He memorized 2,200 names, including their first and last names and their rank. That’s over 7,000 words. He displays their names on a memorial wall which takes him hours to write in front of an audience at events such as Nascar. Ron does not claim to have superhuman abilities but a cat scanned revealed that Ron uses 35% more of his right frontal cortex when he memorizes things.
