In 1979 10-year-old Orlando Serrell was hit in the head with a baseball. Unharmed, except from a temporary headache, the accident unlocked amazing mental capacities, making Serrell an “acquired savant” (one who develops genius capabilities at some point after birth). Since that day he has developed incredible abilities relating to the calendar. He can, for example, remember the weather, where he was, and what he was doing for every day since the accident.
