His name is LAURENCE KIM PEEK.
- born November 11, 1951
- was able to memorize things from the age of 16–20 months.
- read books, memorized them, and then placed them upside down on the shelf to show that he had finished reading them, a practice he maintained all his life.
- could speed through a book in about an hour and remember almost everything he had read, memorizing vast amounts of information in subjects ranging from history and literature, geography and numbers to sports, music and dates.
- read by scanning the left page with his left eye, then the right page with his right eye;
- According to an article in The Times newspaper, he could accurately recall the contents, word for word, of at least 12,000 books.
- Aged 18, he got a job working out the payroll for 160 people: this was a task that took him only a few hours, without the need for a calculator.
- enjoyed approaching strangers and showing them his talent for calendar calculations by telling them on which day of the week they were born and what news items were on the front page of major newspapers. This means that he had the ability to tell a person born on any date (e.g. 16/6/1945) the actual week day on which he was born!
- died of a heart attack at his home on December 19, 2009, aged 58

In our clime a lot of us would actually refer to him as "imbecile"
