Funes and the Shas Pollak

Wiki dixit: "Shas Pollak were Jewish mnemonists who ... memorized the exact layout of words in more than 5,000 pages of the 12 books of the standard edition of the Babylonian Talmud."

Funes the Memorious remembered absolutely everything, not just what he read, but also each second of his life. In order to recount what had happened to him the day before, he'd spend 24 hours.
