For most people, talent – is the ability to sing, dance and so on. But some people are able to more of this, and most of them can not even control myself.
1. Orlando cereal
Whatever it was sad to have brain damage, there is a very small percentage of people who survived it and get a new unusual ability. People who get special abilities after a head injury, diagnosed acquired savant syndrome. Typically, savants have remarkable mathematical abilities, or may, for example, a very detailed paint Rome.
In 1979, Orlando Serell played baseball in elementary school when a stray ball flew into his head. However, it does not bother him, and he continued to play. During the year Serell suffered from headaches that can last for hours. By the end of that year, he realized that he could do an excellent calendar calculation, for example, he knew how many Mondays were in 1980. Along with this incredible skill he could remember every detail of every day as if gipertimezii. If Serella was not a severe form of brain damage, but the head injury was.
Ordinary people often envy the skills of savants. The reason that the servants have brain works so well, that they take everything literally and mark items for which we do not pay attention. That’s why savants great difficulties arise during the various school tests: These tests are given broad issues that do not meet narrowly focused way of thinking savants.
2. Thai Ngoc
Vietnamese farmer Tai Ngoc suffered a fever in 1973, which at first did not seem to him nothing fancy. But when the fever is gone, it occurred severe case of insomnia. In the hope that it will be held this week, Ty did not give it much importance. At the moment, he had not slept for the past 40 years since that night, when suffered fever.
You can decide that after 12,000 nights without sleep you will be dead, but after a medical examination, he found only minor problems with the liver. The only thing that Ngoc complains that he has become a little irritable after more than 30 years without sleep. He tried countless home remedies and even tried to drown in alcohol insomnia. But it seems that nothing worked. So why is it taking so long insomnia?
One explanation for this phenomenon can give as micro. Microsleep occurs when part of your brain gets tired and decides to quickly sleep for a few seconds. For most of us it happens when we get tired – our brain temporarily shuts down and then starts to work again. A good example of microsleep – when the driver fell asleep at the wheel. That’s probably why, Ngoc did not sleep for so long.
3. Most Tibetans
Sherpas, Nepalese nationality known fact that they are agents of the people on Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world. Nepalese Sherpas and most Tibetans have a feature that allows them to survive in the mountains at an altitude of about four kilometers above sea level. Just a few years ago, scientists had no idea how they do it. Now we know that 87% of the Tibetans have a special gene that allows them to consume 40% less oxygen than normal people.
EPAS1 gene responsible for the ability of Tibetans living at high altitudes for a long time. Most people who have risen to a height of three kilometers, raises the level of hemoglobin. Hemoglobin – the substance is in our blood, which contributes to the spread of oxygen throughout the body. EPAS1 gene does not allow Tibetans to hemoglobin in the blood to rise above a certain level, which prevents heart problems that can be experienced by other people.
According to the researchers, the Tibetans got this ability of the now extinct species Denisovskoye person. Denisovskoe people lived in an area where Tibetans live now, and in their fossil was found the same gene EPAS1. It seems that this gene is only the Tibetans and residents of some of the Pacific Islands, as Denisovskoe people interbred with other human subspecies, creating a reserve of this gene is not yet extinct.
4. Elisabeth Sulser
Nowadays, most people have heard about synesthesia – the condition in which some of the senses are mixed. For example, when people with synesthesia eating red candy «Skittles», they can feel the taste of cherries, even if it is in fact a different taste, and some people may feel the color with your eyes closed.
Elisabeth Sulser mingled sight, taste and hearing, allowing her to see the colorful sound waves and to taste the music. Assuming that this is a normal condition, it is my whole life thinking that other people can try music and see sounds. However, when Elizabeth realized that nobody else there is no such ability, she felt lonely because no one could share their feelings. Incidentally, synesthesia – it is not always good. People who can see sounds, constantly distracted in noisy environments, and as you can imagine, quite often suffer from headaches.
Fortunately, Elizabeth – a musician, so its unusual ability to greatly help her, allowing you to create a symphony of colors and melodies. Remain largely mysterious condition synesthesia does not seem to bring Sulser no adverse effects, especially since, as she began to see only the music, but not all of the sounds at all.
Anonymously known as CM, the woman is suffering from an unknown illness that caused the complete destruction of her cerebellar tonsils (part of the brain that controls fear). SM, a mother of three children, cannot feel fear, no matter how frightening or the situation was. In the study that its ability to fear, CM looked the worst of horror movies and touched a snake’s tongue.
However, the CM remembers how afraid of the dark as a child, but by the time she reached early adolescence, her cerebellar tonsils were destroyed. She even described a meeting with a man when walking alone in the park at night. He ran to her and put a knife to her throat. Instead of being frightened to death, the CM said quietly that at first he will have to go through her guardian angel, that spooked the offender. Now she describes this case simply as weird.
6. Dean Karnazes
Anyone who has ever participated in a marathon knows that sometimes you need to take a quick break. As for Dean Karnazes, his muscles allow him to run forever.
Normally, the human body gets energy from glucose, also produces lactate. If lactate becomes too much, the body starts to produce lactic acid, which destroys its surplus. Dean’s body does not interfere with the accumulation of lactate, which never allows him to get tired. Dean started running in high school, when he joined the team on the run. While team members on average could only run 15 laps, he ran 105, until he was told to stop. Since then, he has not stopped running until he was 30 years old.
Obviously concerned, some scientists in Colorado tested his stamina. They said that the test will take about 15 minutes, but Dean continued to walk on the treadmill for an hour. With its unique ability he once ran 50 marathons in 50 days.
7. Tibetan monks
Monks from South Asia, especially in Tibet, say they have learned to control body temperature, using an ancient form of meditation called Tum-mo. According to Buddhism, our lives – it’s not all that exists, there is also a kind of alternate reality. Practicing Tum-mo, monks, presumably reached this other world. During meditation, Tum-mo, they produce a significant amount of heat.
During the study of this strange phenomenon, scientists were amazed to discover that the temperature of the fingers and toes monks rises by as much as eight degrees Celsius. Tum-mo – is not the only form of meditation practiced by Tibetan monks. Other forms of meditation also allow monks to lower metabolism. Metabolism controls the rate of degradation of calories. People with a slow metabolism, gain weight faster because their bodies cannot break down quickly enough calories. Through meditation monks can lower your metabolism by about 64%. Unlike normal people, it allows them to save energy. For comparison, the average person’s metabolism is reduced by 15% during sleep.
8. Chris Robinson
Once Chris Robinson woke up after a bright dream in which two planes collided in the air space. Since that day, he allegedly began to see the future in his dreams. In addition, Robinson can wake up at a time when it wants to, and write down their dreams in a diary of dreams, which he directs.
Stan Lee himself (with the help of Daniel Browning Smith) conducted an experiment involving Robinson. He said Robinson, the next day they are going to take him to 10 seats, and its task was to see these places in a dream. The next day, Robinson wrote every place he dreamed, on a separate sheet of paper, and sealed them in envelopes. When they came to a certain place, they opened the envelope and found that Robinson guessed everything.
Of course, the results look very suspicious. Robinson tested again. This time he had to guess, that the organizers have put in a box. Within 12 days once a day Robinson guessed what was in the box. He guessed the only two times out of 12, that does not prove the existence of his psychic powers.
9. Eskil Ronningsbakken
Ronningsbakken, artist, performs deadly stunts, first learned about the art of balance, when he was five years old. Interest in this he appeared when he was 11 years old on TV saw a man to do extraordinary stunts. When Ronningsbakkenu was 18 years old, he fled to the circus and performed for 11 years. He knew that the art of balance – that’s what he wants to do.
Now, in his 30-plus years, Ronningsbakken risks his life by walking upside down on a bicycle on a tightrope over the canyon and doing handstands on the crossbar, which hangs under a flying balloon. In the video below, he rides a bicycle backwards on a streamer in Norway. Ronningsbakken not, however, fearless and recognizes that very nervous in front of tricks. He believes that fear – a feeling which makes us human, and if he loses the feeling of fear, he immediately drops everything, because he is afraid to stop being a man.

In Saransk, Russia, a girl named Natalia Demkina suddenly began to see through the body of the people. Since childhood, Natalia home people have come to she looked inside and told them what they get sick.
Interested in girl-x-ray Dr. Ray Hyman invited her to New York for a series of tests. One of them included six patients with different diagnoses – from the remote appendix to the presence of a metal plate in his skull from a brain tumor – and one healthy control participants. Natalia correctly named four of the six that is certainly impressive, even though it says it can see at the cellular level.
However, it is interesting that she confused patient and the patient’s appendix with a metal plate in his skull – a serious mistake for a man who can see inside other people. In the end, see a doctor or someone with X-ray vision – it’s your choice.
