I'll return to this later, but if you've seen it you've seen some interesting stuff, the autistic guy that can replicate any piano song within seconds and can remember every song he's head and can do it in different styles, WOW!

What? you serious? that was outrageous, if there's one thing without a doubt true it's that awesome powers of mentality that some autistic people have, they're like living breathing computers, without a doubt incredible. Of course those songs aren't ones people normally heard, they were testing obscure knowledge (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

It's really an interesting program, it really shows that true magic is always around, always pervading our presence but often the ordinary person fails to see or recognize it.

I really really love the idea of retards with superpowers. imagine...

Seriously though, their are allot of true accounts of quite amazing skills, not many are going to be magical, some will be though.
Unfortunately the vast majority of autistic people don't have superpowers, i think a lot of the time we just notice the special skills more in people who lack basic ones.
I personally use that tactic quite a lot.

I've argued this before, we as supposedly 'true' magicians argue against the statecraft of such things as pure stage talent and ordinary people doing extraordinary things, but the real point of this show I feel is to show people that out there lurks truly incredible people who stretch are comprehension of what should be possible and what shouldn't be possible.

Draw, nice point about influencing people, we as people love things that don't challenge us yet make us think differently at the same time.

The one that blew my mind was the episode that had that guy who could climb just about anything. Watching him move was like watching a monkey in the trees - only he was in an urban enviroment. Then you have the host of the show himself, who can fit himself inside a box that is only 1/3 his size. I've never doubted that anybody is capable of extraordinary things. But that show seems to focus on the extra-extraordinary.
