I may have seen the same show Pudge on the Rainman.It talked about his life and the things he goes through daily.It's kind of weird I actually am quite fascinated by people like the Rainman. I think the show was called Super Human and it was about people with unusual gifts.It may have been on the Discovery Channel. I mean this was a great show and it really is amazing how unique these people are.
One guy was blind all of his life yet can paint beautiful paintings.They took him to a place in Italy where they wanted to see if he had depth perception and he did paint or build a minature building that there was no way he could have known.Another story had a guy who doesn't get cold to a certain temperature. His challenge was to walk 12 miles in underwear with no boots or anything but barefeet. After going 10 miles the emergency tech told him he needs to quit or frost bite might cause him to lose his feet. He decided he was going to finish the race and did. They took him indoors and examined him.Afte a period of time he was able to baffle the doctors and warm his feet up rubbing them or something. I guess when you have frost bite the body shuts down but he did it and was ok.Another lady she says she can hear music and see colors.Not only does she have percfect pitch but she sees actual colors from notes.
I don't remember alot of the other stories but if you googled it Super Human the show you might be able to order it.There were a number of stories and I think Rainman was one of them. The brain or the human body is a powerful mechanism and some people have extraordinary gifts.
Now if we could only get Mckay to use 2% of his brain to make the Falcon selections we would be alot better than we are now.
