You know all those people who say "Sorry I'm terrible at remembering names and faces"? Turns out there are people who got ALLLLL the facial recognition ability. It's apparently not a straight memory thing -- you can be great at recognizing faces but can't remember to pick up milk -- might have something more to do with artistic ability.

Sounds like this kind of memory is more something you're born with than something you can practice.
