Quite the opposite. I have plenty of memories that go back to about 18
months. (My facebook photo is of me at that age, and I remember the brush).
Beginning to think there is something wrong with me, though, given all
the people on this list who claim diminished recall.
And, a propos of the people with radically complete recall, this is
probably an autism spectrum issue. They probably suffer side effects as
a result of it, and there is probably a good reason why the "normal"
brain does not flood us with total recall.
