Absolutely Amazing Video.

Wife of DCeiver, who's logged a lot of hours with autistic children, frequently reminds that the average autistic person isn't like the character from Rain Man. In fact, the population of what are termed "prodigious savants" only comes to about fifty people worldwide, and savantism is found in people who aren't autistic (though brain injury/condition with the CNS plays a role in all cases).

Nevertheless, the things prodigous savants can do is AMAZING. Want proof? Check out Steven Wiltshire. Click on the video, and watch. I promise you, at the 2:09 mark, you will say to yourself, out loud, "Holy shit!" So do not watch this anywhere where that would be considered gauche!
