Nelson Dellis can memorize the suits, the colors and the numbers in a deck of cards in just 43 seconds; he was also able to memorize the names of 50-plus TODAY staffers after just brief introductions. (Meanwhile, we're having a hard time remembering what we had for lunch.)
Dellis is the winner of the USA Memory Championship, which was held in New York over the weekend. As it turns out, only a small percentage of the population actually has a photographic memory -- these memory athletes commit to months of training before competition. "Anybody can do this. You can do it, anybody on the street can do it," Dellis told TODAY's Jenna Wolfe. "It's understanding how the brain works, and taking advantage of it."
What about you, readers? After watching the clip, would you try the tricks this memory champ suggests? What everyday thing -- online passwords, new acquaintances' names, where you parked the car -- do you tend to forget the most?
