Examples of people who possess extraordinary human abilities

The man who can run 50 Marathons, in 50 Consecutive Days, in 50 different States.
Dean Karnazes

This guy can literally (yes, literally) run forever at 10+ Km/Hr if kept sufficiently well hydrated and fed. The guy has actually ran 350 miles (560 km) in 80 hours and 44 minutes without sleep in 2005. Try browsing Facebook without sleep for 80 hours, this guy was running, while maintaining an average speed greater than 7 Km/hr, for 560 Km.

The Super Human Part:

“they measured his CPK number, which shows the amount of damage your muscles sustain from exercise. So for instance, a normal runner’s CPK would be through the roof after a marathon — around 2,400. Karnazes’ was found to be at 447 … after 25 consecutive marathons.”

Shakuntala Devi

She is the only person who comes to my mind when i see the word “Mental calculator/Human computer”.

Some of her achievements –

in 1980, Shakuntala Devi demonstrated the multiplication of two 13-digit numbers: ‘7,686,369,774,870 x 2,465,099,745,779’, picked randomly by the Computer Department of Imperial College, London. She produced the correct answer of ‘18,947,668,177,995,426,462,773,730’, in just 28 seconds.

In 1977, at the Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, She extracted the 23rd root of a 201-digit number, in 50 seconds, with the correct answer being ‘546372891’. She had beaten the then fastest computer, UNIVAC’s time of 62 seconds, and 13,000 instructions.

Shakuntala could find the cube root of 332 812 557 in under a minute.
