You should read Frames of Mind by psychologist Howard Gardner who proposed the theory of multiple intelligences. In his book he discusses autistic individuals that have amazing mathematical or musical abilities who can hardly function in normal situations.

This is NO ACCIDENT. The guy spent 20 years obsessed with calenders - of course he'll be superb at assigning a weekday to any date. Over time he probably created mental short cuts that allow him to calculate the date quickly even without knowing it.

I find this fascinating...but i find Kim Peek (off whom Rainman was based) and Daniel Paul Tammet to be even more incredible.
