After Terrible Wreck, Man Becomes Math Genius

Back in 2005, Neelakantha Bhanu Prakash was in an automobile accident that resulted in a fractured skull and 85 stitches.

Doctors told his parents that Bhanu would have trouble with his brain for the rest of his life because of his head injuries.

They couldn’t have been any more wrong.

Bhanu just broke the world record for computing math problems -- in his head -- faster than anyone ever.

For example, he was able to compute 869,463,853 times 73 -- in just 26 seconds. No calculator. No scratch paper.

Bhanu's mind processes numbers at an average speed of 12 per second, which is about 10 times faster than a regular brain.

And, he doesn’t have bad feelings or memories about that car accident 15 years ago. Instead, he explains that the accident changed the way he defines fun -- and it is the reason why he’s here today, breaking records. Read the Amazing Story from The Science Times HERE
