Memory is a skill that everyone needs but it is taken to whole other level when set as a competition. Memorising 7 packs of cards with no errors allowed is enough to see most memory experts banned from all the casinos in the world. They are often brilliant showmen despite the silence needed to memorise a 10000 digit binary number.
Memory is one of the 10 events of the Decamentathlon where the comparatively easy task of learning a pack of cards in 5 minutes and 96 digit number in another are set.
