    I know how to hypnotize a lobster.

    I also can identify if a lobster is male or female.

    I have synesthesia. Whenever I hear music, I think and see colors. Middle C is forest green and it goes up in brightness as it goes up the scale. The key directly behind middle C is blue, and it goes all the way down to black. My favorite span of color is light purple to orange, with a little soft lemony yellow in there.

    Yes, Steely Dan, Rush and most twangy, nasally country music comes in as an ugly muddy yellow brown and tastes like gun metal. Any song in the 3/4 time signature style (all waltzes) comes in as a soft, fluffy pink that tastes like cotton candy or bubble gum.

    I like or dislike music based on the colors it gives me. If it's in a nasty color shade, I won't listen to it. If it is a pleasant color palette, I will add it to my Ipod.

    I have a bit of that as well being a musician...more specifically, Chromesthesia as related to colors that I see when I play/perform as well as listen. Not to your extent, but I do understand and it is interesting how music can be perceived. If you haven't seen this list, you might find it interesting for those with various forms of synesthesia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_people_with_synesthesia. Some great quotes there by some great artists. Thanks for the share. I have only met one other person in my life as a musician who sees colors. You would be the second. Very cool, at least to me.

    I can remember random facts, MANY MANY random facts.

    If I hear a line from a song I can almost always sing the rest of it or identify what it is that's playing, even in a noisy public place (I can always identify background music).

    I can quote entire movies and dialogues, after only having seen/heard them once or twice. Not particularly useful, unless I need to entertain my mom and siblings while we're stuck in traffic for hours on a closed mountain highway and I decide to "play" them Beauty and the Beast, all from out of my head. Which I did once.
