We want your be smarter and stronger! This week we found weird trivia stories about our weirdest and most mysterious thinkin' organ. Ever been impressed by someone with a photographic memory? Dana finds out what exactly is photographic memory and now we all want to be memory athletes for the Olympics of memorization. Karen revisits Temple of Doom and tries to pinpoint the real origin of the monkey brains dish and why is it in popular culture so much. And believe it or not, Colin dons his Ripley mustache and shares a brainy story of a remarkable man named Phineas Gage.

ALSO: More audio palindromes, Chris' Boston trivia
