I used to be really good at memorizing stuff as a kid, and so I'd compete in stuff like the National Geographic Bee, which involves knowing a lot of facts, and do really quite well. (Yes, that's me). Unfortunately, I have no ability to remember anything for very long. Now that I've been in college for a while, I have a harder time memorizing, but I think that's mainly because of my insomnia and WoW addiction now.
