  • Number of telephone numbers memorized in 1990: about 30.
    Other numerical facts memorized in 1990: Uruguayan national ID card number, home address (street and door numbers).

    Number of telephone numbers memorized in 2012: 5 (6, if I get a couple of attempts. Funny fact: 2 of those numbers are from the 1990 subset).
    Other numerical facts memorized in 2012: social security number, San Francisco Public Library card number, home address numbers (street, ZIP code), student ID number... I'm sure there are more, but I can't remember.
