GARY, IN—Gary Brickner, 52, of Gary, Indiana is known as the local genius around town. Once people found out his name was also the name of the city in which they lived, they couldn’t get enough. One thing to know about Gary is he likes to ride bikes.

On the date of 11/29/2016, Gary went to the doctor for an annual check-up. He sat in the waiting room with some other residents of Gary, IN. Being the genius he is, Gary wrote down the date on his forms without having to check his phone or anything. One waiting room bystander couldn’t believe his eyes and his immediate reaction was to applaud this oddity. Soon, the entire waiting room was applauding. One thing to know about Gary is, he has a bad hip.

Gary tries to be as humble as he can with his date writing ability. He has exclusively told us, “I sometimes ask what the date is so I don’t make people feel uncomfortable, but I already know the date.” One thing to know about Gary is, he only wears socks when it rains.

Many have attempted what Gary has mastered, but always fall short. They don’t know the date like Gary does. One thing to know about Gary is he loves Pomegranates.

When we reached out to Gary for further comment, he had this to say:

“I remember when we didn’t have phones and we just knew the date. You could say that always stuck with me.”

He does have a point. One thing to know about Gary is, he always has a point.
