You will find people who suffer from severe head injuries and deal with temporary or complete amnesia. The only good thing is that when treated properly, the amnesia sufferers (after an accident) eventually regain their memory. You might have confronted people who abuse drugs and alcohol, then later in life suffer from memory loss significantly.
