Mnemonics!

  1. I before E,
    Except after C,
    And words sounding like 'ay'
    As in 'neighbour' and 'weigh'


    However full of holes (feisty, seize, weird, science) is a very well known MNEMONIC! A mnemonic is any way of rephrasing a thing to make it easier to remember; that can be rhymes, songs, acronyms, or anything else

    'Righty tighty lefty loosey' is a mnemonic!

    The alphabet song is a mnemonic!

    Post your favourite mnemonics here!

    Even though I'm not religious, I like this little rhyme!
    Have pa-tience
    Have pa-tience
    Don't be in such a hurry
    When you get
    Im- pa-tient
    You only start to worry
    Remember
    Remember
    That God is patient too
    And think of all the times that others
    Had to wait for you!

    PORPHYRIA - the "vampire" or "werewolf" disease. (This disease was thought to have spawned the myth of vampires/werewolfs because of the symptoms.)
    Historically, this disease was found in those of royal lineage due to marriage amongst close relatives. Caused by a disorder in porphyrin or heme synthesis, something super duper important in the blood!

    Symptoms of cutaneous porphyria include:
    -Photosensitivity (also called "sun poisoning" or "photoallergy"; contact with light may result in rash of the skin.)
    -Necrosis of skin/gums (dying skin/gums)
    -Pruritus (Fancy-schmancy term for "itching")
    -Discoloration of teeth, typically red
    -PURPLING OF POOPOO OR PEE PEE when exposed to light during an attack (porphyra means "purple" in Greek"

    The gal ran to f*ck! GAL RAN FAC (Parts of the adrenal gland and the hormones associated)

  6. 12 in the face, 6 in the plate!

    That's the only one I can think of right now, referring to sheer nailing into ply wood. Carpentry stuffs. When I was first starting that always helped me remember a 6 and 12 standard nailing pattern.
     
  7. When I taught myself to play guitar, I used this for standard tuning:

    Eddy
    Ate
    Dynamite
    Good
    Bye
    Eddy

    >__> And then I stopped playing guitar, because learning on my own was too difficult for me.
