What are some mnemonic devices you have used seemingly forever? I use the following and some more probably... Never Eat Shredded Wheat - North East South West, the directions of the compass going clockwise. Tom or row - how to spell "tomorrow". Desert/dessert - Desert has one s for Sand, dessert has two s's for Sweet Stuff. Lose/loose - Lose lost an "o". Loose has has two o's loosely next to each other (no it doesn't make sense to be either but I remember it!) There's some obvious ones that I don't use very often relating to the notes on a scale or the colors of the rainbow... What ones do you have? Maybe what you type here will be ingrained in other users memories for the rest of their lives!
