6 Aug – Mnemonic Device

What do you think of when I say the term “mnemonic device”?

Well, the absolute first thing that pops into my head is Johnny Mnemonic which I’m sure I’ve seen, but have absolutely no recollection of – perhaps because Keanu Reeves was in it.
After that, the first one is ROY G. BIV for the colours of the rainbow, and then My Very Elderly Mother Just Sat Upon Naughty People for the different planets.

I had completely forgotten the SOH CAH TOA one for trigonometry, but I do remember learning it… this is why I love wikipedia hehehe
