Re: MNEMONICS.

I see someone has edited the post I submitted on 2009-01-02.  I had written:

_s_e_x_ over here = sine: opposite / hypotenuse

but someone or something had removed the naughty word _s_e_x_ and replaced it with gender giving the nonsense you can see above.

Re: MNEMONICS.

Hi random_fruit;

I can't find the post where that happened but the site has a filter to weed out offensive or colorful words.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

Mother Saw Father Wearing The Turban on Sunday.

Monday-7.30-9AM, Saturday-9-10.30AM, Friday-10.30-12AM, Wednesday-12-1.30PM, Thursday-1.30-3 PM, Tuesday-3-4.30PM, Sunday-4.30-6PM.


2. Spectral class of stars

Oh Be A Fine Girl Kiss Me!

3. Color code in Resistors

B.B.ROY of Great Britain has a Very Good Wife.

Any more mnemonics???

For the resistor one my CT teacher at school taught us this

Bad Boys R*** Ordinary Young Girls But Virgins Go Without

Not exactly PC but this was the eighties, apparently it came out of BNFL, BAE Systems and Leyland Motors. Not sure if there is any
truth to that.


I see it, but I don't believe it.

Re: MNEMONICS.

Hi Daja;

You might consider a speed reading course. Sometimes a person's mind can wander while reading because the normal way is too slow to keep the brain interested.
