    When I learned them our teacher taught us: "King Phillip Came Over From Germany Stoned." My wife learned it as: "King Phillip Came Over From Germany Sanctified."

    Any other variations?

    King Phillip crawled over fat girls' stomachs. Not mine, I learned that in college freshman bio.

    We had a great one that our chem teacher taught us for the periodic table. Keeping in mind that I've never actually had any cause to remember the periodic since I finished chemistry. I can still remember the first sentence..
    Harry he likes Betty but can not obtain frequent necking.

    H, He, Li, Be, B, C, N, O, F, Ne

    I had one for Kingdom, Phyllum that my biol teacher gave us but I very much doubt it will get through the filter.

    Cheers, Troy.

    How about the one to remember all the necessary plant nutrients?

    C. HOPKINS CaFe is Mighty good with some Manganese Cloride. Its so good that the Mob Comes In.

    This translates to: C, H, O, P, K, I, N, S, Ca, Fe, Mg, Mn, Cl, Mo, B, Cu.

    There you go, all the Macro and Micro nutrients needed by plants.

    I had a Lichens class when I was in college and for our lab final we had to ID 50 lichens to genus and species. The one I had the most trouble with was Ocrowlichia tartaria. So, I made up the saying "old crows lick tatar sauce". Now I'll never forget the darn thing!

    Pretty durn cool! The trick with remembering ANYTHING is to get it out of short term memory and into long term memory.

    Did Kinf Phillip really get stoned? Good for him! Long Live the King!
