Memorizing stuff easily

Memorizing Method This was originally going to be my first instructable but I figured it would be better off as a forum thingy. This is a method that can help you remember up to 10 items. I learned this from one of my teachers and find that it is quite effective. All you need for this is a brain, the names of 10 items, very little rhyming ability, and some imagination. Rhyming words that that you need to know... ONE rhymes with BUN TWO with TREE THREE with TREE FOUR with DOOR FIVE with HIVE SIX with STICKS SEVEN with HEAVEN EIGHT with GATE NINE with LINE TEN with HEN How do you apply these rhymes to remembering stuff you ask, here’s how. With an example... say the ten things you need to remember are, computer, a grenade, frog, cow, ninja, thumbtack, phone, cereal, Kansas, and CD. Computer is your #1 item and BUN rhymes with ONE, soooooo, picture a computer in a hamburger bun STOP! Visualize this image for a moment, and then move on. A grenade is your #2 item, TWO rhymes with SHOE so picture a grenade in a shoe STOP! Visualize this image for a moment, and then move on. THREE rhymes with TREE, so visualize a frog in a tree or a tree frog STOP! Visualize this image for a moment, and then move on. FOUR rhymes with DOOR, word #4 is cow, so picture a cow stuck in a door or something like that, STOP! Visualize this image for a moment, and then move on. FIVE rhymes with HIVE, like a bee hive, so visualize a ninja fighting bees or something. Okay, #5 is the last ex. I am going to explain, you should be able to figure out your own images for the rest.

As my high school physics professor always said... "Memorizers Die" :P
Unless they are in law school :p
Even then. If you just memorize without applying context, the information will be useless in your future. It might just get you through a test tomorrow though.

well its not useful forever but more for short grocery lists and other simple things (like the class you hate and see no need for, but have to take to graduate)
