Mnemonic

Postby Slava » Fri Sep 28, 2012 9:21 pm

I don't remember seeing this one proposed, and it hasn't been done yet, so I thought I'd toss it out there and see if anyone wishes to catch it.

Most often seen in the phrase mnemonic device, it refers to a means of remembering something. As I'm a bit of a wag and like to play with words, and I have a particularly thick skull at times, I like to call such things "pneumatic" devices. I have to drill it into my head, so to speak.
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.

In school mnemonics kept me from many moronic answers!

Care to share? I haven't found it in my attempts.
