THE ART OF MEMORY

Mnemonics is an art of memory. It is an easy-to-remember structure which can be mapped to the original data that is usually harder or bulky to memorise. This methodology is prevailing throughout the world, particularly among students (As they need to memorise a lot, temporarily).

Every Engineer is familiar with "B. B. ROY of Great Britain had a Very Good Wife" - the first-letter mnemonic for color code to indicate the numeric value of tolerance bands (Black, Brown, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Violet, Grey, and White) in electronic components.

Wikipedia shares a peculiar mnemonic to remember the 7 layers (Application, Presentation, Session, Transport, Network, Data Link, Physical) of the OSI Model in Computer Networks - "A Pussy So Tight No Dick Penetrates" (Unfortunately, we didn't used this in our college).

There lies at least one mnemonic in everybody's life. It seems that the biggest asset of human race is forgetfulness. If this is the case, then why NOT thinking of a mnemonic for TEN COMMANDMENTS written by THE GOD? Here is one (I am NOT sure whether MOSES used this or not).


"One idle damn Sunday, Dad killed cheating thief and lied to cover it."

JESUS!
