    I am pretty good with maps and directions. But I still need to check which hand I write with (right); recite Never Eat Silk Worms; and sing "And in the east, the dawn was breaking"

    EVERY TIME!!

    I was taught Never Eat Soggy Waffles. I wish I heard your version before because I actually ate half a silkworm once.

    Um, IC eating silkworms is gross.

    I was just taught North, South, East & West. I have to mentally place myself at my house to figure out which is which, though.

    That's no fun. Mnemonic devices are awesome. Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally. Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge.

    Agreed!!! I use Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally when doing math :lol:

    I had a geology class in college where we used them.
    IC I have no clue what you are referring to with the Aunt Sally thing

    PEMDAS
    Parentheses. Exponents. Multiplication. Division. Addition. Subtraction.

    helping with homework?
