question

Question of the day

What's the most pointless mnemonic you've ever had to learn?

I think mine is HOMES, because seriously, what upper Midwestern kid can't remember the Great Lakes without a five-letter word? But then there's also PAY HERB Czechs, and that's pretty useless, because who needs to remember the Warsaw Pact countries these days? I also never liked that East Germany just got E and they couldn't come up with anything for C and so went with Czechs.
