Random things you remember from school

Recommended Posts

I was talking with my sister last week and we both remember the mnemonics we were forced to come up with in Science lessons to remember the order of the planets. We're 5 years apart so that teacher obviously didn't change their lesson plans much.

Also today I saw the word 'tan' and it caused 'sohcahtoa' to pop into my head, meaning 'sine = opposite / hypotenuse; cosine = adjacent / hypotenuse; tangent = opposite / adjacent'. All I know is that it's something to do with triangles.

I can also give a decent explanation of Escape Velocity and how it relates to black holes, despite not remembering anything else from A Level Physics.

So what random stuff do you remember from school???

*Yes, I know, some of you are still at school. Firstly, you make me sick. Secondly, you know that stuff you are spending countless boring hours learning? You will forget 99.9% of it.

I remember melting glass rods in Bunsen burners and disecting an eye.

Not really. I'm feeling that other thing, like the opposite of happy. I forget the word.

Sadly, I don't have a Russian keyboard to reply to you in Russian. I'm learning Russian, along with some other languages. Sadly, I'm not fluent.
