Mnemonic

Howard Schamest, FCD writes:

Richard,
In talking about evolution with my 9 year old niece, who, like so many American kids wants a "hip" jargonized mnemonic to remember, I suggested she say: Chucky D and the Big E. Where previously she was vague about the name Charles Darwin and the term evolution, she now proudly and enthusiastically tells her friends about Chucky D and the Big E.

Perhaps other FOCD

Buy my book: On the Moor: Science, History and Nature on a Country Walk
“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
