So easy!

Isaac Asimov proposed this mnemonic for a famous constant:

How I want a drink, alcoholic, of course, after the heavy lectures involving quantum mechanics!

Count the letters in each word and you’ll get 3.14159265358979.

Umm.. we need to remember certain things..and in the same way need to forget certain things too. But is that so easy?

    Oh! This I showed to my friend, the mnemonic… and it took him so long to get it, poor guy! 😀 In his defence, it was late in the night, but still… 😀 Thank you for this.. it has given me (and him.. though he won’t admit it..!) the laughs I needed!
