Default Which FA Mnemonics do you actually find useful?

Personally, I feel that a lot of them are just try too hard. A Mnemonic, just for the sake of finding a Mnemonic, lol.

I just can't imagine memorizing some of them. Sometimes, it feels like more effort to memorize the Mnemonic more than the Material itself!!!



So having said that, lets list some Mnemonics from FA, which you actually found useful. The funny thing about this, is that the one's I find useful, are the one's I've used a lot in Med School, so it's become ingrained to the point I don't need them anymore!

I guess I'll start a list with two of my favorites...

Pure As Gold
Cut The Pie

The one ill never forget is "Qiss (kiss) and qiq (kick) till you're siq (sick) of sqs (super qinky sex)" (for G-protein linked 2nd messengers pg. 231)

Was just casually reading over FA and this came out of nowhere!
