Here are all of our tips and tricks that help us remember very....uh... important things. Enjoy!
[From Episode 22: Do Not Pass Go]
Chris' own original creation to help you brainiacs out there. USA! USA! USA!
Speech and such are the first rights.
Two: to arms, to arms! Let's fight!
Three's a crowd, you can't stay here.
Four, don't look through my things, dear.

This is complimented with
Six, which says my day in court

Lucky seven means a jury.
Eight is no big deal, don't worry.
We have nine lives and way more rights.
Ten: People and states have equal might.
Remember kids, this isn't truly in order from left to right, rather, it's in the order if you follow the weird S-curve starting from the top most country. And don't forget "E" stands for El Salvador, not Ecuador! Ecuador is in South America!
Baby Godzilla Eats Hotdogs, Not Cocoa Puffs
Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama
Also, this just makes sense. Baby Godzilla would require a meaty diet.
Sure, you might think this is absolutely useless but this comes up in pub trivia ALL. THE. TIME. Which one is what color? Which one has what kind of antenna? Check yourself before you wreck yourself!

Hercules! Hercules! Why is it always 12? That sure makes our jobs harder. But here's a little poem that uses the first two letters to signify the 12 labors of Hercules. A little ridiculous but hopefully handy one day!

V - Vas Deferens
E - Ejaculatory Duct

Well, we got Snap, Crackle, and Pop...but which one's which? The elves are in costumes- the baker, the music bandleader, and the generic elf with the pajama stocking hat. Use this visualization trick to correctly identify the elf:
"GingerSNAPs" - Bakers bake gingersnap cookies so SNAP is the Baker
"POP Music" - Music is related to bandleaders, so POP is the Bandleader
"CRACK of dawn" - CRACKLE is wearing a pajama hat, so he wakes up at the crack of dawn.
HOLY HOMO SAPIEN, BATMAN! Here's our trick of remembering the taxonomy groups in order from large to specific. And you have two equally disturbing ones to choose from:
Kanye, Please Come Over For Great Sex
King Phillip Chases Old Fat Girl Scouts
The taxonomy levels are as follows:
Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species
Most of us know pi is about 3.14 but what about a few digits afterwards? This mnemonic trick is a little different than the usual acronym type. The number of letters in each word corresponds with the digit of pi.
How I wish I could calculate pi.
3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9, 2
This mnemonic lists the Canadian provinces in geographical order from left to right.
