Walter’s Mnemonics – 115

Fringe - 115 Inner Child | Walter's Lab Notes | Posted by Scully

In Walter’s lab notes this week, he mentions several mnemonics.  After some quick Googling, I was able to find the meaning of some of them…

- Every good boy does fine.

music; mnemonic for the lines of the treble clef – (FACE!) – spaces

- Please excuse my dear Aunt Sally.

Order of Operations: Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication, Division,Addition, Subtraction.

- Three point one four, pick your clothes off the floor.

3.14 is Pi

Unfortunately, I had no luck finding any meaning for the others.  Does anyone have any ideas for these ones…

- See the dog jump around in a circle.

- My goodness but eating hot nachos causes pain.

    •See the dog jump around in a circle: Regarding this one, i found an almost identical one [excepting for the A of Around] which reads [on its entirety]: “See The Dog Jump In A Circle. Leave Her Home To Entertain Every Visitor Here”, which stands for
    {State, Treasury, Defense, Justice, Interior, Agriculture, Commerce, Labor, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Transportation, Energy, Education, Veteran’s Affairs, Homeland Security}. All government departments.

    •My Goodness but eating hot nachos causes pain: Countries of Central America from north to south [Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama]

    Amazing Di…I never would of thought of checking Government and Countries, I was concentrating on math and science mnemonics. Thanks for that.
