Sadly, I use that phrase too…but probably only cause I can’t ever get it out of my head!
It’s true. A girl in my psychology class (don’t worry, I’m still in high school) used something like that to remember psychology experiments. For the experiment Raine, Buchsbaum and LaCasse, in which they did PET scans on murderers, she said “Raine = Rain = rain of blood = murderers.” For the experiment by Piliavin, Rodin, and Piliavin, in which they studied people’s reactions to a person passing out in a subway, she said “Rodin = rodin a train = subway.” Yeah, it’s fucking stupid, but hey, it works.
We didn’t NEED to do that (the tests had a keyword from the experiment next to the experimenters’ names), but the point is, that it worked.
There’s nothing wrong with rhyming,
but it’s all about the TIMING.
