Before I joined the army I was an apprentice electronics engineer (apart from a couple of months working in a steel works). In those days electronic components had information about them printed on them. In the case of resistors they had coloured bands around them representing different values. In order to remember the values we had to remember the coloured bands in order of appearance on the component: Black; Brown; Red etc. So the mnemonic went like this:
Bad
Boys
Rape
Our
Young
Girls
But
Violet
Gives
Willingly

All probably pointless now as I am not sure if resistors exist any more in electronic circuits.

I was never really sure how the Grouping system worked. Yes, I understood the O-Gp and R-Gp but I think that this aspect is over rated.

Discuss.

I'd rather not say. It could be viewed as racist and I know how sensitive some people on here can be, particularly FiveAlpha.
