# Memory

This is the Derren Brown Method of remembering numbers:

First we give each number 0 – 9 a consonant

• 0 = z/s (z is in zero and s is similar sound to z)
• 1 = l (L  – they look similar)
• 2 = n (two downstrokes in n)
• 3 = m (three downward strokes in m)
• 4 = r (fou”r”)
• 5 = f / v (‘f’ i ‘v’ e – f and v sound similar)
• 6 = b / p (b looks like 6 and p sounds similar to b)
• 7 = T (7 looks a bit like a T)
• 8 = ch / sh / j (eight – the gh sound is like the ch j sound)
• 9 = g (looks similar when witten)

So in order to use lear a few numbers you put the letters together then fill in vowels. For example Derren Brown relates a story where he needed to learn room numbers for his assistant and make up artist. His assistant, coops I remember was NoSe MaTt – (I’m just doing this as I remember it) the number was 2037 – but he just remembers him welcoming him over a nose mat, the make up girl was remembered with LiVe MouSe – which was 1530… simples.

To make this system even better, he next he takes these numbers and beefs them out to make each one be a word:

• 0 = z/s = zoo
• 1 = l – ale
• 2 = n = hen
• 3 = m = ham
• 4 = r = whore
• 5 = v / f  = hive
• 6 = b/p = bee
• 7 = t = tea
• 8 = ch/sh/j = shoe
• 9  = g = goo

Then to get to double digits you use combine the numbers:

• 10 = l,s =  lice
• 11 = l,l = lilly
• 12 = l,n = line
• 13 = l, m = lime
• 14 = l,r = lorry
• 15 = l, v/f = laugh
• 16 = l , p/b = lip
• 17 = l,t = light
• 18 = l,ch/sh/j = ledge (just cons it’s easier to think of than latch)
• 19 = l,g = leg

• 20 = n,s/z = nose
• 21 = n,l =  nail
• 22 = n, n = nun
• 23 = n,m = gnome
• 24 = n, r = nero • 25 = n, f/v = knife
• 26 = n, p/b = nob
• 27 = n, t = knight
• 28 = n, ch/sh/j = notch
• 29 = n, g = nag

• 30 = m,z/s = moss
• 31 = m,l = mail
• 32 = m,n = money
• 33 = m,m = mum
• 34 = m,r = merry
• 35 = m,v /f =  muff
• 36 = m,b /p = map
• 37 = m,t = mat
• 38 = m,ch/sh/j = match
• 39 = m,g = mag

• 40 =  r,s/z =rose
• 41 = r,l = rail
• 42 = r,n =rain
• 43  = r,m = ram
• 44 = r,r = roar
• 45 = r,v/f = rave
• 46 = r,b/p = rape
• 47 = r,t = rat
• 48 = r,ch/j/sh = retcg
• 49 = r,g =rag

• 50 = v/f,s/z =fuse
• 51 = v/f,l = fall
• 52 = v/f,n =fan
• 53 = v/f,m = fume
• 54 = v/f,r = fair
• 55 = v/f,v/f = faff = Jim Murray
• 56 = v/f,b/p =
• 57 = v/f,t = vat
• 58 = v/f,ch/sh/j =
• 59 = v/f,g =

• 60 = bus
• 61 = bull
• 62 = bun
• 63 = bum
• 64 = boar
• 65 = beef
• 66 = Bob (and Jan)
• 67 = Bite
• 68 = B
• 69

• 70
• 71
• 72
• 73
• 74
• 75
• 76
• 77
• 78
• 79
• 80

• 84
• 85
• 86
• 87
• 88
• 89
• 90
• 91
• 92
• 93
• 94
• 95 = g,f/v = goofy • 96
• 97
• 98
• 99
• 100
• 110 LLS lollys

• 140 = l, r, z/s = LauRenSe
• 150 = l, f/v, z/s = loaves
• 160 = l, b/p, z/s = Lambs

Well anywaaaaaay….

I want to use this system somehow to remember the paeds values in the traffic light system.

The ones to remember are:

• respiratory: Amber:  6-12 months, more than 50 breaths a minute
• Respirartory: Amber: more than 12 months, more than 40 breaths a minute
• Respiratory: Red: More than 60 breaths a minute
• Respirartory: Amber: Oxygen sats less than 95%
• Circulation / hydration: Amber ; less than 12 month, more than 160 beats
• Circulation / hydration: Amber: 12 -24 months, more than 150beats
• Circulation / hydration: Amber: 2 – 5 years more than 140 beats
• Cap refil > 3seconds
• Temp, 3-6months > 39C
• Temp more than 5 days
• Less than 3 months temp of more than 38C

Breathing: Mark Williams (mindfullness = breath)
