Google Mnemonics

Creates mnemonics from website text
  [vote for,

Lets say you have to memorize something for a test and there are 20 parts. Mnemonics will help, but the current mnemonics generators on the web go like this (for example) Adj -Adj -Adj-Adj -Adj -Noun -Verb -Adj -Adj -Adj -Adj -Adj-Noun. I.e. Silly Ridiculous fearful trees eat angry monstrous robotic parts. Still pretty hard to memorize. It would be easier if you put in the first letters of the terms you would like to memorize and google searched for actual paragraphs of text that had the same first letters.

       That'd probably be better as a mashup web app, using perhaps Google API, but not run by Google itself. Or Bing.

       ...or better yet as a user driven site.

       I suspect that this sounds plausible but is impossible in practicality. For example, there' a mnemonic to remember which is X and which is Y. Would this ever actually turn up in the entire corpus of everything written by anyone anywhere ever:
"Wise up, X is a cross."

       That is an unusual example, [Ian]. I like this idea, even though I hate and avoid mnemonics.

       //even though I hate and avoid mnemonics// is that a mnemonic?

       More like a clichë. I avoid clichês like the plague.

       I wish you hadn't said that, [Ian] - I try to avoid the plague like the plague.
