Oh Be A Fine Girl, Kiss Me Right Now Sweetie

Didn't know that one...

I assume that L=R, T=N and S is something about as hot as a cup of tea?


OBAFGKMLT is one of those things I remember but don't know what the actual letters stand for, other than stars...

Perhaps Camels Ordinarily Sit Down Carefully, Perhaps Their Joints Creak, Prehaps Easing Oil Might Provide Relief is another one... I can just about remember what some of it stands for...

Now I look at it, OBAFGKMLT (or rather, OBAFGKMLT!!?!) looks like something you'd find written in a thirteen year old's livejournal.

It's actually that pout that most makes me want to pat flick on the head.

I suspect that this sort of reaction may prove injurious to my health.


Hmph.

[pokes tongue out]

Bwahahahahahaha! Now I've got him! Damn. Did I say that out loud?

(Deleted comment)
It's the star types in order of brightness, isn't it?

Yeah, but I can't remember what they stand for, or the tempteratures, or anything.

The camel one is geological eras.

It's the classification for stars by temperature, in order from hottest to coolest:

ClassTemperature
O40000K
B20000K
A10000K
F7500K
G5500K
K4500K
M3000K

Yeah... I have a vague memory of programming those into my calculator as constants, which was terribly naughty of me [g].

Oh, and Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain...

And the old favourite "Senior Officers Have Curling Auburn Hair 'Til Old Age"


[thinks]

Nope, don't know that one...

Trigonometric ratios - I only remember it because I had a maths teacher who told us that it was his preferred menmonic, and I couldn't understand why anyone would want to remember anything longer than sohcahtoa.


Yeah - I always just remembered sohcahtoa!

Doh - SOHCAHTOA. Of course...
