Teach Me, TV!
So I've decided that when I don't have time to write lengthy, essay-style posts, I won't just post nothing. I mean, I prefer writing the longer pieces, but it's not always possible, you know?
For now, let me give you my third quickie in less than 24 hours. And I don't mean it like that, dirty.
Anyway... Andrew and I are going to Maine in a few weeks, and I know that the capital of Maine is Augusta. But do you know why I know? Not because of anything I learned in school. No, I know the state capitals because I once decided to memorize the song "Wakko's America" from Animaniacs. This was several years after I had supposedly learned the capitals in elementary school, but the mnemonic device that stuck was the one learned during my wasted middle school afternoons.
So in case you have a hard time remembering things like "Bismarck" or "Frankfurt," just take a few minutes to enjoy the following. It'll change you for the better, just like every cartoon ever made.
