  1. “easy”. You just have to first memorize a mapping between numbers and letters, then make up a word from the numbers and remember that (and which letters in that word are significant) and THEN remember a story/picture that includes that word. Easy!


  2. Thorin…exactly what I was thinking! lol

  3. this confused me more than the idea of remembering a hundred digit number.
