Wired is running a story about a University of Washington biology lecturer,
Greg Crowther, who sings lectures. From the article: 'Crowther bursts
into song to the melody of Sugar Sugar, the bubble-gum '60s tune - "Glucose,
ah sugar sugar / You are my favorite fuel from the
bloodborne substrate pool / Glucose -- monosaccharide sugar -- you're sweeter
than a woman's kiss / 'cause I need you for glycolysis."' In
college I used many different types of devices to help memorize information like
this. Crowther has a page
where you can download samples. Among my favorites are
The Krebs Cycle and Come On Down (The Electron Transport Chain)."
I've never been canoeing before, but I imagine there must be just a few
simple heuristics you have to remember...
Yes, don't fall out, and don't hit rocks.
