    I would watch Rick and Morty but the factory tint setting is always too high and I can't work out how to get the sound to come through my stereo instead of my TV.

    I hate cats

    Did you have an example of an equation you need to memorise? The secret to memorising formulas is to turn them into silly pictures.

    Take for example the Quadratic Equation: ax^2 + bx + c = 0. I would start by picturing an axe-man to represent the 'ax'. His axe would be odd in that the blade is square shaped. This way i would know it was axe squared. I would them imagine a box on his head.This would represent the +bx. Finally I would imagine a cake (cake for C) on the box. This would represent the +C. I would them imagine this axe-men chopping a zero to help me remember that the formula equals 0. This whole scene I would imagine taking place in a quadrangle, that way when I wanted to remember the quadratic equation, all I would need to do is remember my quadrangle and the scene taking place inside.

    This may sound ridiculous but believe it or not this image will stick in your head.
