#2555 - 06/13/00 10:18 PM Re: Memory of words
Loc: Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Speaking of classes at university - in my first year European history class we had a lecturer with a HEAVY middle European accent. She was lecturing us about various medieval papal bulls and at the same time was emphasising the uncertainty and lack of order characteristic of the period. To my shame, I wrote in my notes at one stage a totally incoherent sentence about the 'cows' and the 'bulls' - the 'bulls' bit I'd got right. The 'cows' bit OUGHT to had read 'chaos'! Feeble defence, I know, but she really did have a very thick accent.

I know which I'd rather have...

I remember a mnemonic for two words:
We should not consider the sins of venal individuals as venial.
