 Phrenic nerve: C3,4,5...keeps the diaphragm alive

(C3,4,5 are the spinal levels supplying the phrenic nerve, which innervates
the diaphragm.  Breathing ceases when these spinal levels are damaged. We
were given this by one of our med profs.)

From: David Winsemius <dwinsemius#NoSpam.attbi.com>

C-3-4-5; keeps you breathing and alive
L-2-3-4; keeps the shit up off the floor.

Gene Aidan Johnson <gaj3#NoSpam.po.cwru.edu> gives a correction:
Its not L-2-3-4 its   S-2-3-4 keeps your shit off the floor. 

L-2-3-4 goes to the lumbar plexus, Sciatic nerve, Obturator and other
fucking nerves like that.

 She was all gal (ALGAL) and he was a fun guy (FUNGI).  They took a likin'
(LICHEN) to each other.
  In order to remember that LICHEN are made up of ALGAE and FUNGI (it's
better spoken).

 a nice mnemonic will allow you to remember whether as nerve is sensory (S)
, motor (M) or both (B). Each word of this 12 word sentence correspond to
the cranial nerve of the same number:

 I finally came up with one for remembering the order in which amino acids
come off of an ion-exchange column following complete peptide digestion.
The first sentence is what comes off and in what order, the second sentence
are the four acids that require other methods to detect.

"Drugs that Sara effortlessly pushes grant another very mellow illusion;
let your favorite heroes kill racists.  No quitters can win"

Each word begins with the one letter abbreviation of the respective amino

D Aspartate T Threonine S Serine E Glutamate P Proline G Glycine A Alanine
V Valine M Methonine I Isoleucine L Leucine Y Tyrosine F Phenylalanine H
Histidine K Lysine R Arginine

Followed by:

N Asparagine Q Glutamine C Cysteine W Tryptophan

How about the 9 essential Amino Acids for Humans..(for you old guys, you're
right there used to be 8!)  . 

 "I love lysine though Val thinks his meth's preferable..."

isoleucine, leucine, lysine, threonine, valine, tryptophan, histidine,
methionine, phenylalanine.

(a tragic reference to the imbibition of methylated spirits or rubbing
alcohol by those retired profs we refer to as "rubbies"....)

Here is a story I made up to remember the path of blood flow through the heart.

Right Atrium >> Right Ventricle >> lungs for oxygen pick up >> Left Atrium
>> Left Ventricle >> through body for oxygen distribution >> back to Right

A resident assistant (RA) at a California college decided he was sick of
his job, so he rented an RV.  He stopped at the gas station to fill up,
then traveled to Los Angeles (LA), Las Vegas (LV), then all around the
country.  Finally sick of his road trip, he returned to his job as an RA.
