Of course, these are but samples of the kind of knowledge you can have at your instant command. Apply your key words to any situation that requires data remembered for the sake of your career or for the sake of your ego. Practically any factual book you pick up contains a number of related facts you will want to pick out of your mental file just like that—one, two, three, four, five!
And, if you haven't guessed it already, the key words can open up a lot of fun to you. Use them in games, combining profit with pleasure. For instance, in a group, using The World Almanac as a text, each person recites a list slowly, such as the last ten winners of the Kentucky Derby or the Rose Bowl champions for the past fifteen years. Allow thirty seconds for each item. Then the players, excepting the person who propounded the list, try to duplicate the items in correct order. After each person has had his turn saying a list, papers are collected, and scores totaled.
