How to Remember Planets by Size

Learn how to remember planets by size in this Howcast video about memory techniques featuring memory expert Barry Reitman.


My name is Barry Reitman. I'm the author of "Secrets, Tips and Tricks of a Powerful Memory," I'm going to discuss how to remember the planets by size. Let me tell you a Little story. My friend Freddie, kind of a hip guy. You know everything is, "Hey, my man. How you doin', my man?" And I'm, "Okay, how are you, my man?" We go back and forth like that and one day he said to me, "Hey, my man, I'm about to meet my girlfriend's parents for the first time." I said, "That's very good Freddie." And he said, "I'm worried. I'm worried for two reasons. She's told me about her father, he's a scientist. He knows things, he studies the planets. I don't know what to say, and I don't know what to say about my politics because, you know, some parents are kind of tricky. My man, I'm worried. I'm worried, my man." And I said here's the answer to both questions, my man. Just say you never even voted, my man. Just say you never even voted, my man." Just, Jupiter, say, Saturn, you, Uranus, never, Neptune, even, Earth, Voted, Venus, my man, Mars Mercury and there are the planets in order of size." It works.
