Online Games to Improve Vocabulary

Almost everyone online plays a game or two (or even more) to relax or enjoy. Most are a waste of time. What I’d like to spend my time on would be games that can be relaxing or enjoyable, at the same time educational.

Word games fall in that category.

Among those I’ve tried, Scrabble by Mattel is the best, followed by Words with Friends. However, the latter does not load on my tablet so I can only play it when using the PC. The good thing about the former, it’s just like the real board game.

How to Memorize Pi Digits

I am not a fan of Math. I am good with what I need. I never thought of memorizing the pi digits following the decimal point since I have no need for it.

However, I am a fan of codes. I like cryptograms. I have developed my own ciphers just for the fun of it. I also wanted to be able to freely write in public without anyone being able to read my notes.

Memorizing is also not one of my strong points. I do create systems so I can figure things out.

Some months ago I was able to recall the first 300 digits of pi in just 2 days. So I know my system works. I did not, however, continue and follow through to store it in my long term memory. Again, I have no need for it. If you have a need for it, you can try my system and experience how it works fir you.

First, take note that A is 1, and Z is 26.

Next, the images that you pick/choose for your characters should be easily imagined. Tangible.

Then, make your story sequential. In a series. No parallel stories.

Be imaginative. You should be able to go as far as your imagination flows.

You can combine 2 numbers (20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26) or you can separate them (1-9). As for standalone zeroes, you can use “nothing” or “null” or “void” or “zero” but you will have to give it extra effort. A 10 (J) or a 20 (T) will be easy.

You just have to assign a charater image for whatever number is in the sequence. You can automatically use 3.14 as “pi” so that you just concentrate on the succeeding numbers.
