How did 23-year-old Ed Cooke really train to become the U.S. Memory Champion in less than a year? He’s a pervert! Learn it, people. Associate your most “bizarre and debauched mental images” with your target data and presto pervo! You will remember. Got a card deck to memorize? Fantasize about each of those dirty little whore cards. Turn your pin number into “elaborate sexual configurations.” The more fetishistic, the better. Albeit, don’t go whining if the winding road of your imagination leads you to “uncomfortable places.” Be a champ!
