Comment It's just as important as colonizing Mars... (Score 2) 73

The thin layer of atmosphere may prove defense-less against threats like Gamma Ray Burts, and colonizing Mars won't save us from them.

Comment A book full of mnemonics: (Score 1) 237

Titled "Chinese Characters: Learn & Remember 2,178 Characters", by Alan Hoenig, and yes, I use memorization software both SuperMemo and Anki, yet I still recommend this wonderful book. It gets you on the right track by offering the characters in the order of increasing graphical complexity, in a way that nearly each following character can be constructed from the preceding characters as its building blocks,... and it does so by providing sufficiently short yet effective mnemonics.
