I'm memorizing the Gettysburg Address...

...because I think my ethics professor will let me out of the final if I recite it. Click here to enlarge

Thank goodness for youtube. I'm just going to listen to this over and over.

Four Scores and Seven Years ago...I think I know most of it. Is everyone trying to memorize it or is this some sort of weird thing between you and the professor? Click here to enlarge

I memorized Miranda Rights in Spanish so I could get a few measly e.c. points on my final. I listened to it on cd while driving. Click here to enlarge

Good luck!

I had memorize about five poems in sixth grade, including Casey at the Bat. The only one I remember really any of is Kiplings' "If."
