It is an old thread, but found interesting

walker wrote:
35 words: ~1 min.

pear, car, church, mixer, notebook, parachute, cheese, luster, chief, Sun, bug, hair, water, house, cat, MBA, brick, elephant, death, library, hole, book, dean, dinosaur, soldier, cherry, shop, bus, window, rat, ball, food, iPod, salary, table.

minimize the window with the post and write out all words in the same sequence....

Yes i did, got all correct, and am here to share my logical connection of story..

A pear went in a car to a church, there is a mixer inside the church, the mixer is on a notebook , the notebook has a picture of a parachute, a man in the parachute eating cheese, that lusters, the man is a chief ( in army may be), he sees a sun so bright, he feels a big bug is crawling on the sun, the bug's hair is clearly visible, at the end of the hair is a water droplet, that water droplet dropped down to earth and shatterd a house, a cat ran out of the house in fear, which has a medal with MBA, stands on a brick, an elephant crushes the brick and the cat, cat dies- death and burried near by a library , a shelf in the library has a big hole , when looked in to the hole there is a book, when turned the first page, my college dean appears, he turns in to dinosaur , the dinosaur runs in a field with so many soldiers, one of the soldier is eating a cherry, the same cherry is sold in a shop, while a bus crashes the window of the shop, all rats in the shop runs , while one of it slids over a rolling ball( as jerry does), it sees a delicious food, the food is a picture found in my ipod, bought on my first salary, that got in hand over a table from my boss. I even typed it again without referring.

the technique used is associative memory technique, memory pegs can also be used for this.

I remembered 19 but I couldnt repeat them in my head, I could only write them down, a pic of the word would just pop in my head and then I would write it down, is that weird?
anyway interesting technique.

Once there was a PEAR who drove his own CAR and went to CHURCH and on his return one day got crushed in a MIXER and came out as a NOTEBOOK and landed on the floor with a PARACHUTE where he got eaten by a giant CHEESE which had LUSTER and who was the CHIEF of the SUN kingdom and he ruled over the BUGS with long HAIR and his kingdom was surrounded by WATER in which his HOUSE floated...
