A mnemonic device (pronounced "neh-mon-ik") is a memory aid. Commonly met mnemonics are often verbal, something such as a very short poem or a special word used to help a person remember something, particularly lists, but may be visual, kinesthetic or auditory. Mnemonics rely on associations between easy-to-remember constructs which can be related back to the data that is to be remembered. This is based on the principle that the human mind much more easily remembers spatial, personal, surprising, sexual or humorous or otherwise meaningful information than arbitrary sequences.
and here a very beautiful and long mnemonic called the Cadaeic Cadenza which encodes the first 3834 digits of the number π = 3 . 1 4 1 5 9 2 6 5 3 5 .... such


Quote:
One / A Poem / A Raven / Midnights so dreary, tired and weary, ....
3 . 1 4 1 5 9 2 6 5 3 5 ....


While in this example each word is the same number of letters as the next digit of pi, some sections use words of more than ten letters as a one followed by another digit:

.... And fear overcame my being the fear of "forevermore". ....
.... 3 4 8 2 5 3 4 2 11 ....


where 11 represents two consecutive digit "1"s in π.
that

Quote:
a word of N letters represents
  • the digit N if N<10
  • the digit 0 if N=10, and
  • two adjacent digits if N>10
    (e.g., a 12-letter word represents the digit '1' followed by '2')

So, a poster gives a number (a birthday, lucky number, historical date, the first some digits of some mathematical/physical/whatever constant, ....or just what turns out if you randomly hack on the number keys on your keyboard), at least 3 digits long I'd say, and the next poster poetry-encodes that number according to the above rules and gives a new number.

Examples:


(.....)


5448
---------------------------------------
green eyes with stubbles


101
---------------------------------------
O bronchitis o!


3.3166
---------------------------------------
One man, a docker, uprose.

(....)



First number is
