Resistor color code mnemonic

Bad beer rots our young guts but vodka goes well – get some now

The colors are sorted in the order of the visible light spectrum: red
(2), orange (3), yellow (4), green (5), blue (6), violet (7). Black
(0) has no energy, brown (1) has a little more, white (9) has
everything and grey (8) is like white, but less intense.[8]
