A grammatical mnemonic

In this world there are many otherwise intelligent people who suffer an extraordinary mental defect:
Namely, the inability to differentiate between the words affect and effect.
Were I a drug-smuggler I would consider having some memory-enhancing steroid trafficked
In order to help these unfortunates remember when to use effict and when to use affict.

And I'll post a full update of my adventures when I've had time to write them up, and when I've escaped from the bicycle shop I'm being held prisoner in.

And if you cannot grasp the nuance,
It's prob'ly best to use "influence".
