    I never could figure out how memorizing some silly sentence is supposed to make remembering the order of the colors for resistance values easier.

    All you have to remember is that it starts with black and ends in white. The rest of the colors just fall in a logical sequence. I mean, Brown is obviously closer to black in shade than any of the other colors, and Grey is closer to white. As far as the other colors go, you can see what order they should follow by just looking at them.
