Strong acid mneumonic

I'm having some difficulty memorizing the strong acids for some reason.

Does anybody have any tips or tricks to aid in memorization? Perhaps a mneumonic device?

Or am I going to have to brute-force memorize?

Think of this as BOTH studied AND acquired knowledge. Most chemical laboratories will have 'bench' reagents including bottles of acids and bases. Most of the acids (except acetic) are strong which are on the upper 'bench'. After a few days, you should be able to with nearly no trouble, name each of the bench acids and bases; you will know just from exercise of use and remembering the ones which are on the bench.
