Imagine looking at $/ and meaning to use $\, talk about subtle

I used to have trouble remembering these until I read somewhere about thinking about them like funnels -- just mentally remove the "S" from the "$".

|/ is a funnel *in* ($/) |\ is a funnel *out* ($\)

That doesn't change your point about subtle -- it's just the mnemonic I picked up somewhere.
