I learned that you can't have 4 guys with a basketball each, throw at the net at the same time. Its a mess, basketballs bouncing everywhere.

You're supposed to wait until the guy you voted for loses the election and then you kick the nearest crate and yell darn this democracy sucks! :P

TIL riding a horse for real is very different from riding a horse who walks the same trail three hundred times a year for several years. Suddenly technique really matters.

Today... well, it was yesterday, but I guess it doesn't matter.
I learned that having a degree in Chemistry doesn't necessarily mean you know something about Chemistry. Dedicated to my lovely boss who almost used anhydride acetic instead of anhydrous acetic acid to do a test.

I'll be sure to do that the next time I vote for an actual person. This election was only held to "elect" a new proposition for the city I live in. I doubt that anyone will get worked up enough if the proposition passes and they have to pay higher taxes to kick a crate, but I guess there are some things I've yet to see rich people do.

Today (while pared with an event about a month ago) I learned that my school district will be hasty to cancel after school / outside org. activities for the smallest reasons but not even care if their's 2 feet of snow and black ice infested roads to cancel school -.- (I live in Delaware by the way)

I also learned that Driving with my mom at night while it's raining has a 100% guarantee of coming out with a head ache after all the yelling (she's afraid of everything while on the road)

What would the equation have read if that had happened? Organic chem was a long time ago for me...

TIL that the New England Journal of Medicine publishes many of their full articles for free, thus I now have a large stack of paper to "read" tomorrow, at "study group".

That when I think I do really well in Physics I still do just pretty bad. Studied so much for it too.
