You learn something new every day, whether or not you realize it right away. There are no exceptions to this rule.

Today I learned the difference between bowler hats, pork pie hats and fedoras. Before today, they were all just fedoras to me. It never occurred to me that all three of these different hat styles had different names.

I also learned that Roseanne is Jewish, and that gummy shot glasses exist.

It doesn't have to be anything life-changing or significant or anything, just something that you learned. So AG, I ask you now, what did you learn today?

Has there ever been a more delicious rug in all of existence?

Oh, so by "there aren't any mods" you mean they're all inactive.

That's a slight improvement over last year, when all except one or two of them were busy. :P

Nah. I prefer communism over anarchy.

I learned that only my right eye is sensitive to the sun. If the sun is in my eyes, instead of squinting both of them, I can just close the right one and leave the left one in the standard open position.

(squinting gives me a headache)

I'd believe staring in the sun is not good for your eye, even if it isn't sensitive, Ernie

Anyways, I learned that my new shoes are nailproof. Otherwise I would have a hole in my foot right now.

I left you the last one, well... half of it! *grin*

As for me... today I learned (call me a noob, thank you) that you can perform a website page search for a certain word by using 'Ctrl+F'! Something I never knew or learned in all those years of surfing! (O.o)

Thanx to the creator of this thread! Thanx Ernie! =)

You can also build a castle out of Starburst pieces.

Unfunny images aside, I learned that Christopher Lee holds the Guinness world record for most film roles by a single actor. I also didn't know that he's 90 years old and 6'5".

Well, that was an interesting experience! I posted a heart emoticon, but it picked it up as the beginning of an HTML tag so it deleted the rest of my message! So I guess I just learned not to post heart emoticons in the forums! =P

What were you saying about that empty counter top?

Little to none, school doesn't really teach me much. More repetition and practice of one topic from a week ago. Although, at Robotics Club, I learned how to make an H-Bridge. After many errors and faulty equipment nonetheless.

How did you do that??

Stalin was picked the next year, and AGAIN in 1942... probably because he had a manlier mustache!
