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?

Russia is the world's top producer of raspberries.

This is the kind of trivia I appreciate.

I learned about Leibniz's Rule, how to determine which quadric surface a formula represents using traces, and that you should always let a phone menu recording list all options at least once before you select an option.

I learned, for the 100th time, that when you play 5 hours of video games in a day by yourself after a long week of doing nothing, you feel like a horrible person.

I learned that moving to a new house is hard

It's fun and annoying at the same time. Everything is in a box somewhere and the entire house is full of boxes for at least a month. xD
