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?

I learned from a Pokedex website that Steelix weighs 881.8 pounds, and I confirmed this Poke-fact through other Pokedex websites.

Can someone explain how 30 feet of solid steel can weigh under 900 pounds while a 13-foot long Toyota Yaris can weigh 2295? =P

I learned that people still don't know that pokemon weights and heights make no sense at all.

I learned again how much I hate email. The hatred is mutual in my case.

Oh, I figured that out the first time I ever looked at a Pokedex... but I still want an explanation, even if I have to fly all the way to Japan to get it. =D

I learned that it's much easier to earn the quests in Crush The Castle Adventures than it is to beat my friends' scores. This is the type of problem you face when you have expert players like @SSTG, @daleks, @kegaumongo, @MrDayCee and @xXxDAPRO89xXx as your friends... =P

Good thing those robots have no arms or they'd never stop texting each other! =P

I learned that Jim Carrey parodied "Ice Ice Baby" on In Living Color back in the early 90's. I wish he was still making movies! That guy is hilarious!
