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 that the Dutch shipbuilders from the 1500's to 1800's even though they were ahead of the other Europeans in their trade, were not so good at building warships. I was surprised to learn that because I always thought their were masters at everything related to ships.

They came up with the rear rudder though, which was an amazing technological advance. The Mediterranean shipbuilders still used two rudders on each side which caused their ships to be much less maneuverable.

The US constitution is 246 years out of date, according to Thomas Jefferson, who wanted it rewritten from scratch every 19 years.

I learned to always keep a Nerf gun nearby; you never know when a giant, furry, brown spider could crawl across the wall right behind your monitor and scare the [bleep] out of you, and force you to stand on your bed with a Nerf machine gun and wait for the spider to show itself...

It's apparently possible to play a ruler as an instrument.

Oh, also, from the perspective of a person who plays piano, it's really hard to play in a quintet with strings because I'm not used to having other people play with me and it screws me up so badly everything I do sounds horrible.
