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 started reading up on Critical Thinking again, I took it last sem, but I regret not taking it 100% seriously.

I learned that the only reason my mom would care if I killed myself is that she's invested some money in me, and she's not about to let it go to waste.

Before you freak out, I'm not planning on killing myself, but we ended up having a...loud conversation earlier. In which we yelled. Threats were made. I think the neighbors are worrying right now.

I learned that some people will never change and will exaggerate the one time you mentioned one thing as if you talk about it all the time. Then these same people will find out your real name and post it publicly.

This is why I like AG. No one pulls that garbage here.

I learned that I can leave twenty minutes late and encounter heavy traffic and still only be three minutes late to class, which is only about eight minutes later than usual. I don't know how that happened. I just don't.

I learned most of the things you guys did just now. Only because I read the comments haha. But I learned that reading all and I mean ALL the comments takes along time. I didn't read all the comments Im just saying that. LIVE LONG AND PROSPER

I learned that when making a polar plot in MATLAB, you have to input theta in radians...which makes sense. I'm lame for not realizing it sooner.

Today I learned that a person you've known a long time can have a hidden side which you never knew about up till now... stuff that can ruin a friendship... being honest works on the long term, going behind someone's back crashes eventually... head on!

That people view the color of a dress more important than the death of a famous actor.

A lot of people will remember Leonard Nimoy because he was the original Spock and it's also for his interpretation of the character that people love Mr. Spock.

According to someone I haven't talked to for a while, male echidnas have weirdly shaped genitals. Of course, I'm not going to search this to verify it, since I don't want to look at echidna genitals.

I learned that I probably shouldn't make little things big deals.
(Look on the bright side, Matt. We now have our first major event of 2015 happening right before us!)
Then again, I should've realized that it was a just a joke.
