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?

Today, I relearned Fibonacci and Geometric sequences for my presentation tomorrow. My course has nothing to do with math, I don't know why I'm doing this.

I learned this.
This is freaking amazing! I hope I'm not a very old and half senile man when they actually start building a spaceship in space.

@akshobhya It's generally regarded as one of the worst games ever made.

@09philj, it is regarded as the worst, on what basis?

@akshobhya The Xbox 360 version has a Metacritic score of 19/100. That's the highest scoring version. It has variously been described as a "Hideous, slapped-together action game saturated with poor, nonsensical design choices," " the worst video game I’ve played within this console generation," and "an offensive abomination of a game." Ben Croshaw of the Escapist refused to rank it as the worst game of 2013 on the grounds that it was a "congealed failure" rather than a game, and thus instead gave it a "Lifetime Achievement Award for Total Abhorrence."

Russia banned memes, probably after that one video of Putin loudly singing "I AM GAY, GAY, GAY, I LIKE LONG BIG [roosters]" with flashing colors got out. Or it could've been any of the other memes with Putin on them, who knows.
Edit: Here's the video in case you were wondering. Though it's been extended to five minutes for some reason.
