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 Maryland still thinks snow and any form of winter weather is some kind of Mosaic plague sent from God to destroy us or something. We might get snow. Close everything and wish for a swift death.

Note: Mosaic means &quotertaining to the life and time of Moses"

I learned that my school district has a philosophy that is the exact opposite of what Matt just said. Where I live, we're also receiving snow tomorrow, but the most action the district is going to take against this storm (5-8 in) is probably a delayed opening.

I learned that Andrew Jackson effectively terminated the Second Bank of the United States (the most powerful bank in the 1830s, even able to influence Congress). The result was that inflation started which evolved into a depression.
