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?

The archive.org has been revamped. I think they did it to make the site more tablet user friendly.

I was browsing the texts section and I found these very old newspapers.
The oldest I found is from 1888.

I know most people don't give a crap about these but I find them fascinating History wise.

There's a lot of good stuff on that site. They also have music, software, retro games a time machine for the Web.

I spend a lot of time there along with Wikipedia and AG.

I learned that there is a big test going on in math soon. If I don't pass it, I have to take it over and over again, because then I won't graduate until I do.

Yay...

Also we learned new music in band, but who cares?

I learned that the forums on this site have been quite slow recently and therefore I have realized that I didn't miss much in my absence, sadly. Good to be back, though.
