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?

How to blend in at Walmart.

1 - Don't shower or bathe for a week.
2 - Have greasy hair.
3 - Wear flip flop or sandals with long dirty toe nails.
4 - If you're a girl, wear pale sweatpants so we can see the stain near the butt hole.
5 - If your fat, wear your shirt as tight as possible so the skin hangs down all over.
6 - If you're a guy, wear a dirty and greasy undershirt with yellowed arm pits.

That's it.

Might of been yesterday, but I learned that my mental age was 37. I had guessed 36. And that if I were to spend eternity with a vampire, it should be Edward. And that I'm steak and eggs, as a breakfast food.
...
thanks buzzfeed.

I learned about the Aberdare MegaAvalaugh charity downhill bike race, in which people descend some rather steep hills on wholly inappropriate bicycles.

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.
