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 that two iconic voices in rock and roll have passed away recently... Ben E. King, original singer of "Stand By Me"... and Jack Ely, the lead singer of the Kingsmen, who were most famous for the tune "Louie Louie". Their contributions to music will not be forgotten!

I learned that people still subscribe to my Youtube channel, but very few people actually comment on my uploads. I guess I attract more reclusive visitors, but I can't be picky if all I ever upload are in-game videos from early-2000s roller coaster simulators.

I learned that during long tests where they make you use #2 pencils, I begin to devour the wood of the pencil. Light yellow Ticonderoga pencils are the best for gnawing on. The paint doesn't flake into your mouth.

Don't do that, by the way.

It's very hard to stick a straw down a cat's throat. But the benefit of doing that is that you can blow into the straw and inflate the lungs if you've got the ribs away. Very exciting.

I learned that organic food is not a scam, there's actually a difference.
I bought some organic bananas because the regular ones were already yellow.
To my surprise, they lasted an entire week instead of turning brown in 2 days like the cheap ones.

I also bought some carrots and I noticed a difference in the taste. They actually tasted slightly sweeter than the normal ones who always have a bitter aftertaste .
