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 someone who I hoped I never saw again, someone I haven't talked to since he was held back in 5th grade, is joining marching band next year. Even worse he's a trumpet which is my section.

I'm going to give him such a hard time.

One of the students at the local catholic school set the toilets on fire. No real harm done, except to the people who were taking their As level exams at the time had to sit and wait for eight minutes until the alarm turned off before they were allowed to resume.

I learned that I got a pass+ in that three section test. It's great I passed but I want to know what the + means.

I learned my grandfather worked as a dairy manager for much of his working life. At his funeral. I never asked what he used to do. I kind of wish I had now.

Try to do a 180 degrees with your bike while hitting the side of your knee on it and tell me how it feels. I did it twice and every time I saw black with 100 light bugs flying around me and couldn't move my leg for 15 minutes.

If you want to remaine friwndly with someone you work with, there are 3 things you should never apoarch:
1) Music: Danielo put 'working class hero' on his phone; Dude:"what is this bad song? Its so slow and boring"; Danielo: *hit him with his dogtags; Dude:"Ouch. Please stop. Nooo".
2) political/social opinions: Dudess: "Im not racist but...; Danielo:"Im sure you are not, so lets keep it that way and please shut the heaven up".
3) Start a prank war with an unstable person: Episode A: Danielo hide ThisGuy charger by sticking it on the celling with ducktape. Episode B: ThisGuy scream for straight 15 minutes in my ear in a squicky voice, not even breathing. Episode C: Danielo hit him with his dogtags, ThisGuy cry and go snitch to his officer. Episode D: Danielo has charges on being a evil bully. yeay.

I learned that there's a user, @sploder666, with a friends list that goes on for 70 pages. You think your social life is hectic.
