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?

A new "neologism".

Made by a waetherman... instead of "band of cloud" he used "rain-banger (rain-sausage)"

Today I was working out at a gym and was putting weight plates on an Olympic bar. I learned that if I put on the clip that holds the plates in place on upside down (it's almost the same upside down, but there's a tiny gap that lets the plates rattle a little bit) some crazy middle aged dude that doesn't work there will come over from across the gym, correct my terrible mistake, scold me for "doing it wrong", punch me in the chest, and then walk away.

I've found an amazing local barber - he owns and is the sole barber of his shop, it's clean and well-maintained, and he has a ton of experience with hair.
I just need to get this lawn on top of my head under control, and I refuse to go to a "salon" or big franchise.

I can only see game comments when I am not logged in. It is not a browser issue after all.

Straight Outta Compton

I'm actually sitting in the theater right now and about to watch it. Heeellll yeeeaahhh!

Today I learned that my 1 1/2 year old computer is completely broken. The CPU has tapped out for good according to the Geek Squad. ): I'll be browsing AG on mobile from now on. I have lost hundreds of hours of gaming progress, but I was smart enough to frequently back up all of my files.
