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?

Definitely! I've been trying to find as many oldie profiles as I can and most of them have disappeared without a trace...

There are faster ways to put snow blowers together. The night before it took me forever, but tonight I breezed right through them.

Today I learned that if I overload my trash cans' max weight by 200 or so pounds, the trash truck that collects them will not be able to handle the weight of the cans and will drop them inside its cavernous belly, drive away with my cans, and leave me with nowhere to dispose of all of my garbage.

Why didn't I purchase a beard comb sooner? It arrived yesterday and has made so much of a difference already; it glides through my beard effortlessly, doesn't cause frizz, and allows me to style it perfectly!

@SSTG Personally I would have referred to the flowchart first before resorting to percussive maintenance.

Today I learned how to install infared floor lights in a car (my car). Now all I have to do is flip a switch and the bottom interior of my car lights up with infared light. I have an alternate daytime lighting system that is too bright to use at night. It's a bright ultravioletish blue neon floorboard illuminating system. So I have infared for nighttime and and neon blue for daytime! It cost a bit of money (I paid extra for the premium lights that were $40 each and I used a lot of wiring material), but it was totally worth it.
