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 when you need to evict a skunk from your premises, you should utilize your powers of persuasion rather than force.

I learned that the dress I bought from a store several months ago [and then stored at the back of my closet because I don't yet have anything to wear with it] is not actually blue. It's green. I don't know how I ever thought it was blue. It is very clearly green.

Who knows, maybe the US government is already using the idea with Windows 10!

That's a scary thought.

Warner Bros. sues “HD Fury” over boxes that can copy 4k video

Yep, another attempt by the entertainment mafia ( this time it's Warner Bros.) to ruin our freedom.

I wish I had known about this device because I would have bought one.
Can you imagine the quality of the picture when capturing a video still?

I learned that Hayao Miyazaki came out of retirement, which was especially surprising to me because I thought that he'd died.
