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 it is best to correct a person the first time they call you by the wrong name... my band teacher has been calling me the wrong name since the beginning of school now and I feel way too awkward to correct him after all this time...

I learned that bras do not fit me well.


I meant to say boots but apparently I was thinking of something else.

Today I learned that this thread exsisted..I also learned half the references my friend made last year by watching Monty Python finally, and that my math teacher used to have to design missiles or guns or seaworthy turrets that only focus on one spot, and that 'jujufruit' tastes like plastic. Also what nondisjunction was (i forgot just now though), and how to use the pen tool on adobe illustrator.
And that's alll the interesting stuff.....:P

I learned that, when the Tavern is as starved for activity as it is now, a thread can lie dormant for nearly three months and still remain in the 10 most recent pages of the off-topic sub-section of the very forums we know and love.

People said that this forum was desolate and inactive a year ago, but if those same people could see where the Tavern is now, they'd be on their knees praying that early 2012 would never end.

What has happened to this place?

Today I learned Hall of Fame boxer Sugar Ray Robinson backed out of a fight because he had a dream that he was going to kill his opponent in the ring. After a priest and minister convinced Robinson to fight, Robinson went into the ring and killed his opponent, Jimmy Doyle.

You and Skeleton_Pilot left. That is where the problems started. Eventually..it slowly started to die (jumped in activity for a couple weeks, actually).

I tried my best to keep it active..but one man can only do so much (there was a time where my name was in most of the Last Post for a while

I learned that people take RPGs way too seriously here. As in, the ones in the Forum Games, not the actual flash ones.

I learned what a lot of the more recent admins look like in real life. More recent meaning the ones who have entered the picture (no pun intended) since Strop posted that image of his trip to the AG office.

That guy needs to get stop not existing and get back here so the Tavern isn't just some third-world country that everyone wants to leave. He made this place so much more interesting with his enthusiasm and his unconventionally conventional humor.

I wonder what he's up to these days.
