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 to never look straight at one of those Steelix-type beasts in Knightmare Tower. Those dudes are creepy.

I'm surprised I didn't know this before, but today I learned that Jewish people fast on Yom Kippur. I also learned that today was Yom Kippur, and that it's the most important day in the Jewish year.

Lol, why is that scary? xD

I learned today that it's possible to catch a dodgeball under your chin no matter how fast it's going! Since headshots get the thrower out, I only aim as high as the bottom of the neck... but now I see even that can be a dangerous tactic! =P

I learned today that if you annoy a 15 pound cat, it jumps on you at 3:00 in the morning. =P

I actually re-learned that when you wake up from taking a nap in the middle of the day, you forget what day it is and you think its the morning of the next day; so when you look at the clock and it says 5:15 in the afternoon, you get a min-sensation of horror of sleeping through an entire work day before you realize that you've only been asleep for three hours.

Because for the last few days I've had to dissect and identify nerves, arteries, and other structures in the abdominal cavity of my cadaver. You get used to the formaldehyde smell...... Eventually

Running away when someone asks you a question you don't want to answer wont solve anything.

I learned how hard it is to kill all parts of King T in Nightmare Tower when you aren't even given the option to summon him most of the time.
