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 there vets come on AG much more than I thought.

They're just sitting there. Lurking.

I also learned that the large majority of people when asked to guess a vegetable (Guess one now) will get this.

I learned that, after shaving the beard I've had since the beginning of the school year, I still have a chin. I kind of had a hunch it was there, but I couldn't remember what it looked like.

Today I learned that it's the 20th anniversary of the first Beavis and Butthead episode. (Today.) I also learned that almost all Chinese people are lactose intolerant.

The ability to tolerate lactose after babyhood is actually a genetic mutation. Since China has never been a milk-drinking culture, the gene never evolved beyond it's original form in most of the population.

Scientists identify lactose intolerance mutation.

I learned about many unusual food flavors from reading through the entire bizarre food thread. What I really can't believe is how many of them I already knew about.
