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 what armadillo eggs are, and no, they are not actual armadillo eggs. They are sausages stuffed with jalapenos stuffed with cheese.

Doesn't sound like my cup of tea.

I learned that we would have to sterilize almost 90% of female elephants in Kruger national park in order to maintain a stable population of around 7,000 individuals. Oh, the joys of excel.

I learned that dreams can tell you what you need to do once you fall back into reality (based on what kind of dream you have).

So if I have a dream about eating pie, does that mean I need to have a piece of pie?

More accurate explanation..

Dreams explore aspects of your life..sometimes trivial things..sometimes complexities that your mind is trying to solve. A common way your mind does so is by adding it into your dream and abstracting it in some way

Example: Being chased by someone or something that you feel threatened by and can't escape could be your dream/mind exploring the feelings of a closing due date for an essay at school

I learned (the hard way) you should always ask, when buying a car, if the person you're buying it from has the title. At least before you sign bill of sale and hand over the money.

I learned how painful certain sore throats can be. I've had some pretty awful ones in my day, but this is by far the worst so far. *knock on wood* I would not wish this agony upon my greatest foes.

Yup. I've had a similar experience myself (luckily I didn't end up buying it). You would think that at some point during negotiations the seller might mention that he doesn't actually have a title for the car...

Well, Today (err... yesterday) I learned that bats are able to delay fertilization until the wish to become pregnant.

Oh hi!

Today I've learnt many things.

I've learnt that I'll have to craft a hammer in school soon. And learnt that I'll get to weld things this year, also learning that you can weld with electricity and gases, with explosives and even under water!

And I've realized how great is to wake up earlier than normal. You get time to do everything you need and there's still some left.
