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 I was actually funny as recently as two years ago.

What the hell happened in those two years?

Hmm. I have been here for 2 years. Came in 2011. According to lots of AGers 2010 was the last great year. I am probably the cause. Blame me Ernie.

I learned that broad and pointless topics that anybody could say randome stuff in can last a long time on armorgames. E.i. This thread

I learned about the Maori Pukana face that is supposed to be like a challenge or look aggressive-yet small children find it very amusing.

I learned that Fritz the Cat is pretty graphic for something that looks like a children's cartoon.

I learned that Israel Kamakawiwoʻole ("Iz&quot is the highest-selling Hawaiian musical artist of all time, and at one point he weighed 757 pounds. The first part wasn't surprising to me, as he is definitely the most widely-known Hawaiian musical artist outside of Hawaii.

I learned that Carlos Alazraqui, aka Deputy James Garcia on Reno 911, did the voice of Denzel Crocker (Fairly Odd Parents), Mr. Weed (Family Guy), Rocko from Rocko's Modern Life, and the Taco Bell dog! And you've probably never even heard of this guy until now.

I learned that episode 37 of The Simpsons was the first episode in the series that was related to politics. Now there are several dozen, but that's to be expected considering the series is made up of over 500 episodes.

Really guys? A whole week and nobody learned anything?

I learned that, in Japan, Doritos come in many different "gourmet" flavors; none of which are actually relevant to Japanese food. I also learned that the admins did pull an April Fool's joke, but the only people who noticed it were people who regularly read the News column on the main page.

Today I learned that Ernie doesn't read whole posts and makes assumptions off things things that he thinks aren't said, but are (does that make sence?)

Jump to conclusions much? That's a pretty strong accusation to make out of the blue like that.

I learned that Fanta becomes more tolerable the more you drink it. I've always liked it but it used to hurt my stomach. Now it's just like water or Dr Pepper.
