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?

Today I learned how hot hot mustard really is. I ordered a sandwich that came with honey mustard, but they accidentally put hot mustard on it. I could literally feel the burn all throughout my face.

I still ate the whole sandwich.

It's been here since my birth!

Today I learned that when my toenails grow out sharp, i should cut the sharp bits off before I smash my foot into someone and get blood on my toenails. I also learned that if I fall asleep on the bus near the sixth graders, they will attempt to draw on my face.

Today I learnt that thalidomide can be used to treat multiple myeloma... but it comes with cumulative dose-related toxic neuropathy. Thus the old dude on my ward who can no longer walk properly, though arguably he has at least 2 other problems that could have done that all by themselves and I now have to figure out which one is more responsible for what...

I learned that just because I'm in a foreign country doesn't mean I can't use a computer.

I learned that the original Zelda for the NES is really hard.

"HOW AMTO KNOW HOW TO DO THAT?" is the entire game.

I'm just so used to easy games.

I learned how much a hotel room can feel like a prison cell when you're with your parents. Guess who I'll be avoiding for the rest of this trip?

Today/tonight I learned that the clubs in Cancun aren't as fun as they look. Couples make up most of the population, and the single girls have one drink and then leave. I'm so glad for free admission.

Oh, and I learned that if the old point system still existed, I would have the wood lord badge.

I learned that my friend has random mood swings from amused to depressed and back again, and I also learned that drinking one cup of cranberry juice gets rid of my allergies for twenty minutes.
I also learned that putting contacts in grosses people out. I don't know why.

I learned that The Tavern and other sections of the community don't have too many new threads popping up all that often. If I were more creative I would start a few myself, but you know, I'm not, so that probably won't be happening.

Today I learned there is a type of "Hankie Code" for men who wear earrings. According to the information I have found, if a man wears a ring on his right ear he is a homosexual and if he wears one on his left ear he is straight. I believe the term for this case is "Left is Right and Right is Wrong".
