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...

Just because your playing dodgeball, it doesn't mean that your face is the team's meat shield.

That mating calls actually work but work in the wrong way.

And that pi will be with circles no matter what.

I learned that eating excessive amounts of chocolate also makes my allergies go away.
I could sell this stuff as a cure, couldn't I. XD

Today I learned that I can leave this laptop that has been charging all day with the charger cord in it in the hotel room, and my sister can still find a way to drain all the battery in under two hours.

I can't figure out why she would have unplugged the charger cord unless she had moved it somewhere else and put it in the exact same place when the battery was gone, but that just seems like an odd thing to do.

I learned that converting your laptop into an oscillator isn't a good idea. It took 3 days to restore everything.

Oh well, it was still a fun project. :P

I learned that WoodenToaster* responded to one of my tweets today. Makes a man swoon

*WoodenToaster is a big name within the brony community. Probably one of the biggest amongst the fan-base

That litter pisses me off. Seriously, on a drive earlier and there was some everywhere I looked. What the hell is wrong with people? Can't you just hold onto it until you find a trash can?

Perhaps it's not a good idea to do pity dates.

Two things: Don't go outside after a thunderstorm, the air will be full of mosquitos.
And this other one's a few days ago, in which you should not take a dare to run around the house three times when there's a tornado watch. Second lap, the clouds opened up and I got soaked in three seconds.
