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?

How to vaporize oil-soluble solutes to increase the purity of said solute.


I'm not sure how to take this...

I learned how easy it is to run a red light, or rather to think you ran one. I swear it was green when I entered the intersection. Must have been yellow. I always notice red lights.


>Pull up to red light
>Get tired of waiting
>Turn right
>You can do that on red lights
>Pull a u-turn after turning right
>Go right at new light

Congratulations, you have just successfully skipped a red light.

Bad things.......^_^

FUUUUUUU-

I learned that MostModestMan is a Taliban member.
Here's the proof.

I really doubt that the Taliban would promote Jesus... unless that's their cover so they can infiltrate Western society!

Probably because you spelled it wrong.

Also, spell check is two words.

I learned that Windows 8 is terribly inefficient compared to Windows 7. Why would a laptop even run the same operating system as a phone?
