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 how hard it is to find someone to race against you in Exit Path. I get the impression the game is nowhere near as popular as it was a couple years ago.

What similar games are still widely played here?

Last but not least, I realized procrastinating is a bad idea but I do it anyway.


Actually, if you work better under pressure, procrastinating can be a good thing.

I learned that I can gain muscle mass on my arms very quickly. To be fair, though, there wasn't much there to begin with, so I couldn't exactly downsize in the shape I was in not too long ago.


If you are relatively new to working out, building muscle mass happens fairly quickly.

Today I learned that a kid from my graduating class of high school (had a class with him, talked with him a good number of times..fairly friendly with him) shot and killed himself.

I learned from a Kong user on EE that Kong is run by GameStop.

I also learned that arguing with a Kong user is useless.

That would explain my insanely fast reflexes (hair is for the feeble-minded).

I learned today that there's a forum search. Also, that after being in the same Portuguese class for over 2 months, nobody in the class has learned any Portuguese.

I learned that my Lhasa Apso is not the only dog watching TV for long periods of time. I was looking online and I found many comments about people saying their Lhasa likes to watch TV for up to 15 minutes sometimes. Funny isn't it?
Darn, I though my dog was special! :/

Today I learned that Theodore and Franklin Delano Roosevelt were cousins. You'd think I'd already know that, but I always assumed it was coincidence.

I learned that the nearby McDonald's, which I've never been to, is currently under construction. I wish I had known this before I went out on a McNugget-run.
