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 bacon-wrapped lobster exists, partly thanks to Mino... =)

Now I just wish I knew where to find it...

Here's an interesting one: I learned that I have a three-inch-long scar on my right elbow. You'd think I would have noticed something like that by now, because I remember having a cut there but I know it was a number of years ago.

I guess I just don't look at my arms enough these days.

Too watch out (While driving) for police officers that are at the bottom of downhill areas waiting to catch you speeding.

Elbowing yourself into a better position there Ernie?! Heheh... =P

Today I learned that "Murphy's Law" always applies...

You walk around with a tray full of drinks and you always try to avoid it... but somehow there's always a dork that wants to tell his table guests a story by using his arms causing your tray to be hurled through the restaurant... *facepalms*

Let's give that floorcloth a proper workout... =/

I learnt that if you say the word learnt, burnt and words of that nature people get really annoyed at you because of the way you say things on the internet.

I learned a similar thing today while playing Burrito Bison. No matter how fast you think you're going, you hit one cop and that speed is gone.

I heard THE loudest car I have ever heard in my life drive by... it was louder than any motorcycle I had ever heard! I didn't know before today that cars could even get that loud!

I know what you mean. I was having a nice dinner with my associates, and I was trying to tell them a story about a really big fish I caught, when all of a sudden this very uncoordinated waiter comes out of nowhere and gets his tray in the way of one my hand gestures. Needless to say, that's the last time I go to the Netherlands for dinner.

I learned most English-speaking people pronounce "our" with 1 syllable, where as most Iowans pronounce it with 2 syllables. I guess that's another word to add to ow-er accent list.

We also say "zinc" instead of "sink," and "warsh" instead of "wash."

Lol Ernie, that's nothing... I was trying to have dinner in some second-rate restaurant and all of a sudden a tray filled with drinks flies towards me and drenches my favorite t-shirt! I learned never to go back there again!

I learned that no matter how hard you drill something into someone, they can always find a way to disprove you.
