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 that selfies are the worst thing to do. You lose your pride, love, and soul.

I learned I should make lists for the things I want to do, because I've forgotten to do the half of them...

I learned long ago what's handy about to-do lists is you can cross of all that's not really absolutely necessary, until you end up with zero ;-P

Verizon Wireless has fallen in quality over the years. It's a shame.

Today I learned that you have Jalapenos in a sandwich. And it can taste good, too.

I learned today, within the past half hour in fact, that there's an underwater hotel that has been proposed for construction in Dubai.

And yet, it won't even be the first hotel in Dubai with underwater suites.

I learnt that you really shouldn't have 3 espressos and a Monster before you go into an exam. What a silly idea it was I could barely write.

I've been wondering where the Red Bull shots have gone...I personally don't like the Red Bull taste. I know there is/going to be a ban on Monster in the US and other european countries as it is supposedly the worst out of energy drinks excluding energy shots, this is only due to the size of the can of 500ml which is double the average Red Bull can but with the same 32mg of caffeine per 100ml. If Monster is banned in the UK I will be deeply saddened.

Today I learned how little you can progress over so much time with a customer service representative, and all just to get a 25 character long alphanumeric string. I imagine I could get farther by making a permutation machine - 36^25? Psh. That's nothing.

I learned that I'm in the spelling bee which is happening tomorrow.

Kinda wish the teacher had told me yesterday because he basically dropped a bomb on me and I was worried for 2 hours.

Actually I'm still worried but not as much.

What age does America do "Spelling Bee" up to? Over here I only did it in primary school, or &quotre-school" for you lot.
