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 some people confuse the relationship thread with this thread. First time it's happened, though probably not the last.

Also, I've learned not to click on links shared by ferrets....from what I've read just above.

Today I learned that surfing the web while laughing your brains out is not a good mix and can lead to you posting in the wrong freaking thread.

That and I have learned that clothing can fight you. I've gotten into an argument with my sweat shirt. It insists on making me warmer then I want to be because of the weather, and whenever I take off my jacket I realize I am one degree away from dying.

Help me.

I learned that there are some crazy things on the menu at McDonald's depending on where in the world you go. Shrimp patties, green tea McFlurries, pineapples in place of patties, you name it!
