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 about all the playable characters in Mario Super Sluggers. What prompted me to look this information up remains a mystery.

Purdue got a snow day since forever. Probably will never happen again while I am here.

I learned you should never try to write 4 two page long, in depth journals in the two days before they're due.

Sounds like fun.

I learned that I scored a 10/10 on my last history quiz.

Not like that's a surprise or anything.......

I learned that many people who introduce themselves in the Newcomer's Forum often don't return to the community much, if ever again. Shame.
