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?

Deoxygenated blood isn't blue


I remember reading part of that article on a different site. It had most of the same bits, but I don't remember the part about he metabolism.

So I guess I learned more about human metabolism and weight gain. At least according to cracked.com.

I learned that I have submitted about 1/1,000th of all submitted castles in CTC2PP. And I've only submitted 64. Who knows what @SSTG's fraction looks like.

I also learned that a new round has begun in the CTC2PP: Custom Castle Contest. Congratulations to @Arm_Candy on his victory.

Apparently I'm the only person at my work that knows what the World Cup is.

Very disappointing.
