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 actually just woke up not too long ago, but after posting a couple times in Forum Games, I learned that they no longer add up like regular posts. I can see how a system like that could have gotten out of hand, and it was probably removed all for the better.

I learned that Starburst minis exist. Why do they keep making perfectly good candy even smaller than it already is? I still want them.

According to one online test, I can type 85 words per minute.

I should note that I've never had a job that ever involved any word processing, which can only mean I spend far too much time on the internet. But what else is new.

I learned that you can delete your own account. I have to be careful not to hit that button when I edit my profile, even though there is a confirmation for it probably for that reason.

I learned that my University book store sells a Valentine's Day card that says, quote,

"I'm still not sick of you."

From what I have read about before I believe a more proper one would be, "I am banging your roommate too"

I learned that the population of Nigeria is projected to increase to 390 million by 2050. That's an increase of over 220 million in 36 years, more than the country has now in total.
