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?

Weren't you contemplating an army career? Maybe consider a career change

[quote=Salvidian]TIL AG really helps numb the pain of losing relatives. Lot of funerals.[/quote]

Sorry to hear it, Sal. Tends to come in waves, doesn't it. Good luck with it.

On a rather more frivolous note, I was gonna comment that just now I learned that a-foruming and busily looking up the illustrative links to accompany it and whatnot, one should never forget about that coffee maker on the stove. (No, yes, the house is still standing, thanks, and none too smokey, to boot.)

No, I never was! Why do you think that I was!
I'm not interested in serving in an army with a bunch of homos and manly chicks for our pathetic, loser, d-----bag president. :P

I learned that themastaplaya doesn't appreciate people putting their life on the line for their country. I also learned that he thinks that the army is full of homosexuals even though they are not allowed to join the army.

I learnt a strange fact about "Mutter" song from Rammstein.

I found out that the song is about a man that's made from an experiment and he never felt the love of a mom but he wishes to have felt the love of one and had one.

Plus, the lyrics translated in English are creepy. Creepy in an awesome way.

I did it a few times while watching the hockey playoffs and the 2008 Formula One Grand Prix of Brazil because the winner was decided on the last turn of the last lap on the last race of the season under rainy conditions.
Hamilton won the driver's championship over Massa who was the winner until the last few seconds.
I was standing up, screaming at the TV, that was so exciting! xD
