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 the merit prize for winning the contest takes much longer than I expected, unless my comment has not yet been seen.

I learned that I've started three threads that are now on the first page of the Tavern that have over 1,000 replies.

Usually it doesn't take this long, but the admins are quite busy, so if worse comes to worst, you can always give Ferret a tap on the shoulder as a friendly reminder.

I've learned... well, I've been reminded of how cruel somebody can be with other people's suffering. Even if you've know them for years. Mmm, people can be really surprising, not always in a good way.

P.S.: also learned that @MacII has decided to change my pretty black rose for this (also nice) knight in love. I didn't know who you were o.O

I learned that @themastaplaya has apparently been banned. Not sure why I linked to his profile.

Learned that a girl on the bus, who sits a seat up and across the aisle, supposedly found a Trojan condom, still in the package, in her mirror make-up thing which was in her backpack.

Supposedly its still on the bus somewhere.

I learned that I'd like to be the first human to colonize IO.(a Jupiter Moon)
I like cold so...
Seriously, I love cold, snow, Ice. Taking a walk in the evening while it is snowing is my favorite activity in the World.
Fun fact, I always had a GF in Winter time because I get all my powers from cold and snow. All I have to do is smell snow and BOOM, my super powers (inner Yeti) appear! xD

Learned that SSTG is furry on the inside. May make a theory about that later.

Oh, is that yours? Sorry! I'm sure I'll come to regret not being able to get it back just like that...

[quote=R2D21999]a Trojan condom[/quote]

(Looking that up, W'edia: ) "Trojan is a brand name of condoms manufactured by the Church & Dwight Company"

I thought that was a poorly chosen name for a condom, if ever I heard one. ROFL.

I learned that only four people submitted castles in the contest this round, myself being one of them.

The unfortunate part is that our school's mascot is the Trojan. I'm surprised we don't sell condoms.

In relation with the condom thing, I learned that someone involved with it told the vice principal, resulting in the bus video tape to be taken.

Most likely I'm going to be visiting the vice principal and she isn't very nice.

You have my best wishes R2. Good luck.
