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?

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'pedia: ) "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.

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.
