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 Maryland can have a 60-degree Christmas day but have a snowstorm that closes everything in March.

I learned while going to my mail box that hawks hunt even close to the human population.
As I was coming back inside I saw a hawk holding a robin in its claws and taking off in a hurry right in my yard. :O

Learned that my school really wants us to study for I-STEP. That video they showed us was just... horrible.

I learned that today is Mardi Gras.

I also learned that username changes are now a thing. Just ask @Spartan (well, don't literally ask, since I just told you what you would be asking).

I don't get it. How dare you! Well, I never! The very idea!

And you've just learned that name changes break your MMO accounts. Because I just told you. >

I learned that driving isn't as hard as I thought it was. Also that you can't run over civilians for bonus points.
