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 after 2 days in the high 70 degrees, we're expecting snow tomorrow. :O

I learned that it's not as hard as you'd think for some people to confuse a koala with a baboon.

Apparently a man changed his name to a 99 character long name after losing a bet. His name is now: 'Full Metal Havok More Sexy N Intelligent Than Spock And All The Superheroes Combined With Frostnova' No joke, that's his actual name now.

Today I learned that Singin' in the Rain is a good movie no matter how many times you watch it. I also learned to never click on a link called hypnotoad, and that having exactly 618 posts is not something I'm planning on doing.

Been learning once again of late that if you aspire to work towards a Brave New World and all that, a group of 10-30 to start with may be a little overly ambitious...

Humans, grumph.

I learned that I'm not incredibly well-known in this community. At least I'm succeeding in staying under the radar.

I learned that there is at least one spider in existence that can design a silk winch capable of hauling an unsedated weevil (~5x its size) off its footing in ~1/8 of a second.
