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 "1000 Blank White Cards" is in fact fun for the whole family, and the 65-card deck I made by hand was worth the effort.

I learned by reading a few comments up that Lauren is more awesome than I thought she was, which I didn't know was possible.
I also learned today that dump trucks in the UK are called tipper lorries.

Yesterday I learned all about wearable tech, probably something I should make a thread on soon. Someone remind me about that.

You changed from being an adorable british person to a monster in one day.


That happened to me when I moved to Australia. If I learned anything today, it's that people just can't appreciate fine cuisine. Those people can all go to hell or Subway for all I care.

I learned that comments from the legacy system are currently being transferred into the Disqus system. They seem to be going in chronological order by join date, so right now the profiles that were made before mid-late 2008 have had their comments converted. @firetail_madness currently has 21851 comments on his page, all in Disqus format.

For those of you who were racing and trying to leave the first comment on everyone's profile, now said comments are out of place and awkward. So for those of you who were previously asking, "Could those 'first!' comments really look any more ridiculous?" my answer for you is affirmative.

I learned that I'm not too bad at freehand digital graphite sketches. This is Amie Jane. She does not exist.

I just now learned that I need to remember to double-check sketches for accuracy. I'm going to need to edit that one.
