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?

Some topics are not really visited


Are you talking about replies or views? Because the number of views is 8,795. If you're speaking of replies then I'm guessing its just because DayCee updates it by deleting the post then pasting it all over again and adding another thing to it. That -9 is usually because of mods deleting posts, its happened to the RPG announcement board before too.

I learned that after 23 long days, the Backstreet Boys finally beat 'N-Sync in a certain band-related battle. In addition to their victory, I learned that a new battle has been declared between two legendary folk acts.

I learned that I can do, if I may say so myself, a pretty good rendition of Tay Zonday singing Chocolate Rain. I recorded myself singing the chorus and even I was impressed by it.

Tay Zonday singing Chocolate Rain


That's a peculiar song (& lyrics), thanks. I gather now it went viral -- something I'd happily missed completely as usual, heheh

I learned some cool tips for recording & editing music, brought to you by Colin Marston. Also learned that 14 string Warrs existed (thought 12 was the max).
