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 the thermometer hit 88 freaking degree F today!
I went for my daily walk with my puppy Gigi and she kept laying down on the grass in the shade, looking at me like she was saying dude, it's hot, let's go back in! :O

Learned my wife is having a boy. We were hoping for, and fairly convinced it was a girl. Now I'm stuck trying to find a cool and unique name, cause we already have 2 boys. Aaaand.... The wife won't let me name him Lucas sky or Anakin (our last name is walker)

I learned that the Talking Heads are an American group. I always thought they were from the UK because of David Byrne being from there and all.

I also learned that Round 15 has begun in the CTC2PP Custom Castle Contest.

Congratulations to @Kargothrax and his winning castle.
