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?

Today I learned how to install infared floor lights in a car (my car). Now all I have to do is flip a switch and the bottom interior of my car lights up with infared light.
That's a horrible waste of money. Not only is infrared completely invisible to the human eye; it's also emitted by pretty much everything that has any heat at all.

It's a bright ultravioletish blue [...]
Uh... bad news on that one, too.

I learned that the reason why I'm so tired all the time could be because I don't exercise regularly, I drink caffeinated beverages every day, and I don't sleep very much. Who could've seen that coming?

I thought that any deep red light could be called infared. I assure you that both colors are quite visible. I guess we will just call them porn movie red and headache blue from now on...

Today I learned that adobe flash player is not supported by my mobile device. This means that I cannot play any of the games on AG until I get a new computer.

I learned that just because you have an oven mitt on one hand does not mean you can take a pie out of the oven with both hands.

Also that not being bilingual in a bilingual country is a fairly big problem.

It's wonderful having parents that enjoy watching their granddaughter so that you can get more than three hours of rest.

Now, being the only one awake in their home at 3am is another story...

I learned that CTC2PP counts as a pirate game. I've never seen a pirate with a trebuchet, but it would make a great addition to any pirate ship.
