Someone once said that a day spent without learning something is a day wasted. So tell me, have you learned a single thing today? Please share so the rest of us might learn something together. :D

Trivial things, mind blowing things, boring things, funny things, anything. Just remember to of course keep it clean.

Today I have learned not to photograph my daughter while she is "baking" cookies. Flour will be thrown, it will get all over my new camera's lens and I will have a slight momentarily panic attack.

But, I have also learned how to change a car tire for the first time. In -10C weather I might add. *pats own back*

Nope. Haven't learned anything today at all.

You know, I always hated it when my parents asked me that when I got home from school because all we ever did was basically rehash the same old garbage from the day before, only using different words.

I've been working on the electromagnetic interchanges between the moon and planets. Cross referencing the collected data and trying to arrive at some semblance of a recognisable understanding of their interrelations.... If any are to be found which I did.......Phew!!!
If this makes any sense to anyone ....Well done.
As it is hard for me to describe in such a pithy way.

I have learned today that it is indeed true that 'the best laid plans of mice and woman go aft gangley'(or whatever the correct Burns/Shakespeare quote is).
I had today carefully planned out ...... lots of things to do ..... but from the moment I opened my eyes when I woke up, I've been thwarted at every turn <_< .

I have also learned today that Ryu loves to exaggerate :P

Life is all too much ............................................. and not enough.

It is only when you form your question precisely and accurately that you receive the true answer.

I learned that when banks screw up and allow your account to be drained, no one wants to take responsibility, so instead they adopted a so-sorry-for-you attitude. :td: :angry:

I learned that sometimes people are thinking of you whether you realize it or not. An old friend who I haven't seen in a while unexpectedly brought me lunch and it totally turned my day around.

I also learned that Seth Rogan actually considers himself a comedian. Silly Rogan, jokes are for funny people.

Bah, amateurs! I can be as difficult to deal with as a porcupine on viagra without the need of 90 other grouchy old farts!

My motto? Why be difficult when with a little thought and consideration for others, you can be downright bloody impossible!

I've just learned that there's always one, isn't there?

"Gæð a wyrd swa hio scel, ac gecnáwan þín gefá!": "Fate goes ever as she shall, but know thine enemy!".
I can teach you with a quip, if I've a mind; I can trick you into learning with a laugh; Oh, winnow all my folly and you'll find, A grain or two of truth among the chaff!

I love the old guy dearly or I wouldn't bother - but he can make me CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!  Then I think to myself - what would I be like at 91..  :w00t:   and all is forgiven and forgotten 'til next time ;)
