There's a saying you learn something new everyday. Let's put that to the test. List something you learned today, it can be educational or something common like your cousin is getting married.

----------------------------------

I learned that Ben Stein made a documentary that defends intelligent design. I always assumed he was an atheist, so this came as a surprise.

Some of you might already know but I've just found out about this while scrolling through tumblr:

"Jiraiya was based from a japanese folklore, The Tale of the Gallant Jiraiya. In the legend, Jiraiya is a ninja who uses shapeshifting magic to morph into a gigantic toad. As the heir of a powerful clan in Kyūshū of the same name, Jiraiya fell in love with Tsunade (綱手), a beautiful young maiden who has mastered slug magic. His arch-enemy was his one-time follower Yashagorō (夜叉五郎), later known as Orochimaru (大蛇丸), a master of serpent magic (the kanji 大蛇 literally means "giant snake" or "serpent").

I learned how to use numerous machines for cutting/drilling into certain metal. It'll be useful when I start making my solar panel.

humorous.com redirects you to joke.com. It doesn't have anything funny in there, but it does exist.

I learned (I should have a long time ago) that being extremely kind to everyone is sometimes painful. I was too naive. Not everyone out there will reciprocate. They just dump you.

Today I learned of the benefits of having more than 1 type of keyboard for certain cases.

That doesn't sound nice. Don't let it get to you too much, but depends on the case and what your kindness-mistake was(like lending money or similar) it could also be good that you learned that lesson.

- judging others by yourself, not from what you hear from others
- an enforcer is hated by many people

I learned that boys can ship anime/manga characters just as intensely as girls do. (Holo vs. Hinata thread) Waifu shipping can be very interesting.:popcorn

Oh yes that's true destiny-senpai. Have you heard FT section? There are certain male users that ship intensely too :heh Sometimes I am amazed by that. I myself have favorite ship, but I don't bother defending them. Let alone talking about shipping in general. Rarely.

Thank you for your reply, DMY-kun! I haven’t visited the FT section so I wouldn’t know how intense shipping can get there, but I take your trusty word for it.

Another thing that surprised me is how much salt Hinata is getting in the Holo vs. Hinata thread.

I learned that someone can hurt even though he doesn't mean to do it.

Based on my experience of reading and watching anime/manga, I learned that some of Japanese mangakas got mental issues and it's not funny. Either they're forced to do something that isn't the original plan or they actually got problems.
