Did you learn anything today?

Asked by FutureMemory (24104 points ) January 2nd, 2013

I learned that it’s best to resist the temptation to put your finger in a cat’s mouth when it is yawning. It hurts.

But the look on Rosco’s face was worth it.

What did you learn today?

I learned some information regarding things in the universe, names of galaxies, gas clouds, their general locations and so on. I have watched a few documentaries on it today.

Also I learned to not put my penis in a yawning cat’s mouth.

@FutureMemory Ah, thank you for that! I haven’t been brave enough to try it, but it is SO tempting! Guess I better avoid it as I rely on my fingers for my livelihood!

I learned that being nice, doesn’t get you anywhere.

Well, there’s that really important information you supplied, plus a couple of other things.

But this is Social, so what the fuck.

There is no whining in my questions, zen.

I’ve learned that two of the people who answer the IT “Help desk” phone are really not all that helpful. And that, apparently, if you enter information on a weekend to one of our systems, it doesn’t work. This is frightening.

TILT (Today I Learned That): good friends will not let you diss them; they will find you, no matter where it is you are hiding out, and force you to let them keep on being integral parts of your life ;-)

I learned that before you join the queue at the post office, you have to pick and choose a form first. At least that’s what the sweet yet rather annoyed lady at the register said.

I also learned that there are much, much worse McDonalds outlets when it comes to serving eggs for breakfast. The one I just had was as hard as the biscuit. : )

I learnt (not for the first time in my life) that things are never usually as bad as you think they are. Last night I had a very restless night because something was weighing heavily on my mind. This morning I found out that I needn’t have worried so much.

I shouldn’t have kept putting off refilling my prescriptions… Just paid $30 out of pocket for two days’ worth of test strips to hold me over. Ugh.

I learned not to look a gift horse in the mouth, my cousin got a pony for xmas & the little bastard bit me on the nose!

Chionophobia is a weather phobia causing an intense aversion to snow.

Eating three chocolate chip cookies at 4:00 AM is a BAD idea.

Catching Milo in a really deep sleep allows me to snip two or three of his nails without having to put my finger in his mouth.

When it is officially 19˚ outside, it is 10 degrees colder on top of my hill.

The House Republicans, with some exceptions, are a sorry lot for not voting for super aid package for Sandy victims today.

Patti Page, who sang the mega hit “How Much is That Doggie in the Window, died today.

I can increase the speed of my walking program if I keep my goals modest.

@ucme I would ride the heck out of that pony like Thorin Oakenshield and feed it to the goblins if it bites me!

@mazingerz88 The fucker moved faster than seabiscuit with my foot up it’s arse!

I was devastated when I learned that this morning; I’ve been hurting all day. I felt the same way when Republicans pulled a similar stunt after Irene.

I just learned that I used to have the same condition that Stephanie Miller has, and that it’s called paruresis.

And today I came to realize most of the time people can’t stand honesty, no matter what they will tell you.

Yes. I learned at lunch today that when you’re waiting in line to place your order and the person in front of you asks what you recommend and you tell them, they smile, thank you and then order something else.
