Today I learnt that as well as the semi-expected revelation that there are chav farmers, today I also discovered that there are also emo and punky-goth farmers. Very peculiar, but it was a happy thing to discover.

So... What have you learnt today?

I've learned not to ask teachers stupid questions. I've also learned that teachers will always say no if you ask them to go get water, but will say yes if you say you need to go to the bathroom. They also always correct you if you say 'can I' instead of 'may I'.

Today was a very teacher-filled day.

I don't !!!!!

I have discovered that students (or at least the ones I teach) think that I make them do coursework because I WANT to mark it!

I recently learned from an old mythbusters episode that it's possible to start a fire with ice. Excuse the pun but how cool is that?
Apparently you shape a lump of clear ice into a lens and focus the sun's rays.

I learned that, when you're looking at properties to rent, the word 'spacious' has different meanings depending on how close you are to the city centre. Not a very interesting thing to learn, I admit, but you'd like the language to maintain some sense of consistency, wouldn't you?

I've learned that you apparently DO NOT get better at the Chuck E. Cheese's games with age. Winning is set on pure luck. I've also learned that my arm is now long enough to just reach in and grab the tickets. My prize : Tootsie Roll pillow, 2000 tickets.

I've learnt that just because there are road signs on the motorway leading you to a particular city/area, it doesn't neccessarily mean that you are anywhere near it.

I really should have worked that one out before now tongue.gif

I can't think of anything I have learnt today, but the topic reminds me of something that my girlfriend's daughter said the other day:

"You know how they say, 'You learn something new every day'? Well, I know exactly what I learnt today: that if you put an egg in a metal cup in the microwave, it doesn't cook, but it does cook in plastic one."

And this lesson was learnt through action, not theory... so we had to check that the microwave was still working smile.gif

Still, the young girl learnt a new lesson: don't put metal things in the microwave!

Eek! Metal in mircowaves...

In the last 24 hours I have learnt two things:

I relearnt just how damn expensive it is to move house, ohmigod it costs a fortune.

I learnt that those things that you hear about happening to strangers sometimes happen to people that you know - my girlfriend's father was stabbed with a hypodermic needle by a stranger. I won't go into details, but the chances are very good that there won't be any long-term damage, but there is obviously a slim chance that it could be very serious indeed. This is a very strange world.

Two days ago I have learnt that life drawing a model for extended periods of time, over multiple sessions screws with my head.

(Being that intimately familiar with a strangers body, is just weird.)

My very modest mother took her first life drawing class in a few decades the other day and came home looking like a fire hydrant. She was full of stories about the model's nipple rings, etc. But I think to her, it's just so alien that she has to talk about it if only to keep from thinking about it. I suppose you are the same way.

Today I learned that my goldfish is the best fish in the world, because any other pet would have died from the utter lack of attention I give him.

Possibly.

I have seen people I wasn't involved with naked before. But never so regularly and I haven't been invited to stare quite so intently before either. Part of my brain was like,

"ack, don't stare!!"

then a second later I'd be like.

"duh.. that's why your here moron!"

I learned two things today. One, how babies are made. Not sex, but all the weird fact stuff. Thank you biology for creeping everyone out! Two, if you stick a bag of popcorn into a microwave, the popcorn that was already popped and sold like that, you can see electricity. It's scary!


*edit* ((It's taken me 6 hours and 38 minutes to realize this...but..this is my 1000th post! w00t!))

I've learned that I can fail all tests in my classes, but if I do all the other work I would pass.

I dont know if this is a good system. But it saves me from failing! Hopefully.

APs? I love the weighting.

[Yesterday] I learned that, despite how immensely comfortable I am with training around the county, I am not particularly good with buses.
