Here are some more fun little tidbits I've gleaned recently to file under Today I Learned!
Today I Learned that the Chicago Bears are, for sure, leaving Chicago proper for the northwestern suburb of Arlington Heights. While I know there are plenty of professional sports teams in the U.S. that have one city's name in their name but actually are in another city, I feel like continuing to call themselves the Chicago Bears is a slap in the face of their new home while being a big F.U. to all the Chicago taxpayers who helped fund that hideous addition to Soldier Field.
Back on track... I also learned that they already have a new tenant lined up for Soldier Field. At least for a couple months a year.
Today I Learned that "Guesstimate" is a real, dictionary-approved word. And not a recent addition, either. Turns out it's been considered a real word since statisticians started using it in the 1930s. Wow! I thought it was total made-up bunk.
Today I Learned that Dani Rojas himself, Cristo Fernández, liked a tweet of mine about him. I'm geeking out. I love Dani Rojas!
Today I Learned there is a difference between making a profit and customer gouging. Admittedly I’ve known this one for a while but check this out…
This toy is US$4.99 in stores (currently!) and while I know that GB>US shipping costs are bad, they are not that bad! That figure is two inches long. $59.57, my ass!
Today I Learned that I've been folding shirts wrong my whole life. This video looks like bunk, but IT WORKS!!!
Today I Learned that I have a lot to learn.
That is all… for now.
