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.Screen Shot 2021-09-29 at 3.39.26 PM

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.

Hey, so the reading was a bust this past month. I think I did pretty decently on my goals otherwise. Check it! 1. Music Play: It took a late-game surge to make this happen, but it did, and that's all...

It always amazes me how that old maxim “the more things change, the more they stay the same” remains true pretty much no matter what. The latest example? A while back… I was driving around through neighborhoods with my windows...
