Do you remember when you were a kid and your parents would always ask, "So...what did you learn today?" And as a young kid you were pretty excited to babble on for hours, but as you got older, maybe this simply became a shrug of the shoulders. As an adult I am still asked this question by my husband (he loves to learn new things!), but now being out of an Academic setting I'm not as quick to answer. Being at work 8 to 10 hours a day makes it easy to quickly answer about something job-related (if it's interesting I'll post it), but I'd like to look beyond my office time and observe the limited hours of the day when life can become another routine.
So this blog is not only for learning fun and useless facts, it's about taking the time to notice things in life and take a moment to learn something about them. You never know when it will come in handy!
Oh and by the way, today I learned that you can adhere powder-coating to aluminum by sending an electric charge through it (electrostatically!).
What did you learn today?
