I learned that the American possum is completely immune to nearly every kind of venom and even to some inorganic poisons.

I need to find one of those bastards and see if they get hangovers.
I'll fill this out when I'm smarter

This is the sort of thing research funds should be put to.

Beer is much better when you put rum in it. The opposite is not necessarily true. How weird is that?

I've learned, to my chagrin, a drink in time saves nine! Who knew?
Found myself in the Matrix and took the red pill. Now I want the blue pill and my bottle and leave me alone.

While this may be true, you must drink nine before you really start to see the effects.

I learned that alcohol will not cool you off when it is so fucking hot you are sweating sitting in your lounge. It will only make you sweat more but eventually you will mellow out in your own piss and it won't feel so uncomfortably hot and humid. Wake up and smell the booze!

I may not have learned anything today but I taught a person to use a bread twisty.
So I got that going for me. Which is nice.
