I learned that my new, real genuine, artificial imitation, hear everything, super whiz-bang, copycat electronic ear muffs, with almost a thousand reviews, still don't work unless you wear earplugs with them at the indoor range, and barely tolerable without earplugs at outdoor ranges (hope all that wasn't too hard to follow?).
They were Howard Leight Sport Impact muffs (I bought two, one for wife, same results). Friends don't let friends damage their hearing.
Could it be true that "you get what you pay for" actually has some credibility?
I'm German and I just pronounced "squirrel" properly. Did you hear it?
Sorry for the tome, but this is my first post, and I wanted it to be helpful. You may not get another post outta me for a few years...
Unfortunately, I just learned that if one steps on ones pants cuff when going down stairs, one has a tendency to go down the stairs much more rapidly than desired. Also that ones butt and head make funny sounds when bouncing off the steps.

Today I learned that one half of the class that I sat in today for INPO training in Atlanta,Georgia, thought that it was really cool to be able to own suppressors, sawed off shotguns and short barreled rifles and that the other half of the class of trainers from Illinois, Massachusetts,New Jersey, New York and California, were absolutely terrified of the prospect of being able to own any of the above.
It was interesting to me, that the Trainers from Tennessee,Florida,Georgia, Virginia and Texas wanted to find out more, and rest of the Trainers didn't want to have anything to do with them.
Still a lot of misconceptions out there about that stuff.

I learned a couple of days ago if you accidently shrink a shirt in the dryer (I do this to often) that you can get it wet, stretch it out by hand and hang dry and it will dry pretty unshrunk.
I also learned (heard, haven't verified) that the four universal rules of firearms came from the navy seals.
The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.
Today I learned a luncheon isn't just for bored housewives and soccer moms. I received my invitation to the VA's "Caring for our Caregivers" luncheon at the end of the month. I'm really looking forward to going to hear the guest speaker and also speak with other care givers about their methods, experiences, perspectives, understandings, etc. in regards to PTSD and TBI (the veteran I care for suffers from both severely).

I grew up in an Ialian Catholic family and always was fascinated about how they selected the pope. Pretty much everyone knows about the smoke coming from the roof of the Sistine Chapel, what I did not know is they put the chimmeny up just for this occasion (electing a new Pope). I just assumed it was part of the chapel.

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
I learned that my boss is a, Well you know.

Nope, it's very not funny. But I'm very blessed to have a job. It's going to be a little harder for the next six months but we'll survive.

I learned Friday, first hand, why people say anytime a attorney opens his mouth he is telling a lie. I just fired my attorney for that very reason.

I learned that some new members to this forum don't take the time to learn the forum, instead they quote rules and fail to understand the definition of "Off Topic" is.
"Gun Free Zones" is where only criminals carry guns.
