  1. “The education of a man is never completed until he dies”
    Robert E. Lee

    It's been said that we learn something new every day. Sometimes it's a fact about the world, or a fact about ourselves, or just an experience that we learn from. I know a good number of Iwakuians are still in school/college, so it's a given that you'll be learning, but the rest of us are still learning from the school of life and this thread is the place to share that information. Whether it be useful, profound, mundane or amusing, just share one thing that you learned today. Go!

    The dot over the letter 'i' is called a tittle.

  3. I'm going to hope you learned that fact from a book, or a television show or just... anything that isn't real-life experience...

  10. That Social Historians have a predisposition towards wanky intellectual circlejerks, and must be beaten with the 'Proper Historical Method' stick periodically to prevent this.

    And also that Marxist Historians are still fucking stupid.

  11. That March Of Progress sociologists are too positive about the changes in childhood >.<
  12. Feminism is the dictionary definition of people who want equality between all the sexes. Yay!
    All females together in America get paid a little less than thirty cents per a man's dollar,
    African American females get paid .66 cents to a man's dollar,
    and Hispanic women in America are paid .58 cents to a man's dollar.
    Not so yay!

    Also the governors race in Maine is going on and I'm learning tons of new stuff about politics and Im not sure I like it.

  13. That you should definitely not cook home made mini pizzas solely on broil but rather cook em at around 350F for a while first. Melted cheese but it was only lukewarm. :/
