CHAMPION! I don't think I've learned anything noteworthy today YET. There's still about 6 hours left in the day though.

We watched the remake of "All the King's Men" tonight (a good movie)
and that led me to read up on Huey Long.
I learned that the assassination plot was a many-tentacled affair.
... FDR ?... bodyguard ?...physician ?

It's still not settled, but it reads a lot like Cat On A Hot Tin Roof.

Today, I learnt that my stomach does not have room for curry at 4.30 p.m., pizza at 6.30 pm followed by a brownie with chocolate sauce and icecream.

I'm not sure I want to hear a detailed answer to that qustion.

I learned there's an Aunt Millie's bakery just up the road from where beest works. Not sure if that knowledge will ever be useful, but I learned it.

I learned that when calling and hunting crows, you have to kill the first crow that comes in...because he's a scout. If he goes back to the others after he spots you, you won't see any from that group.

No, I had to take most of the brownie home with me (otherwise what Monster didn't want to know probably would have come true). I've just eaten the remains of the brownie now 24 hours later and discovered that it was actually made of chocolate flavoured concrete.

The 'egm' ending automatically makes me think of phlegm.
