Yesterday, I found out that the moon's gravity is uneven: stronger in some places than others... 

What have you found out lately?

I was just reading about the tornado that ripped through Edmonton, Alberta in 1987. It's known as one of Canada's worst natural disasters. It tore up 40 km and in some spots was up to 1 km wide.

I remember that happening.

There was another (tornados in general are really rare, here) in Hamilton, ON, which ripped the roof off a school building less than a block from my mother-in-law's house... more recently, but I don't remember when.

Sparring with a yellow belt is more painful than sparring with a black belt. People new to sparring don't have very good control. I got punched in the neck and in the arm. I think I have a bruise on my arm. It brings back memories of when I was newbie. Not sure how that compares with a deeper understanding of how the universe works.

I learned that Benjamin Franklin was unschooled.  He only recieved a few years of formal schooling, after that he learned everything from reading booking and apprenticeships.  It was one of the HSLDA podcasts on iTunes (it didn't specifically say he was unschooled)

I found out a while ago that he owned and operated a brewery, to pay for his printing business --which he started when he was 12. The brewery, that is.

I learned a much easier, less time consuming way to stitch fabric flowers for sewing & craft projects.

Well, that's the kind of learning you can really use!
