    i didn't know that "stationery" is a word.

    i thought it was spelled "stationary."

    But that's a different word.

    Post something you learned recently that you can't believe you didn't know. so i feel less ignorant.

    Yeah, I wouldn't have made that spelling difference.


    Recently learned that oil doesn't come from dinosaurs. One of those misconceptions I learned early and never bothered to question. Holy shit, the cognitive dissonance on that was harsh.

    haha, can't say i had that problem.

    but i've always had a problem with affect and effect, didn't know they were different words and meanings.
