Forums » Smalltalk » Today I Learned...

I'm not sure if this falls in Smalltalk or Forum Games, but I placed it here because it feels small-talky to me. Feel free to move it if it's not the right place.

I noticed that there's no thread like this yet (I think), so I decided to make one! Just write one thing that you've learned today!

It can be something big, something small, something new you tried out and liked, general info you didn't know before... It can even be something you relearned!

It's okay to post here once per day, every time you learn something, or write more than one thing that you learned!

Today... I learned that talking to different kinds of people with depression and offering them advice, doesn't always work with all of them. It will work for some but not all.
