What have you learned in the last week? Month? Year? No waffle, please. Also, in your first try, do not check, search or do anything that will provide you with information instead give me your initial answer, but after that feel free to check your web history if you need. Incidentally, you'll be providing to answers as a result of following my request.

Thanks ;)

Today I learned that I have 11 toes.

Yesterday I learned that I'm the reincarnation of Adolf Hitler.

Crazy right?

I began learning Cold Reading last week, reading an excellent book on the subject.
That's interesting, you've drawn the 6 of Knives... This is a card which tells me about your world and your ability to keep things in order. It tells me that you are tidy person, yet you are capable turning a blind eye to a bit of mess.

G22 = Amount of money you want to find how much tax is taken out of.

The equation determines the amount of tax on G22 using the current tax brackets

G9=0.1
G10=0.15
G11=0.25
G12=0.28
G13=0.33
G14=0.35

H9=0
H10=8375
H11=34,000
H12=82400
H13=171850
H14=373650

K9=8375
K10=34,000
K11=82400
K12=171850
K13=373650
K14=373650+

=(((IF(G22>=$K$9,$K$9*$G$9,0))+(IF(AND((G22<$K$9),(G22>$H$9)),G22*$G$9,0))+(IF(G22>=$K$10,($K$10-$H$10)*$G$10,0))+(IF(AND((G22<$K$10),(G22>$H$10)),(G22-$H$10)*$G$10,0))+(IF(G22>=$K$11,($K$11-$H$11)*$G$11,0))+(IF(AND((G22<$K$11),(G22>$H$11)),(G22-$H$11)*$G$11,0))+(IF(G22>=$K$12,($K$12-$H$12)*$G$12,0))+(IF(AND((G22<$K$12),(G22>$H$12)),(G22-$H$12)*$G$12,0))+(IF(G22>=$K$13,($K$13-$H$13)*$G$13,0))+(IF(AND((G22<$K$13),(G22>$H$13)),(G22-$H$13)*$G$13,0))+(IF(G22>=$K$14,($K$14-$H$14)*$G$14,0))+(IF(AND((G22<$K$14),(G22>$H$14)),(G22-$H$14)*$G$14,0)))/G22)

Over the past 3 months how desperate some of the poverty and deprivation is in parts of Scotland, due to meeting people on a daily basis who are in this situation.

Last year I learned how to play "air on a g string" and bach's" moonlight sonata" on the classical guitar. After I finally got to the point where I could make it through each one to the end, I took a break. Over the next few months, I picked it up occasionally and played them... What I then learned is that if you stop playing them, the knowledge slips through your fingers like fine-grained sand.

That sounds like Redneck 101.

No, Redneck 201, we weren't allowed to use duct tape.

Today I learned that aluminum bottle caps, the kind with a two or three inch sleeve for long-necked bottles, are pressed from a disc of aluminum without reheating the aluminum. I thought reheating would be needed to relieve the drawing stress. The caps are painted before they are drawn, and the paint isn't damaged.

This month, I have been reading "The Jesus Mysteries" and learned about the "lost books" of the Bible and about the parallels between the story of the pagan god Dionysus-Osiris and the Jesus story. I learned that paganism was a well-codified religion in ancient times.

A this month, I have been reading "The Role of the Sun in Climate Change." I knew that in the past 1200 years that climate was well correlated with sunspot activity. However, in the 20th in the US, the correlation is positive east of the Rockies and negative west of the Rockies. Perplexing.

Over the past several months I have been learning how to use raw mode with my camera. It makes no difference in sharpness compared to JPEG, but there is a big improvement in tone range.
