What I have learned today
Disappointed to discover that this thread has not made it over from the previous incarnation of the board.

Today I learned that Rick Rubin started the Def Jam record label, which surprised me,
Money doesn't buy happiness, but money does buy jet skis. Did you ever see someone on a jet ski who wasn't happy?

I'm glad you pointed us there. I will now die even more confused than I was.

The Aerosmith song Dream On is older than I am.

That vaping is pretty much like smoking if you are me which, fortunately, I am. One month off the real thing and I'm starting to look into better gear, which will probably end in scuba-style tanks strapped to my back, a permanent snorkel mouthpiece and some weight belts to just about keep my feet on the same rock as everyone else.

It's kept me off the rest of the carcinogens in a smoke quite nicely though, so I'm happy with that.

Our foreign billionaires are a lot less philanthropic -  but, then again - to fill Blackburn's ground would take more than one-third of the town's adult population. You get the feeling that the Venky's don't really know how many chickens make five. But Blackburn will probably still score a lot more goals than us, and be a more dynamic (if less robust) team than Forest.

I don't know why I am on the Sports Direct mailing list, but it appears now that I am. I learn from their recent promotional email that Robson Green is the face of Dunlop fishing equipment and clothing. Are we back in the 70s, where minor British actors/celebrities and sportsmen had promotional tie-ins with random lifestyle products?

I believe Robson Green presents some fishing type program on the telly, to be fair. Or was that Jerome?

The downside is you have to live in Blackburn to benefit fully. I'd rather pay the extra myself.

Robson Green's Extreme Fisting as it's known in our house. By me at least.
