It's never too old to teach yourself new tricks. Two things I learned today:

I always thought you were supposed to run on those elliptical machines at the gym. I always wondered why it felt so wrong and what the hell the swinging handles were for. Turns out I was supposed to pretend to ski. Suddenly it makes sense.

Pink Floyd's "One of These Days" has only one spoken line, a garbled bit snarling "One of these days, I'm going to cut you into little pieces." Sketchy. But, until today, I always thought the line was something pretty different. I think my version is something I'd be much more comfortable muttering to myself: "One of these days, I'm going to dance with the demons."
