I'm one of those people. I ask questions. I read. I walk around and look at stuff. I want to know.... as much as I can about as much as I can.
Somedays what I learn is quite simple or small, or trivial. Other days it seems as if the world itslef has given up a wondrous secret. Doesn't matter which, they both matter.
But, what better way to keep the mind healthy and active. If i get to the end of the day, and I haven't 'learned' something new, and odd day it is. I can just as easily pick up the dictionary and randomly select a word. Something new.
Then I can go to bed... content ' it was a good day tater' :D
