History
  (The Joe)'s Lessons for the Day began January 22, 2001. The Principal of the school in which (The Joe) attended opened every school morning with a Thought for the Day which were various quotes. Many of the school kids did not like the Thought for the Day & felt it to be stupid. (The Joe) decided that he could do better than all those famous quotes & be stupider at the same time. (The Joe) would present these Lessons live to friends & others each day. The first Lesson Don't play dead in a freshly dug grave. was a smash hit so he continued into oblivion with making Lessons.

  First known as (The Joe)'s Lesson for the Day from Jan. 22-Feb. 7 (The Joe) continually accidentally referred to them as both (The Joe)'s Lesson for the Day & (The Joe)'s Lesson of the Day, people were confused as to which it was so (The Joe) on Feb. 8 changed it to (The Joe)'s Lesson (o)f(or) the Day until Feb. 14. On Feb. 15 it was permanently changed to (The Joe)'s Lessons of/for the Day & said aloud as (The Joe)'s Lessons of for the Day.

  The first 2 weeks of Lessons were presented as Lessons alone. Somewhere in these 2 weeks (The Joe) decided to have companions to the lessons alternating for each day of the week. (The Joe) enlisted help for what each day should be from his friends MP no OC (P.O.C.) & Omaha Nebraska. P.O.C. suggested each Tuesday be a Flashback Edition of a lesson & Omaha Nebraska suggested Friday to be a Bible Scripture for the week. Both were accepted & started Feb. 5 & ended in Lesson Mania Week 2001.

The days went as follows:
Monday:  (The Joe)'s This Week In Piemerican History
Tuesday:  (The Joe)'s Lessons of/for the Day Flashback Edition (Thanks to P.O.C.)
Wednesday:  (The Joe)'s Top 3 of/for the Week
Thursday:  (The Joe)'s Book Drinking tip of/for the Week
Friday:  Scripture of/for the Week (started as semi-random scripture of the week)

  Lesson Mania Week began at the end of Lesson Mania Week. On Friday April 6, 2001 (The Joe) decided that there would be a Mania Month in every April which started with Lesson Mania Week so bonuses were added to the previous lessons of that week & many bonuses were added after that & the entire Lesson Mania Week was presented to people at once! Book Drinking Mania Week, Scripture Mania Week, & Finally Top 3 Mania Week were added to the only full Mania Month ever.The following years only Lesson Mania Week was done.

  After Mania Month Lessons & everything else had nearly fizzled out even the Flashback Edition. The remainder of the school year was finished with 12 Lessons. It was difficult to start lessons back in the next school year & from August 2001 until the end only 8 Lessons were made. There were meant to be totally restarted but it did not happen.

  In 2002 Lessons were brought back & taken farther than ever before. Top 3s were also brought back sometimes. Though there weren't many done in the remainder of the school year there were still far more than in the end of 2001. The first 2 lessons of 2002 were officially presented by Piemerica.

  On Feb. 1, 2002 Piemerica got a website & Lessons were some of the first things to be put on it & were mentioned in the first e-mail about it. Lessons were a great way to attract people to the site & were easy to put on it. The only Lessons done in April were done for Lesson Mania Week 2002 which may have been the funniest Mania of them all. Some leaving Seniors even used a lesson as their leaving advice in the school paper, although they did not credit (The Joe). One lesson used was Don't polish a match book with gasoline. Which was presented in Lesson Mania Week. It is believed that they got the Lessons from the website & not from (The Joe) presenting it to them.

  The next school year & final year for (The Joe) was a year of Lessons like never before. Every day that semester except the first day, which was a hugely missed opportunity, (The Joe) gave at least one Lesson each day sometimes 2 & at times Catastrosphere would pitch some Tips in as well. On Sept. 16, 2002 Epic Lesson was made which is the longest Lesson of all time. There was a Lesson every day of the week from Aug. 13 until Dec. 31, 2002. (Journal about 100th consecutive lesson) The Lesson streak ended Jan. 5, 2003 with 146 consecutive days with Lessons. (The Joe) ended the streak because he had found many lessons to be getting monotonous & for the sake of lesson quality (The Joe) decided to stop daily lessons. There were many Lessons from Feb-May though.

  Lesson Mania Week was put at the End of April & beginning of May so that it would be in (The Joe)'s last full school week as a huge Lesson Mania Blow Out!!! The final lesson given by (The Joe) & given at school was If you don't like foil. BURN EVERYTHING!. After this it was decided that because of the decline of (The Joe)'s existence that (The Joe)'s Lessons of/for the Day would become Piemerica's Lesson of/for the Day, b/c Emperor MAR would be writing nearly all of the lessons from then on. There were very little lessons done in June & July of 2003. Lessons made a small comeback as did Piemerica with its new ad-free site in August of 2003. There were 9 consecutive lessons made in August of 2003 & after that none.

  In March of 2004 Lessons were go again seeing that they are a simple & fun way to update the site. There was also a Lesson Mania Week 2004 which didn't gun for out do the previous year in number. This Lesson Mania Week was included as part of Maynia Month which switched the month to May. From there lessons still continued when ones were dreamed up.

  On August 20, 2004 it was decided that lessons needed a revamping in style seeing that many began with the words:  if, when, or don't & many were play on words. The new style is to be informative & funny in anyway possible except the previously used. Also it was to set for that less funny lessons would not be lone on days but rather go with better ones on the same day. The first lesson of the new style debuted the next day. Eventually the new style fizzled out & just any old thing was used as a lesson as usual. Lesson Mania Week 2005 came at the first full week of Piemerica coming back online & due to the month plus off there were far more lessons than ever.

  In July 2006 after months of Piemerica being offline & taking care of other things Lessons 2006 started off with Lesson Mania Week 2006! Lessons were then written for the upcoming Lessons Book which was released on Oct. 28, 2006 titled Lesson Mania!.

   A streak of daily lessons were released in February 2007. Lesson Mania Week 2007 occurred again in its traditional month of May and for the first time each day's lessons had a theme. Lessons in mid-2007 were often released with multiple lessons on a single day instead of spread out into several days as had been done before. The end of 2007 saw a few flashback editions.

   2008 had the least lessons of any year but it did see lessons presented in videos for the first time. 2009 continued this trend with 19 lesson of/for the day videos, even having single lessons presented in videos on the day of their release. Lesson Mania Week 2010 was presented live on blog.tv with improv & in-depth lesson analysis. 2011 marked the 10th anniversary of lessons with 8 lessons on that day to celebrate the occasion.

   In summer 2012 some classic lessons were made into eCards. Lesson Mania Week 2012 hit last minute in December. Toward the end of 2012 lessons from the daily lesson calendar were shared on facebook. Because of some of those lessons not being very good 2013 was deemed Lesson Mania Year, a year where every calendar day with only one lesson or with no great lessons has a new lesson. Daily calendar lessons were shared along side of these new lessons on facebook. Lessons thus reached their all time height of
international popularity.
