Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ on this Wednesday – January 11th, 2023. Let’s learn something together:

  1. Bob Dylan wrote 17 known drafts of his 1983 song Jokerman before deciding on the final version.
  2. Kenny Rogers started his professional music career playing upright bass in a jazz trio in the 1960s.
  3. The color fuchsia is named after a German botanist from the 1500s named Leonhart Fuchs.  (Pronounced Fyooks, like “dukes”.)  He discovered a flower that was a pink-magenta color and called it a fuchsia, so that became the name of the color as well.
  4. Mirrors are actually light green.  They’re created using a type of green glass with a silver backing . . . but you can’t see the green, because you’re just seeing a reflection.
  5. The original “Blade Runner” movie was set in 2019.

Be sure to share these 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ with your family, friends & coworkers at some point today!
