Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (1/2/24)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Tuesday, January 2nd, 2024. Let’s learn something together:

  1. Peanut butter in Dutch is called pindakaas – or “peanut cheese” – because the word “butter” is only supposed to be used with products that contain actual butter.
  2. Duffel bags are named after a town in Belgium called Duffel, where the fabric for the bags originally came from.
  3. “Public school” in England is the equivalent of “private school” in the U.S.  It’s a school you have to pay for.  Our “public schools” are called “state schools” over there.
  4. The only planet that’s not named after a Roman god or goddess is Earth.
  5. The tradition of presidents wearing an American flag pin started because of a Robert Redford movie from 1972 called “The Candidate”.  He wore one in the movie, Nixon’s chief of staff saw it, and had the REAL president start wearing one.

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