Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ (1/24/22)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Random Facts for your Monday – January 24th, 2022. Let’s learn something together:

  1. In 2013, scientists in China were able to grow a human tooth from scratch, using stem cells taken from human urine.
  2. The phrase “cut to the chase” comes from the silent film era, when movies were usually long love stories that ended with a thrilling chase scene. So when people would say, “cut to the chase,” it meant, “skip all the boring details and get to the exciting part.”
  3. Florida – the Sunshine State – has more indoor tanning salons than McDonald’s locations.
  4. Even though Nevada is most famous for its legalized gambling, it doesn’t have a lottery. Lotteries have been illegal in Nevada since the state’s constitution was ratified in 1864.
  5. There are 96 bags of poop, pee, and vomit on the moon. Astronauts from the Apollo missions left them there to reduce the weight of their shuttles, so they’d be able to bring back moon rocks and core samples.

Be sure to use one of these little tidbits in your life this weekend!
