Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ (1/25/22)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Random Facts for your Tuesday – January 25th, 2022. Let’s learn something together:

  1. Blue whale calves can gain 200 pounds a day, every day, for most of the first year of their lives.  This is while they’re nursing . . . roughly their first eight months.
  2. The CEO of the identity protection firm Lifelock once gave out his Social Security number in ads to prove how effective the service was.  His identity was stolen 13 times AND the company was fined $12 million for false advertising.
  3. The official birthplace of Kermit the Frog is Leland, Mississippi.  Jim Henson used to spend time there as a child growing up.
  4.  Burger King can’t call itself Burger King in Australia, because a small restaurant already owns that trademark.  So all the Australian locations are called Hungry Jack’s.
  5. Zebras have stripes to help them keep cool.  Zebras graze longer than other animals, which means they’re out in the sun longer . . . and the stripes help them regulate their body temperature.

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