Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (1/3/24)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Wednesday, January 3rd, 2024. Let’s learn something together:

  1. While in line for Star Tours at Disneyland, you’ll hear “Egroeg Sacul” being paged.  That’s George Lucas’ name backwards.  A land-speeder with the license plate THX 1138 is also referenced, and that’s George’s first movie.
  2. The border between Delaware and Pennsylvania is an arc, it’s the only circular border between two states in the country.
  3. Canada, Australia, New Zealand, England, and the United States have had a pact since 1956 never to spy on each other.
  4. Mr. Rogers’ first TV show was in Canada in 1962.  It was called “Misterogers”, all one word.  He didn’t start his show in America until a few years later.
  5. Navy bean soup has been served at the U.S. Senate cafeteria every single day for over 100 years.  But no one knows exactly how the tradition got started.

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