Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (1/4/24)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Thursday, January 4th, 2024. Let’s learn something together:

  1. A time capsule was buried in front of the Sleeping Beauty castle in 1995 as part of Disneyland’s 40th anniversary celebration.  It won’t be opened until 2035, for the park’s 80th anniversary.
  2. In polo, it’s been illegal to hold your mallet in your left hand since 1974, because if two right-handed people are charging at a ball from opposite directions, the horses won’t collide.  But if a righty and lefty are, the horses will hit each other.
  3. Ebola is capitalized because it’s named after the Ebola River in Africa, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
  4. The first basketball was a soccer ball.  When the game was first being played in the 1890s, that was the best option available.
  5. Almost every case that goes to court in Japan ends in a guilty verdict, the country has a 99.9% conviction rate.

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