Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ (10/15/21)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Random Facts for your Friday – October 15th, 2021. Let’s learn something together:

  1. There’s a “McBoat” McDonald’s location in Germany, which has a float-thru instead of a drive-thru.  You paddle up to a dock, place your order, and it’s brought out to you by the staff.  (Here’s a video of this happening.)
  2. Barry White was a gang member as a teenager, but after he went to jail and heard an Elvis song on the radio, he decided to try to get into music.
  3. Coca-Cola wanted to raise their prices from 5 cents a bottle in 1953, so they asked the Treasury Department to start making a 7.5-cent coin. They declined, and Coke eventually raised the price to 10 cents.
  4. There’s a spot in the Pacific Ocean called Point Nemo that’s 1,670 miles from any land . . . which means it’s SO remote that the nearest humans are usually in space.
  5. The “birthday-number effect” is a psychological phenomenon where people prefer the numbers in their birthday over other numbers.

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