Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (10/18/23)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Wednesday, October 18th, 2023. Let’s learn something together:

  1. The player who goes first in “Connect Four” can win 100% of the time . . . assuming you start in the center column, and you “play perfectly.”
  2. When marshmallows were created in the early 1800s, they were flavored using the root of a plant called the marsh mallow.  But it was hard to extract the sap from the root, so marshmallows haven’t been made out of actual marsh mallows since the late 1800s.
  3. The last college in the country to have intramural tackle football was Notre Dame.  They wore pads and helmets and everything.  It was dropped earlier this year, and THIS was the first fall without it.
  4. The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World only existed at the same time for 54 years, from 280 B.C., when the Colossus of Rhodes was completed in Greece, until 226 B.C., when it was destroyed by an earthquake.
  5. Mozart composed more than 20 pieces of music before he turned 10.

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