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

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Monday, October 23rd, 2023. Let’s learn something together:

  1. The British version of Dollar Tree is called “Poundland,” which makes sense when you think about it.  The British equivalent of the dollar is a pound.  Its biggest competitor was Poundworld until Poundworld went bankrupt in 2018.
  2. Jesse Owens won the 200 meters at the 1936 Olympics in Nazi Germany.  And the guy who came in second was ANOTHER African American – Mack RobinsonJackie Robinson’s older brother.
  3. In the book “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”, the word “Wonderland” is only used twice.
  4. The Backstreet Boys never had a number one hit.  The closest they came was when “Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)” got to number two in 1997.  ‘N SYNC DID have a number one song, with “It’s Gonna Be Me”.
  5. The reason “Rx” is used for prescriptions is because it’s a short version of the Latin word “recipe,” which means “take.”

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