Here are Big Dave’s 5 Random Facts for your Wednesday – October 27th, 2021. Let’s learn something together:
- The San Diego Zoo’s Safari Park is home to two platypuses, and they’re the ONLY platypuses outside of Australia.
- The “Guinness Book of World Records” exists because the director of Guinness Breweries had an argument in 1951 over which game bird is faster – the golden plover or the red grouse. He thought there should be a book to help settle bar arguments, so he created the book of world records. And the faster bird is the golden plover, by the way.
- Sylvester Stallone asked Queen for the right to use “Another One Bites the Dust” for “Rocky 3” but they declined. So he asked Survivor to write a song, and they came up with “Eye of the Tiger“.
- Only two British musical acts have had their debut album hit #1 in the U.S.: The Spice Girls, with “Spice” and One Direction, with “Up All Night”.
- One single Google search takes more computing power than the entire moon landing mission in 1969.
