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

  1. No U.S. President has ever used the Emergency Alert System (or its predecessors), possibly because the audio-only EAS messages might hinder the ability of the media to present live news coverage.  That said, it is used at a regional scale to share information about imminent threats to public safety, including severe weather and AMBER Alerts.  There have also been TONS of “tests” over the years, and a few false alarms.
  2. The marshmallows in Lucky Charms cereal have a name:  Marbits.
  3. Four of the main characters in “Frozen” are named Hans, Kristoff, Anna, and Sven – as a tribute to Hans Christian Andersen.  The movie is based off his story “The Snow Queen”.
  4. Belarus is the largest country in the world without any mountains, at 80,155 square miles.  Lithuania is the second-largest.
  5. The last time a song that was just an instrumental was number one on the Billboard chart was Jan Hammer’s “Miami Vice Theme” in October of 1985.

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