Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Friday, October 6th, 2023. Let’s learn something together:

  1. The most common paper currency in the U.S. WAS $1 bills until 2017, when they were surpassed by $100 bills.  20 years ago, there were 8 billion $1 bills in circulation, compared to 4.6 billion $100 bills – almost half as many.  Now, there are 14.3 billion $1 bills out there, compared to a whopping 18.5 billion $100 bills or 30% MORE.
  2. If you’re a woman born between 1941 and 1966 who grew up in middle America, you’ve been the “Time” Person of the Year at least FOUR times.  They gave it to Baby Boomers in 1966, Middle Americans in 1969, American women in 1975 and “You” in 2006.
  3. Ben and Jerry became friends in middle school when their gym class had to run around the track and they were the two slowest.
  4. The country Myanmar doesn’t use the metric system or the Imperial system that we use in the U.S.  They have their own system, the Burmese units of measurement.
  5. “Wheel of Fortune” brings in more money from political TV ads than any other show.  A ton of people watch it, and their average age is over 65, which is exactly who candidates want to target.
