Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (11/13/23)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Monday, November 13th, 2023. Let’s learn something together:

  1. The name Canola was originally a contraction of “CANadian Oil Low Acid” . . . but it’s now a generic term for some varieties of rapeseed oil.  Canola is different than natural rapeseed oil, which has much higher acid content.
  2. The Backstreet Boys were named after an outdoor flea market in Orlando, Florida called the Backstreet Market.  Teenagers would hang out there in the ’80s and ’90s.
  3. The biggest part in any Shakespeare play is Richard in “Richard 3”.  He has 1,152 lines, which is 32% of the play.
  4. The Buffalo Sabres drafted an imaginary Japanese guy in the 11th round of the 1974 NHL draft.  It’s because their general manager was bored with how long the draft was taking, and he invented a player named Taro Tsujimoto as a protest.  The NHL didn’t realize it was fake until the next year.
  5. The Secret Service agent who saved Ronald Reagan’s life during an assassination attempt in 1981 said he was inspired to become an agent when he was a kid and he saw the movie “Code of the Secret Service” starring Reagan.
