Here are Big Dave’s 5 Random Facts for your Tuesday – November 2nd, 2021. Let’s learn something together:

  1. America has 53,000 storage facilities . . .  that’s more than all the Starbucks, McDonald’s, and Subways combined.  The rest of the world only has 10,000 self-storage facilities.  We have seven square feet of self-storage for every man, woman, and child living in the United States.
  2. The plural of barista is baristi.
  3. Jimi Hendrix and Joe Pesci were in the same band in the 1960s . . . but not at the same time.  Early in both of their careers they briefly played guitar for a band called Joey Dee and the Starliters.
  4. It’s possible to be “de-knighted” in England . . . if you’ve committed a crime and are sentenced to at least three months in prison, the king or queen can de-knight you.  Five people have been de-knighted in the past century.
  5. Only 15 of the 49 U.S. vice presidents have gone on to be president . . . including Joe Biden . . . and only six of those 15 were elected to a second term.

Be sure to use one of these little tidbits in your life this week!
