Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (11/27/23)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Monday, November 27th, 2023. Let’s learn something together:

  1. Bryan Cranston didn’t actually cook meth on “Breaking Bad”, of course, but chemists from the DEA did explain “the process at [a] high level” so that his performance could be more convincing.
  2. Muhammad Ali’s birth name was Cassius Clay, but before he changed it, he changed his name to Cassius X for two weeks in 1964.
  3. When George W. Bush was running for president in 1999, he was asked to name his favorite childhood book, and he picked “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”.  Turns out it was published in 1969, when he was 23, the year after he graduated from Yale.
  4. The “Hokey Pokey” has that name in America, Canada, and Australia, but it’s called the “Hokey Cokey” in England and New Zealand.
  5. The piano that Freddie Mercury played when Queen was recording “Bohemian Rhapsody” is the same piano Paul McCartney played when The Beatles were recording “Hey Jude”.

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