Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (11/28/23)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Tuesday, November 28th, 2023. Let’s learn something together:

  1. This past Sunday, the Denver Broncos beat the Cleveland Browns 29-12, and that score was a “scorigami,” which is a term for a final score that has never happened in NFL history, across more than 17,500 games.  Unique scores like this can happen a few times a season.  The most common final score in NFL history is 20-17.  That’s happened 286 times, most recently on November 5th, when the Washington Commanders beat the New England Patriots by that score.
  2. Scientists estimate that there are a trillion different species on Earth, but 99.999% haven’t been discovered.  Meaning they’re mostly microorganisms.
  3. No woman has ever officially run a mile in less than four minutes.  The women’s world record is four minutes and seven seconds.  That was set this past July by Faith Kipyegon from Kenya.  The men’s record is three minutes and 43 seconds.
  4. The guy who wrote Elizabeth Taylor’s obituary for the “New York Times” died before SHE did.  He wrote it while she was still alive, the way they do with some celebrities.  He died in 2005.  She died in 2011.
  5. The word “vodka” comes from the Russian word “voda” which means water.
