Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (11/30/23)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Thursday, November 30th, 2023. Let’s learn something together:

  1. During the filming of “The Outlaw Josey Wales”Clint Eastwood persuaded the producer to fire the director and Eastwood himself took over the role.  In response, the Directors Guild of America created the “Eastwood Rule” prohibiting an actor or producer from firing the director and then taking over.
  2. “Unchained Melody” was written as the theme for a prison movie in 1955 called “Unchained”.  The film didn’t do very well, but the song got an Oscar nomination and became a Number One hit that year.
  3. There are only 88 recognized constellations.  And it’s been that way since 1928.  The 88 constellations depict: 42 animals, 29 inanimate objects, and 17 humans or mythological characters.
  4. Your brain is 2% of your weight but uses 20% of your energy.  That means on the average day, a person uses 320 calories to think.
  5. Clocks run clockwise because that’s the direction shadows would move around a sundial.  At least in the Northern Hemisphere, where clocks were developed.

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