Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ (12/1/21)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Random Facts for your Wednesday – December 1st, 2021. Let’s learn something together:

  1. The longest down and distance in NFL history was when the New England Patriots faced 4th-and-63 in 1971.
  2. Charlie from the book “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” was originally supposed to be Black.  But Roald Dahl’s publisher told him to change his race to White to appeal to readers.  It was the early ’60s.
  3. Anthony Perkins, the actor who played Norman Bates in “Psycho”, found out he was HIV positive when the “National Enquirer” printed it.  Apparently someone leaked his blood test results to them.
  4. There are 27 actors who appeared in “Goodfellas” and went on to be on “The Sopranos”.
  5. The Energizer Bunny only exists in the U.S. and Canada . . . everywhere else, it’s the Duracell Bunny.  Duracell came up with the “battery bunny” and trademarked it around the world.  But they forgot to renew their North America trademarks in 1989, so Energizer grabbed it.

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