Dave Hilton

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ on this Friday – December 2nd, 2022. Let’s learn something together:

  1. Last year, just 5% of the plastic waste consumed in the U.S. was recycled back into plastic.  The remainder was sent to landfills around the country.  Rates for glass were a little better, at 31% . . . and 50% of cans were recycled.  But nothing can match cardboard’s recyclability, which hovers annually between 90% and 91%.
  2. The reason so many Asian countries have names that end in “stan” is because it’s an ancient Persian word for “homeland” or “country.”
  3. Lil Wayne was a straight-A student.
  4. James Doohan, who played Scotty on “Star Trek”, fought in World War Two with the Canadian military and he was shot six times on D-Day in Normandy.
  5. The Caesar salad comes from Tijuana, Mexico.  It was created by an Italian immigrant named Caesar Cardini at a restaurant he owned there.

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