  1. FedEx almost went under back in the ’70s in their early years . . . they only had $5,000 in the bank and needed to pay off $24,000.  They’re still around because the founder took the last $5,000 to Vegas, gambled it on blackjack, and won $27,000.
  2. The first professional football league in America was called the National Football League . . . but it has no relation to the modern one.  It lasted one season in 1902 and featured a mix of football players and pro baseball players.
  3. The most common answer . . . or, technically, “question” . . . on “Jeopardy” is “What is China?”
  4. The first African-American to win an Oscar for something other than acting was Isaac Hayes.  He won Best Original Song for “Theme From Shaft” in 1971.
  5. The reason Hitler shaved his mustache down to a square is because he had trouble fitting a regular mustache into a gas mask.

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