Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (2/14/24)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Wednesday, February 14th, 2024. Let’s learn something together:

  1. On “Sesame Street”, Cookie Monster’s cookies contain no oils, fats, or sugars, because they would stain the muppet.  Instead, they’re made of pancake mix, puffed rice, instant coffee, Grape-Nuts, and water with colored gobs of glue for chocolate chips.
  2. A pilot episode of “Game of Thrones” was made in 2009, but it’s never aired or been released.  A lot of it was rewritten and recast afterwards.
  3. The base of the Great Pyramid of Giza isn’t a perfect square.  The west side is about five-and-a-half inches longer than the east side.
  4. The largest city in the world in terms of area (with at least a million people) is Hulunbuir, in Inner Mongolia in China.  It’s 101,913 square miles, which makes it bigger than 42 U.S. states.  Technically, there’s a municipality in Greenland called Sermersooq that’s TWICE that size, bigger than California, but it only has about 24,000 people.
  5. From 1935 to 1937, restaurants in Wisconsin were legally required to serve cheese and butter with every meal.

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