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

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Friday, February 2nd, 2024. Let’s learn something together:

  1. Furbys were HOT in 1999, and the FAA was concerned they could disrupt flight equipment.  There were rumors that some airlines had banned Furbys, but the FAA denied that.  They said, “We did recommend that Furbys should not be on when the plane is below 10,000 feet.”  And people with Furbys onboard were asked to remove their batteries.  A rep for Tiger Electronics, which made Furbys, said, “There have been no reports of Furbys interfering with any kind of takeoff or landing.”
  2. Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel met each other when they were 10, and they were both in the school play, “Alice in Wonderland”.
  3. Ketchup was originally made in England and the United States with mushrooms as the main ingredient, not tomatoes.  That lasted until the early 1800s, when tomato ketchup started getting more popular.
  4. We’ve never had a Native American president, but we HAVE had a Native American vice president.  Charles Curtis was Herbert Hoover’s vice president, and he was a member of the Kaw tribe.
  5. In World War Two, Japanese soldiers would taunt American soldiers during battles by yelling insults about Babe Ruth, like “to hell with Babe Ruth!”
