Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (2/20/24)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Tuesday, February 20th, 2024. Let’s learn something together:

  1. Hum, Croatia holds the Guiness Record as the smallest town in Europe.  The town is smaller than a football field, and has a population of just two dozen people.  Still, Hum has a museum, an inn, two churches, and even a unique liqueur called ‘biska’ which can’t be found anywhere else in the world.
  2. Vanna White has worn a different dress on every single episode of “Wheel of Fortune” – more than 7,000 total.  But she doesn’t get to keep them.
  3. If you made $5,000-a-day since Christopher Columbus first arrived in America, you still wouldn’t have $1 billion today.  You’d finally get there in 2040.
  4. There were proposals in the 1600s to use an upside-down or crooked exclamation point as a way to show the sentence was ironic or sarcastic.
  5. There’s a patron saint of television.  It’s St. Clare of Assisi, and the Pope made her the patron saint of TV in 1958.

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