Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (2/21/24)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Wednesday, February 21st, 2024. Let’s learn something together:

  1. According to the CDC, January is America’s deadliest month.  February is second, followed by March and December.  August is the least deadliest month.  And it’s a big difference, about 20% more people die in January than in August.  Winters are deadlier because cold changes our bodies.  As temperatures drop, our blood vessels contract, and our hearts work harder.  If you’re already at risk of a heart attack or stroke, it’s more likely to hit in winter.
  2. Colgate toothpaste was sold in jars when it came out in 1873 and one of the ingredients was SOAP.
  3. Whenever characters on “The Big Bang Theory” wore superhero t-shirts, they were always for characters from DC Comics, like Superman and Batman.  That’s because the show and DC Comics are both owned by Warner Brothers.
  4. The Beatles spent the most weeks at number one on the Billboard album charts.  When you factor in all their albums, it’s 132 weeks total.  That’s more than two-and-a-half years.  Taylor Swift is next at 69 weeks.
  5. Only FIVE of the 30 MLB teams have never won the World Series:  The Milwaukee Brewers, the Tampa Bay Rays, the San Diego Padres, the Seattle Mariners, and the Colorado Rockies.  The Texas Rangers were on this list up until about four months ago.  That’s the fewest of the four major sports leagues — 12 NFL teams have never won a Super Bowl, 11 NHL teams have never won the Stanley Cup, and 10 NBA teams have never won the NBA championship.  The NBA’s Denver Nuggets were on this list until last summer as were the NHL’s Vegas Golden Knights.
