Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (3/16/22)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Random Facts for your Wednesday – March 16th, 2022. Let’s learn something together:

  1. A lion’s roar can be heard up to five miles away.
  2. There’s only one company left in America that manufactures silverware – Sherrill Manufacturing Inc. in Sherrill, New York. Every other manufacturer is now overseas.
  3. About 15,000 books have been written about Abraham Lincoln. That sounds like a lot, but it’s WAY fewer than John F. Kennedy. He’s been the subject of more than 40,000 books.
  4. Penguins can’t taste fish – their taste buds only taste sour and salt, and the taste of fish comes from the umami taste bud. A genetic study suggests they lost three of the five basic tastes long ago in evolution. But it doesn’t matter, since penguins just swallow the fish whole without bothering to taste them.
  5. While Brad Pitt was playing Achilles in “Troy”, he injured his Achilles tendon.

Be sure to use one of these little tidbits in your life this week!
