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

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Random Facts for your Thursday – March 3rd, 2022. Let’s learn something together:

  1. When people are struck by lightning, the mark that appears on them afterward looks like a detailed silhouette of a fern tree.  This occurs because the capillaries beneath their skin rupture from the shock of the electrical discharge. In most cases, the marks are not permanent and can even disappear within days.
  2. The word “diarrhea” comes from a Greek word that means “flowing through.” (The word is “diarrhoia” . . . and we think it’s pronounced the same way.)
  3. Oman is the only country in the world that starts with the letter O, Qatar is the only country that starts with Q and Yemen is the only country that starts with Y. There’s no country that starts with X.
  4. Dr Pepper was created to smell like the inside of a drug store.
  5. Doing 179 espresso shots would be enough caffeine to kill you.

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