Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (4/17/23)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Monday, April 17th, 2023. Let’s learn something together:

  1. Many countries rejected using forks when they were first invented, because they considered them excessive, unnecessary, and “too feminine.”  The Roman Catholic Church even spoke out against forks, stating that God already gifted us with the perfect eating utensils:  Our fingers.
  2. Salvador Dali’s famous painting “The Persistence of Memory” with the melting clocks is only nine-and-a-half inches by 13 inches, slightly larger than a regular piece of paper.
  3. Virginia extends further west than West Virginia.
  4. Granny Smith apples are named after Maria Ann Smith.  She moved to Australia from England, bought an orchard, and accidentally created a new kind of apple by planting seeds from French crab apples.
  5. Red Twizzlers don’t contain any actual licorice, they’re mostly corn syrup.

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