Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (4/19/22)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ on this Tuesday – April 19th, 2022. Let’s learn something together:

  1. At eight letters, “couscous” is the longest word in the English language where you can’t tell visually if it’s been written in all upper case, or all lower case letters.
  2. Albert Einstein once said that the Theory of Relativity was his best idea, but his second-best was adding in eggs while he cooked soup to make soft-boiled eggs without having to wash an extra pot.
  3. There were 27 letters in the English alphabet in the early 1800s, the extra letter was the ampersand. It came after Z, and it was pronounced “and” but it was dropped from the alphabet before the end of the century.
  4. John Lennon took a five-year break from writing music after his son was born in 1975, but he was inspired to get back in the game the first time he heard “Rock Lobster” by The B-52’s.  He just loved how it sounded.
  5. The record for the most points by a pair of brothers in the NHL is 2,861 – Wayne Gretzky scored 2,857, and his brother Brent Gretzky scored four.
