Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (4/19/23)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Wednesday, April 19th, 2023. Let’s learn something together:

  1. Chile powder with an E and chili powder with an I are two different things.  Chile powder with an E is just dried, pulverized chiles.  Chili powder with an I is a mixture of dried, ground chiles with other spices, including cumin, peppercorn, oregano, and salt.
  2. The average American factory worker in 1890 was putting in a 100-HOUR workweek.
  3. Lou Bega, the guy who made the song “Mambo No. 5” isn’t from Cuba or any other Latin country.   His name is David Lubega, he was born in Germany, and he’s half Italian, half Ugandan.  He was inspired to make the song after a trip to Miami.
  4. Most watches are set to 10:10 in advertisements because it gives a nice symmetrical look, it makes sure the hands aren’t blocking the company’s logo on the watch, AND it sort of makes it look like the watch is “smiling.”
  5. David Prowse, the guy who played Darth Vader in the original “Star Wars” trilogy, was a weightlifting champion and helped Christopher Reeve bulk up for “Superman”.  So yes, Darth Vader was Superman’s personal trainer.

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