Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ on this Friday – April 22nd, 2022. Let’s learn something together:

  1. It’s Earth Day, and the most forested country in the world is:  Russia, with 815 million hectares.  Brazil is second, followed by Canada and the U.S. And in the U.S., the total forest area has INCREASED by 18 million acres since 1990. On average, that’s around 1,200 NFL football fields every day.
  2. There was one World War Two land battle fought on American soil – the Battle of Attu in Alaska in 1943.
  3. Humans are just 0.01% of all the life on Earth, but we’ve destroyed 83% of all wild mammals and 50% of the plants.
  4. There are 421 different words for snow in Scottish. Even though Scotland only averages about 15 to 20 snowy days a year.
  5. There’s a myth that lobsters are immortal, because they don’t show any signs of aging and seem to only die from external causes.  They do produce an enzyme that repairs their cells and helps their DNA to replicate indefinitely, but they can die naturally. It just takes a while. Some lobsters can live to be 100.
