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

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

  1. “Gone With the Wind” is still the highest-grossing film of all time when adjusted for inflation.  The original “Star Wars” from 1977 is second.
  2. When the original Nintendo was released in America in 1985, it was only sold in New York City as a test market and it failed miserably.  Nintendo gave it a second test run a few months later in Los Angeles, and it did a lot better.
  3. Canberra became the capital of Australia because there was such a strong rivalry between the two biggest cities, Sydney and Melbourne, that the government decided people couldn’t handle it if they picked one over the other.
  4. Post-It Notes were originally called Press ‘n Peel when they came out in 1977.  But they didn’t start selling well until the name change in 1980.
  5. Chameleons don’t change their color to blend in with the environment, they do it to communicate with each other.

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