Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (5/13/24)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Monday, May 13th, 2024. Let’s learn something together:

  1. The tiny, impossible-to-use handles on maple syrup bottles are a “skeuomorph,” which is a design element that helps you recognize what something is, even if it doesn’t have a purpose beyond that.  The tiny handles have been added for almost 100 years, to reference old stoneware jugs maple syrup used to be stored in.  Those jugs had handles large enough to actually hold.
  2. President Obama was only the 14th of the first 44 presidents to serve two full terms in office.  Joe Biden or Donald Trump could become the 15th.
  3. Six Flags got its name because of the six different nations Texas has been a part of:  Spain, France, Mexico, the Republic of Texas, the United States, and the Confederacy.
  4. Most snails have both male and female genitalia, so they can quickly and easily mate with basically any other snail.
  5. Best Buy was originally called Sound of Music.  They launched in 1966, and the name wasn’t changed to Best Buy until 1983.

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