Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (5/17/22)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ on this Tuesday – May 17th, 2022. Let’s learn something together:

  1. Quinine is the component of tonic water that causes it to glow in the dark.
  2. There are nine countries in the world where your boss is more likely to be a woman than a man: Togo, Nigeria, Jordan, Laos, Burkina Faso, Saint Lucia, Cote d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast), Belize, and Jamaica.
  3. “Looney Tunes” cartoons were originally created by Warner Brothers as a way to showcase new music. Obviously the cartoons themselves became much more popular.
  4. The “red phone” that’s a direct connection from the Pentagon to Russia has never been red OR a phone. It was originally a teletype machine, then a fax machine and now it’s an email account.
  5. ‘N SYNC made a cameo in “Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones”. George Lucas’s daughter loved them, so he put them in the background of a scene. But they were cut out of the final version.

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