Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ on this Wednesday – May 18th, 2022. Let’s learn something together:

  1. Brown sugar is no different than white sugar. The only difference is that some of the molasses that gets removed in the refining process is added back in.
  2. The idea for tin foil hats came from a science fiction short story called “The Tissue-Culture King” in 1927. The main character uses a hat made out of foil to block people from reading his mind.
  3. If there was a hole going all the way through the Earth and you fell in, it would take about 38 minutes for you to get to the other side.
  4. The “lower bar” on women’s bikes is antiquated. It was originally designed that way because of the heavy dresses women wore in the late 1800s.
  5. Treadmills were invented in the early 1800s as a way of punishing prisoners in England.
