Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (5/28/24)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Tuesday, May 28th, 2024. Let’s learn something together:

  1. Basketball legend Bill Walton passed away yesterday.  Bill and his brother Bruce are the only brother combination to have won an NBA title AND played in the Super Bowl.  And in 2010, Bill and his son Luke Walton became the first father-son combo to have each won MULTIPLE NBA titles.
  2. Purple Skittles aren’t grape in other countries.  In England and Australia they’re black currant.
  3. The air in a bag of potato chips is actually nitrogen, not oxygen. The nitrogen keeps the chips from going stale.
  4. Mary Shelley got the idea for “Frankenstein” from a nightmare.
  5. There are four state capitals named after presidents:  Jackson, Mississippi . . . Lincoln, Nebraska . . . Jefferson City, Missouri . . . and Madison, Wisconsin.  Washington D.C. is obviously named after a president too.

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