Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Tuesday, May 7th, 2024. Let’s learn something together:

  1. The term “fruit” is recognized botanically as anything that contains a seed or seeds.  But there’s no botanical definition for “vegetable.”  We’ve just come to use “vegetable” as a broad umbrella term for many types of edible plants.  Or PARTS of those plants, including roots . . . stems . . . leaves . . . and (immature) flowers, like broccoli and artichokes.
  2. The only Number One song that has the same word repeated MORE than three times in the title is “(Shake Shake Shake) Shake Your Booty” by KC and the Sunshine Band.
  3. Beer is made by converting the starch in a grain to sugar, then fermenting it to turn it into alcohol.  That means sake is technically a beer, because that’s exactly how it’s made with rice.
  4. Ripley’s Believe It or Not and Guinness World Records have the same owner.  It’s a Canadian company called the Jim Pattison Group.
  5. Toronto and Montreal are both farther south than Seattle.

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