Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (6/10/24)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Monday, June 10th, 2024. Let’s learn something together:

  1. Richard Garfield, who created “Magic: The Gathering”, got a Ph.D. in combinatorial mathematics in 1993, the same year the game came out.  He is the great-great-grandson of former U.S. President James A. Garfield and his grand-uncle Samuel Fay invented the paper clip.
  2. There’s no official difference between the definition of a hill and a mountain.  The U.S. Geological Survey used to define a hill as being less than 1,000 feet, but they got rid of that rule in the mid 1900s.
  3. The average human being sprints at 15 miles-per-hour and that makes us slower than the average hippopotamus, which runs at 19 miles-per-hour.
  4. Tennessee has a law that specifically grants you permission to take any animal you accidentally run over for, quote, “personal use and consumption.”  In other words, you’re legally granted the dinner rights to your roadkill.
  5. Bolivia has the most official languages of any country, with 36.  Four of them are indigenous languages that are extinct.

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