Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (6/13/24)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Thursday, June 13th, 2024. Let’s learn something together:

  1. Oranges are a result of crossbreeding between the pomelo and the mandarin.
  2. Whoever’s elected the president of France becomes the co-prince of the country Andorra, because of a strange treaty.  That makes the French president the only monarch in the world that’s elected, even though they’re not elected by Andorra.
  3. The term “dog days of summer” didn’t start because dogs were lying around in the heat.  It’s a reference to the star Sirius, which is called the Dog Star, and its position in the sky.
  4. Michael Crichton is the only person who’s ever had a book, TV show, and movie all top the charts at the same time.  It happened in 1994 when:  “Disclosure” was the number one “New York Times” bestseller, “ER” was number one in TV ratings, and “Jurassic Park” was the number one movie at the box office.
  5. The first e-book was the Declaration of Independence.  A student at the University of Illinois digitized it to distribute around the world in 1971.
