Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ on this Tuesday – June 28th, 2022. Let’s learn something together:

  1. The original “Friday the 13th” movie is considered a horror classic now. But it was nominated for a Razzie for “Worst Picture” when it came out in 1980. It lost out to “Can’t Stop the Music”.
  2. Spike Lee’s father was the bass player on Simon and Garfunkel’s original recording of “The Sound of Silence”.
  3. The town of Erwin, Tennessee hanged an elephant in 1916 because it killed a circus trainer.
  4. There are approximately 20 quintillion animals living on Earth. That’s 20 billion-billion, which is a two followed by 19 zeroes.
  5. The term “big bang theory” was coined by a British scientist in 1949, who hated it and was trying to mock it.
