Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ on this Thursday – June 30th, 2022. Let’s learn something together:

  1. Ralston Purina introduced the first version of Chex Mix in 1985.  Yes, the same Ralston Purina that sells dog food.
  2. Only one person in history has ever been hit by a meteorite.  A woman named Ann Hodges in Sylacauga, Alabama was in her house in November of 1954 when a chunk of a meteorite broke through her ceiling and hit her in the thigh.  She survived.
  3. Moths rub their genitalia together to put out a signal that jams bat sonar.
  4. Pound for pound, the strongest organism on Earth is . . . GONORRHEA bacteria.  They can pull about 100,000 times their body weight, which would be like a human pulling over 15 million pounds.
  5. The blood that Alfred Hitchcock used in the shower scene in “Psycho” was chocolate syrup . . . it looked more like blood in black-and-white than anything else they could find.

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