Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (7/21/23)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Friday, July 21st, 2023. Let’s learn something together:

  1. According to the USDA, in 1986, the average American ate 18 pounds of ice cream.  According to the most recent data, that’s down one-third to just 12 pounds per person per year.
  2. A guy named William Willett invented Daylight Saving Time and his great-great-grandson is Chris Martin from Coldplay.
  3. Martin Van Buren is the only president who learned English as a second language.  He grew up speaking Dutch.
  4. Lynyrd Skynyrd is named after a gym teacher named Leonard Skinner.  Three of the members of the band had him in school, and got in trouble with him for having long hair.  So they named the band after him as a tongue-in-cheek homage.
  5. Bic’s ballpoint pens have a hole in the top of the cap, so if a child swallows one and it gets stuck in their throat, air can still get through.

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