Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (7/24/23)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Monday, July 24th, 2023. Let’s learn something together:

  1. Twix is short for “Twin Sticks.”
  2. The only person after the Founding Fathers who authored two Constitutional amendments was a Senator from Indiana named Birch Bayh.  He authored the 25th amendment in 1963, which created the line of presidential succession and the 26th in 1971, which lowered the voting age to 18.
  3. The trend of men leaving the bottom button of their suit unbuttoned started in the early 1900s, when King Edward the Seventh of England was too chubby to button the bottom of his jacket, which started the fashion trend.
  4. On men’s dress shirts, the buttons are on the right and the holes are on the left.  But on women’s shirts, it’s the opposite.  Supposedly it was to help chambermaids who dressed rich people, so they knew which shirts were for which person.
  5. The highest-rated TV movie ever was “The Day After” on ABC in 1983.  It was about a nuclear war between the U.S. and Soviet Union.  Steve Guttenberg was in it, and more than 100 million people watched.

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