Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ on this Tuesday – August 23rd, 2022. Let’s learn something together:

  1. Competitive art used to be an Olympic sport.  Between 1912 and 1948, the Olympics awarded medals for music, painting, sculpture, and architecture.
  2. In London in the 1800s, mail was delivered 12 times a day.
  3. Despite what the “Jurassic Park” movies say, velociraptors were only about three feet tall and 30 pounds.  There’s also no evidence they hunted in packs, they were definitely too dumb to communicate, and they probably had feathers.
  4. There’s a sacred island in Japan called Itsukushima where it’s illegal to die.  No one has broken that law and died there since 1878.
  5. Amish people are not required to get Social Security numbers.

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