Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Wednesday, August 30th, 2023. Let’s learn something together:

  1. New Jersey is the only state where every county is deemed “urban” by the Census Bureau.
  2. Every passport in the world has a cover that’s red, green, blue, or black.
  3. Ketchup probably got its name from a Chinese sauce from the 1600s called koe-chiap.  It was made of pickled fish brine and spices.
  4. The woman who invented the sports bra made her first prototype out of two jockstraps.  Her name is Hinda Miller and she helped invent it in the 1970s.  She eventually went on to be a state senator in Vermont.
  5. Disney used “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” with an “F” in “Dwarfs” instead of “V-E-S” . . . because “dwarves” didn’t become the more popular spelling until J.R.R. Tolkien used it in “The Hobbit” a few years later.

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