Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (8/4/23)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Friday, August 4th, 2023. Let’s learn something together:

  1. Starting in our 50s, most people have a noticeable reduction in body hair, especially in the legs.  The reason is unknown, but it could be due to poorer circulation, or lower hormone levels.
  2. Charles Darwin used to EAT all of the rare species he’d find to see what they tasted like.  He sampled puma, giant tortoises, iguana, armadillo, rat, and more.
  3. The guy who invented the USB wanted it to be flippable, but that doubled the cost, so we got USB devices that only plug in one way.  And always, somehow, the opposite of the way you try to plug them in on your first try.
  4. The phrase “Knock knock!  Who’s there?” comes from Shakespeare‘s “Macbeth”.
  5. Babies are born without kneecaps.  They just have cartilage that hardens into bone as they get older.

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