Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Tuesday, September 12th, 2023. Let’s learn something together:
- The inventor of the Rubik’s Cube was Erno Rubik and it took him one month to solve it the first time. The Cube was first invented in Hungary in 1974, but it wasn’t sold as a toy puzzle internationally until 1980.
- The term “honeymoon” comes from a medieval tradition. When couples got married, their families would give them a bunch of honey wine to drink for one full, 28-day cycle of the moon. The wine was supposed to be an aphrodisiac.
- There are approximately 25 to 50 active serial killers in the U.S. at any given moment. That’s down significantly from the ’80s and ’90s, when there were FOUR TIMES that many. In 1987, there were 198 active serial killers. And a serial killer is defined as someone who’s killed two or more people at different times.
- Enya has never gone on tour. And she’s sold more than 80 million albums.
- A guy named John Holahan invented Lucky Charms in 1964, when he decided to see how it tasted to put pieces of Brach’s Circus Peanuts in his Cheerios.
