Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (9/27/23)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Wednesday, September 27th, 2023. Let’s learn something together:

  1. No known hurricane has ever crossed the equator and it’s very rare that they form anywhere near the equator.  That’s because of the Coriolis Effect – the force that causes the air to swirl.  In the Northern Hemisphere hurricanes spin counterclockwise, and in the Southern Hemisphere they spin in a clockwise direction.  So to cross the equator, they’d effectively have to REVERSE direction, which would be wild.
  2. Louis Armstrong is the oldest person to have a number one single on the Hot 100.  He was almost 63 when “Hello, Dolly!” hit number one on the Billboard chart in May of 1964.
  3. Skype’s name is a shortened version of its original name, “Sky Peer-to-Peer.”  The people who created it originally wanted to shorten it to “Skyper,” but that domain name was taken.
  4. The only state you can type with one row of keys on the keyboard is Alaska.
  5. Before Jim Jones became a cult leader and eventually led more than 900 people to their deaths, he worked as a door-to-door pet monkey salesman in Indiana.

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