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

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

  1. Advance tickets to Woodstock in 1969, 54 years ago, were sold at record stores for $18.  That’s the equivalent of about $150.00 in today’s money.  And tickets were supposed to cost $24 at the door, which is $200 now.  Considering the whole experience, that would’ve been an incredible value, but MANY thousands of people ended up storming in WITHOUT paying at all.
  2. The U.S. had a lesbian First Lady.  Grover Cleveland’s sister Rose was the First Lady for the first 14 months of his first term, before he got married.  Rose went on to be with a woman named Evangeline Simpson and they’re now buried next to each other.
  3. An art historian spotted a rare, long-lost painting in the background of the movie “Stuart Little”.  It turns out the set designer bought it cheap at an antique store and no one knew it was worth over $250,000.
  4. One witness of Lincoln’s assassination lived so long he was able to be interviewed about it on TV.  Samuel Seymour was at Ford’s Theater and was interviewed about it in 1956, at age 96, on a show called “I’ve Got a Secret”.
  5. “Dallas Buyers Club” had such a low budget that the makeup artist, Robin Mathews, only had $250 to spend for the entire movie.  And she still won the Oscar for Best Makeup and Hairstyling.

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