Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Wednesday, September 6th, 2023. Let’s learn something together:

  1. September 6th is the day Piggly Wiggly was founded in 1916, 107 years ago.  It was notable for being the first “self-service” grocery store, where shoppers went through the store and gathered their own stuff, and put it in a cart or basket.  Before Piggly Wiggly, store clerks would assemble your order for you, weighing out dry goods from large barrels.
  2. The Straw Hat Riot of 1922 was an eight-day riot in New York City over whether men could wear straw hats after the summer was over.
  3. The first diet cola was Diet Rite, in 1958.  Then in 1963, Coca-Cola released Tab, and Diet Pepsi came out.  Diet Coke didn’t come out until 1982.
  4. Denmark managed to save over 99% of its Jewish population during the Holocaust by getting almost 8,000 Jews onto boats to Sweden before the Nazis could capture them.
  5. Barbie is from a fake town called Willows, Wisconsin.
