This informative post will be posted on Saturday along with my usual writing. We can all appreciate some of the lesser known facts from around the world.
The use of the term “bigwig” to imply a person of great importance dates back to eighteenth-century England, when men of great influence relied on the size of their wigs to flaunt their wealth and social status.
The golf hole has a standard 4.25″ diameter because that was the size of the piece of pipe drain that was used to cut the first permanent holes at the Royal and Ancient Golf Club at St. Andrews in Fife, Scotland.
These facts have been discovered in I NEVER KNEW THAT by David Hoffman (2009).
