Hi,

I love the show! And now, after spending a lifetime listening to radio four, I have finally found a forum outlet for all those useless facts I've gathered. The're raring to escape from my head.

Welcome indeed!

Is any true fact truly useless?

It has just occurred to me to ask: is a useless fact collector a collector of facts that are useless, or a collector of facts who is useless?

My current trouble is... I canít remember if I heard some of my useless facts on QI first! I might come up with something but be afraid to post it in case it came from the show!

Did you know ambulance and police sirens are pitched at the same pitch as baby cries because that is inbuilt to draw attention... now was that a QI one or not!? If it is, then you do know it, and I look an idiot!

Ahem...anyway, welcome to QI.com!

i wish to attempt to unravel my madness on this forum to - i'm so glad i stumbled across it unintentionally..

i was in the midst of attempting to write an essay for one of my classes at university called 'the psychology of addiction and substance misuse'
and i was trying to search for some research that states there is a different effect for skunk weed and hash because - lets face it there is.
and then somehow i ended up on here..

hmm!!

p.s when i read anything on here or type anything - it's always in Stephen Fry's voice!

How do, nadine.

Another forummer, Moosh, is also a student in Manchester. Is it possible that you've passed each other in the halls of academia?
