O dear. I started googling and got all tangled up in various articles: Was Christ a jew; Jesus was not a Jew; Can Jews believe in Christ; Jesus Christ, a Jew for Allah.....

Whoops. Sorry about that.

An unlawful act is not necessarily an illegal one. But are there any circumstances in which an illegal act is not necessarily an unlawful one, or is illegal merely a subset of unlawful?

How about Infinity? Surely it is a broad enough topic for a show - it spans quite a few different fields. There's mathematcs, physics, philosophy, monkeys...

I'd imagine infinity will come up in a show in the I series.

I also imagine that that segment will result in me writing yet another rant in the Green Room about the portrayal of mathematical topics on Qi. But so it goes.

Amongst the new words included in the forthcoming edition of the Collins English Dictionary include "intexticated", which is a driver who is distracted while writing or reading texts on their mobile.

Annoyingly, another entry is "BGT". I say if BGT can make into Collins, we should go more upmarket and try and get "QI" or "General Ignorance" into the OED.

Ignition, or why wasn't this place completely destroyed when a fire broke out?

Re ignition; explosions don't have to involve explosives. Flour, or any sufficiently fine powder, can explode if diffused to the right [or wrong...] density in an atmosphere containing oxygen, and a spark applied.
