Just caught up on iPlayer, and thoroughly enjoyed the episode.

Loved the baby Strandbeest! Remarkable that something so apparently intricate can be printed in fully assembled form.

I saw one of the full-sized ones being taken for walkies through Exeter a couple of years back. Until seeing it close up, I hadn't realized how minimal the range of building materials was - as I recall, little more than plastic tubes and plastic bottles form all the structure, joints and mechanisms.

Hi all,

Thanks for the comments - I understand where the 'there are more interesting things to be said about joints' people are coming from, but we are only a 45 minute light entertainment TV show, to be fair. And we have to fit the knob-gags in somewhere.

Also, agree with most comments about Jack - hadn't been a huge fan of his before he came to our show, but thought he was excellent - perhaps the best newbie of the series IMHO.

Luckily the "k" series will be next so they can have a whole show to themselves.

There's fitting in knob gags and then there's Jimmy Carr.

He takes it to a level that just isn't needed on QI, and when discussions are getting sidetracked because he just has to shout another knob-gag (that's not even all that related) and then go HA HA HA HA HAAAAAAA after, it becomes quite tiresome.

Call me superficial, but for me there's the visual aspect as well. He just looks like an over-botoxed Lord Charles.

Gorilla skull top left, human skull bottom right. What counts as a chin? Does it necessarily have to be sharp?

The first four skulls all have lower jaws that slope backwards from the teeth. Only the human skull slopes forwards from the teeth (even if it's only just). I assume that's the definition of a chin.

That's what I was wondering. I guess that makes sense.

So the equivalent part of a gorilla's face is called a what then?

Lower jaw.

Also, another point was raised: what about people with inward-sloping jaws? Do they just not have chins?

Ah, interesting.
Although what does it mean if a person's chin is "weak", so to speak? Where does their mental protuberance go?

It's there, but not as pronounced.
