As i'm sure most of you are aware, there remains the myth of Walt Disney's last written words being Kirt Russell (believed to be Kurt Russell) which was confirmed by Russell himself after seeing the document.
This website concludes it as false, due to the time frame between last workings at his study and death.
But what does the Qi community think of it.

Seems pretty conclusive - where's the mystery? Do we get a pwize?

Maybe QI's done this already, but another k-related last word question would be the "kiss me, Hardy" vs "kismet, Hardy" debate. Although according to Wikipedia his last word were neither -- they were "God and my country."

And any eagle eyed Qi viewer would tell you it was "Fan.... fan.... rub... rub... drink... drink..." :)

One of the things that was missed out on Qi last time round was that, not only was Nelson pickled in brandy, but the dispatches that carried the news of the victory and his death were carried back to London aboard HMS Pickle.

I can't seem to recall, but I don't think they mentioned either that the sailors supposedly drank the rum from Nelson's pickled cask (according to some legends it was rum, not brandy) to 'partake in his spirit'. Which is where the phrase "Nelson's blood" for rum comes from. According to this wikipedia entry that's also why it is called 'tapping the Admiral'.
Ahh... Naval yarn. :D http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nelson%27s_blood

Awwww, Hurrah for the B-Series!!! It's been ages, must re-watch that one. Thanks for finding that! Still - "Nelson's Blood" is a term for rum that comes from that myth, so at least my contribution was not completely redundant. ;D

Oh, no contribution is redundant, I just tend to have a good memory of what appeared on Qi and when :)

Some call it a gift, others suggest it's a curse, my sister reckons it's useless...

I think I'll join 'camp gift'. It's definitely not useless to recall things that are quite interesting. As for 'curse'... only you can answer that one. My 'curse' are birthdays, I just remember them. For people that I've long lost touch with even. (Earned me the nickname "rain man" at work. But it's all in good fun. Or so I tell myself.) Anyways, THAT's quite a useless one. Right, done doffcocking for now. ;)
