Hi everyone

I just need to clear up a qi fact that Danny Baker had said once on the show. He claimed that a population of Bees were killed off in either the 1st or 2nd world war (i can't remember which now).


Can this fact be confirmed as I am finding no joy in locating this

This will be of little factual help, but I imagine it's true - bee species are being wiped out very often these days. Many of the UK's bumblebees are now endangered...

I have to dispute something else Danny Baker said on the show a few series ago - it is impossible to lick your own elbow. I can lick mine! Honestly.

I can lick my elbow too. There is a somewhat poor quiz thing on Ch 4 in the mornings called The Deadly Knowledge Show that had a contestant who could lick his own elbow so the ability seems to be widespread.

Darn, I thought I was special. Oh well, I can still put my feet behind my ears. That's something I suppose.

I'd keep that to yourself round here if I were you.
