[quote="jjm239"]No offense to Americans (yeah right), but they don't really deserve QI...[/quote]

Maybe "deserve" is a little harsh? I think it must be said that certain elements will certainly be lost on an American audience...plus they will just fill the show with ads and endorsements.

I can see it now: Carson Daily, US Qi master - "fingers on buzzers for the general ignorance round....brought to you by Gatorade!!!"

Gatorade being a charity for indigent Floridan reptiles?

We went to Gatorland when we were in Florida in February. Those damn reptiles were so overfed they barely raised a ripple of interest in the chicken bits that were dangled over them.

If they suffered from flatus, you could say it was all gas and gators.

Hey, I am American. I promise to not offer ads or (what was the other thing?) (we have short attention spans) 0h yeah endorsements. One thing a short attention span does for us is that we don't have to remember from long ago if we just forgot something a short while ago.

I've never been here before, so what is the purpose and or intent of this particular forum?

Is this a UK forum? They have this rather odd sense of humor so it may be.... if so now for something completely different...

I got my way over here (wherever "here" may be) by discussing on another forum how to figure out (yes, Americans like to use the term "figure out") the precise times a minute hand on a clock will superimpose on the hour hand. Someone on that forum said someone on this forum ( ok, he said she said - right?) had the correct answer for every hour on the clock. I think her name was Silvia?

Hi mayflow and welcome :-)

I am a Brit by origin but actually live on your side of the Atlantic, in Maine.

You can find episodes of QI on Youtube if you search under QI and Episode - if you search QI on its own it tends to come up with a lot of stuff about Chinese energy, and this forum has very little to do with that.

QI stands for "Quite Interesting" and it is a comedy panel show that revolves around questions that might sound either obvious or bizarre, but have real and interesting answers, and a team of guests who try to answer them and have fun while they're doing it.

Those of us who enjoy the show, or just like chatting to the kind of people who do, or who like to research odd things that interest us and post about them, are the people who post on this forum.

Browse around and join in some conversations :-)

I do indeed listen to "Wait Wait, don't tell me!" Also to the Vinyl Cafe (though that's Canadian) and of course Prairie Home Companion.
