Hi

If you're new here you may want to learnt about an ongoing campaign to get QI shown in the USA by BBC America. Those of you in the USA will certainly be interested but if you're not we would still like your support. Spreading QI through out the world is one way to ensure it's survival and if you live in neither the UK or USA, the success of the petition will hopefully get other stations to take up the series in other countries.

Please click here to read the petition and sign it.

I am signature number 2785 (yay!)
This is quite an interesting number, being one of the few Carmichael numbers or pseudoprimes. Carmichael numbers are rare (there's only about a million of them in the first 10^13 integers, and they are special because they are able to fool Fermat's primality test.

Thop

I signed when I joined as a tribute to the USA QIers. And by the time QI would air around these parts, I'll probably be in London or the states myself (:

Well, I have no idea what that means, but I went to find out here and it doesn't include 2785 as a Carmichael Number. Am I missing something?

Given the ridiculous obscenity issues in the U.S. (even on as relaxed a channel as PBS), I'm fearful that we'll not get to see QI in the states any time soon. However, would it be possible for the BBC to release DVD's of QI in the American format, so that at least we could purchase DVD's and not be confined to viewing them on our computers? Who would one contact to suggest this?

BTW, I became a fan watching episodes -- or parts of episodes -- on youtube. So perhaps the BBC ought not to be so hasty in deleting stuff from youtube after all.....

What does that mean? Is QI obscene? :-S
