QI is the smartest comedy show on British television. The creator brings together 2,024 brain-tickling brand new facts to stop fans in their tracks: humans glow in the dark. The Pope drives a blue Ford Focus. The world's smallest computer is smaller than a grain of sand. Candyfloss was invented by a dentist. Nobody knows who named the Earth.
The mind-boggling, sock-popping, rib-tickling phenomenon that is QI have outdone themselves with this especially huge collection of facts, including:
Humans glow in the dark. 'Clinomania' is the overwhelming desire to stay in bed. In 17th Century Japan people warmed their feet by putting chilli peppers in their socks. Mrs Beeton published a recipe for a toast sandwich. Wheat has over five times as much DNA as humans. Less than 5% of the world's population lives in a genuine democracy. The word 'school' comes from a Greek word meaning 'free time'. Ten out of the 12 water companies in the UK still make use of divining rods. Coral can drown.
