Can you walk on water? Then you have done no better than a straw.
Can you fly through the air? You have done no better than a bluebottle.

A Quite Interesting Approach to Education

Oct 4, 2021-- John Lloyd is the television producer and presenter of some of the most renowned UK comedies in recent decades, including Blackadder and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. In 2002, he made the pilot of "QI" (an acronym for "Quite Interesting"), a popular show which is now in its 18th series on the BBC. "When I started QI, only about five per cent of people that I talked to understood what it was really getting at. They said: "Oh, it's a game", but I would say: "No, it's a principle". The principle at the core of QI is that literally everything in the universe without exception is interesting -- if looked at long enough or closely enough or from the right angle.
