QI

QI is the world’s most impossible quiz. On the face of it, QI (short for Quite Interesting) is a TV comedy panel game like any other. It has a chairman and four contestants, who are asked questions and get points for their answers. But there the resemblance ends.

The questions on QI are so difficult that the panellists almost never get one right. So the chairman only gives points for interesting answers, regardless of whether they are correct, or even relevant. In theory, it is quite possible for the most ignorant person in the room to win the game. In practice, this rarely happens. This is because the game is booby-trapped to the disastrous disadvantage of people who believe everything they are told.
