Synopsis

1,339 QI Facts to Make Your Jaw Drop by John Lloyd, John Mitchinson

Following the sensational success of 1,227 QI Facts to Blow Your Socks Off, the QI team returns with a fresh stack of facts to astonish and enlighten. Pigs suffer from anorexia. Wagner always wore pink silk underwear. Rugby School's first official rugby kit in 1871 included a bow tie. Lord Kitchener had four spaniels called Shot, Bang, Miss and Damn. It is impossible to whistle in a spacesuit. J. K Rowling has no middle name. The first computer mouse was made of wood. If there are any facts you don't believe, or if you want to know more about them, all the sources can be found on QI's website.
