Overview

The Idler 41: QI Issue by Tom Hodgkinson, Dan Kieran, John Lloyd, John Mitchinson

As Dorothy Parker once sagely noted, curiosity is the cure for boredom, but there is no cure for curiosity. It is endless and free, unlike television, wine, or the water in our taps. It is more pleasurable and reliable than sex. It's what makes us human. Spend time with the curious minds of Stephen Fry, Philip Pullman, science writer Steve Jones, and more. Guest editors for this issue of Idler are John Lloyd, founder of QI and the producer of Blackadder and Spitting Image, and John Mitchinson, coauthor with Lloyd of The Book General of Ignorance. They have filled every inch with absurd and curious facts and ideas.
