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.
