I thought I had one too many beers when I was out last night and imagined this discussion taking place, but no it would appear it all happened after all. I've got to be honest, if I was Geo I'd have given up on the quiz a long time ago and kept the prize money in my wallet with the amount of times he's been told his answers are wrong.

 

I know that there have been a number of occasions when questions have been raised about the questions and answers in Geo's quiz, but surely if there are issues is it not better to discuss them?

Raising and/or discussing those issues does not necessarily constitute critcism of Geo and his quiz.

There are a number of commonly held beliefs which when examined closely prove to be incorrect. Any episode of QI gives evidence of  that.

 

I thought that Dug raised a valid and interesting point and that it might be fun to look at the various aspects of it since there is more than one way to turn something upside down.

I can only present the truth as seen by the likes of Paint and Photoshop.   :-)

thanks. 

 

After reading that, I think that turning upside down = turn 180 degrees when referring to a number. I think it's the fact that a number is usually up against something - a piece of paper, or hung on a door. Turning that upside down would be akin to flipping it round 180 degrees.
