      british television > american television. There is no arguing this.

      • SimonDPieman

        weeeeeeeeeell. I dunno.

        When you think about it, I mean reeeeeeaaally think about it. I'm from the UK, and I don't watch TV. I used to work in television production and I don't watch TV anymore. I just watch the Soprano's boxset.

    Jimmy Carr and Lee Mack. Gold.

  • James

    love this kinda stuff

  • Dantheloser

    "Does it only work with Einstein?" I spat out my coffee at that one. Almost got the computer screen…

  • LEGGO MY EGGO

    THIS IS FAKE!
    THERE'S AN OBVIOUS SHADOW CAST BY THE "INSIDE" OF THE FACE AS IT SPINS AROUND..

    Actually since the plastic isn't completely opaque, the shadow is bleeding through from the other side

    QI top show.

  • snoooobs

    The best way to get a post on the chive: post it on reddit.

    • http://twitter.com/StrongAsMeat @StrongAsMeat

      WTF is a reddit?

      Chive on!

    • http://www.facebook.com/dden45 Danny Duerden

      Or bbc.co.uk?

    • crowebar360

      If this is all posted on Reddit, why would you even come to this site at all. Seems like a huge waste of time on your part. Once your done browsing Reddit you can go outside and do something with all of your free non-chive time. You're welcome.

  • bennyhaha

    they got these as you walk through the entrance of the haunted mansion in disneyland

    • ant

      Thank you bennyhaha I was waiting for the reference

    • http://www.myspace.com/theamericanmaniacs BentWrenches

      Yes,Yes they do.

  • PieceofMind

    QI is just lovely.
    Thanks to whomever sent this in, irregardless of prior postings on reddit.
    You've made my morning, as most things involving Stephen Fry do.
    Have a sumptuous day.

      "Irregardless"… not a word

      • zoomba

        Regardless of irrespective opinions . . . you are correct.

        I was nailed on this word in college, and told it was "an Indiana thing." Never forgot it.

      • nemesis

        "irregardless" can be a word if we want it to be. I suggest Melvyn Bragg's brilliant and accessible "The adventure of English" for an interesting take on the fluidity of the English language.

        • CaptainStag

          Yep, or to quote what Stephen Fry (the host in this video clip) said on the matter, "usage is the arbiter final." As much as a new word or grammatical structure might irk you, if it catches on then there's no justifiable reason to call it wrong.

            He talks about this further in one of his podcasts. Also, his feelings on swear words (which he fuckin' loves)

  • Jacob

    Outside! Outside! Outside!

    • ....

      "Inside! Inside! Inside! ….. OHHHHhhhhh…."
      that is so what she said

  • teh_shard

    Alan Carr's reaction was more entertaining than the illusion itself. Still, seems like Fry is scraping the bottom of the barrel for crap to talk about if that old illusion is quite interesting. Next up on QI: Is it two faces or one vase? Duck or old woman?

    • teh_shard

      I meant Jimmy Carr… not Alan Carr. I was thinking of Alan Davies when I wrote that for some reason.

      • SimonDPieman

        is your name an anagram of retard?…

    • Dirtycod

      If I remember correctly they go on to say that this trick will not work on people with schizophrenia because of bad connections between the sensory and conceptual areas of their brains. Still scraping the barrel?

  • sleight

    QI is seriously the best show ever

  • Busternut

    QI is awesome. Stephen Fry should be knighted

    • TTFN

      I believe that he's been mounted, if that helps.

  • nemesis

    The US needs QI. I miss it. Not some bullshit watered down replacement like they did with Top Gear. The real deal with Fry et al.

  • Shant1k

    british humor > all

    mind blown. That's probably the coolest illusion I've ever seen

  • tommy2X4

    I want an Einstein jello mold!

  • kevin

    qi: best show ever

  • Guestimations

    QI is epicness with the all knowing Fry

  • Claude M.

    Works with other things besides faces – there's a classic set of black-n-white photo's of eggs, that are actually egg-shaped depressions.

    It is based on how our eyes interpret shadow and light, not faces.

  • 2cool4skool

    I neeeed one of those! With my face preferably.

  • krussader

    WHY WASN'T I INFORMED THAT THERE WAS A NEW SERIES OF QI?!?

    • Apple

      Because BBCA are a bunch of assholes who wont broadcast it in the US😦.
      There's also a mini series documentary following the first few shows this season.

  • Luxor

    That's wrinkling my brain.
