Taxi guy last night says “Ah – you’re the quizmaster guy. Oh hang on – I heard this brilliant fact and I thought – I’ll tell that quizmaster guy when I see him… but I can’t remember it…”

He then proceeds to try and remember the fantastic fact but nothing came to mind and at the end of the short trip, it was left hanging there.

“I’ll remember it as soon as you’re out the cab” he said. Ah well: no fact for me.

To avoid this happening in the future, here is the correct procedure for what to do when you happen across a great fact or question that you tihnk I would find useful or amusing.

  1. Get a bit of paper
  2. Get a pen
  3. Write it down
  4. Carry the paper everywhere.
  5. When you eventually bump into me, tell me the fact

After that, I’ll filter it. Fifty per cent go in the bin (“fascinating” football facts usually). Thirty per cent go on the “hmmm” pile. The other twenty per cent get cheked, double-checked, and typed into the database.

Then we wait.

It might pop out at a round soon. It make take a year or more for it to emerge as a question.
