I'll leave you with the observation of former Prime Minister David Lloyd George. [vaguely Irish accent] "The most dangerous thing in the world," he said, only in a Welsh accent, "Is to, to try to leap a chasm in two jumps." So from all of us at QI, good night.

Stephen: Now, what was the most dangerous military stratagem ever devised?
Jo: Was it Hannibal's first crack at the Alps with chihuahuas?

Jimmy: I heard a brilliant story about... You know the Darwin Awards? Obviously, every year, they have these Darwin Awards for people taking themselves out of the gene pool. And there was a brilliant story of a guy that... He was, you know, drunk one night, and he decided, "Right, what I'm going to do is bungee jump." His mates went, "You won't be able to do it." "I will." He just got a tow rope and jumped off a bridge. Obviously the foot just... snapped off, and he landed in a freezing river. With no feet. He couldn't swim.
Stephen: So take me back, because it's a good letter "D", for Darwin... I don't know the Darwin Awards. When you say "take yourself out of the gene pool"...
Jimmy: Well, it's stories from 'round the world of people that have killed themselves in such stupid ways...
Stephen: Oh, actually killed themselves. Right.
Jimmy: There's another brilliant one of a guy that was sitting in his back garden, and he had... got a couple of balloons and filled them up with helium or whatever, so that he would float. He thought, "It would be brilliant if I could float and drink beer. Wouldn't that be lovely? It would be... be so comfy in a garden chair." He went about a mile up and froze to death.
Stephen: What an arse! How lovely!

Stephen: The bungee strap is a British invention. They never, ever, ever break.
Jimmy: That must be... That must be a real comfort to the families of the people that the rope was too long. "You can have the rope if you want; it's still perfect." "Oh, thanks for that."
Alan: He can have another go with the coffin. Oh, into the grave, out of the grave, into the grave...
Stephen: Oh, it must happen. I want that to happen.

Stephen: Another dangerous sport is Russian Roulette, of course.
Alan: That's dangerous.

Jo: Do you get yours (trousers) made specially by the Queen's tailor?
