    I dispute the answer that the cannonball was the first thing to break the sound barrier as supersonic whips have been used for over 3000 years (see: mach1whips.weebly.com/the-history-of-the-whip.html under Supersonic Whips). Take that!!

    Can`t watch QI since Stephen quit,.....Toksvig is really cringey and unendearing--she reminds me of a smug and haughty bossyboots Headmistress everyone hated at school in the 1960s.

    To answer his question, the first man made object to break the sound barrier is a whip. The crack of a whip is a tiny sonic boom as the tip breaks the sound barrier.

    Fry needs to go back to QI, the new host is not bad. But she is not that informative and funny. Fry had more stories to tell.

    I have to say, as someone from Oldham, as cannon and ball are, that Bobby and Tommy accent was a fail lol

    That first one makes me think of my Grandmother, she was Polish and used to mix things up a bit sometimes, she once called a land rover a rover land, having said that her English was better than my Polish could ever be, I never actually heard her speak Polish, even my mum didn't, wish we had.

    If you like listening to Stephen and all his accents I highly recommend his books on audible mythos and heros as well as his readings of the Sherlock Holmes series.

    One of the best Irish accents I’ve ever heard a non-Irish person do fair play

  • daAnder71
    daAnder71 23 days ago +1

    Amazing how he hardly has an accent when speaking German. And indeed, German uses lots of "English" words that do not exist in the actual English language. "Handy" for mobile phone (because it's hand-held and it comes in "handy" when you need a phone on the go) is only one of them. "Oldtimer" for vintage car, "WLAN" ("wireless local area network") for Wifi, SMS ("short message service") for text message, "beamer" for projector, "show master" for talk show host are a few other weird examples.

    • ZeHoSmusician
      ZeHoSmusician 5 days ago

      'Handy' exists in the English language; obviously not in the sense of 'mobile phone' but 'convenient'...
      'Oldtimer' usually refers to someone who is, well, old; also a veteran...
      WLAN and SMS, both acronyms made from English words; but indeed in common English usage "one connects to Wi-Fi" or "one sends a text message"...
      (Do you use the shortfom "hi-fi" at all?)
      If you talk about a 'beamer' in the UK, they'll think you're referring to the car--a BMW...
      This is known as 'pseudo-Anglicism'; I have slightly less appropriate thoughts...

      If forced to answer, that would be my guess. I really was hoping they wouldn't cut off before the answer. I looked it up and it is believed this is the correct answer. Who knew the internet could be used for more than watching TheXvid?

    Stephen was totally entertaining and totally unPC, now , sadly like ALL BBC it has gone liberal left feminist anti male under the new, rather superior thinking presenter who likes to feel far too intelligent for her audience and pushing lesbian feminism PC agenda, and funny self mocking has stopped, replaced with the presenter trying to be wittier than the viewer she looks down at.

    I'm quite surprised a just how good his Aussie accent is.

  • aucourant
    aucourant 27 days ago +10

    Brilliant. The only one he got wrong was Brendan Behan. Behan had a strong working-class Dublin accent, not the generic 'Oirish' accent Stephen did. His Belfast accent was spot on though.

    • aucourant
      aucourant 8 days ago +1

      @eoinh1 That's why I said 'Oirish' instead of 'Irish'.

    1:54 that's exactly how a Hungarian would phonetically read 'pineapple upside down cake'.
    I can't believe Fry can't speak Hungarian!
    Also Pitagorasz is closer to the classical Greek pronunciation. Püthagoras, with an aspirated T. Definitely not pie - thagoras. Pü and mü, not pie and mew.
