    Give a man the implement to do so, and he will draw a dick.

    The strangest I think is the likes of eastern block europeasants, asians, africans, and especially muslims wanting to come to a small island in northern Europe that doesn't want them there! Totally mind boggling...!

    Okay, come on panelists -- it's a frickin' chicken. How far did you think it could fly?

    Coincidence? Probably.

    The migration of “refugees”to Europe bypassing safe rich countries to go to Germany is pretty weird.

    For clarity, the 300m is the change in _elevation,_ not the horizontal distance they travel. For some reason, the North American blue grouse _(Dendragapus obscurus,_ also called the dusky grouse) tends to prefer higher elevations during cold seasons, and lower elevations when it breeds in warmer seasons. That's still not terribly far, since their habitat is in the Rocky Mountains which, being mountains, are rather steep.

    They stay local as most Americans don't have passports.

    Does that actually count as a migration? no more significant than an annual holiday since they actually return home.

    That's not a migration, that's a commute.

    Ahh, the QI team missed something here. If the board started flashing with the word "Penis" it would have been turned into a .Gif and gone viral. Free publicity. Hire me.

    I'm amused to notice every panellist drew a migration passing through the British Isles.

      Some of the clips are from the QI XL episodes (hour long) rather than the standard half-hour QI episodes.

    When he said Alan was right I thought he meant it was actually a cock and balls

    I'm not so sure they have the 300 yards quite right. The 300 (meters, actually), is the change in elevation between higher foraging ground and lower nesting ground. So, the real distance might be quite a bit longer, still very short as migrations go. But the change in climate is likely as drastic as other bird migrations of thousands of kilometers.

    Surely 300 yards isn’t a “migration” - by definition?

    • MisterFoxton
      MisterFoxton 28 days ago +1

      Pretty sure migration is moving to a different habitat. Going from a hilltop to a sheltered valley would be a pretty clear habitat change. Especially if it's a seasonal change where you wouldn't find them in one or the other dependent on season.

    • CommaCam
      CommaCam Month ago +5

      The definition seems broad enough it can handle just about any movement from one place to another. I suppose there should be some exceptions though. I don't exactly "migrate" to the deli when I want a sandwich, so perhaps the key is whether you're actually decamping from one place to another. That would rule out my trips to the deli but would include what these birds do, which is to decamp seasonally from one place to another and then back again.

    In true North American form they don't travel as much as the rest of the world.

    • Mathew Fullerton
      Mathew Fullerton Month ago +2

      Rest of the world? Other than Europeans, most of the world DOESN'T travel far (think of the billions of average Chinese and Indians that don't). And most Europeans don't travel any further than those in the U.S.. I travel further in my own country going to LA than a Brit traveling to Italy.

    Alan is the most childish member of this show, in so many ways.

      @Jon Bastian dumb-arses, and licences

    • Jon Bastian
      Jon Bastian 27 days ago

      Sigh. You say that like it's a bad thing. Hint: Alan is a staple on the show, and a producer, and part of him always being to the host's right is the point. He is our everyone character who stands in for the majority of dumb-asses with TV licenses playing at home in order to feel smart.

      @Brian Juel Pedersen Strange ways, indeed!
      There must have been a reason: memories, less hassle than travelling across the country with children, toys, luggage, pets and granny or just they thought "what the heck, the kids won't know the difference anyway. Let's drive around for 3 hours and stay just 5km from home. We can even come back to water the flowers!" ; )

    • Brian Juel Pedersen

      My parents had a summer house for some years when I was a kid. The summer house was just a regular small and old villa with a not particularly well maintained garden; just like the one where we lived for most of the year. And it was just a few kilometers away and the flat landscape did not have a view of any lake or ocean at any of the locations. I thought it was stupid to go to the "summer house" to stay for days on end when I was a kid and I still do.

    If anyone was going to draw a cock and balls it just had to be Alan. Quite frankly, I’d have been disappointed in him if he hadn’t. 🍆
