Howard Goodall's QI theme tune contains a secret message in Morse code. The first bit is clearly WWW (di dah dah, di dah dah, di dah dah), and the rest is: 'AlanZeroAndStephenHero.com' (the 'zero' is the figure 0, five dashes, dah-dah-dah-dah-dah).

Alan is not a zero, he usually scores much less than that. :P

I watch QI, and I know Morse Code, but I never noticed that!

I just love a bit of backward masking!

If this works.....  This bit of ELO's 'Fire On High' when reversed says:  "The music is reversible, but time is not. Turn back!  Turn back!  etc..."

Actually.... stick with it.  It's a really good tune! (starting at 1:28ish)  Wait for the acoustic to kick in!

Queen's 'Another One Bites The Dust' allegedly contains a subliminal message.

Personally, I think it's crap!

Ok........ Last one............

'Revolution 9' by The Beatles says "Turn me on, dead man" when played backwards.

 

It was part of a publicity stunt claiming that Paul McCartney was dead.  That's why he's the only one wearing no shoes on the 'Abbey Road' front cover.

Also.... the plate on the VW Beetle (Beatle?) is LMW 281F.
IE:  Paul would have been 28 IF he was alive.

Interestingly, the VW Beetle on the cover of the Beatles' Abbey Road album, which belonged to a local resident and was there (parked half on the pavement) purely by chance, was sold at auction in 1986 for $23,000 and is now in the VW Museum in Wolfsburg, Germany.

Yes. It was parked there by chance, but it fitted in nicely with the publicity stunt.

If the Beatles had put it there, though, the registration would be JPM 281F.

Although it is in Europe politically, Greenland is geologically part of North America.

Emmanuel Macron is not, as some think, the recently elected president of France, but is in fact actually a type of biscuit made with almond, available from any reputable patisserie anywhere on the left side of the West Bank in Paris.

Japanese tourists when visiting Paris sometimes have to be sent back to Japan because they suffer from extreme shock sometimes called “Paris Syndrome.” It is because they were completely unprepared for the reality of Paris not being the greatest place in the world.

During the 1998 World Cup campaign, the England football team had a bet amongst themselves to see how many song titles they could shoehorn into their interviews.

The fastest red card in football/soccer history was 2 seconds. Lee Todd was sent off for foul language after he exclaimed “**** me that was loud” after the starting whistle.

If you were to book a ticket to Hollywood International Airport, you might put a bit of mileage on your hire car if you wanted to tour Beverley Hills etc, as it is actually at Fort Lauderdale in Florida.

The world's tallest air traffic control tower is at Thailand’s New Bangkok International Airport. At 434 feet, it’s as tall as a 40-story skyscraper.

Sadly, I have drawn a blank on finding a video of this.

The name Inca meant something like "The ruling family" and was not the name of a country or people. The countrys name was Tawantinsuyu. I suppose this goes a long way explaining why we name the country for its ruler, instead of its real name.

On the other hand the original name of the Aztec people, Mexihcah, did end up as the name of a country.

The word Kangaroo sadly probably does not mean "I dunno" in Aboriginal*, as according to the popular story about when one of the first settlers to land in the land of Australia asked one of the locals (shortly before infecting them with smallpox or something) what that funny animal was over there hopping about.

 

* this is probably not the correct term now, please amend accordingly and i apoligise for any distress that may have been caused

On the other hand a Blue Whale can't swallow anything bigger than a grapefruit.

Sadly, they are known as 'Alcoholics' now.

The politically correct term is Native American Australians, or something.
