I recently saw it as well
And I thoroughly enjoyed it
I didn't like the actor for Kirsty though,she was really annoying

The only one out of the three that i'm having trouble getting hold of is Johnny and the Bomb,
but the other two were great,I'll probably get round to reading it one day soon. :D

I thought Johnny and the Bomb was the best of the three. Well worth checking out. ;)

Try these for cheap copies of johnny and the bomb. I thought it was a fair bit better than the first two and it was also made into a tv series :D

Hi TPB

Re: "Only You Can Save Mankind"

Does anyone know which African Tribe whose closest word for 'enemy' is 'a friend we haven't met yet'.

I've Googled it and found nothing except a vague reference on a games forum to a Borneo/Malaysian tribe the apparent origin of a "stranger is a friend I haven't met yet". But pardon my french but that sounds like BS because the phrase is officially credited to vaudeville performer Will Rogers.

Are there any QI aficionados who can help. I wanted to use it as a quote for my blog. But there is enough unverified info on the net as it is without me adding to it.

All replies will be rewarded with gratitude and appreciation x

Hi there ProperGandhi and welcome to the site! :D

I suspect that the reference isn't really a reference at all - or even a fact. It's more likely to be Terry's idea of a platitude. ;)

The TV series was pretty good as well although they did mess around with the story
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..
