Mastermind Oops
« on: November 16, 2019, 03:59:27 PM »
Did anyone see the poor soul on Friday`s Mastermind, who is an aircraft engineer, who was asked the following question ?

What name is given to the force that acts upwards on the wings of an aircraft during flight, to counteract the weight of the aircraft ?  He said " upthrust ", when of course we all know it is ....

Oh dear, he is going to get some stick at work for that- oops. Oh the curse of the black chair.

Oh the curse of the black chair.

Very different in my case! Bumped off the show due to the worst case of "the runs" in human history.
