You need a mind as slippery as an Eel, and a talent for seeing things from a different angle to
understand H2IQ. A popular h2g2 quiz for several years, H2IQ returns to once again tease and
frustrate with questions and problems for you to solve. In each QED I will repeat a question once
used in the 'infamous' H2IQ quiz and all you have to do is answer it in the 'H2IQ Revisited'
conversation below. All those who give vaguely the correct answer will have their name printed in
the next published QED. Now for the question...
