After watching Countdown yesterday, I've come to the conclusion that heterosexual men and lesbian contestants are at a distinct disadvantage trying to solve word puzzles and add up sums whilst Rachel Riley is stood there in outfits like this ! My wife came into the room while it was on and said do you actually know what you're watching ? I said "Is it some show where a lady shows you random letters" ? Needless to say I've been banned for watching Countdown for the rest of the week ! :(
Also the Countdown clock only counts down 30 seconds of a minute, so which way does the clock go back up to the top, does it finish the other 30 seconds or simply go back the way it came ? This has been keeping me awake for years !
