[Golden Thread] What would be your Mastermind specialist subject?

This is a Golden Thread. Join in with the discussion before 21st August to be in with a chance of winning a £50 Amazon voucher!


If you found yourself in the hot seat competing for that cut glass bowl and the title of Mastermind what would be your specialist subject?

Past winners of the show have been experts on topics ranging from early 20th century steam trains to Doctor Who, from the London Borough of Wandsworth to Olympic fencing, so the more obscure your answers the better :biggrin:

No that was 1979 when they won a trophy! I picked 1975 as Graham Gooch became a regular player :smile:

That's so cool! It's great to have a real passion, I'm always a bit jealous of people who have things they're so dedicated to.

I should have made up an additional rule that we require one fun fact for every contribution!

My two great loves.

Well, music as well but I couldn't narrow that down enough.

Chemistry

Or

Fashion and beauty

Travelling
Inorganic chemistry

I’d be very hesitant to say chemistry as a whole in the event they chuck some stuff regarding the names of organic chemists at me.

As for a fact as @Pwca has mentioned the possibility of making a rule where we have to state one, the vast majority of enzymes are classified as metalloproteins, since they have metal ions in them the act as catalytic sites. As such, enzymes are an area of interest to inorganic chemists which sounds almost paradoxical.

Well here's one for you - Leo Fender, one of the most influential guitar designers (he designed the stratocaster) never learnt how to play the guitar!
