    Bike stuff doesn’t count, I’m guessing?

    Perhaps the Scottish explosives industry, then. I wrote a book on it and everything 😉

    Used to be The Northern European Romantic Tradition in Art, but I’m probably a bit rusty on that these days.

    Guess now it would be Innovation and promoting Creativity in Teaching and Learning.

    7th century cosmology 😯
    That is exactly what I’m talking about!
    However, I’m sure willing listeners are thin on the ground…

    Yes, but the unwilling listeners are always a laugh. Someone once asked me what I was writing about. I said ‘you don’t want to know’. He said ‘yes I do. Go on tell me.’ Then the flood gates opened.

    He never came near me again, and I see him fairly frequently. 😀

    Mc moonter: wood, collection, and building with
    Deadly darcey: floors

    I was thinking earlier, I know a bit about a lot of stuff but I’d like to have a specialist subject, I suppose mine is the building industry but that’s rather dull! I’d love to say to folk I’m a specialist in nuclear fragmentation of snail shells or such the like ….

    My job title is medical researcher – but that doesnt really reflect what I do

    But id say my specialist subject was knitting (I also do freelance work as a mathematical knitting pattern checker)

    Basically im a bit of a geek – and proud of it 🙂

    Recently, the legalities of image sharing on social media networks.

    Financial modelling of commercial property transactions and developments. Specialist enough to do make a living of it as a freelance for the last 7 years or so. But it’s not thrilling at dinner parties.

    Increasingly my specialist subject has become the net energy content of renewable and non-renewable fuels in the domestic heating environment. Im still not very interesting at parties.

    Whatever it is, it isnt concrete though, wrighty!

    Design and optimisation of Microwave networks. I design and write expert systems to automate it.

    Previously a bit more varied, I hold patents on Turbo Codes, Poweline systems, Coding (modems rather than SW), and a load of other stuff I’ve forgotten about.

    😳 Just landed and on the Heathrow Express right now as it happens. Those post it notes don’t sell themselves, you know! 😉

    Oi wrighty! Hardwood floors! 🙂

    But I’m not that sure it’d get me onto Mastermind so I’ll go with the American Civil War. I’d have to do a bit of revising but I used to know it inside out.

    Similar to Rachel/allthegear, but Java based.

    Would rather be an expert in 7C cosmology tbh.

    Quite good on Pop Master as well. Nothing useful really.

    Sadly, outside of work I don’t really have any specialist knowledge. I can’t be arsed for the most part.

    Can general knowledge be a specialist subject? If so, that’s mine. the amount of stuff that I know that I don’t know I know until I’m asked is amazing…

    bencooper the book sounds interesting.

    What am I a specialist in?
    Nothing springs to mind, I have a fair bit of work related knowledge in both my day job and my hobby job, the tyre industry and fireworks, but neither are that useful outside of the work environment.

    Used to be hay meadow and chalk grassland restoration. Now nothing in particular.

    Easy 😉

    From a Mastermind perspective The Simpsons. Obviously nothing to do with my job.
