Inspired by (well, plagiarised from) the TV programme QI, I am going to set a number of quite interesting, nay, all-but-impossible, questions. The first person to post an answer that meets with my approval will earn my grudging respect, and maybe some kel.
So, here's the first one:
In 1964, the Beatles were in their New York hotel room when they were first offered marijuana, by Bob Dylan no less. Under the influence of the drug , Paul McCartney declared that he had discovered the secret of existence and scribbled something down on a scrap of paper. What did he find he had written when he woke the following morning?

(Please note: If you participated in the competitions at the QI website or saw the answers there, please be sporting and let others have a go.)

We know that, Ocelot, but try and stay on topic.

El Jaber, I'd enter but you showed me the website. Worried
So you may want to think of your own questions, otherwise I don't think there'll be too many people interested in entering.

What do you take me for?
Some kind of person who can be bothered to make up his own questions?

Was it to do with any of The Beatles songs?

Could it be "We all live in a yellow submarine"? Razz

No.
You could spend two minutes on Google and find out.
