After missing a shot at a Golden Plover, he became involved in an argument over which was the fastest game bird in Europe, the golden plover or the red grouse. That evening, he realised it was impossible to verify from reference books whether or not the golden plover was the fastest. He also realised there must be many similar questions debated nightly in pubs all over, but there was nowhere to verify the absolute answer from.
