Pedantic I know, but Kelvin didn't measure absolute zero. He calculated it.

It seems he was Irish by his father's birthright, Irish by his own birthplace, and knighted by the English Queen Victoria which seems to be the only English connection. So it depends on how you read the question. His knighthood was English, hence he was an English Lord.

Ad Erikthev: this is nitpicking, but not his knighthood, but peerage. Otherwise, I completely agree.

He was Irish, so he would have an honoury knighthood. This means he couldn't be called Sir Kelvin. The same applies to Bob Geldof, although he is erroneously called Sir Bob. I couldn't really care less about this, as knighthoods are given to anyone famous today without any real merit.

@erikthev: Queen Victoria was queen of the United Kingdom, not of England (there is no official title Queen/King of England since the union in 1707).

Nobody has ever "measured" absolute zero. It can't be done. The attempt to measure it raises the temperature.

"knight" is actually the 11th most guessed answer, meaning it's not among the easiest or most difficult questions but right in the middle.

The Ayatollah Khomeni didn't overthrow the Shah. He was in France while everyone else was overthrowing him. He went back to Iran after the dust had started to settle. Credit where credit's due.

Nice quiz. But please accept Khmer on its own - the word 'empire' is in the question so I never thought to type it. Thanks.
