So, "coin coin" is the least guessed answer. Maybe it would be easier if poeple heard how we pronounce "oin" in French ;). Oh, and Cousteau's first name was Jacques-Yves, we use some compound first names in French, so in his case Yves is not a middle name.

I had to sound out the "coin coin" for the answer. Only way I could have gotten it right.

Alright, just to be really annoying and picky, but there is also a Westminster Cathedral so Westminster on its own shouldn't really be accepted as the answer.

OK I now checked in Wikipedia and it says "commonly known in English as Jacques Cousteau", so maybe it's actually correct for the purposes of this quiz, but it's really weird.

Personally I was happy to be among the minority able to answer Geographic questions like what's opposite China on the globe, where is Denpasar and name the Spanish island chain, and not too sad to be among the 14% who didn't know the answer to a question about a childrens' film.

You know, a question like that would probably be a good idea for a quiz.

Darn it! I just checked "antipodes" in the search box. Some other people beat me to it. Happens all the time.
