I thought a Corsair was a pirate ship not the actual pirate.. hm.. only one I missed aside from Cameron Mannheim Steamroller.

Technically wouldn't Japan or Indonesia be a better answer for the Hong Kong question? If you started digging straight down, assuming you didn't just die from some poisonous gas or cave-in and end up nowhere, and you actually reached the mantle.. then you and whatever digging equipment you were using would liquify and mix with molten rock. After that your molecules would drift along under the crust, and if you were to reemerge at all it would be somewhere with high levels of volcanic activity like Japan which isn't too far from Hong Kong. I doubt you'd make it all the way to Argentina.

To everyone who right now can feel their panties wadding up even as they read this... it's a joke. relax.

It would be helpful to clarify the "Lost Boys" question...since the film "Lost Boys" exists, it's not clear which of the two potential groups who are called "lost boys" is the intended subject. Had the film not been made it would clearly refer to "Peter Pan". I, like others commenting here, quickly imagined the 1987 film that has somewhat of a cult following.

The type of music question is misleading. I tried all the ones I could think of, punk, rock, ska etc. Xmas would be more of a subject, because xmas music itself can be in any style, from classical to rock.
