Mahatma is a title meaning "Great One." Saying Gandhi's first name is Mahatma is like saying Obama's first name is "President."

Even if they are flagged, I *hope* that they would examine the context before investigating every use of those words - think of how many movies are described as "bombs."

100% with 2:32 left. surprised so many knew Japanese comic book style, I pulled that answer out of some obscure part of my brain. Yet the weakest answer is the Mekong river which should be easy after it was a feature of the Vietnam War.

For once I got them all and no cheating. 3:47 left on the clock. Gandhi's name took most time and a second one I had to think about for a second was nearsightedness.

Yeah, not so sure the Maori count as "indigenous". The Maori have only been in New Zealand for less than 800 years (only ~200 before the Dutch arrived.) Maybe change it to "early settlers."

Yes, this is a debatable issue, though it is generally accepted Maori are indigenous.

Isn't Australia the biggest island in the Indian Ocean? I think so, I don't really consider it a continent, not ONLY Australia, all of Oceania is a continent, but I guess Australia is not.

A lot of people and books consider it a continent.

1. Australia is not "in" the Indian Ocean, the west coast is one of the borders 2. Australia is a continent (or very large island) located within the geographic area broadly known as Oceania

The first thing that came into my head for #1 was Moon. *sigh* No, I'm not five, just stupid.

you were not alone and (probably..) not stupid. Just have a photographic memory/ easily influenced. That picture up top subconsciously made me think moon (whether or not it really is the moon in that picture) so it was the first answer my mind eagerly threw at me. But I read well before I typed, so I could kerb the enthusiasm of my mind. Reason over impulse ;)
