I got fooled by Mariana trench and Manila, shame on me! Same area though, I'll just count it as one mistake ;).

My mental map is crooked, the bits above australia are lower in my mind haha. Or actually, maybe including australia. That whole entire corner of the map.

I actually think it is becáuse people have heard (of) both terms, the words are nearly the same, so easy to mix up (especially if you have different words for them in your own language without any "artic" in it, it would be a case of which is which. (you have the one, and the other one)

Now if it was northpole southpole... those exact words I mean. that would be slightly worrying.

Btw some people can't tell flammable and inflammable apart ;)

Ha! One of my favorite insults in Shakespeare is, "Thou art as opposite to every good as the antipodes are unto us, or the south to the septentrion!" I think we need to bring back words such as antipodes or septentrion.

Can confirm that antipodes is still commonly used :) Especially in 3D geometry!

Use the search bar, and you'll find a bunch of antipode-themed quizzes here on Jetpunk. Unfortunately, none featured yet - so, pick your favorite(s) and nominate, nominate, nominate!

The equator goes through the middle of India. Technically, India is in both the northern and southern hemisphere.

But not India, sorry. The southernmost point, Indira Point in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, is at 6.8°N.

Silly me had my equator too far south in South America, and believed Peru was on the border, so guessed Machu Picchu as Northern. it was only when I submitted I remembered..."oh right, Ecuador is the equator"

Actually, if you look at a map, Tanzania is entirely south of the equator.
