Stupid mistakes which I made:

3, Distance between the graves of Arthur Rimbaud and Edgar Allan Poe
Correct answer: 6250 kms (Charleville, FRA and Baltimore, USA), surprisingly bad tips

740 - Duplode
509 - Usrin
440 - Akoss Poo
50 - Zak McKracken
0.5 - Chulk

I admit that I thought Edgar Allan Poe was English...

12, Ranking of the Moon on the list of heaviest objects in the solar system
Correct answer: 14th, see the TOP20 below (expressed in 10^21 kg units)

73.5 - Moon
48 - Europa (satellite of Jupiter)

As an amateur astronomer, it's a real shame for me... but I didn't know that there's such a large difference between the four big moons of Jupiter, and Europa is so small. In a small telescope, all four are dots with almost the same brigthness.

I'll ask questions before answering this time. I'm not making the piggy bank mistake again...
10.   Height difference between the tallest and smallest United States resident film actors ever lived, in centimeters.
Resident means 'lived/living there' or 'Nationality'?

+1   Fastest speed achieved by a human powered bicycle on flat surface, unpaced, in km/h.
What does 'unpaced' refer to? Or 'paced' if it's easier to explain/understand

nationality, sorry for being confusing.

Paced means there is a motorized vehicle going in front of the cyclist, reducing the impact of headwind / air resistance. Unpaced means there is no such help, just the bicycle and its rider on a flat surface.

Good thing I asked! I was considering the other option primarily.
Paced means there is a motorized vehicle going in front of the cyclist, reducing the impact of headwind / air resistance. Unpaced means there is no such help, just the bicycle and its rider on a flat surface.
I thought this was it, but better be sure
