Deadline is 27th June 2014.

!!!

Only 4 participants so far: Akoss Poo, Bonzai Joe, Duplode, Zak McKracken.

To clarify question 6: I mean only THIS World Cup, not all time (two of you - Duplode and Poo - understood it as "European goals ever in knock-out phase", so you can still correct that one).
74,34 km

Perhaps not... I think the results will not be published before the end of the World Cup.

Szerintem meg csak tegnap este óta ismert az utolsó helyes válasz, tehát még egy napnál sem járunk "késés" tekintetében. Amúgy meg péntekig nem leszek a saját gépem elött... :P

Results on Friday, I'm away.

13 másik válasz esetében viszont már több, mint két hét.

Argh. So close for once.

Glad I got the order of magnitude right on the water question. That was a difficult calculation to do in my head, especially as I didn't remember the formula for the volume of a sphere and couldn't completely figure it out. Good job there Usrin. But of course, that one was right up your street...
But we can't be quite sure.
