I got #6 and the Christmas one. (Final Jeopardy)

Forget physics. And the only reason I knew #6 was because I worked for Gaulin Manf. at one time. They make the homogenizing machines for milk and other products like lotions, face creams. etc.

All I could think of when I read that was "Gulf of Tonkin" or "Bay of Tonkin" (can't remember which), and Vietnam came to mind. Otherwise I wouldn't have gotten that one. I also toyed with China and Japan as answers, but Vietnam came to my poor little pea-brain first.

Tonkin is an area of Vietnam, not a country.
...Been called that for ever, almost.
