It doesn't have a hook on top, but the curved shape of Australia's Sydney Harbour Bridge
does somewhat resemble a coat hanger. The bridge, which was completed in 1932, cost
$20 million and 16 lives.

Typos or not. I love the trivia. Don't ever stop.

None of us are blue ribbon champions on the keyboard. I have a terrible time with capital T's. In fact I have a problem with capital letters of the left side. My right little finger is bent and is difficult to shift. I actually shift the enter and shift key with my knuckle. More often than not I miss. I have been a member for a year now and that is the very first error I have ever seen in trivia. If I didn't come from Mass, I probably wouldn't have noticed it. You are doing a great job and giving us some fun. Thank you.
