Since I'm watching QI in New Zealand - and we only get old episodes here, endlessly repeated - this topic may already have been addressed, but....

The Mariana Trench was described as "being off the coast of California."

This could be considered accurate only if you also consider Japan to be "off the coast of California." In fact, the Trench is almost as far away from Los Angeles as is Tokyo.

Not surprising, since the Trench is actually off the coasts of Japan and Guam.
