It's a way of translating the globe to a flat map which makes areas of land nearer the poles look far larger than they really are.

No, I don't think so.

This lot held the record in the late 70's, and I don't think anyone's beaten it, yet.

There was six of the same family in the group, at one point, (3 brothers and 3 sisters) as well, as a couple of people who weren't related.
