1. How do you know it's the penultimate list?
I have a feeling you are very, very wrong on that.

Either overly optimistic, or a wrong understanding of the word.

10. lol
I actually meant to type "one away from".
But, I guess "one away from next to last" would include the last... :)

11. well,
one away from "next to last" could either be last or antepenultimate. And one away from that would be either penultimate or pre-antepenultimate. North of the equator, it's pre-antepenultimate.
