Da Vinci Code check list

A list of the flaws in the book/movie The Da Vinci Code can be found here. Should be worth a read after watching the film, or before if you don't mind some spoilers. Normally I'm not one for beating a movie over the head for simple continuity errors but in this case the claims of accuracy and the flaws are getting as much media attention as the plot itself.

It varies from the silly (The restrooms of the Louvre have liquid soap, just like most other public restrooms), to the technical ( GPS receivers are accurate to somewhere between 13 and 328 feet) and the historically important (The Priory of Sion is a fictitious organization, founded and publicized by Pierre Plantard in 1956)
