Who is the Name ISKCON Associated With?

Got an email from my daughter today. She was watching the syndicated show "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" during her lunch hour. The contestant had already correctly answered the $32,000 question and was going for $64,000. At that level, the questions are really hard, and not too many people get them right, or even get to that level to have the chance to answer. The show is a multiple choice format, each question having 4 possible answers. The contestant can choose to not answer the question and walk away with the money they have already won.

The $64,000 question today was, "Who is the name ISKCON associated with?". The 4 choices were: Seventh Day Adventists, Jehovah Witnesses, Scientologists, and (hold your breath) Hare Krishna.

The guy without hesitation answered "Hare Krishna". When the host asked him how he knew, he said he had some Indian friends and they talked about an ISKCON place in West Virginia.
