In general wikipedia is a good source of information, but I remember a case here in Germany where someone messed up an article about a person and one newspaper took this information before it was fixed. All the other newspapers then copied the information laugh.gif

I was taught in school that Europe is part of Eurasia (or how it`s on english ohmy.gif ) and i think is more correct, because Europe isn`t sailing in the middle of the ocean separately biggrin.gif
Well but recording to wiki a continent is one of a several landmasses on Earth. And in wiki it`s correct, Australia is the smallest.

Eurasia is technically a supercontinent, North America and South America are also conjoined and collectively they are the Americas which is another supercontinent. The current continents are determined more by history than by scientific method smile.gif

All encyclopedias have mistakes, paper ones too!, plus they get updated soon... At least wiki-encyclopedias actually correct themselves over time. So many people read them that it's hard for mistakes or false info to survive in them. Of course some mistakes can be found, as with everything else! (TV news, newspapers, books, magazines... perfection just does not exist).

Anyways, you can always trust our wonderful Guitar Wiki! cool.gif cool.gif

There might be some joke in this that I don't get, but Iceland is not US territory. Yes they're in NATO but that doesn't make Iceland US territory.


But I agree, it's weird how they placed Iceland there.
