Discover claims that [[Toronto/Yonge Street|Yonge Street]] is the world's longest street; however, this anonymous user [http://wikitravel.org/en/Talk:Toronto/Yonge_Street] and Wikipedia [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yonge_Street#Yonge_Street_as_the_.22Longest_Street_in_the_World.22] claim differently. How do we remove this fun-fact and publish the one in line? --[[User:Globe-trotter|globe-trotter]] 20:24, 6 September 2011 (EDT)

== Mt Aso hyperbole ==
 
 
Looks like we have another dubious claim. Current DYK states that Mt. Aso is the largest caldera in the world. 
 
 
However, the class of super-calderas listed at http://geology.about.com/library/bl/blbigcalderas.htm easily eclipses Aso.
 
 
Note that Wikipedia also claims Aso as "one of the biggest", but cites dimensions, not that claim or a table of comparisons.
 
 
I think what people mean to say is that it may be the world's largest *active* caldera. Even then, I think Yellowstone may be bigger.
