    i thought australia was the largest island to. did it get re-classified? hate to be out of the loop on land mass classifications. would suck to bring something up in a conversation and have no one understand what im talking about(normal with the people im forced to talk to)and turn out to be wrong. they wouldnt but i would....

    Australia gets called the biggest lake and the smallest continent quite often.

    I dunno what it is right now.

    Incidentally ... what`s Pluto these days?

    Australia IS an Island.

    The total area of Greenland is 2,166,086 km squared. (836,109 sq mi)

    The total area of the ISLAND OF AUSTRALIA is 7,741,220 km squared. (2,988,888 sq mi)


    Australia has 1% water, whereas Greenland has 81.1% water.

    Australia is the 6th largest country (excluding claims on antarctica, but including outlying islands) and Greenland is the 13th (including all outlying provences).


    Therefore, AUSTRALIA WINS

    AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE :P

    So there`s an island in a lake. This lake is on an island. But that island is on a lake inside of another island.

    I GET IT!

    (somewhat)

    My brain isn`t forgiving me for clicking this link and attempting to put things into perspective.

    Since when is a sea a lake? If you call the Caspian Sea a lake then Australia should be the largest island. Lake Superior should be the largest "lake".

    There are standard definitions used to determine geographic features. For example, in the United States a mound has to be at least 1000 feet tall (about 300m) before it can be called a mountain. Otherwise it is a hill.

    I believe there`s a standard definition for islands as well. Not sure who the deciding/governing body was, but I`m pretty sure an island can`t contain more than 1% of the world`s total land surface. By that definition, Greenland is an island but Australia is a continent.

    lol.
    i thought the novelty of this was kind of interesting. i would have guessed there isnt an island in a lake on an island in a lake on an island. but there it is.

    `Kuru` Asia is a continent made up of lots of countries all joined up together. Australia is a country. It`s not really a continent because New Zealand and Australia make up the continent Australasia/Oceania. So really, it is an island.

    I had to see the picture to understand the caption (largest island in a lake, on an island in a lake on an island) It had me rather confuse for a few minutes. But still, the whole thing`s pretty neat:-)
