I see what you did there! Most dogs don't work very hard! :lol:
It is a myth that Brian went over the falls in a barrel,
But he did swim up them,

They might be the widest but not the biggest. The Rhein Falls are 23 metres high compared with 2 metres for the Venta Rapid!

Haha! You quote the widest and tallest but not the biggest!

Rhine Fall facts
Height of the falls – 23 metres
Width – 150 metres
Age – estimated at least 15,000 years
Average water flow – in the summer c 600,000 litres a second! (13,066 cfs)
I don’t know about you but I find that water flow figure to be astounding.
It would seem that based on that water flow the Schaffhausen Rheinefall has been labelled as the largest waterfall in Europe.
No such thing as a biggest water fall

Widest = Ventas Rumba

Tallest = Mongefoseen

Powerful = Rhine Fall, the second powerful waterfall is Dettifoss in Iceland

There are two depending how you look at it.

hi Alan; hope all is well with you. There is usually more than one opinion on most things. Many use Google search and assume the answer is correct but its only a search engine and it depends on the source of the detail! :D
