I'm well aware that wiki is unreliable, but I don't immediately go into in-depth research every time it is quoted.

Assuming your last question was asking if I don't know what the world records are - no, I don't.

Wikipedia does of course have an article entitled Wikipedia Reliability ...... as with any decent article on there it is extensively referenced from external sources!

Of course if you find an error then you can always correct it so that others are better informed.
