Chimborazo isn't well known, yet its peak claims the title of the point on the surface of the Earth most distant from its centre. The equatorial bulge means it's a greater distance than to the top of Everest.

You are right. It makes it quite an interesting mountain. It also means it is the point on earth closest to the Moon.

Depends on when in the cycle...diagrams mostly show the Moon revolving around Earth's equator, but it makes a significant difference even that far away. Besides, since the orbit is elliptical and not entirely round, astronomers don't calculate a singular distance.

Cotopaxi would be well known to schoolchildren of my generation from the poem "Romance" by WJ Turner, which has a refrain about Chimborazo, Cotopaxi. The final verse runs:- The houses, people, traffic seemed Thin fading dreams by day, Chimborazo, Cotopaxi They had stolen my soul away!

And there is no Victoria Island in Canada. Note to quiz-masters: Victoria is the capital of the province of British Colombia in Canada, and it is located on the tip of VANCOUVER ISLAND. By the way, Vancouver is the largest city in British Columbia. It, ironically, is not located on Vancouver Island, but on the mainland of BC

Unless you mean the tiny Victoria Island in the city of Ottawa, the capital of Canada. Or perhaps you mean the Victoria Island, one of many islands in the high Arctic of which many Canadians don't know the names because they're so remote and far removed,

Dracaena cinnabari (Socotra dragon tree) on the island of Socotra. Google some pictures of the island, they're really cool! It almost looks like another planet.
