New list of 7 Wonders of the World!
Posted by darkstar 12 years ago
According to massive poll, top 7 human-built wonders listed here...  
• The Great Wall of China  
• Petra in Jordan  
• Brazil's statue of Christ the Redeemer  
• Peru's Machu Picchu  
• Mexico's Chichen Itza pyramid  
• The Colosseum in Rome  
• India's Taj Mahal  
Frankly, they are seriously misguided if they think the Egyptian pyramids on the Gizeh plain don't merit a Top-7 listing. I mean, Brazil's statue is great and all, but come on...more awesome than the Great Pyramid of Khufu?  
The organizers recognized this, at least, and so accorded the pyramids "honorary" wonder status, even though they didn't appear in the top seven on the poll...
FoolProof: Obviously flawed.
I can't believe...
crataegus: they left Beaglebot's peepus off this list.
darkstar: These are only man-made wonders.  
Hence, no enormous natural wonders like the Grand Canyon, the Great Barrier Reef or Beag's Peepus.
pdxpogo: This "new" list left out sites that were on the "original" Seven Wonders of the Anchient World.  
It is really just a list for travel agents and tourists.
darkstar: Technically, there's only one ancient wonder that still exists today: the Pyramids of Egypt.  
But I take your point about it being a list for travel agents. :)
shigpit: Tours of beagle's peepus are $10, same as in town.
