Anyone hear that they are going to make new 7 wonders of the world? I heard it today in school. You can vote for the new ones, sounds pretty crazy.
#2
Yeah, seems pretty fucking ridiculous to me. The wonders are "wonders" because they either seem improbable for their time or are of unknown origins or somehow of wonderous design. Things like the Effiel tower aren't "wonders;" they may be impressive, but we know exactly how they were designed and built. Same goes for any other modern man-made structure on the list. It's silly.

There was a thread on this ages ago, I remember a beif discussion about it. The Eiffel Tower and Statue of Liberty were options, I believe.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.

ya, Egypt got pretty pissed off because they think there might be a chance the pyramids might not win. Which I think is silly the pryamids are the only standing member of the old seven wonders.

You'd figure they'd get grandfathered in.

That really seems like a crock of ass.

Nah, I think the original 7 Wonders of the World was something like the Pyramids & Sphinx at Giza, the Colossus of Rhodes, Mausoleum of Halicarnassuss, Statue of Zeus at Olympia, the lighthouse at Alexandria, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon and... One more I can't remember. (Was the Greeks who made the first list, so naturally they chose all their stuff with a few extras to fill the gaps)

Good question - Maybe it's a case of wanting to draft a newer list because as it's been said, of the 7 in the old list, only the Pyramids and the Sphinx are still standing, & even those aren't exactly in mint condition any more. Closest thing we could have to a modern Wonder?...Err... I dunno, the big ol' Cathedral in Barcelona that's still not complete?

they announced some in 2000:


Number Wonder Location
1 Potala Palace Lhasa, Tibet, China
2 Old City of Jerusalem Israel
3 Polar ice caps Polar regions
4 Northwestern Hawaiian Islands National Monument Hawaii, United States
5 Internet N/A
6 Mayan ruins Yucatán Peninsula, Mesoamerica
7 Great Migration of Serengeti and Masai Mara Kenya and Tanzania
8 Grand Canyon (viewer-chosen "eighth wonder") Arizona, United States

oh and the wall of China is seen as a wonder of the middles age

...Am I the only one who finds that lot confusing? E.g. with the Great Wall - Especially considering I do believe it was built before even the fall of Rome, never mind the time of the middle ages. Correct me if I'm wrong on this.
In fairness, they shouldn't try & mix natural and man-made wonders - Fine, things like the Canyon & the ice caps do count, just... Have separate lists, as you can't exactly compare, say old Jerusalem with the Internet in terms of rankings, can you?
