The New Seven Wonders of the World


Should be a new world wonder

The pyramids in Giza

To follow up on my previous post about the new Seven Wonders of the World, it looks like the vote has been cast.

The new seven were decided on 7/7/07 (I wonder why?) and have been released to the world. I can hardly believe it, but the pyramids in Egypt are no longer on the list. Maybe it is because of the way Egypt acted and refused to host the committee that was choosing the new wonders. Who knows. I can honestly┬ásay that after standing in Giza, I do believe they should still be on the list. And any list of world wonders that doesn’t include them is a publicity farce.

The good news is that some of the lame entries that in my opinion had no right to be known as wonders of the world did not make it. Some of these include the Statue of Liberty in New York and the Sydney Opera House. Sure, these are impressive structures, but they are just not wonders in my opinion.

A wonder makes you shush and just stare in disbelief.

To my disbelief, Angkor Wat in Cambodia did not make the new list either. But Christ the Redeemer did make the new Seven Wonders of the World — probably because a crapload of Brazilians voted and voted for the thing.

Come on people: it’s a statue.

Damn…now I have to start all over in visiting all seven places!

  1. Unbelievable!! Christ the Redeemer? Over the Pyramids and Angkor Wat?! You’re probably right about Egypt and the reason the Pyramids didn’t make the top 7, but I think alot of people just have no concept of how amazing Angkor Wat is… and many people don’t even know that it exists. Sad. Very sad.

  2. I haven’t seen Christ the Redeemer before, but i can’t possibly imagine it beat the Pyramids and Angor either! Who the hell voted for that thing?
