Post announcement post: The Seven New Wonders of the World

Results are in. With one vote cast for every 67 people on the planet, here are the winners, in no particular order:

  • Macchu Picchu (Peru)
  • Great Wall of China
  • Colosseum (Rome)
  • Taj Mahal (India)
  • Petra (Jordan)
  • Chichen Itza pyramid (Mexico)
  • Christ the Redeemer statue (Brazil)
  • Great Pyramids of Giza (Egypt)

When is seven eight? When the Great Pyramids are grandpharaoh-ed in. Egyptian officials indignantly asserted that as the sole remaining Wonder of the Ancient World, they shouldn’t have to apply.

So I’ve seen half. Now I know what to do with the rest of my life.

What say you?
