Post announcement post: The Seven New Wonders of the World

July 8, 2007

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.
