    Seven Wonders of the World

    As many might already know, we are voting for the NEW seven wonders of the world. I think the idea is very good , considering many of the old wonders are not here anymore, like the beautiful hanging gardens of Babylon and so on. What do you think of this? Do you agree we should vote for new ones? Why or why not? Which would you choose?

    Re: Seven Wonders of the World

    I don't think we really need to have a "new" seven wonders of the World....it's not a mystery for how stuff is made anymore, and it's not that great of a scientific challenge. People just make a building plan, and in about a year it's built....

    With the other seven wonders of the world, they actually hold some mystery because we are still trying to fully figure out how they were built, and these people didn't have the same technology and knowledge as us....so what they built were absolute masterpieces of creativity...

    here's a list of the different wonders:

    The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World
    The Great Pyramid of Giza
    The Hanging Gardens of Babylon
    The Temple of Artemis at Ephesus
    The Statue of Zeus at Olympia
    The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus
    The Colossus of Rhodes
    The Pharos of Alexandria

    The Seven Wonders of the Medieval Mind
    Stonehenge
    The Colosseum
    The Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa
    The Great Wall of China
    The Porcelain Tower of Nanjing
    The Hagia Sophia
    The Leaning Tower of Pisa

    And then they have the list of the 'modern world wonders', which is a joke:

    The Seven Wonders of the Modern World
    The Empire State Building
    The Itaipú Dam
    The CN Tower
    The Panama Canal
    The Channel Tunnel
    The North Sea Protection Works
    The Golden Gate Bridge

    I mean...what a joke...How much of a world wonder are the ones on the modern list? Not much....access to resources is far easier, the technology is better, and they didn't take years upon years to complete. Sorry, but those aren't 'wonders'. How impressive is a wonder when it's subcontracted out for millions of dollars, and built by a construction company? It might look nice, but it's not a wonder....

    A wonder should actually make you think "I wonder how they made that!"

    Many Thanks To SasuraiHell For The Sig!

    To smell
    To feel
    To love

    What the bloody shit are you saying!? Even IF that was illegible to be selected most of them would actually be one: the 5 senses.

    But anyway. It's ridiculous.

    And why is it that we are voting for new "seven wonders of the world"? What's wrong with the old ones?
