K..Swampers, since some of you don't visit AHTO, here's a cut-n-paste :devsmoke:

Pretty interesting little read, and a nice list of candidates (21). It does require e-mail or phone registration in order to vote, but if you want to be a little piece of 'history' (whether it's officially acknowledged or not we'll see ;) )....

I voted for mine :D

I voted for the Eiffle Tower, The Pyramids of giza, Easter Island, Statue of Christ Redeemer, Statue of Liberty, Great Wall, and Sydney Opera House.

Some of those things are modern marvles, some are just cool, and some are my christmas ornements(Eiffle tower. Love you, target!)

I would've voted for the Anasazi Cliff Palace. That's certainly a wonder.

I'm not voting for none, the universe is the best undiscovered wonder out there. :)
But if I was going vote, I would choose the Pyramids of Giza; the wonders of ancient civilizations are of great interest here on this planet. :)

Since I'm so lazy, I'm just going to copy and paste my reply in Ahto. :xp:

A few things were excluded, but there was a pretty good selection. I ended up voting for the Colosseum, Eiffel Tower, Hagia Sophia, Kremlin, Petra and Taj Mahal. Thanks for the link, ChAiNz! :)

Acropolis
Easter Island
Great Wall
Petra
Pyramids of Giza
Hagia Sophia
Stonehenge

I ranked them by size, age, complexity, mystery, history, and intactness.

Had I been given the choice, instead of Hagia Sophia and Stonehenge, I would've voted for the Pantheon and the Nazca lines.
