New Seven Wonders of the World Named

The final tally produced this list of the world's top human-built wonders:

• The Great Wall of China

• Petra in Jordan

• Brazil's statue of Christ the Redeemer

• Peru's Machu Picchu

• Mexico's Chichen Itza pyramid

• The Colosseum in Rome

• India's Taj Mahal

Before the vote ended Friday, organizers said more than 90 million votes had been cast for 21 sites.

Voting at the Web site, www.new7wonders.com, ended at 6 p.m. ET Friday. Traffic was so heavy Friday that the site was crashing at times.

I had 'Current' on for a while Sunday and they were discussing it. They said a person could vote as many times as they wanted, and some voted non-stop.

I'll stick with the old seven wonders...although I must admit, I wonder about a LOT more things now than I did 40 years ago.

Heck, I think the VOTING PROCESS itself should be a WONDER. What a hoot!

Let's just hope the Republicans don't try to incorporate this method of voting in 2008! :P :violent1:

Isn't that what Diebold is all about?
