Sup fellas,

this one is probably the only thing worth voting on for a hell of a long time,

fuck poliics only the polititions gonna win, fuck modern day religion - no ones gonna win...

go to www.new7wonders.com

all you gotta do is put in you email address, choose you seven (well 6 after putting in chichen itza :0) )

and they send you an email with a link back to their site, you confirm your age, country etc and job's done

The ones left in the running are as follows:

Acropolis

 Alhambra

 Angkor

 Chichen Itza

 Christ Redeemer

 Colosseum

 Easter Island Statues
 
Eiffel Tower

 Great Wall

 Hagia Sophia

 Kiyomizu Temple

 Kremlin / St. Basil

 Machu Picchu

Neuschwanstein Castle
 
Petra

 Statue of Liberty

 Stonehenge

 Sydney Opera House

 Taj Mahal

 Timbuktu
 
If you are unfamiliar with some of the sites there is a little information on each... its not about where your from, its about celebrating truely great feats achieved in the past


The New 7 Wonders of the World will be announced during the Official Declaration ceremony in Lisbon, Portugal on Saturday, July 7, 2007 - 07.07.07.

Quick question... why are the Pyramids not on there anymore? ,,, just not left in the running or did they not consider them since this is for a "modern" list?

nevermind... got my answer:

After careful consideration, the New7Wonders Foundation designates the Pyramids of Giza—the only remaining of the 7 Ancient Wonders of the World—as an Honorary New7Wonders Candidate.

Therefore, you cannot vote for the Pyramids of Giza as part of the New7Wonders campaign.

This decision has also taken into account the views of the Supreme Council of Antiquities of Egypt and the Egyptian Ministry of Culture. The Pyramids are a shared world culture and heritage site and deserve their special status as the only Honorary Candidate of the New7Wonders of the World campaign.

The 7 New Wonders of the World will now be chosen by the people across the globe from the 20 active New7Wonders candidates.

that still sucks though...
