The "New" Seven Wonders of the World

Recommended Posts

They put the Sydney Operah House up for voting but not any of Frank Gehry's recent buildings? A little odd to me. Gehry's structures much more reflect "Abstraction & Creativity" IMHO.

Some of these would make great stops on TAR -- The Alhambra, Neuschwanstein Castle, Angkor, Kiyomizu Temple, Easter Islands (detour: make a giant statue or find easter eggs)

I need a solid definition of a "wonder". No one has ever satisfactorilly provided one.


INT. HOLY TRINITY CHURCH - SANCTUARY - NIGHT

So now that you've told me all of this: why do you hold such a deep aversion to discussing angels?

PASTOR DAVID

Because I don't wanna get it WRONG! To stand up in front of my congregation--AND in front of God-- and screw it up! Do you hold much stock in that passage from James that says "We who teach will be judged more strictly"??

FATHER LORENZO

Yes... in fact .... I consider that one scripture to be an occupational hazard.
