What would you say are the Seven Wonders of the modern world?

I think we can all agree on pic related.

Motherland Calls has a FUCKING SWORD bigger than entire Lady Liberty and most of you fucks don't even know it exist

Hell the Genghis on horse in Ulaanbaatar is cooler than Lady Liberty.

not exactly what you have in mind, but there is a revised list out there

Gaza Pyramids
Great Wall of China
Ruins of Petra
the Roman Colosseum
Chichen Itza
Pachu Picchu
the Taj Mahal
Christ the Redeemer

those both look like shit, and the lady is in constant danger of falling apart because it's all heavy shitcrete

Exactly. The Statue of Liberty is far more iconic (not to mention a century older).

>the Louvre isn't a world wonder

Nigger aside from the fact that it's the largest palace in the world, it houses the greatest collection ever assembled by humans of artistic masterpieces and other artifacts from every civilisation in the world and over thousands of years of history. Nothing remotely like this ever existed before.

It's not technically on the world though.

Why does it have to be? Cant it just be the seven wonders of man
>>
100% agree

I'd argue the Panama canal over the Suez. Also maybe lose the Eiffel Tower for The Three Gorges Dam or Christ the Redeemer. I'm trying to stick to fairly modern too. If you want to go back further you're gonna have to include The Colleseum and the Taj Mahal.

That's nothing new, it just happens to be the tallest building at the moment, but won't be for long.

Petra shouldn't be there. It was completed in ancient times. This really gets me.

All of those are ancient except the shitty Jesus statue.

1. International Space Station
2. Panama Canal
3. Three Gorges Dam
4. Christ the Redeemer
5. Louvre
6. Palm Island
7. Cerns LHC

There we go, seven wonders of the modern world

What exactly is wondrous about the christ statue

>>3092099
nigga none of those are modern except for Christ the Redeemer

It is pretty beautiful, and I'm not Christian so don't accuse me of bias.

Literally the same line of thinking of the eurangutan louvre.
>>
>>3097910
The fuck is this sentence trying to convey
>>
>>3090185
Petra shouldn't be there because there are hundreds of temples in India built in the exact same way, carved from large monoliths, except grander and sometimes older.
>>
>>3094243
I worry this is a slippery slope to including abstract concepts over actual physical structures, which goes against the spirit of the list. Just put the LHC on there, the Internet is a CERN spinoff anyway.
>>
>>3090159

Panama canal.
Burj Khalifa
International space station
Three gorges dam
LHC
Eurotunnel
Internet

>>3090185
Its revised to such an extent it includes 8 entries despite being called "The seven wonders"

They still should give those masterpieces back. Napoleon raped the Benelux and othe territories when they invaded it by stealing art and selling building materials of demolished churches and never gave them back.

Replace the Canal of Suez by the Canal du Midi and we are good.
