The Taj Mahal is totally hotter than the Eiffel Tower

"Architectual beauty contests are the wave of the future!"

Or so Philon of Byzantium thought in the year 200BC.

Now, some 2,200 years later, a group of experts in architecture have picked up the idea again and are holding a competition to determine the New Seven Wonders of the World.

So, starting with a list of 77 Nominees from around the world, a group of experts narrowed it down to 21 finalists. And now, through the end of the year, people from around the world are invited vote by phone for the New Seven Wonders of the World, who will be announced on Jan 1st, 2007.

I'm sure that it is proof that there is something wrong with me that I find all of this more interesting than the Super Bowl.
