I'm just a guy at a house

It's a long story. :)

I had no idea we were even voting on the New 7 Wonders of the World. Man, I woulda voted!!!

According to CNN:

The new seven wonders of the world were named Saturday following an online vote that generated server-crushing traffic in its final hours.

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.

What is awesome to me is that we are making strides toward global opinion polling. I think that is so cool. While this kind of online vote obviously leaves out tons of people from the polling, I'd like to think that it takes a fair sample at least of those people who are familiar with world events. I think one day, it will be a normal occurrence to be able to go online every day and take part in things like this. Thank you, organizers dudes.
