Re: Satire



Satire, my nomination for one of the Wonders of the World, isn't so modern at all since both Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome had their satirists. Colossuses can fall into the sea, Hanging Gardens can die of root rot, and Great Pyramids can—okay, well, yeah. The Great Pyramids are still there. Nevertheless, the point is that the pen can be mightier than the sword, and this has been true from ancient times all the way to today—whether it's an essay modestly proposing eating poor children or a giant gas bag protesting another giant gas bag's institutional consumption of more poor children. In a world where The Onion is more and more frequently mistaken for reality—and vice versa, I think Mark Twain would have felt right at home. And he's right: Truth is stranger than fiction." Therefore, I propose SATIRE for one of the New Wonders of the World. So let us celebrate Truth, Fiction, and Satire—while they are all still legal.

Re: Wonder Itself



It may seem obvious, but Wonder itself should be considered a Wonder of the World. Without a sense of wonder, we as a species would probably never left our tree branches or caves and made our way to the suburbs. Without Wonder, we wouldn't have fire or agriculture or art or snack chips or the ability to binge-watch Netflix.

As M. C. Escher said, "He who wonders discovers that this in itself is wonder." And he continued to say it until he was eaten by a large snake.

Although, now that I actually see that written down, maybe I just dreamed that last part at four in the morning, as I lay on the couch binge-watching Netflix, a wet mash of Doritoes crumbs in my beard. And I don't even have a beard.

Ewwww.

Re: Playing with Pyramids



Cats were pretty revered in Ancient Egypt. Maybe they really built the pyramids for them to play with?

Re: The Desire to Understand



Neil Armstrong said that "Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of man’s desire to understand." Neil Armstrong said that. Neil Armstrong.

He walked on the moon. The moon.

We don't walk on the moon anymore. High school students can't even find the moon on a map. Some of them mistake Minnesota for the moon. Others deny that anyone ever walked on the moon. My neighbor doesn't even walk to her mailbox. She drives the five car lengths to the end of her driveway to check the mail.

So in these approaching dark ages, I propose adding The Desire To Understand to the New Wonders of the World with the hope that some people out there will keep wonder alive and continue the desire to understand.

Re: The Pull Tab



If you aren't of a certain age, you may not remember pull-tabs. And if you are really young, you may not even remember the controversy they engendered not too long ago. Along with the much-ballyhooed Y2K bug, their appearance on a UNESCO list was the story of the new millennium. In the late 1990s, when the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) announced plans to publish of the second millennium's most significant Cultural Artifacts—the so-called 100,000 Wonders of the World—aficionados of the beverage can Pull-Tab ("Tabbies," as they affectionately refer to one another) were hoping that their favorite invention would finally garner the respect that this significant innovation so clearly deserved. Most Tabbies, you see, remember the dark days when one had to bring some kind of can opener with them in order to enjoy canned beverages—and, likewise, most Tabbies can relate horror stories of being caught on an outing or picnic without one. So when Ermal Fraze invented the pull-tab in 1959, like Prometheus, he bestowed upon a thankful humanity a gift that many likened to the discovery of fire—or at least the invention of manufactured firelogs like Duraflame. And, as such, most Tabbies believed the importance of Fraze's invention would land it in that coveted Top 100 spot on UNESCO's list. Much to their horror, however, the Pull-Tab ended up coming in at number 87,151—just beating out Sony's Betamax but losing to Ronco's Mr. Microphone. There were, of course, complaints and protests and four or five hundred lawsuits from different organizations and lobbying groups outraged that their products hadn't received adequate consideration and a commensurate ranking on the list. So, as a result, the release of the Official UNESCO Second Millennium List has been held up by various courts in different countries for the past twenty years. It is hoped that the different lawsuits will all be settled and the rankings finally made official before the start of the next millennium. We'll keep you posted.
