Seven Wonders based on what?

When it comes to voting results, some people are always satisfied and others disappointed. A voting tally has never won total support from everyone.



The voting on the New Seven Wonders of the World fits this description perfectly. As soon as the list of the new wonders was announced on Sunday, people started voicing their comments on the Internet. And as expected, Thais expressed their dissatisfaction for the failure to list Angkor Wat, the ancient Hindu temple built in honour of Vishnu.

Indeed, if we thought the voting was a simple vote by 100 million Net users, we wouldn't have been so disturbed by the result.

But there are so many rankings in the world! One site might make one list but fail to snatch a spot on another. Click www.wonderclub.com/AllWorldWonders.html, and you will learn just how many world wonders are out there.

If we are so obsessed with the voting results revealed on Sunday, we'll suffer more emotional fluctuations whenever a new poll comes up more with dissatisfactory news. Right now www.new7wonders.com/ is asking for nominations for sites. I guess Thais need to join the Web, or lose out and stay unhappy.

I'm toying with the idea of listing Thailand's Seven Wonders. I'll certainly be flooded with proposals. Still, it is difficult to please everybody. (Will anybody vote for the Democracy Monument for its outstanding location?)

Don't forget, Thailand is going to have an important poll itself - this time a vote for politicians to run the country. Will Thais fight over these results too?
