    Well, it was interesting to see the answers. I was actually expecting a mix of natural wonders, like the Grand Canyon, along with man-made ones, but I guess the 'modern' part made everyone think of man-made.

    So the answers given:


    Eiffel Tower 3
    Empire State Building 3
    Panama Canal 3

    Computer 2
    English Channel Tunnel 2
    Golden Gate Bridge 2
    Great Wall of China 2

    And single point answer: Aircraft, Automobile, Brooklyn Bridge, Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa, Cell Phone, Cloning, CN Tower, Coloseeum, Hoover Dam, Internet, Mt. Rushmore, Organ Transplants, Porcelain Tower of Nanjing, Space Travel, St. Louis Arch, Stonehenge, Suez Canal, Twinkies

    Scores this round:

    Ransac: 12 (5)
    train: 11 (3)
    BigBlue: 10 (2)
    Mooseman: 10 (2)
    DF: 6
    Lythand: 6
    Limited: 6

    Overall Scores:

    Ransac: 5
    train: 3
    BigBlue: 2
    Mooseman: 2

    All right, re-edited for DF :) That slacker.

    It just bumped up Limited score for the round by 1, but the points given overall didn't change.
  5. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    Wow, I got one point.

    Tough first question; I had no clue what to put (but the Eiffel Tower? Seriously?)
  6. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    You didn't get a point. BigBlue and Mooseman shared the 2 point AND took the 1 point slot away by sharing...

  13. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    Well, the Eiffel Tower is an icon for sure.. but I'm just not really impressed by it. Suppose its a big deal though.
  14. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    There is a list of "The Seven Wonders of the Modern World" that I tried to recall. I could only remember for of them, so put Eiffel Tower on there as well. It's not technically on the list, but I figured people would answer it.
