And what list of "wonders" are these "scientists" going by? Some long lost revised copy of Herodotus' list, one that included natural features perhaps? Should keeping inventory of these "wonders" be entrusted to someone else, so that they won't be misplaced again? :)

Inquiring minds want to know.

The list was originally compiled by singer named Stevie and some Woman. He keeps it in a plastic bag. Here is a link to pics:

How do you misplace a pyramid?

Three articles that answer your questions, yet you insist on being snarky and dismissing the whole thing. Perhaps actually read the articles before you make fun of them?

Hey Naz,

Exactly. They must have had a slow news day. And even what they did scrounge up wasn't so dramatic, so they came up with all kinds of sensational headlines.

You should have seen the titles when the story first "broke". You would have thought they had discovered Atlantis!

PS. This was crossposted to humor, by the way.

Sorry, I only see it under News of the Weird.

The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. Somehow I think commissioning the U.N. to power wash 15 meters of ash away resulting in a significant ecological disaster would compromise it's qualification as a "Natural Wonder." I would pencil this one permanently off the list at least until the next "Great Flood" exposes it again.

My long dead mother once told me…"never get between one jealous land mass and another…"

Well it is looking like this one just might have been buried for a while be ash from a volcano.
