The New? 7 Wonders results are out!

Yup, the votes have been counted and the results are in! And before you get all antsy, The Taj Mahal is in the 7 wonders so with a sigh of relief politicians can now device new scams to siphon off money in the name of saving/protecting/beautifying the Taj etc.

Here's the list of those that made it vis-a-vis those that I voted for.

My Votes
1. The Taj Mahal
2. The Eiffel Tower
3. Chichen Itza
4. Easter Island Statues
5. Machu Picchu
6. Pyramids of Giza
7. Stonehenge.

The Winners
1.Chichen Itza
2.Christ Redeemer
3.The Great Wall
4.Macchu Picchu
6.The Roman Colloseum
7.The Taj Mahal

What amazes me however was the sudden flurry of activities in India around this voting. Quick question, HOW do we know all those SMSes sent were actually reflected in the votes for the Taj? I don't see the SMS numbers and/or codes listed anywhere on the "official website" just promos floating about on billboards and TVs.

Frankly, it smells like a big scam to me but we'll never know now.
