I too like Meteor Crator, Grand Canyon and Chaco Canyon, the singularly most haunted place I've ever been to.

damn bea. I thought that was from a meteor strike. That blows up my entire agnostic theory of existence. WWGD Life is a garden. Dig it.

Meteor Crater is cooler than the hand dug well, because it was hand dug by GOD!

The worlds largest hand dug well? Word. There is friggin nothing there. Maybe I'm just pissed because I threw a penny in for luck and missed the water. Cause there ain't no water in it!.......I put that well on a list. Not the bucket list either. Even though it was dug by Frenchmen.

Sketchy

A badge of honor and something to strive for. You can't get there if you just like to watch.

How America-centric! When asked what is the coolest landmark in the world, 3 of 4 respondents name landmarks in the U.S.!

I would say the Great Pyramid at Giza, or Great Wall of China.

The Twin Towers before 9/11. Now I want to see the memorial site in NY and the new national park being built in PA.

North Pole, duh. It is "cooler" than any of the other sites mentioned. I mean, Giza is in a hot desert in Africa!

A plaque explaining the geodetic center of the United States, near the intersection of highways 24 and 281. I've visited that spot hundreds of times.

Foucault pendulum in/with sand. Any of them. I'm not picky. Of course, that penquin exhibit at the Omaha zoo is quite something.

I like Diamond Head in Honoulu (but hate Waikiki Beach otherwise)

I also like Pike's Peak.

Not the biggest mountain, but it you can see all over central Co

If we are talking man made stuff, then the Empire State Building is very impressive to see....

The Eiffel Tower lit up at night is mind blowingly beautiful.

Quiet day for earthquakes so far today, but look at yesterday's data from Harrisburg AR. http://folkworm.ceri.memphis.edu/heli/heli_bb_ceri/HBAR_HHZ_NM_00.2011051912.gif

going to the lake for the rapture. Going to pretend I am a t Bluegrass. I am quit sure that we will all still be there on Sunday.

I will go for the pyramids in Egypt. I just can't even imagine how great they would be to see in person.

The Eiffel Tower, The Statue of Liberty? Besides being French, they are both so Takei...

I was going to say the world's largest taco. But when I googled it, it didn't seem that appetizing. I'm kind of sad now.

Must build better giant taco before the world ends.

Please gather cheese.

"The World's Largest Hand-Dug Well!"

Snap knows. Actually, The Well is my failsafe option if I can't get to the compound Saturday evening.

Eiffel Tower?! No way, nothing French can be considered as an answer to this question. Sorry Autie, just saving T_O_B the time to say that.

The Mayan Temples and Ruins. Never seen them in person, but I can image that they are just as spectacular as the Pyramids and Sphinx.

It's hard to choose. There are so many roundabouts to choose from.

The landscape of this tiny planet will look completely different five years from now. Those of you who live through the changes will witness it all...right to the very end.

Roed, think you're going to need a some theme park music for your tours.

The pile of t#rds and kitty litter behind the bunker created by Tommy The Basement Cat. It has developed a slight heartbeat and I believe I saw it move under it's own power yesterday. Tours daily at 10 and 2. . . 37 1/2 hours left until the rapture.

Neuschwanstein Castle has been my favorite since the first time I saw it more than 50 years ago.

I think Taj Mahal is one of the good landmark in the world which situated in India.It is an example of how deeply a man loved his wife, that even after she remained but a memory, he made sure that this memory would never fade away. This man was the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, who was head-over-heels in love with Mumtaz Mahal, his dear wife.It's the history of Taj Mahal that adds a soul to its magnificence: a soul that is filled with love, loss, remorse, and love again.Annie

Mato Tipila, the Bear Lodge, known to "white folks" as Devil's Tower in North-Eastern Wyoming.

The pyramids in Giza. They must have been spectacular when new and were still covered by casing stones that formed a smooth white outer surface.

A clip: Some sources suggest that the capstone might have been sheathed in gold. Between the white limestone and the golden cap the pyramid would have made an impressive sight shining in the bright Egyptian sun.
