Post Travel Channel's list

I'm watching Travel Channel about 7 Man-made wonders of America. When I googled that, I was directed here. So I thot I'd post their list (which appears here in alphabetical order): Seven Man-Made Wonders of the U.S.: Seven Wonders: Travel Channel. While the show does not list in that order, they do not say if it's in order of popularity or how they arrange it. (So far, they've shown, in order: Golden Gate Bridge, Space Needle, Mt. Rushmore, Hoover Dam, Empire State Bldg, Brooklyn Bridge, Washington Monument.

It beats a lot on many lists. The thing is pretty huge, and there aren't that many arches around.

I hate that fricking mall. Maybe because I went when it was only 95+ degrees out. MISERABLE. No shade, too spread out, nothing but museums, too long. Just a miserable trip.
