The new 7 wonders of Nature: Iran’s Mount Damavand and Kuwait’s Failaka Island

Good old mother nature (or daddy nature for the sake of not sounding sexist) is taking part in a beauty pageant and is asking you guys for your vote 🙂

Since the site has a scary “INFORMATION ON REPRODUCING AND COPYING THIS RANKING INFORMATION” clause I am refraining from putting my copy and paste talent to good use here and will just c ‘n p their url:

I wanted to blindly vote for Mount Damavand from Iran and Failaka from Kuwait, but apparently I have 7 votes in the following categories and  have to cast all my 7 votes at once 😦


Mount Damavan’s current ranking is 8 in group C and Failaka’s current ranking is 21 in group B

BUT for both of them their status is currently pending!!

OSC Status: Pending
