11 – Stonehenge, UK
This ancient timepiece was a bit too old-school for this reviewer.
12 – Maccu Piccu, Peru
“They are stone ruins on top of a hill.”
13 – Nazca Lines, Peru
These enormous 2,500-year-old geoglyphs are “completely uninteresting.” Peru really is pants, eh?
14 – Terracotta Warriors, China
Can these ancient warrior casts ever be considered to be “inconvenient”? Were they not giving the tourists proper directions or something?
15 – Very Large Array, New Mexico
Just a bunch of stupid pointy things.
16 – Arecibo Observatory, Puerto Rico
Made famous among non-scientists thanks to the James Bond flick GoldenEye, this reviewer thinks that only “science geeks” need visit. Completely nonplussed, they describe the telescope itself as “a big thing hanging from some wires.”
17 – Paris Catacombs, France
The complaint here is essentially that these catacombs contain far too many skulls and bones. That’s like saying a restaurant has too much food inside it.
All these scientific institutions, natural wonders, or archaeological sites are actually breathtaking, by the way. Plonk them all on your bucket list if you haven’t done so already.
