Discussion on Great Wall

DC :

Three guys, a Canadian, Osama Bin Laden and Uncle Sam are out walking together one day. They come across a lantern and a Genie pops out of it. "I will give each of you one wish, that's three wishes total," says the Genie. The Canadian says, "I am a farmer, my dad was a farmer, and my son will also farm. I want the land to be forever fertile in Canada." With a blink of the Genie's eye, 'POOF' the land in Canada was forever made fertile for farming. Osama Bin Laden was amazed, so he said, "I want a wall around Afghanistan, so that no infidels, Jews or Americans can come into our precious state." Again, with a blink of the Genie's eye, 'POOF' there was a huge wall around Afghanistan. "Uncle Sam" (a former civil engineer), asks, "I'm very curious. Please tell me more about this wall." The Genie explains, "Well, it's about 15,000 feet high, 500 feet thick and completely surrounds the country; nothing can get in or out -- virtually impenetrable." Uncle Sam says, "Fill it with water."

In what city is the Great Wall of China found? I am on the new map thing by Yahoo in which you can see satalite pictures. I was trying to find the Great Wall of CHina in the satalite but am having no luck, somebody please help? :)

"It isn't in a's a huge wall running for a great distance between China and Mongolia... for more info look here... "
mac :
"the main portion starts at the sea at shanghaiguan near qinhuangdao. north of beijing zhang jiakou north of datong near yinchuan"
Lisa :
"It's really hard to spot the Great Wall of China. I tried doing the same thing on Google Earth and I couldn't find it, let alone see it. Plus the clarity and resolution isn't great so you can't get close enough to see the wall. Everything just seems blurry because it's outside the city. But you can see Beijing and the Forbidden City and other historical sights that are pretty cool."
aprilfool108 :
"The Great Wall does not pass through any major cities but you can easily visit it as a day trip from many cities including Beijing. Most tourists see the Great Wall as a day trip from Beijing, the journey is about two hours each way, depending on which part of the wall you visit. It's possible to camp on the Wall or stay in various guest houses a short distance away. Check a travel guide for more info. By the way, it is a myth that the Great Wall can be seen by the naked eye from orbit. The Wall is very hard to see because it is made out of earth and stone- the same materials as the surrounding countryside. Many other man-made things are much easier to see from space because they are lit up at night (like, virtually any city) or because they are made of a different material than their surroundings."

Everyone’s heard of the Great Wall of China. Anyone for the Great Wall of Texas? I think that building 40 feet high, 15 feet thick wall along the Mexican border will help with immigration. What do you think? And instead of building a super highway that goes from Mexico to Canada, use that money for this GREAT WALL.

"I'm for the Great Wall of California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas And don't forget 10 feet of razor wire at the top of it"
toffeefan :
"And the Great Wall of China, was it successful? Did it hold the invading hordes out? Yeah, that's what I thought. In a few hundred years history will reflect that our "great fence" was just as big a failure as Hammurabi's wall or the Great Wall of China."
bekkiboo30 :
"As a Texan, I agree with you 100%.."
niecy :
"great idea."
La Gueta Micaela :
"They can live where-ever they want......don't u get it......Stop being so nit-picky. Your rhetoric sounds just like what people said when the Black Civil Rights Movement took place. What did they say when this occurred. "They just going to take over ain't they" come on get a grip. Immigrants.....yes the illegals are here to stay. If you are ready for civil war here in the United States on top of defending ourselves from these infiltrated terrorist keep on spouting your rhetoric which amounts to nothing as long as your cowardly sit looking at that screen. You scary cat I wish they would just deport "RACIST" from my country."
Morey000 :
"the great wall of china didn't work. Nor will one across texas, NM, AZ, CA. I think we need a more creative solution to the problem... which isn't nearly as much of a problem as the media and the emotions portray it."
tuisson :
"Won't that be pretty (It didn't work for China, either - they got in anyway)"
Stifle yourself,Liberal! :
"From Texas to California with snipers every mile or so,or whatever the killing distance of a 50cal. sniper rifle is. I know the great Chinese wall didn't work, you ninnies!! They didn't have sniper rifles like they do now.I didn't say to defend it with slingshots."
arkie :
"and of new mexico and of arizona and of california and then we can biuld the great wall of the north."
Leogirl0804 :
"We could make it a tourist attraction and get the wall to pay for itself! Brilliant idea, absolutely brilliant."

seanachie60 :

lillo :
"the americans don't know how to waste their money"

☼≡Ruby≡☼ :
"YEP!! Money WELL spent!! It would save us BILLIONS ANNUALLY by not paying out through the @ss for welfare, medical, housing, legal costs, prison costs, education, special language classes,... to the illegals. Roxanna-We have laws for a reason. To control the number of people entering our country and to screen those entering for illegal activity and disease. Would you like to find out we let terrorists in through that border? They may have already entered, there is evidence of the possibility. You might sing a different tune when you get TB or Hepatitus and it's traced back to an illegal who served your food at a restaurant. MANY diseases, not seen in the USA for decades, are making an appearance in states bordering Mexico. Do you like the way your taxes have skyrocketed in the past ten years? Well, I don't! And illegal invaders are one of the reasons for it. There are multiples of reasons illegals need to be STOPPED."
Eiti :
"Yeah! Great! Just like the big wall in Berlín! Let´s separate all those mexicans from our brilliant "americans". So we can make history as the biggest RACISTS and IDIOTS of all times! Oh my God... people like you make me think about the existence of human evolution..."
roxannafw :
"Of course not!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If it didn't work then why will it work now........ You cant stop immigrants from coming and crossing the border, you do that and they'll find others ways to immigrate. Why can't you understand taht people just want jobs. There's poverty, and people just want an oppurtunity to better themselves, if there country wont do nothing for them why cant we help??????????"
Omar D :
"The Great wall of China is not dividing nations, but instead the greatest walls of Germany and Mexico are or were dividing Nations. Are u Nation less?"
Sabine :
"OMG. No wonder the Europeans are laughing at us. To the non-Americans in YA, this is NOT a representative sampling of American intelligence. There are intelligent Americans around(despite evidence to the contrary), only, they're not raising stupid questions like this one so we don't hear from them. I'm embarrassed to be getting to cheap points off of this as it is..."
tat2me1960 :
"You are SO duped. Ever heard of NAFTA? Are you aware of what Bush has been doing with NAFTA? Do you know about the NAFAT superhighway systems being built out of Mexico and through our country? Do you know our highways will be innundated with Mexican truckers NEXT YEAR? Do you know what POLITICAL DEFLECTION is? It's when a party CREATES issues to deflect people from it's REAL actions. This administration has really perfected it, too. They've divided us right down the middle with their deflections. We're so busy looking for each other's fouls, we've all lost sight of the ball."

There sure seems to be a great deal of debate as to whether we are in a recession now in the US or not. Even though the New York Giants (big underdogs) upset the Patriots to win the Super-Bowl, American investors are feeling a tad queasy today. Is Wall Street about to be eviscerated again? What is the next big "shoe" to drop? Would you know a ...?

Video of the illusionist David Copperfield walking through the Great Wall. Worth it to see some amazing scenery.

It is reported that people leapt to their deaths from Wall Street offices during the great stock market crash of 1929. These same folks probably buried loved ones and endured huge tragedies in life, yet they could not cope with the loss of their fortunes. Many people consider their financial condition as a sign of their self-worth...

Davanza's Old Town located at 690 Park Avenue, a block from "the lift", is the place to go for authentic southwest tacos. This rustic brew pub rates a 4 out of 5 snowflakes for having great food, microbrew on tap, metal Corona tables, walls lined with hundreds of beer cans, and a Texas Longhorn banner on the ceiling.
