I thought Reagan tore down that wall. That's what my Kansas high school science book "Jesus and Reagan; How the Gods made the universe by inventing America" said.

sno man: RexTalionis: The original Great Wall dates back to seventh century China, but the section in Zhangjiakou was rebuilt more than 500 years ago in 1484 during the Ming Dynasty.

The original Great Wall started construction in 220 BC, not 7th Century China.

Still one of the only man made objects visible from space, the wall is made of stone, brick, tamped earth, wood, and other materials.

No, it isn't.

Well just cause YOU can't see it from space...
"one of the" as in 'not the only', but it's still a shortish list in daylight.
is it the materials list you have issue with?

According to Google Earth, you can see my car from space. Or from a really nosy plane. I'm not sure.

RexTalionis: If you're willing to pay a fee, I'm sure you can hire someone to carry you to the top on a palanquin.

Don't worry. I'm sure the perpetrators and any Chinese citizen the Communists think might even remember this event will be put to death. Problem solved, Communist style.

I don't see what the problem is. According to the map, the Russians took care of the Mongols already.

Over a million people died while building the Great Wall. According to some sources, the bodies were buried within the Wall's foundation. According to other sources, the bodies were were actually buried near the Wall, not in it, because the builders knew that a rotting corpse would only leave a chink in the Wall...thus compromising it and causing it to crumble...Hey! Wait a minute....
