TRIVIA ABOUT SOME OF THE WORLD'S MOST POPULAR LANDMARKS THE STATUE OF LIBERTY was once a lighthouse. Lady Liberty was a gift from France, intended to serve as a reminder of freedom. Then-president Grover Cleveland, however, thought the statue would best be used as a light source. After several failed attempts to get the electrical wiring working, the structure was finally ready to be used as a lighthouse. The structure lit the way for 16 years, but was later deemed an unfit way to treat the symbol and its lighthouse days ended on March 1, 1902. LONDON'S Clock Tower isn’t really named Big Ben. Just about everyone in the world refers to the pivotal Clock Tower, which defines the city of London, as Big Ben. But we’re all dead wrong. The little known truth is the tower isn’t actually named Big Ben. That’s the name of the bell inside of it but the tower itself is named Elizabeth Tower, after Queen Elizabeth II. We wonder if the Queen is offended that no one calls it by its real name. THE GREAT WALL OF ...

Thinks Gene Simmons should NEVER take off his makeup. Singing the SSB and I wanted to change the channel...Sunday Fun Fact: The Clock Tower in London isn't called "Big Ben" as widely assumed. The actual name is the Elizabeth Tower.

Impressed by our tour of Elizabeth Tower today: Standing next to Big Ben (the 13 ton bell), with ear plugs in, as it chimed 3pm. Standing inside the clock face, able to touch the white glass. Watching the massive clock mechanism glacial, then frantic. All for the bargain price of £0.00.
London : Trafalgar Square. One of the busiest squares in London. It is a custom for London to gather at Trafalgar Square on New Year's Eve to ring in the New Year from here as they will be able to see the Elizabeth Tower and hear Big Ben chime. Trafalgar Square is home to Nelson's Column, iconic stone lions, the famous Fourth Plinth and a lot of pigeons.
Big Ben is actually the bell inside. That is known as Elizabeth Tower now. Dedicated to the queen for her jubilee last year
London : The House of Commons and Elizabeth Tower. The famous symbol of London the Clock Tower is now known as Elizabeth Tower and the bell of course is Big Ben. The Parliament buildings with the sun shining on it looked like they were made of gold. Both the tower and the House of Commons are beautiful buildings and some say the most beautiful found along the Thames.
I walked into my gym this afternoon and saw someone painting a mural. Only the silhouettes were finished. "What are you painting?" I asked. "London Bridge, Big Ben, and Westminster Cathedral," he replied. "What did you think they were?" "Tower Bridge, Elizabeth Tower and Westminster Abby," I said. "Wrong," he said. "I guess you don't know London." "I guess not." I hadn't the heart to tell him not one of them was actually in the City of London.
It will always be Big Ben though it will be going through a name change.

AROUND THE WORLD - Most people think Big Ben is the Clock Tower at the Palace of Westminister (the British Houses Of Parliament in London). But the name actually belongs to a huge bell inside the Tower. It was named after Benjamin Hall, the civil engineer who ordered the bell cast. The bell was supposed to be called Victoria, after the Queen, but the common people nicknamed it Big Ben and the name stuck. The clock is an excellent timekeeper and Big Ben is known for its loud chim every hour. The monument is to be renamed Elizabeth Tower to mark the Queen's 60th year on the throne.
Did you know: *The Great Pyramid of Giza is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to remain largely intact. Egyptologists believe that the pyramid was built as a tomb for fourth dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu (Cheops in Greek) over a 10 to 20-year period concluding around 2560 BCE. *The construction of the Roman Colosseum started in 72 AD under the emperor Vespasian and was completed in 80 AD under Titus, with further modifications being made during Domitian's reign (81–96). *Big Ben, officially named the Elizabeth Tower, was completed in 1858, and holds the largest four-faced chiming clock in the world and is the third-tallest free-standing Clock Tower. *The Statue of Liberty was designed by Frédéric Bartholdi and dedicated on October 28, 1886. The statue was a gift to the United States from the people of France.

Today (26th Dec.) is the feast day of St Stephen, who was a deacon in the church in Jerusalem in cAD34-35. Following a disagreement, he was denounced for blasphemy (Acts 6.11.) His trial before the Sanhedrin (Acts 7.52). his theophany (Acts 7.56), and his subsequent martyrdom have resulted in St Stephen being venerated as a saint by all the Western Christian churches, including the Anglican church. St Stephen is the patron saint of coffin makers, deacons, altar servers, headaches, masons, horses, and the state of Serbia. His name appears in the well known English carol "Good King Wenceslas" (composed in 1853) Relatively few places bear his name in Britain, although St Stephens Chapel built in the reign of Heny III, occupied the site later used as the first debating chamber of the House of Commons, hence you will hear it referred to in Welsh as San Steffan. The Elizabeth Tower that houses `Big Ben` was until the Diamond Jubilee known as St Stephens Tower.

Big Ben renamed as Elizabeth Tower - and there was such a cry when VT was renamed as CST :P
Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated. Lawmaker formally unveils new name of tower housing London’s famed Big Ben LONDON — The iconic Clock Tower of Britain’s Parliament was officially renamed Wednesday in honor of Queen Elizabeth II. The 315-foot (96-meter)-high structure — widely, though incorrectly, known as Big Ben — is one of Britain’s most recognizable landmarks. House of Commons Speaker John Bercow unveiled a new name plaque designating the structure the Elizabeth Tower. The renaming ceremony is the culmination of a campaign by lawmakers to mark the monarch’s 60 years on the throne. The tower was completed in 1858. It houses a four-faced chiming clock and the famed 13.5 ton Big Ben bell. Over the years, people began calling the whole tower Big Ben — and likely will continue to do so. “There’s not one chance in 10,000 that visitors, that people in this country, will think of this tower as anything but Big Ben,” Labour Party lawmaker Paul Flynn said.

Last night was the Premier of the final season of Weeds. The show opened with the original version of "Little Boxes". For some reason that made me deliriously happy.

It's just been one of those weeks.

"Can people stop comparing Justin Bieber and 1D before I jump off the Big Ben" its the Elizabeth Tower now...sooo
News Media, by way of reporters saying that officially it’s now Elizabeth Tower, are now saying that Big Ben is no longer Big Ben. But it never officially was Big Ben, and it’s not the tower but the clock in the top of the tower, and its name is not what it is but what humans call it and may or may not continue to call by their own initiative or habit. The Fleet Center is now the TD Bank North Garden unless some other company has bought the right to name it, and the Superdome is now the Mercedes Benz Superdome, but only those corporations care. And Big Ben doesn’t stop at stop-watching periods of petty pomp. It’s tolled a city’s centuries. www.hitrt.com
Big Ben will be renamed Elizabeth Tower, but I think I'm still going to call it Big Ben. :/

I have also heard reports of a Grand Prix being hosted in London around Buckingham Palace, the Big Ben Clock Tower, now Elizabeth Tower, and other famous landmarks. F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone himself is offering to put up the money for it, estimated at between 35 and 55 million dollars.
If the Brits want to rename Big Ben, that's their business. But I refuse to participate based soley on the fact that repeatedly saying "Look kids - Elizabeth Tower, Parliament" doesn't have the same ring to it.

Well folks, it now seems the Transgender movement has spread its tentacles into the great city of London, England. It appears that even 'Big Ben' will now take the plunge and go under the 'knife'! I am sure supporters of the LGBT cause are tickled that the giant clock will soon have his big brass 'bells' removed. Reports are sketchy concerning what will take their place, but one popular choice would be a synthhesizer playing a wide range of musical melodies. These tones would be drastically different from the 'masculine' sounding bell banging that Big Ben is known for. It would no doubt have much broader appeal to the plethora of culturally diversified peoples of the world. After Ben's transformation is complete, he will forever be known as, Elizabeth Tower. When this metamorphosis is to take place has not yet been determined, however, many are already calling for him to change his outter appearence as well. Perhaps a new coat of paint with colors borrowed from a nearby rainbow would suffice? Note* This p ...

Instead of Elizabeth Tower, why don't the Brits rename Big Ben "Ronald Reagan Tower"? Pretty ungrateful if you ask me.
Dear ignorami of the world, the bell and clock are called Big Ben, it is actually the Clock Tower of Westminster Palace that will be renamed Elizabeth Tower ...I didn't sit on a tour bus listening to this oft-forgotten fact in the middle of winter just so you all could get it wrong, okay? okay... "...Ooooh, bitter much, you closeted Anglophilic royal-groupie..?"
Big Ben no more! English lawmakers have renamed the iconic London landmark after Queen Elizabeth...heretofore to be called Elizabeth Tower.
Minor rant for this morning. Renaming the London landmark Big Ben 'Elizabeth Tower' is just lame. It'll never stick! GIVE IT UP!! Rant over.
"Big Ben is still Big Ben.Big Ben is the bell inside the now-named Elizabeth Tower, formerly the Clock Tower."
Oh NO! London no longer has Big Ben! I am glad I got to see Big Ben. Now they have Elizabeth Tower .just won't be the same
I don't know about any of you, but for me, "The Elizabeth Tower" just doesn't have the same ring to it as "Big Ben."
I think it's about the most inane thing I've heard, the British changing that time honored tradition by renaming Big Ben as the "Elizabeth Tower." I should display a more positive resistance and continue to call it Big Ben, but I'll probably take the cynical route and call it "Big Beth" (or "Bong Bong Beth." Maybe "Bling Bling Beth." I'll resist "Banging Betty.")
London's Big Ben to be renamed Elizabeth Tower via RT
tell me it is a joke ? Big Ben is being renamed Elizabeth Tower ? are u serious ?
I guess nobody will call the name bcoz Big Ben is the nickname: Big Ben WILL be renamed the Elizabeth Tower
Why would the Brits change the name of Big Ben to Elizabeth Tower? Don't they know that people would make of Roethlisberger with that name?
Big Ben is being renamed "Elizabeth Tower", because it is still easier to say than 'Roethlisberger'.
Big Ben will still be Big Ben. Itll just be inside Elizabeth Tower
Big Ben is renamed "Elizabeth Tower" WHY? no disrespect to the Queen but they have just finished off iconic landmark by renaming it
Olympic 2012 symbolic destruction of the queen! Big Ben's tower renamed Elizabeth Tower
“Big Ben Clock Tower to be renamed 'Elizabeth Tower'. No! if 70% of public against it, why change it?
PM on renaming of tower housing Big Ben to Elizabeth Tower: "a fitting recognition of The Queen's sixty years of service".
Big Ben is being renamed Elizabeth Tower. I'm ok with this, gets rid of all the *** jokes... hopefully.
So, if they changed Big Ben's name to Elizabeth Tower, should Roethlisberger change his nickname to Elizabeth, too?
"Elizabeth Tower" the tower was often called St Stephen's tower it is the main bell that is called Big Ben
So they're renaming Big Ben to Elizabeth Tower? I think they should change Ben Roethlisberger's nickname to that as well.
Now that Big Ben is being renamed to Elizabeth Tower does that mean we also have to start calling him Elizabeth Roethlisberger?
The Clock Tower we call Big Ben (which is in fact the bell) will be renamed Elizabeth Tower which we'll call Big Ben
