    FoD is more common for Frauenkirche of Dresden. Z is more common for Statue of Zues, Col is more common for Coloseum, but I have not come across an abbreviation for Alcatraz as yet

    Well done surge, I like that, let Alcatraz henceforth be abbreviated to AZ, all those in favour, please express your opinions

    I would have to disagree on that; I've seen "SoZ" or just "Zeus" but I've never seen "Z" as an abbreviation for Statue of Zeus.

    Shouldn't Cap for Capitol be Crap?

    That GB should be renamed 'The Crapitol' as it's pretty much garbage, though it can earn its keep for a while, inno tower and the habitat heavily outclass it.
