9. Blarney Stone
It doesn't look like much, but in this age of cynicism, there's no more beautiful site than the continued existence of sweet, sweet gullibility. Frenching on this rock is said to endow some of its visitors with special powers. What kind of special powers? Being able to spit game. How can you be granted this gift of gab? You gotta kiss the Blarney Stone. Blarney means flattering, flirtatious talk. Kiss the Blarney stone, get Blarney. Sound easy? Well, after scaling the castle around it, you’ve got to lie on your back and, hang upside-down—as there’s a substantial parapet between you and the smoochable stone. If you only kiss one rock in your life, try and make sure it’s this one (and not Dwayne Johnson).
