Sink Holes

Recommended Posts

MarshalMoo

Hi, guys. This is a topic for everyone to share the latest on sinkholes and information in general. What are they? Why are they happening? Are they happening more frequently? Have you ever come across a sinkhole yourself?

 

I have nearly fallen in some man-sized holes. It's a hazard if you run in prairie or something. Probably the biggest sinkhole I've seen was 20 feet by 20 feet and I'm not sure how deep. I started to crawl in it, but got scared because I didn't have a flashlight and I was by myself. It might have sank on me.

 

Anyway, here's a wide range of scary sinkholes for us to talk about and please feel free to share your personal experiences with sinkholes.

^ Now that's a sinkhole.

 

Just know this: At any moment, the ground below you could collapse and swallow you into the ground. No one would probably ever find your body, either.

I live in Florida about half a mile from the beach, and it's a sinkhole zone. At any moment can a sinkhole bust out of nowhere and eat your entire family and leave you weeping in sorrow, giving handjobs to strangers behind a 7/11 to get money to rebuild your shattered life.

 

That's one of the many reasons why I hate Florida.

That last sinkhole is horrifying! Everyone here talks about it all the time. It's just that devastating.

Same here, except I think I've seen one sinkhole ever in real life, and I'm not even sure it was a natural sinkhole. It sort of looked like if someone pushed a running hose into the ground and all the dirt and sand around the hole started caving inward toward the hole on a slope. Someone told me it was a sinkhole though. Now that I'm older I think someone was messing with water a little bit too much. :sigh:

It was shaped like this tub. Maybe a little bit more concave, but not too much. And it was huge, like with a diameter of 30+ feet.

 

After looking up sinkholes for about five or six minutes I have concluded that they're nothing more than dark, twisted fairy tales created by political cartoonists and conspiracy theorist nutjobs who want to wish some sort of legitimate or financial death on things or people that are built on the ground. It would seem to follow that Florida and Texas are some of the "riskier" areas. One "article" I found even mentioned the possibility of the entire country of Chile sinking into the ocean to allow new beachfront property for Argentina. How far will these dark wizards of geology go to appease their thirst for instilling fear in their enemies?

I've lived here for almost 9 years and I haven't found a sinkhole that wasn't on the news. I guess sinkholes don't happen much in Daytona.

I forgot we updated our design.

I'm still on the 2013 theme. It's a good, simple theme for simple people like me, aside from the everything-related-to-V banner

The new theme f*cks up my desktop as you can see. I changed for the screenshot it because I figured otherwise this post would be flooded with 'oh my god you still use the old theme.'

The Big Hole in Kimberley (in that vid) isn't even a sinkhole. It's a mine, excavated by hand

Opera? This man lives dangerously.

 

Anyhoo, there's been a few sinkholes from the floods in the UK; one near I live in Hemel is 35ft wide and 20ft deep, and goes under a road and a few houses. Another under the centrepoint of a motorway...gotta love sinkholes.

Opera is the safest browser bro. Also the fastest and the least sh*t. It was also the first one to use multiple tabs in one browser.

Why didn't you leave one funny tab on for the screenshot so someone could make a funny joke about a funny tab being open.

Blue holes are scary looking as hell. The thought of swimming in shallow water and then suddenly hovering over +100ft deep water is scary.

Vanzant

Ah yes. I have been to the 6th Avenue strip club. I advise none of to go but if you ever feel like investigating more it's in Terre Haute, Indiana. Don't tip the waitress and don't tell them "vanzant" sent you.
