Mother Nature can be quite cruel, it's true
Particularly out of the blue
Mudslides to typhoons
Sinkholes to monsoons
In Guangzhou or.... a province near you

Obligatory.

An hour later the sinkhole wanted another building.

It was just another money hole.

No biggie, there are 500 companies building cheap knockoffs of those buildings as I type.. It'll look exactly like before the hole in a week.

That's not a "massive" sinkhole, it's not even a giant or a huge sinkhole.

THIS is a massive sinkhole

I am disappoint. I expected to see a Chinese version of Cleveland in a bathtub yelling NO, NO, NO just before falling into the sinkhole.

My god, that's incredible. Changing camera angle completely changes the surrounding buildings and property usage, the road layout, the condition of the road, and... well, basically everything in the photo except the farking great hole.

It's almost as if they're two completely different locations.

Sinkholes are nightmare material. I was a little kid the first time I saw one on the news. Very unsettling!

Oops, they're both in Guatemala I think and I didn't look at the GIS that closely.

Ahhh. Back when I was picking beans in Guatemala we used to make fresh coffee. Right off the trees I mean. That was good. This is shiat...

Thanks for that, came here to say... something.

off topic here but since it is in China I read this story and it reminded me I remember reading about the dam on the three gorges. something about the sheer size of it and the water behind it has made the earth's tilt change. which for some reason I thought about what would happen since there are mudslides and such going on, if the dam were to completely fail?
 
2013-01-30 01:42:46 AM
Milhouse! You were supposed to be watching the building.

I did, Bart. First it started to fall, then it fell.
 
2013-01-30 03:17:57 AM
If you peer inside the hole you can see where the Chinese are hiding the cure for AIDS and the last unicorn.
 
2013-01-30 03:19:45 AM
Looks like the Chinese government is slipping. Stuff like this in the past wouldn't be made public and the offending person who took that shot would be in prison or what not. Amarite?
 
2013-01-30 04:59:25 AM
For some reason I read that as China building ,massive sink hole, I'm not sure what my point was or if I had one.

/We should not alough a sinkhole gape?

There are people worried that the Three Gorges dam isn't built strong enough to survive a large earth quake. Also there are worries of cascading dam failures. Where failure of a dam upstream causes the dams (often larger) also fail.

Also, see Sayano-Shushenskaya

"Mommy, Look we have a new basement!"

I cannot believe that all of those people just stood around taking pictures.

My best sinkhole story.  I was walking to work.  I turned a corner and saw the roof of a car up the road.  A tow truck arrived as I reached the scene.  My neighbor had parked her car on the street the night before.  Over night, the pavement had given in and her car was now below street level up to the door handles.  I walked on but looked back to see the tow truck driver scratching his head.

The cause of the sinkhole was a broken sewer line, and somehow that perplexed tow truck driver got the car out without a scratch.  Funny things happen on Mulberry Street.
