freetomato: Fart_Machine:What the hell is that?
Tommy Moo: I know it's a longshot, but it would be so awesome if this dude washed out somewhere and clawed his way through a cave and showed up filthy and pissed off at his own funeral.
Shadune: Alex Broughton Butt Chugger: Anal Tobacco Furnace: djh0101010: Full page popup ad and 11 page article with a paragraph each? Fark that. Why do so many sites do Mobile totally wrong?There are many reasons. A large reason is because it is a very new platform and developers are still in training mode.Sure, couldn't be the fact that with 10 more pages per article you get 10x more advertising revenue. It's because they are newbies. Gotcha.[i.imgur.com image 272x307]The internet does not work that way!
vudukungfu: Global warming, rising water tables. Sink holes.
Elegy: I pulled the LiDAR for this area. Green dot is the house, red arrows are pre-existing karst features. LinkOne of the problems with how they develop in this problem is how they treat sinks. You can tell the area around the house is pretty terraformed. Basically they'll backfill any small sinkholes and build over them. Larger ones are squared off and used as retention ponds.Anyways, there's a chance this was more than sheer dumb luck - or at least dumb luck of a different kind. If the guy had a water leak under his house, it could have acted as a trigger by washing out the soil under he house and into the sinkhole.
PunGent: Tommy Moo: I know it's a longshot, but it would be so awesome if this dude washed out somewhere and clawed his way through a cave and showed up filthy and pissed off at his own funeral.I read a wild story from back when they were digging New York CIty's aqueducts; one worker was a couple hundred feet down in a pressurized shaft, they had a blowout, a couple of his buddies were killed...but he gets forced into a crevice by the overpressure, then forced up through a seam, and literally squirts up out of the ground on a 20' spray of water.Couple ruptured eardrums, but he survived.

perigee: I know what you've got. You've got a gateway to hell under your house. And that is really cool.
TommyymmoT: Those must some great building codes they have there.The house was built on a concrete slab with no basement, and I saw no rebar in that picture.What kind of cheap ass builder pours a slap without rebar?The home builder killed that guy just as much as the sink hole did.
