What they didn't show was Scylla lurking behind the cameraman.

You know what they call people who stand close to something like that? Victims.

Sink hole.  A big one, from the looks of it.

Wow, it was like a miniature version of the TARP bailout!

Even though he's not speeding away with a deaf daughter at the end, this guy's way dumber than the guy who filmed the fertilizer plant fire. That will be the one good thing about Google Glass - when someone gets swallowed up by a sinkhole, his footage will be already in the cloud.

Anyone ever heard of The Strid? (At least with a whirlpool, you can SEE that it wants to eat you...)
 
2013-04-24 02:54:46 AM
Wasn't exactly monstrous. Would like to know the cause though.
 
2013-04-24 03:46:41 AM
That gives me the creeps. That's about as bad as staring at that giant overflow hole in the middle of that one dam in that one state. You know the one.

Unbelievable, right? Damn that Bush.

ShawnDoc: Wasn't exactly monstrous. Would like to know the cause though.


It's in what looks like a fairly large river.  My theory is that there may be a waterfall a short distance downstream, and that whirlpool goes into a tunnel that exits out somewhere below the top of the waterfall.

Very interesting, but I thought Yakov Smirnov references were banned on Fark.

its probably just a field drain to help get meltwater off the land

boohyah: its probably just a field drain to help get meltwater off the land


Or an inlet for a factory.

The fact that it stays the same size throughout probably means it's not a sinkhole, as the soil would erode away and make the hole bigger.  And Siberian geology isn't exactly sinkhole-friendly (no limestone, saturated permafrost sub-soil)

Ah, WIMP, stealing other people's videos again.

From the original YouTube video page:

18.04.2013. Dviete, Latvia
Monstrous whirlpool in parish Dviete, Latvia swallows everything in its path. Swallowing everything dragged towards its direction, this monstrous whirlpool looks as if a plug has been pulled from the ground beneath.

My thought too.  Thankfully, Googlemaps has a picture split right in the middle of the village in question and you can clearly see that the green fields of summer are overflowing with water in spring.

This video (along with the exploding whale) are always Fark favorites.

Well, that sucked.
 
2013-04-24 11:29:22 AM
Looks like floodwater being sucked through a large-ish road culvert to me.  I bet when that ice dam on the river clears you would see a regular everyday 6' concrete culvert where that whirlpool is.

At least it's better than Fark Video which just reposts things that appeared on WIMP the day before.

Yeah, I'm a bit torn... Fark's embedding page is now hosed in that you cannot "fullscreen" the video (which is strange, because the embedded videos on my own web site still have the fullscreen button), but... they are at least kind enough to include a direct link back to the video as well as a copy of the summary form the original YouTube page.

WIMP's format does give you the ability to fullscreen, but the reference still requires a bit of legwork to get back to the original and get more detailed information.

I've noticed LiveLeak "stealing" YouTube videos now. I guess hosting video is expensive.

Gotta kinda give props on the camera work, he must have had some kind of steadycam thing going.
 
2013-04-24 03:20:12 PM
I think he's draining runoff through a valve in a reservoir.  There's one on my neighbors and Fathers pond, so I suspect the same to be true of anywhere prone to over flowing.
