When I was a kid, there was a movie called The Gate, where claymation demons emerged from a giant hole in the ground.

What bothered me was that Hell was emerging from a particular house in the neighborhood, but none of the neighbors seemed too concerned.

Oh Florida, what would we do without you to laugh at?

Not another sinkhole, just the same one again with the same picture and an article that is mostly a summary and quote of the original...

I've got a neighbor that might be Satan, so I'm not sure if I'd be surprised either.

I'm always afraid of this happening to me. No one mentioned that when mentioning the benefits of home-ownership.

Home ownership is great! You can do whatever you want to decorate the place, fill it with all your favorite things, and GET SWALLOWED WHOLE BY THE ANGRY EARTH.

Out of curiosity, are there many caves in Florida that aren't at least partially submerged? I've done a lot of caving in WV and VA, but underwater caving scares the hell out of me. Read too many stories of people drowning.

Marianna is the only place that I am aware of.  http://www.stateparks.com/florida_caverns_state_park_in_florida.html

My opinion is that there needs to be a sinkhole superfund paid for by land developers for putting too many people in one place and sucking too much water out of the ground, and that the superfund pays first dollar on sinkhole losses and the insurers pay excess of fund balances.  Too bad those developers tend to put money into legislators' pockets.
