What is that caused by?! It has to be geological, not supernatural, surely… although I am secretly hoping it’ll call Dr Who to Earth and he’ll fix it, which would mean he’s real
Tha’s pretty awesome.
Does anyone know what and where it is?
how far down does it go?
Reminds me of my ex girlfriend
That’s not a hole to hell. I fell off my balcony and my dick broke the cement
damn. is it just me or does it look like it opens up into a large cavern type area? either way it sucks pretty bad
When you pump all that oil out of the ground there is bound to be a sink hole here & there! Blank spaces deep inside the earth WILL fill up! Gravity comes from WITHIN!
Just the right size for my penis.
Whenever I have a gaping hole that big I simply fill it with as many cocks as possible.
THIS IS SPARTA!!
My my.. Where’s this at!?
Where is this location and when did it happen?
Holy bejeebers! That is either a successful attempt to dig to China or, well… the title says it all. Would not want to fall down that hole.
Where is this??
Where did this happen at?
Where does it happened and how?
You could use it do dump crap into, we have some useless politicians here in America, its a start.
was this hole man made or did it just apear?
what the hell is this?
i wonder how deep it is
Where is this? That is ridiculous!
looks like someone divided by zero again…
how did that happen?
its the second one in Guatemala, the first one was in 2007
I wouldn’t mind more information about this one. Looks interesting.
wow…i’ve seen stuff like this , except it is in the middle east were a volcano is underground and burst though the surface and created a large pothole type thing that had fire under it
These are two different sinkholes. One from 2010, the other from 2007.
I gotta get that fixed.
Is it man-made. Lord, people. You know what caused this. Mole men.
ifmu dont know where that is..ur a dumfuck
Welcome to Guatemala City
reminds me of a girl I used to know
This is a sinkhole that happened recently in guatemala caused by a bunch of storms. a lot of people died (deaths werent caused by sinkhole).
The sinkhole didnt come from oil pumping like someone said. It happens when water flows underground taking dirt with it. Its a slow process that takes some time. eventually the earth caves in.
Guatemala sinkhole which developed after Tropical Storm Agatha passed through.
Hahaha lol!!! Can’t stop laughing thanks to thath comment
So THAT’S where the reverse vampires hide their flying saucers!
Only the top one is the recent sinkhole.
I’m pretty sure at least one of these is in Argentina. If not Argentina then definitely some other place in Central/South America. It could be Guatemala like someone said.
They’re caused by broken water pipes/mains in the ground that go unnoticed and unrepaired for years. The water soaks into the ground and basically makes it into a quicksand like substance that begins to either disintegrate over time or simply wash away. If it goes on for long enough and a large amount of the dirt gets soaked the ground becomes weak and falls through. It’s especially worse if there are open areas deep below the ground like caverns or a depleted water table.
here is a link to an article on the latest sink hole
If I’m correct that is a sink hole that occurred in Guatemala after it faced a lot of floods.
its a sinkhole in guatemala. basically there was an underground cave and this ground got weak and fell down into the cave.
Daymn right you better had satan boy!
This is from Guatemala and it’s caused by an underground stream of water. The water digs out huge amount of sediments. Eventually the roof of the underground cave will collapse and the result will most often be a hole like this.
so i stumbled this page about 20 minutes ago. then i found this one… http://www.gadgetoz.com/post/guatemala-city-omg-it-looks-like-a-gates-of-hell/ Its the story about the top pic, the most shown of the two above.
for anyone who’s wondering about the pics…try CLICKING THEM
330ft deep in Guatemala City
its in Guatemala!
This is a sinkhole in Honduras resulting from rain and flooding from a tropical storm. Get of the internet and watch the news. Also, I resent the reference to hell because if hell exists, then heaven exists. All this religious mumbo-jumbo is making my head hurt.
its a sink hole in Guatemala i believe as a result of the tropical storm. its not the first sink hole to pop up here. the city is built on limestone caverns and underground caves. ground water erodes theses and creates sink holes.
Was there people inside?
I think they are building a swimming pool
Photoshopped! That cop in the second shot wasn’t there went I went.
[...] clipped from colt-rane.com [...]
Thats pretty bad ass! They should fill it with water with a really high diving board over the edge
If you do a search can easily find where and how. It was a storm that caused the 60m in Guatemala City.
Aint that where the Millenium Falcon hid?
This happened in Guatemala.
That dark shadow at the bottom is water. Sinkholes happen when the water level underground suddenly sinks and the ground above it collapses. Here in Florida, the land is like a big sponge, with little pockets of water everywhere. Sinkholes are common. There was a big one in Winter Park about 25 years ago that resembled this one. I am not sure if this one is related to the tropical storm or if it is just a coincidence.
Third body found in Guatemala sinkhole
February 25, 2007
GUATEMALA CITY — Emergency crews Saturday found a third body in a 330-foot-deep sinkhole that had swallowed a dozen homes and forced the evacuation of nearly 1,000 people in a crowded Guatemala City neighborhood.
The body of Domingo Soyos, 53, was carried out of the enormous fissure and identified by family members, medical crews said.
Soyos was the father of teenagers Irma and David Soyos, whose bodies were found floating in a river of sewage soon after the sinkhole opened Friday.
Residents said there were other people unaccounted for, but emergency crews could not confirm that.
Officials blamed recent rains and an underground sewage flow from a ruptured main for the tragedy. The pit emitted foul odors, loud noises and tremors, shaking the surrounding ground. A rush of water could be heard from its depths, and authorities feared it could widen or other sinkholes could open.
Police evacuated nearby homes and cordoned off a 500-yard perimeter around the crater. Security officials were on guard for possible looters and curious onlookers.
Oh come on! its obvious – Buffy and her crew have been closing hellmouths! (see last episode). Bet there’s one in Cleveland, Ohio
This is a result of the storms in Guatamala. Giant sink holes have appeared, some bigger than intersections.
it’s in guatemala..
these are sinkholes that were created after a tropical storm crossed guatemala on may 31st. the sinkhole is about 200ft deep.
it’s called a sink hole, it happens when underwater currents erode the ground around them and all the ground above that just gives in…this on happened in Guatemala City, Guatemala…just after Tropical Storm Agatha went by and caused damge all over the country and Central America
its in Guatemala city, Guatemala. They say its from the tropical storm that just happened there, but there was also a volcano that erupted about a week ago so that could have caused it too.
its the road to china for sure
The ground was not level when they planed for the city. so the leveled it with large amounts of sediment. A broken water pipe dripping for several years can eroded the sediment causing the above concrete to give away.
It’s a sinkhole in Guatemala City caused by a heavy downpour of rain and an unstable underground sewer system.
Who divided by zero again?
Silver surfer, guaranteed
Zada: This has NOTHING to do with pumping oil. Sinkholes are caused by groundwater flowing and slowly dissolving through limestone rock strata. Apparently the lower strata has been dissolved away enough in that particular area that it collapsed.
For those of you asking, this is a sinkhole – means it’s natural, not manmade (although in this case it may have been sped up or worsened by a broken stormwater drain which explains its coincidence with the storms they were experiencing). It’s in Guatemala and CNN reported that, “The 20-meter (about 66 feet) diameter sinkhole is about 30 meters (about 100 feet) deep.”
It’s in Guatemala: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/world/latin_america/10211104.stm
ma questo è il mio culo!
I knew I shouldn’t have eaten all of that curry….
wow…..thats all i can say….wow..
The first image is from a different place and probably is fake too…
Damn you Desmond! You shouldn’t have pulled the cork on the island! Look what you caused!
This sinkhole is found in Guatemala. The bottom of the sinkhole is irregular and that sewers and water lines may have contributed to the sinkhole’s formation. -cnn
hahahaha!!! it makes me laugh of all your %$/!·$ comments!!! i´m coming for you mortals!!!!!!!!!!
Giorgio; hai un culo enorme!
Sorry, where was this again ?
lol i can the china wall – mart threw there lmasof ..srry bad joke intened lol
wow hey ever one blame it on mario lol the plumer lolol….
lol the evil mole men did it its a invaison lolol
can you tell i love comic books n sci – fi ..
Actually, it’s because of the moleman and his green sidekick giganto.
Time to call the fantastic four!
You dont all have to give your opinion, it’s been explained 3 or 4 times in the above post’s. And B.T.W. they are still lookin for bodies, not a funny time, AHOLES
The worm saw his shadow and says five more years of global warming
You idiots this isnt fake…It was done by a torm. THe ground soil gets soft after years and with a massive building on the top of course it would create a massive whole. Stop being so “technology” freaks. I use photoshop and I can tell you this isnt done by photoshop.
PS: I agree with Issu.
Looks like Sand Worms!!!!!
i wanna kick someone in there while screaming, “this is spartaaaaaaa!”
if youre gonna read news and tell people to get off the internet actually know your facts. its in Guatemala, i actually live here.
so yeah, you failed being “informed” and all.
how deep was it?
I’ve been tinkering with a lot of pirate lairs on ROBLOX, a pretty good building virtual world
Kylee: What do you suppose replaces the oil that is pumped from under ground????? WATER!!! THUS ever increasing movement of water through plates & passages…the MORE movement of water the faster the limestone & other rocks leach/chip away…the more rock that dissolves, the faster the water moves until large CHUNKS give way. (Much the same as bubbles find their way to the surface of concrete or plaster.) AND it is all hastened & increased by the pumping of oil from any location within the reach of running underground waters!
Apparently it’s about 60m deep and 20m across…
There are at least 2 different sink holes pictured here. The hole in the first picture is definitely different from the one in the 6th 7th and 8th
wait, thats real? it looks photoshopped
What is the source for the first picture? It shows a different location than the rest.
Thats the old one… after the last storm a new hole was formed… yeah it sucks
From the picture it seems the other way around, look at the people who are standing there, it doesn’t seem to be two football fields wide,
Great place for a new landfill! LOL
any idea how deep it is or where i could read more about this?
These are actually very common in the Yucatan. In other places they’re called cenotes. I’ve not heard of them opening up like that, but I suppose they have to at some point. There’s a huge one in Southern Mexico that’s very famous for skydiving. It’s at least several hundred feet deep if not deeper.
@anon, Seriously? You can’t stand a reference to religion used as a hyperbole? I suppose you would like a renaming of the planets then since they are all named after Greek Gods?
THIS IS SPARTA !!!!
woww.. if you people DID watch the news It was in Guatemala City, Guatemala and is approximately 66 feet (20 m) wide and 100 feet (30 m) deep. Honduras? asshole, that’s where the tropical storm Agatha is, along with El Salvador and Guatemala.
THIS IS SPARTA!
it’s just a sinkhole but scientists are puzzled on how did an underground cave formed there
Someone said it looked Photoshopped. No it wasn’t, but this was
thats my anus & i love little boys and monkeys!
Guatamalan men are delicious and uncut!
believe or not…
Aliens……………. they are here..
When looking at something so astronomical think of where it may end. Could be never given the condition we’ve created for our world. With constant melting of the world glaciers, water has to go somewhere.
WORLD OF WAR!!!
titans deflowering the earth =)
Hey Gerry from Guatemala: First of all you are full of s**t and obviously don’t know as much as you’d like people to believe about Guatemala. Second of all, you’re a doofluss of epic proportions and need to step off in regards to this issue. I suggest a website more suited to your true interests…perhaps ‘oldladypornisus.com” Have a nice day putz
That’s what happens when you don’t fix those potholes in the road.
Hey Derward, stop being an asshole and insulting people who are leaving their opinions about the post. They are entitled to express their views, and so are you, about the photos. Pick on someone who can look you in the face. (grow a pair)
Its Mother Earths stiletto marks,she,s down to kick some serious butt because were truly fuckin up the planet!!
This reminds me of a Peruvian girl I dated once; Third-world, gaping, and I was scared to see what was at the very bottom.
What happened to the people who were standing there?
They’re CHINA’s problem now
This stuff is scare as hell man i dont even want to imagine something like that happening , like one moment ur cooking urself a nice meal the other moment the groud is swept away from below ur feet :S fascinating but horrible
Lets throw a granade on that locust hole
its earths vagina
It’s not a fuckin gates of hell! It’s a metro hole oppened here in São Paulo – Brasil
The bad construction of govern makes it!
Fail for São Paulo govern!
It’s not a fuckin gates of hell! It’s a metro hole oppened here in São Paulo – Brasil
The bad construction of govern makes it!
Fail for São Paulo govern!!!
why the hell arent there any pix of whats at the bottom of this thing
Silver Surfer… dun dun dunnnn!!
To all who think the other hole are different than the first hole.
They are all the same hole different angles and heights, so it looks different. I know this because i have been to the hole.
Just look at the buildings…
i’ll give someone five dollars to jump in there
it swallowed a three store factory and really real
Look at the third pic. Who has the balls to travel on that sidewalk?
That is by far one of the best photoshops I have seen in my life!
except that it’s NOT a photoshop
its not a photoshop you troll its real look it up, and read the news once in a while
Yah that isn’t photoshop that actually happened. Pick up a newspaper.
Re-DONKEY-U-lous! Boom boom – pow! Y’alls
It is 200+ feet deep in Guatamla city
that was one of the strangest things makes you wonder were to stand or just keep moving around
any one have veges odds on witch is better
YES it happen in Guatemala . I am from Guatemala . and it was because the goverment didnt make the water conducts . That sucks. but what can we do.
Guatemala is where it happened. Here is a link to National Geographic about it http://bit.ly/cYqFkd
eh ma god.! is it connected with the 2012 thing?
Is it possible that this hole does not exist and it is a Photoshop work
this sinkhole is a plumbing problem lol. Water main/sewage line was emptying into the soft clay, eroded it easy, made a big soggy patch of ground. Weight of wet clay adds pressure to other layers of clay beneath, compresses it. Water seeps through the pores in the clay deposit, gets even deeper, but when it reaches solid rock the water begins to pool up. Instead of moving through the clay it washes the deposit away bit by bit, until the weight of whats above it forces through in a very precise shape ^^^(awesome hole)^^^ depending on the width of the clay deposit and the circumfrence of the underwater lake.
@MaydayThis did really happen, as bill said, it’s in Guatemala
I can see that most people are confused at where it came from
Its in Guatamala city, Guatamala
Its estimated size is ~100 feet in diameter and at least 200 feet deep.
@Az8908, The first image is, in fact, of a completely different sinkhole than the others on the page. They are both in the same region!! Just look at the buildings around the hole. It’s obvious. Don’t you remember them saying this is the second one? The soil there is made of a mixture of normal soil, soft clay and pummeled volcanic rock which is susceptible to water erosion. This coupled with the leaking water pipes, sewers, storm drains, and naturally occurring underground water flow cause the sink holes. So it’s no coincidence that they both occurred in the same place.
last one to jump in lives the longest
That’s a big trap! What were they trying to catch?
지옥의 문 구경하세요…
Yes this did happen in Guatemala. Most of my family live there now and unfortunately a 3 story house use to stand there. Also a guard went missing when this happen so it’s been asummed that he fell down the hole.
I’m guessing the Locust Hoard have begun their attack? Man, get Delta Squad out there!
*Gears of War Reference*
I think I dated that hole in high school…
“is it manmade?”…. what kind of question is that? YES they dug a gigantic hole in the ground in the middle of an intersection and through the side of a building…. BRILLIANT!
Its called a sinkhole and it’s caused by water running or flowing underground and wearing away the soil. There are infinite stories in Florida of homes and/or streets being swallowed up by these things. This is by far, however, the biggest one I’ve EVER seen…
guatemala city. i was born in that city too. thats so freaky.
It is death calling us all, for the raping of mother earth
…and that is why obesity is a serious threat to society, and the Earth’s surface.
all the Stupid people who wrote something Stupid about this needs to jump in this hole
hey, what’s that smell?!!??? earth, did you cut the cheese again?
It happened at the end of may sometime in Guatemala
its in chili just happend recently god damn does anybody read the news
Seen this long ago. I think I read somewhere that it happened after a big storm and underground rivers washed it away or something. Scary shit.
Is this the same hole? First reported in 2007 http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSN2333586020070223
Giant hole found… the police are looking into it.
Sorry – old joke
i believe this is Guatemala.
Holy crap! E-Day is upon us! Get the Lancers!
Oh wait, someone already did the Gears reference.
Guatemalan sinkhole its only about 400 feet deep dummies
@alice who are you cause my friend wants to meet you
wow, this is just too incredible
ITS THE LOCUST HIVE! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES! DEPLOY THE RESONATOR!
photoshops kwl hwy
photoshops kwl hey
This SINKHOLE is in Guatemala – happened in May/June 2010.
And this is the second time that Guatemala has experienced ‘sinkhole’, first being in 2007.
I am a bedbug and I find this rude.
THIS IS SPARTAAAA!!!
Alice you just made my day the doctor should deffinetly come fix stuff
does this remind anyone of Gears of War or is that just me?
This hole is en Guatemala….
It was made by really bad underground water system that been leaking for YEARS and YEARS, which eventually started to rot from the bottom up, hincing the huge empty whole all of a sudden
Christ on a bike.
shit a brick.
Shit the bed.
Oh and Fuck a duck lol
reminds me of my current girlfriend. Heywood, grow some balls
why don’t the buildings in the first pic match any of the buildings in the other pics? and what corner sidewalk are those two cops perched on? Look at the first pic and try to find that corner sidewalk. or that big white building with the roof that looks like a grand piano… not in the first pic. are there more of these holes than just one?
3. Guatemala City
Residents of a Guatemala City heard strange rumblings for weeks but weren’t sure what was happening beneath them. Then, in late February 2007, a near-perfect circle of earth dropped some 30 stories almost instantly. It’s amazing how neat the hole is. Two people died and over 1,000 had to be evacuated; the sinkhole resulted from a corroded sewage system deep beneath the surface (apparently the odor coming from the hole was intolerable).
for all you people wondering what it is, its a sinkhole. all that rock under the ground that you see in the pics is limestone which is very quickly eroded by acid rain. so the rain leaked down into the rocks and slowly made this huge hole and then finally the ground above it collapsed
I could easily plug that gap with just one of my mighty testicals.
This is my hole. It was made for me!
doctor who. the countdown begins.
Clearly shopped, I’ve seen some wholes in my time, and these pixels are from the shop, for sure.
omg its war of the worlds all over again
Pretty fucked up that there no fence built arround it
Hey harry, shut your fucking rookie mouth. The sinkhole in guatamala is old news, and clearly not photoshopped.
You people are the worst kinds of retards.
Clearly not „shopped“. Neither a „sinkhole“. More to read: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guatemala_City#Piping_Pseudokarst
really, you should believe everything you see on the internet.
Its a sinkhole in Guatemala caused by flooding and underground caverns/mines
its a glory hole. no joke it is geological
You folks really do live in the world’s asshole.
what a big hole.. and kinda like bulls eye too, right in the middle of a cities/town.
how come there was no news about this? or there is? anyway, with a hole this big at least half of the world knows about it.
wonder what’s down there.. it seems doctor “who” doing some achoooo!! and a big one too..
finally a hole my dick can fit into…
yeah, Its in Guatemala City and it just happened, like out of nowhere, i think there was a building there. it´s a sinkhole.
its in guatemala
30 stories deep
its a sink hole formed by alot of storms in guatemala, and it finally collapsed.
yes! i live near there!maybe 7 or 8 blocks, unfortunately a person died there, but actually the government it’s working on it!
E-Day is finally here……….we are so fucked
the hole happened in 2010 in guatemala, my wife decided to remodel our kitchen so we build a sky light
What it did, there is probably a cavern system underneath the city where this is taken, and they had a monsoonish type rain early before, so it created a giant sinkhole, leading to the cavern. either that, or these photos are faked, my guess is the last
WOW!! That looks really weird! Curious what is down there.
This hole is in Guatemala City, Guatemala. This is not a supernatural thing of any kind, this hole was made because of a flaw of construction in the sewers beneath this houses.
this is obviously man made….the marks on the side are a clear indication of this…
Its in like Cambodia or something, its a giant sinkhole
fucking dugtrio man, so overpowered
Did somebody call 9-1-HOLY SHIT!
yup, real, it happened in my country
Lasers from space did it! Nuff said
Yo’ mama so fat.. You can figure out the rest.
This is located at Guatemala city.
I’m sorry guys, my fault.
Totally reminds me of Gears of War….A lot of Horde are going to come out of it soon.
THIS IS SPARTA!!!!!
If you guys weren’t retarded, you’d click on the first picture which will explain what this is and where it is. Stop asking on the comments, most people on the internet are just as dumb as you.
I actually am studying to be a Geologist, and it’s pretty clear this is just a huge sinkhole. Impressive, to say the least.
this is all fault of Alvaro Arzu, the worst mayor Guatemala city could get… the worst part is that all my fellow citizens are incredibly stupid and they keep voting for that great idiot that does nothing for the city or country…
I’m so glad I read through all these comments
I seriously doubt this is real. I think it’s photoshoped
Guatemala. Sinkholes frequently occur there and are caused by water erosion. Look up the Lighthouse Reef too!
Someone was trying to find some diamond to build a pickaxe but the diamon is rare, so they probably only found reddust and coal
That’s a motherfucking giant-ass sinkhole.
