Giant sinkhole in Guatemala looks as if it goes to centre of the Earth
Nationalpost.com ^ | May 31, 2010 | Daniel Kaszor

Posted on 06/01/2010 9:20:41 AM PDT by AngelesCrestHighway

The sinkhole is a result of rainwater saturating the ground after tropical storm Agatha. The image is not a photoshop-job (see other angles of the sinkhole below) despite looking as if a giant hole had been punched in the Earth.

Back in the day they would simply wrap a virgin in gold jewelry and push her in. Made perfectly good sense to the people who invented the long count calendar.

Holy crap is right! That seems to go right into an underground river or something that it can drain into.

Not gonna be easy to make that whole again, even with reinforcing the area, there is more "down" down there that can open up. Wonder how the neighbors to that hole feel?

I’m not sure if that’s water at the bottom or it opens up into a larger chamber....

I’d be more worried about lava coming out of the hole after the recent eruption down there.

I think the larger chamber is the Lincoln bedroom with Obama in it or hell.

That is wild. Hubby and I wondered if all the oil coming out created a void somewhere else - could that be what we’re seeing?

Here's a FR thread form 2007 about a Guatemalan sink hole. I these 2 holes are in different locations. Exactly what the hell is going on under this place?

If it were in Mexico and started last month it could be called a Sink-Hole de Mayo.

That aint no sinkhole...

That's a tunnel to the U.S., probably comes up behind the welfare office in Phoenix.
