Mysterious giant hole suddenly appears in Siberia
Yahoo News ^ | 07/16/14 | Omar Kardoudi

A mysterious giant hole and crater have suddenly appeared in Siberia, Russia. There are not many details right now, but the video captured from a helicopter shows a weird configuration with debris and signs of combustion around it. Was it an explosion, an impact, or some violent drilling?

No. I don’t want to associate “violent drilling” with her.

What difference does it really make at this point? A hole is a hole.

It would require considerable violence to get me to do any drilling there, so much so that it may well be technically impossible.

“Anna Kurchatova from Sub-Arctic Scientific Research Centre thinks the crater was formed by a water, salt and gas mixture igniting an underground explosion, the result of global warming.”

Mystery solved.

I don’t know its origin either...

but there are many pictures and animated gifs whose origin over time is becoming unknown.... I’ve wondered about the Hillary! jpeg where she looks like she just ate a bushel of limes.

“the result of global warming”

Yea, right. Are you sure it wasn’t the Koch brothers or George Bush?

I seem to remember that animated GIF with the people walking into a hole being part of some commercial from the late 1990s.

The sides of the hole are very clean and smooth from outward appearances. A nuke test would create a cavern then a collapse. The appearance would be more of a classic crater. This site has pictures

Looks like it was a Wendy’s commercial from 2007. I was only off by ten years give or take :-).

The cave-in was caused by a program of hydraulic fracturing for recovery of petroleum and natural gas gone wrong....

Check NSGS and similar world-wide seismic monitoring agencies for reports about an event near the site.

I had to look that one up in Wikipedia:

Waters claimed to have measured the hole's depth to be more than 15 miles (24 kilometers) by using fishing line and a weight.

Reminds me of the mysterious holes that appeared in the remake of the Prisoner, with Jim Caviezel. Just watched it the other week. They appeared because their world which was an illusion, was falling apart.

Maybe that hole is where Benghazi h klintoon stashed the $6,000,000,000.00 that was “lost” (according to the IG) while she was the incompetent Secretary of State. It has to be somewhere.

You gotta admit it takes some talent to do a 3 hour show about a hole.
