I recently came across a link in a friend’s FB feed (thanks, Ravi!) to a post on CrookedBrains about gigantic holes in the earth. I had never heard of CrookedBrains before, but it appears to be a bunch of posts with “15 Most…” or “12 Best…” or “30 Cool…” lists. There’s lots to get lost in on there.
Anyway. To give you an idea of some of the holes we’re talking about, here’s a taste:

That sinkhole was from 2007, and apparently in 2010 another one appeared:

How crazy is that?!
