    I've "met" a couple of sinkholes, but never one in the ground.

    Sink holes are created when the soil is loose. So they obviously move towards the earth's core. I think this is it :D

    Its only a matter of time before the whole world falls into a sink hole to be never seen again.

    This is a direct result in the ever famous
    "the country is going down the tubes"

    BTW, most of those picts are as fake and 75% of BHW's members total worldwide website view count is. :sad:

    edit:

    why are they called sink holes anyway?

    they should be called "Holy Fkn Jesus Christ, look at the size of that fker"

    "sink hole" is a huge understatement, specially when the whole states supply of sinks can fit into that hole.

    Sinkholes are interesting, but who knows what's the real cause behind them. There's all sorts of crazy shit going on.

    I do.

    Underneath us we have rock, water, sand/rock/dirt, rock and more dirt and rocks. The water is distributed between caverns of water like underground caves and sand or porous rock that absorbs the water. It is under pressure. The rock can be broken up big rocks or rocks with lots of holes through them like natural sponges.

    At some point below us there is an impermeable layer of rock. Rainwater, ponds, streams, all that stuff is in the top and deep water is below that layer. Mixed with rocks and sand (which is just little rocks).

    Some of the water below that impermeable layer has been there since BEFORE THE ICE AGE. We drill down and suck it up anyway. Suckity-suck-suck-suck with no regard for any consequences.

    The deep underground water is arranged in aquifers which are like underground lakes. Through rock and sand but like that. And they can get really massive and go hundreds of miles underground. To this day there is no real understanding of the connections between aquifers and certainly no maps. And no understanding how or if the really deep ones are re-charged. Rainwater and other surface water can't reach them.

    People dig deep wells and remove the water. People dig shallow wells when the water above that layer is accessible. When we poison and use up the easy water we dig deeper and deeper. And deeper.

    Over the decades we suck out so much lower water from so many areas that the water level in the aquifers drops. I mean, really drops. People's wells go dry, they go deeper, and it continues. eventually so much water is removed that it makes the ground up on the surface unstable.

    For decades people remove millions of gallons a year or a month from multiple locations. the water level goes down. the ground starts to settle because it has no support. Eventually breaks come through the surface.

    that is your sinkhole. Sure fracking can cause it what with the sucking massive amts of liquid out if the ground and injecting millions of gallons of whatnot. But traditionally it was over-use of deep wells. The sinkholes can be close or far from the majority of wells.

    You read about them in places like Texas and Florida because they have very soft sandy top-parts so there is less support when the water levels drop. And they have so little water that they have to go very deep to get it. In the northeast the basic structure is very rocky and hard: less likely for chunks to slip down into gaping openings, less likely for the ground to settle down anyway. Also there is so much easily available relatively clean water in the northeast, deep wells aren't the first resort like they are in Florida and Texas.

    dauffers already wrote the answer.Its fracking a cheap solution to gain access to gas and oil which is leaving big holes once the oil or gas is taken out

    Thsi is why I love BHW, we get to learn SEO, science, how to pick up girls, etc etc etc.

    They should actually start a school in reference to this board.
    If its not discussed here, it doesn't need to known nor matters.

    I have great ideas about the schools dress code.

    A black Hat is mandatory all else is optional...
    wanted a much better pic, but just imagine no watermark and her being the teacher :p

    And another thing!!!

    It gets worse.

    Remember that drunken rampage the Bush twins took through Argentina back in 2006? They were asked to leave the country. The official story was that they were there to cerebrate their birthday(s).

    U.S. Embassy Asks Bush Twins to Leave Country - ABC News - Nov 27, 2006


    It was no b-day whirl. They were there to finalize a major purchase for the Family. the bought 99,000 acres in Paraguay, directly over the largest known freshwater aquifer on the planet. that aquifer could supply water to 6 billion people for 200 years. And now the b's own it.

    Guarani Aquifer. Check it out.

    whats fked up is that big shot businesses pollute the fk out of everything, a
    nd once our planet becomes a waste land, the people will be the ones being forced to ration what little water is left while the big shots keep right on fkin it up.

    Its screwed up that those in charge know damn well we are running out of everything, including places to put our garbage and nothing will be done until its too late.

    Did you know that North Eastern States like New York, Connecticut, Mass etc, have no where to put their wastes and its shipped in semi trailers to states like Ohio and put in our land fills?

    I used to haul it, yah, its fked up.
    And again, once the whole world is completely in shambles, the people will be left holding the bag and severally over paying for common things that should be free, like drinking water while the big shots sit in their billion dollar offices counting their money and having their limo washed three times a day.
