    This is not man-made at all.

    Created entirely via a tropical storm in Guatemala. The high resolution picture is here.

      The one in the picture may not be man-made, but I have been told that over a 13 year period a Scotsman from the Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath area managed to dig a similar artifice in the vicinity of numbers 11 and 10 Downing Street. The one in London is larger, deeper and blacker than the one in Guatemala and appears to have had a more devastating impact on the surrounding environment.

      Pfft. My girlfriend’s hole is much bigger. Although that was man-made. And large root-vegetable made. And jedi light sabre vibrator made. So you see, there are always other natural and unnatural factors other than just Man at fault.

      That is some crazy shit! (Not Kismet’s post the photo) :D

      Photoshopped without a doubt …

      God that’s weird. It’s like something out of a disaster/horror film.

      P Diddy,

      No. It’s clearly real. Just wierd. No Silurians, no Silver Surfer, no Old Ones. Just geology at work. Stranger than fiction.

      “This is not man-made at all”

      In fact, impermeable concrete on the surface and sewage systems underground probably played an important part in the hole’s development.

      Also possibility of acid rain increasing the erosion.

    9. douglas clark — on 2nd June, 2010 at 8:29 pm  

      Bloody hell!

      I don’t know about you guys but that sort of geological stuff seems, just weird. Are there examples of this happening before? Don? Are you there Don?

      I can’t believe you got away with that Kismet Hardy.

      I thought you were going to get well spanked.

      umm…shouldn’t they put some traffic cones around that or something?!
