What do you do about something like this!
This is a sinkhole that opened up in Guatemala. They are estimating it to be over 30 stories deep.
It has all ready eaten a three story building and a house. And as you can see it is right in the middle of town.
Do you try to fill that up? How the hell much stuff would you have to put in there before it got full? Do you leave it alone? If you do does it eat the neighborhood one building at a time as it gets bigger. And it sure looks like it would get bigger.
If you work in the building next to the sinkhole do you continue to go to work? Do you work in fear of being swallowed?
Do you build some kind of concrete cover for it knowing that the ground underneath is gone? Could be eroding as you stand there.
I find it incredibly interesting that these extremely large sinkholes seem to be popping up everywhere.
