Sinkhole!

Like something out of a Charles Fort compendium, a huge sinkhole opened under the bedroom of a Florida man on March 1, effectively swallowing the entire room and everything – and everyone – in it. The family responded when it sounded like a car had crashed into the back of the house. Check out the video:

    Could this thing be any more weird?
    a sinkhole opens up under a bed and swallows an occupant named Bush
    the hole is so big that they can’t find Bush
    but it’s not big enough to swallow the house
    and at the end of the day
    it takes yer attention away from the fact
    that your civil rights have disappeared in a sinkhole too

  3. A lot of weird stuff going on here. No actual photos/footage of the hole? And 30′ wide?! That must’ve been one big ass bedroom! The crying brother isnt very convincing either and the best part is theyre just ripping the house down to fix it. “Thats it folks, we tore the house down and the hole disappeared. No need to worry, just get 100ft away and your good… LOL

  5. Bogus. Floor boards would hold up. If it was a slab, rebar would hold up. Whole house would fall in or just be perched over it. A bed falling in sounds like the Simpsons movie.

    I’ve decided that’s how I wana go now. DEATH BY SINK HOLE.

  7. Nice to see all the comments y’all. We’re recording another Coincidence Control Network (http://sittingnow.co.uk/category/podcasts/ccn/) episode tomorrow and this is on the agenda. If we get around to discussing it I’ll be sure to give y’all and these thoughts a shout out! On the one hand, its odd that there is so little footage of the actual hole accompanying these reports. On the other, as a person living in the South, I can assure you that massive bizarre sinkhole accidents happen all the time. They’re just not usually so damn precise-seeming.

  9. Also, it seems another sinkhole has opened about 2 miles from this one. Coincidence? Nature? http://www.wtsp.com/news/topstories/article/302137/250/Another-sinkhole-opens-up-in-Seffner

  10. This one is in Louisiana, but it’s full of toxic chemicals. Folks are worried that it could eventually create a massive explosion that might create earthquakes on the New Madrid fault line. http://www.forbes.com/sites/williampentland/2013/03/03/toxic-sinkhole-threatens-southeastern-louisiana/
