HUGE Sinkhole in Philippines Found

I received this email from a friend in Aussie right after I posted a link about the Guatemala sinkhole.
Filipinos are the best! hahah! upssss. 

8 Amazing Holes!
These holes are not only amazing, but some of these are really terrifying - especially #8! The sheer scale of these holes reminds you of just how tiny you are.

1. Kimberley Big Hole , South Africa

 Apparently the largest ever hand-dug excavation in the world,
this 1097 meter deep mine yielded over 3 tons of diamonds
before being closed in 1914.

2. Glory Hole , Monticello Dam, CA 

A glory hole is used when a dam is at full capacity and water needs to be drained from the reservoir.

This is the 'Glory Hole' at Monticello dam,
and it's the largest in the world of this type
of spillway, its size enabling it to consume
14,400 cubic feet of water every second.

3. Bingham Canyon Mine, Utah

 This is supposedly the largest man-made
excavation on earth. Extraction began in 1863 and still continues today, the pit is increasing in size constantly. In its current state the hole is

75 miles deep and 2.5 miles wide.

4. Great Blue Hole , Belize
  This incredible geographical phenomenon known as a
blue hole is situated 60 miles off the mainland of Belize 
There are numerous blue holes around the world,
but none as stunning as this one.

5. Mirny Diamond Mine , Serbia
I'm pretty sure most people have seen this one.
It's an absolute beast and holds the title of largest
open diamond mines in the world. A t 525 meters
deep, with a top diameter of 1200 meters, there's
even a no-fly zone above the hole due to a few 
helicopters having been sucked in.

6. Diavik Mine , Canada

The mine is so huge and the area so remote
that it has its own airport with a runway large
enough to accommodate a Boeing 737.
It looks equally cool when the surrounding
water is frozen.

7. Sinkhole in Guatemala
These photos are of a sinkhole that occurred
early this year in Guatemala . The hole swallowed
a dozen homes and killed at least 3 people..

8. And the really terrifying one?
This is the famous Malacanang Palace 'Rat Hole' that you have heard about where there are many A_ _holes. It is capable of swallowing trillions and trillions of Pesos... Annually! Never to be heard from again.



  1. Hahahaha. I was dead serious before I read #8 then I just went totally crazy.

  2. wew
    nvr knew of the last one but nice

  3. Bingham Canyon Mine 75 miles deep???? haha. no one reaches 75 miles deep and into the earth's outer mantle.

    0.75 miles or 3/4 of a mile should be the right words here

  4. i totally agree with #8... it's actually more like a black hole.

  5. I think I know where you got the idea on this post. Here:

    You just changed no. 8. LOL

  6. LMAO...I could die laughing on #8! Talagang di pahuhuli ang Pinoy pagdating sa World Records.
