Our TN sinkholes are nothing compared to this giant portal to Hell

I know we’ve had our fair share of random sinkholes recently here in middle TN, but geez, look at this one that opened up in Guatemala City over the weekend!

Giant sinkhole in Guatemala City

“Satan, are you down there? This is a giant-ass sinkhole in Guatemala City that appeared over the weekend after tropical storm Agatha (whore! You're no Cristie) battered Central America with rain.

DOWNPOURS caused by tropical storm Agatha have created a giant sinkhole in Guatemala City, while throughout the country officials have reported 120 people dead and at least 53 missing.

The sinkhole, which formed in the northern part of the capital city, swallowed up a space larger than the area of a street intersection.

Residents said a three-storey building and a house fell into the hole. The residents blamed a poor sewerage system for the sinkhole.”

The Gulf Oil Spill: It’s Much Worse Than You Think

The media and big oil lobbies want you to believe that the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico isn’t all that bad.

Wrong.

Check out this helpful image to learn the truth of the massive spill:

The Guardian says that the spill is easily on track to dump the equivalent of  300,000+ barrels of oil into the ocean. That’s considerably worse than the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill that spilled 258,000 barrels worth.

Now you know….and knowing is half the battle. Yo Joe.
