The Devil and Congress Made Me Do It...

These holes are not only amazing, but  some are really terrifying! The sheer scale of these holes  reminds you of just how tiny we are.




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.


Glory Hole - Monticello Dam,  California

A glory hole is used when a dam is at  full capacity and water needs to be drained from the reservoir.  It is the largest spillway of this type in the world and  consumes 14,400 cubic feet of water every  second.

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.

 Sinkhole in  Guatemala
This photo is of a sinkhole that  occurred in Guatemala. The hole swallowed 2 dozen homes and  killed at least 3 people.

SHIT HOLE, Washington  D.C.
This hole swallows trillions and  trillions of U.S. Dollars annually!
The money that falls  into this hole is never heard from again, nor do we see any good  come from it.
