Did you see the guy in the states the other day died when a sink-hole opened up under his bedroom?

I think they've given up trying to locate his body (true story).

To think that one can go in the middle of sleep, falling into a pit. Quite sad. Wonder if that's how early civilizations got the idea that hell is below ground and heaven above.

Sydney's Eastern suburbs seemed to have its fair share of land erosion too. I recall there's been two major episodes where roads caved away in the rain in recent years.
