I believe that ignorance really must be bliss.
It seems like the more I learn about, the more things I can add to my arsenal of “maybe I should worry about that?” lists.
Now here’s a video of a sinkhole in action.
Now, I don’t live in a swamp. I don’t think I even live very close to a swamp. There’s some funky ponds around here but that’s about as close to a swamp as we get.
But if it can happen there, it can happen anywhere.
So next time I’m talking insurance with my agent, I should maybe ask her something like, “OK…no floods. I’ll cross that off my list….but let me ask you this….HOW ABOUT SINKHOLES?!!!”
This scene of the trees getting sucked down into the swamp was pretty bad.
It was kind of scary to see those big trees disappear like that.
Check this out if you want to see something really scary….
That was pretty scary and gross. Maybe you shouldn’t watch Richard Dreyfuss fall into the water and get eaten by the piranhas. It’s pretty gross.
I think it was a pretty dramatic sinkhole, though.
I don’t know…there’s always going to be something new to worry about. And if it isn’t really new, it might be a slightly new twist on an old theme…like maybe the clown will be wearing a slightly orange nose instead of a red one.
Just when we get over our fear of clowns, up pops a new one with a new nose and a new attitude.
It could be pretty scary.
This sinkhole thing is pretty weird.
I blame FRACKING.
