I wonder how they'll fix that pothole.

Mysterious Massive Sinkhole in Chile Ranks Among Deepest.

Currently at 32 metres in diameter and 200 metres deep it'll take a lot of filling. :-O

Cheers.

It's owned by a Canadian mining company. They will just build a pipeline and fill it with oil sand.

You would hope they both tried to go under at the same time, but it wouldn't surprise me if one got stuck, and anther one came along and thought they could make it...
I have to say in their defence though, the height markings are pretty crap.

If that vehicle was here I could see a lot of massive fines happening.

A possible drag race?

Was the driver of the vehicle in https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=85706&postid=2104504 distracted when one of the phones in https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=85706&postid=2104503 rang?

We have something similar over at one of my Olde 'local' pubs...

... Backed up with an old mobile phone impaled with a 6" nail prominently in the centre of one wall as you walk in...


You actually get to talk to random people in person!

All good fun!

This thief may have got more than they bargained for.

Launceston thief who scooped coins from monkey enclosure pond 'now at risk of herpes'.

A person who stole coins from a pond inside a monkey enclosure could be exposed to the potentially deadly herpes B virus...
I wonder if they could read the warning signs.

Cheers.

It was certainly a blast. :-O

Want some SPAM with that?
Burger King just sent spam receipts to customers
Updated at 10:40 PM UTC August 9th Burger King has sent us the following statement:
We are aware of the issue, which was the result of an internal processing error.

We've asked for the company to offer some fries with that - sorry, offer a specific response to our questions about security and privacy.
We will update this story if we receive a substantive response.
