WOW, what a hole

Amazing Holes!

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. It 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.

Shit HOLE, Washington D.C.
It is capable of swallowing trillions and trillions of U.S. Dollars-annually! The money that falls into this hole is never heard from again!  It is reputed to be filled with at least 535 ass 'holes'.
