What's a "sinkole"?
A deep hole being formed on the ground, as you can see on the picture in the link. It can be due to landslide.

Never seen a sinkhole like that. Wow.
It is apparently 30 meters deep. It has happened in Guatemala before, some sources say. I think this is the largest one so far.

I just read that it is due to big amounts of calcite under the ground, which dissolved by being in contact with water. Large amounts of water went under the ground after this tropical storm in Guatemala.

It looks fake, but apparently isn't.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

That just sucks. There was something similar that happened in Quebec not too long ago, except instead of being deep, it was fairly shallow but spread over a huge area, apparently a kilometre long and half a kilometre wide.

It's a hoax just like 9/11

You can clearly see the demotion marks. Now, they'll clearly use this as a logical excuse to invade San Salvador!
