Sinkhole.

Or... Cthulhu's minions stir.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

Not a sinkhole -- it has a debris field around it. It blew outward.

(As the article discusses, it's either some weird ice thing, or a salt something somethign  deposit explosion.)

Yeah, I read that they think it was some kind of natural chemical explosion.

That said, this is textbook "first ten minutes of a horror movie" stuff.

The science team on scene posted a video today. It was probably a methane explosion (due to global warming, yadda yadda...).

We have threads for UFOs, serial killers, and crypto shit, but I felt the sphincter clenching nature of this one deserved its own new thread.

Just click the link, read the article, and watch the video. Make sure the lights are on.

Nothing new here... But everytime this story pops up I get chills:

You've been gone! I had to post for both of us.

The Lam story is getting a movie:

http://deadline.com/tag/the-bringing/

http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2014/02/27/elisa-lam-movie-the-bringing_n_4869528.html

So Netflix did a crime Scene Investigation four part special documentary on Elisa Lam (and the Hotel Cecil in general). It's a fascinating history of the hotel, and deep dives into Lam's life. The result is an interesting (and timely) expose on gentrification, depression, cyber-bullying, police failures, and superstition.

Well worth the watch. It is super creepy at first but, then, they actually piece together the facts and the "twist" ending sort of dispels the spookiness of the whole thing.
