TOTALLY! Are these people NUTS?

Father of the year goes to the dude with the two kids towards the end of the OP's video... i'm sure his wife would verbally (if not physically) assault him if she saw this video and her kids that close to that bottomless pit!

hear the sound coming from it? Like a hum. Would love to see how far down it goes....


It's not actually coming from it, if I am reading the video description correctly.


Background sound is not original.


Now, I would probably go up to the edge for a bit, but I would be nervous as can be. No way would I let my kids any where near it though!

This is truly an interesting hole because it doesn't look like other sinkholes.

Imagine a tunnel for worm or snake into the earth. The spherical opening looks slight mechanical though.

Not sure if this has been thrown out there yet, but maybe a BunkerBuster of some sort that malfunctioned. then finding itself at the undesigneded area.. Or. lets think crazy. An alien probe, Doing the samething NASA does, gathing data on the planet. I lean towards the first of my theories. lol, eitherway they should get a crane out there and send a camera down. I'm thinking it would have to be farely old to be able to stand that close without the edges giving out. So no water seems odd. Maybe sandy and quickly absorbed. Maybe a underwater source, like a river or ancient lake, caused the sinkhole.

Thats NOT NORMAL. Why. because if it were an impact, everything away from it would be pushed away and there would be no hole like that. If water did this, then there would be a drop off like in the video, but there is an upheaval. This tells me that something came out of the ground and forced it's way up. Why. The outer ring and the inner ring. Take some soil and barry your hand, now push up on it slowly then just before you get to the top give it a yank. Look at the soil.

I smell Something fishy. Look at the vid when he points the camera across the hole. It sinks a bit then it goes up. Also note that you see like an area where something on one side pushed it's way out. Someone should tie a flashlight and a camera together with a rope and lower it down as far as they can. I wonder whats down there. Something came out of this hole, thats for sure. I would put a wager on that one.

Hi,

Neat phenomena.

Re. Mels Hole. All of the Mels Hole coast shows are there on youtube if you google it. IMHO - The Mels Hole coast shows got more and more far fetched until I PUKED - utter BUNKUM! Don't waste your time listening people unless you specfically want to spend hours testing your BULL# METERS!

Let's see:
6 months to a year later, local residents are STILL driving out to look at the hole.

That tells me that there really IS NOT much by way of entertainment for the local population to distract themselves.

Highlight of the week - "Hey, let's go look at the hole".

Since everyone is so bored, and there's not much to do around town other than go look at the hole, such that they've built up a car park, and even a year later people are still going to see the hole, as if anything has changed, I'm going to hazard a guess that someone has taken that one extra step and investigated where the hole goes to, if anywhere.

That fact that we don't hear anything about where the hole goes, or how deep it is means that these residents of this really super boring place on the planet where all there really seems there is to do for entertainment is go look at a hole in the ground, have found nothing of consequence.

It's a hole. Nothing else happens in this really boring place on the planet, so, here's the hole again, a year later, and we're still coming to look at it.

Big news if you're a local, but, for us, I'm betting money it's a hole, and nothing but a hole.

It looked as though there was a horizontal section further down in the hole, like an upside down 'T' which makes me think that it may have been subsidence as a result of water running through, which may have created the sinkhole in the harder compacted earth (the 'tube' section) and the funnel section at the top is probably the result of looser packed earth slowly slipping in, if you look at the earlier vids the gradient of the funnel part (at the top) is much steeper.

So yeah, subsidence cause by water which could easily be from irrigation seeping down through a denser or rockier subsurface and finding a more porous section to run through. With the funnel caused by slow collapse around the edges... as for the 'Rim' around the top on the surface well most of it appears to have been caused by foot traffic around the edge as in the earlier vid it is not present around most of the hole, also in the earlier vid there is a slight furrow towards the camera right that you may notice that looks just like it was caused by water running into the hole.

The fact that it is not full of water supports my theory as it would require running water that is flowing off somewhere else to cause the subsidence in the first place.

Looking at a hole is better than looking at half a hole.
It kills (roughly) twice as much time.
You gotta be thankful for small mercies.

Stop talking down the hole. Leave the hole alone!
You are talking out your hole.

And yes we will be back next year for hole alone 2.
Apparently you can see our hole from space.

Now you have learned the hole story.

P.S. We have already started our 'Come see our fun hole' advertising campaign
and hopefully it will generate revenue and bring people into the area..

Remember when Mel started going on about how he found some coins with "impossible" minting dates on them, so he accredited it to some bizzare phenomenon originating from the hole? Man, I wish I could have Art Bell's job, just talking to crazies all day and getting paid for it

Remember when Mel claimed some monkey like alien hybrid crawled back up the rope he had sent down.....that's when the whole Mel's Hole story started going off into deep lala land for me....Still loved hearing about it on the Art Bell show though.

Sure do miss the old AB show....

Short story is that Mel Waters found an apparently bottomless hole on his property in washinton state.

People threw all kind of trash in it for years, and it never filled up.

Some other person made a community that looked for mels hole and other holes in washington for several years, they found nothing and gave up last year.

It would be easier just to go listen to the multiple interviews for yourself. I dunno where you can find them these days, but it is an interesting way to kill five hours. Just when you think his story is getting boring, he'll through in some new level of BS that always tips the scales.

For instance after all the claims he made, he then said that the US government came and confiscated the part of his land where the hole was so nobody can ever find it again

Maybe it's just my sick sense of humor but,
Am I the only one who couldn't resist walking behind one of those guys and "accidentally" bumping into one of them?



That would be priceless.

What a great place to take the wife!

Ex-wife.

Reminds me a little of the 'Doorway to Hell' in Turkmenistan...

www.youtube.com...

Obviously without the fire blazing away but scary looking over the edge of a sinkhole.......

Does anyone else feel like they want to jump into it ??
