    1) Kimberley Big Hole - South Africa

    http://i33.tinypic.com/13yhr81.jpg

    Apparently the largest ever hand-dug excavation in the world,
    this 1097 meter deep mine yielded over 3 tons of diamonds
    before being closed in 1914.



    2) 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

    This is the 'Glory Hole' at Monticello dam, and it's the largest in the world
    of this type of spillway, its size enabling it to consume
    14,400 cubic feet of water every second.



    3) Bingham Canyon Mine, Utah

    http://i34.tinypic.com/vfa1ok.jpg

    This is supposedly the largest man-made excavation on earth. Extraction
    began in 1863 and still continues today, the pit increasing i n size
    constantly. In its current state the hole is ¾ miles deep and 2.5 miles wide..



    4) 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.

    5) Mirny Diamond Mine , Serbia

    http://i35.tinypic.com/5f50zm.jpg

    I'm pretty sure most people have seen this one. It's an absolute
    beast and holds the title of largest open diamond mines in the world.



    6) Diavik Mine , Canada

    http://i37.tinypic.com/28h0eap.jpg

    The mine is so huge and the area so remote that it has
    its own airport with a runway large enough to accommodate a Boeing 737.
    It looks equally cool when the surrounding water is frozen.



    7) Sinkhole in Guatemala

    http://i37.tinypic.com/dn0y29.jpg

    These photos are of a sinkhole that occurred
    early this year in Guatemala . The hole swallowed
    a dozen homes and killed at least 3 people.


    And the really terrifying one?

    This is the famous A***HOLE that you are probably all familiar with. It is
    capable of throwing out tons of manure daily and, in just over 12 months,
    has succeeded in sucking this country into the biggest financial hole it
    has experienced in decades
