Update 2: Arizona highway 'sinkhole' is actually a whole mountain coming apart!

The giant fissure in the ground swallowed two cars in Page, Arizona, and caused 120 feet of highway to sink over 8 feet. But geologists are now also worried that the road may be irreparable for a long time because it appears that the whole side of the mountain is sinking!

It's a landslide...

...I teach geology at a college and this is a typical landslide. There are dozens of them along California's Pacific Coast Highway, some creeping slowly and others moving at deadly speeds.

It's all a part of the natural process we geologists call mass-wasting.

Think it's time

we start considering how things on this earth are interrelated and whether these are examples of the butterfly effect, perhaps contributed to by our own actions?

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.

still cant happen here unless you count the colorado river as a sea.

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.
