Guatemala City is growing it’s own Sarlacc Pit
It’s starting with the pit first, which doesn’t seem to be the best route for attracting such a creature to our planet. They aren’t exactly the first stop for most tourists.
Attempting to attract the sarlacci (or space traveling spores) by creating a large pit for them to roost in just seems a little self-destructive to us.
This hole, currently believed to be void of any sarlacci, has already eaten a three-story building and fortunately, as far a we know, no people yet. Good thing, too. It would take an agonizing thousand years to be digested.View my Flipboard Magazine.
Update: We have a continuing interest in sinkholes. They play a major role in a short story I’m writing, so I’ve been collecting other articles and posts in a Flipboard.com magazine.
