As if the Earth was mocking human ambition, a series of sinkholes appeared near a new Korean tower.
When it's finished in 2016, the Lotte World Tower will reach more than 1,800 feet. But unfortunately, crews are encountering some problems as they near the top: Small sinkholes are forming in the neighborhood, and a nearby lake is mysteriously emptying into... hopefully not the base of the world's sixth tallest building.
Infocult has been observing the sinkhole menace since the Earth began her subterranean campaign.
