The Earth's campaign against the human race turned to Japan this week, as another sinkhole opened up in a city:
The hole opened in the heart of Fukuoka, a major city in southern Japan, swallowing parts of the main street and cutting off power, water and gas supplies to parts of the city.
According to one account, “'The electricity went off suddenly and I head a loud boom,' Kyodo news agency quoted a witness a witness as saying. 'I went outside and saw a huge hole.'”
