Citizens Of The World Bond Over Their Potholes On Twitter

As citizens of the world, we may not all speak the same language or have exactly the same values. But one thing we can all agree on is that we all resent the state of our infrastructure. After NoContextBrits insinuated that they had singularly bad roads, everyone chimed in in a display of funny yet extremely damning examples of the world's collective road quality. Potholes, sinkholes, and tomato-infested roads abound. For some driving themed insanity, here are some incompetent drivers who should be banned from the road.

Thanks to recent monsoon rains in Mumbai, the conditions were perfect for a sinkhole to open up riiiiight under some unfortunate person's car. True to its name, that sinkhole did what it does best. It's a little unnerving to imagine that at any time the ground could just open up and swallow whatever it wants, but what choice do we have? Should we not touch the ground? It's the ground.

A couple had just stepped off a bus in South Korea when the sidewalk decided it wanted to eat them.

The ground quickly gave way, and both the man and woman were sucked 10-feet down into a sinkhole.

Fortunately, they only suffered minor injuries, and the whole thing was captured by a nearby CCTV camera.

There is a construction site next to the sidewalk which may have had something to do with it.

That or demons.

A 40 foot sinkhole opened up early this morning at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY.

The damaged cars include a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder and a 2009 ZR-1 "Blue Devil" both on loan from General Motors; the Blue Devil was so named for the alma mater of then-GM CEO Rick Wagoner, Duke, as company staff tried to sway him to approve the ultra-high performance model. Also damaged were a 1962 Black Corvette, 1984 PPG Pace Car, 1993 Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Corvette, and 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette, all owned by the museum, as well as the 1 millionth Corvette produced from 1992 and the 1.5 millionth from 2009.

Staff removed one car, an irreplaceable 1983 Corvette, but are leaving the other cars in the Sky Dome until the structure has been assessed.

In this dramatic footage released via YouTube earlier this week, the 24 -acre Bayou Corne sinkhole swallows an entire grove of trees in Assumption Parish, Louisiana. Since its discovery little over a year ago, the sink hole has grown 30 times in size and continues wreaking havoc to this day.
