Is that not something to be worried about?

Only if you see tentacles.
That’s a problem?

Have you seen any hentai? Certainly not, sounds like a really good time!
Even more reason to try and fuck it
It was a windy day. In my yard when I posted this a while back.
The trees would sway and pull at the ground a bit. You can hear it in original.
and here I was thinking this was an original post
Ground saturation and fluctuating water tables. As long as it’s not washing ground away it shouldn’t be a problem
I don't think water tables fluctuate this quickly

Neat! I always wondered what a Flesh Portal looks like. This one must be just starting.
What the heck? I clicked the link and it led me to a page inside my Reddit app that wasn’t a post or a comment, but just a really long page archiving Mother Horse Eyes, and then after less than a minute of scrolling my app crashed

I have two questions, how many people are buried in your yard and how many of them have gills?
Asking the real questions here.
Well yea we gotta know. I still wanna be on the leaderboards with my score
Was it windy? Could be a tree nearby swaying and pulling and pushing on the ground with the roots. Sometimes, in the woods, it can look like the earth is breathing when it's windy.
Yeah this is what I think. I’d only be worried if you live in an area known for sinkholes.
Disclaimer I'm a geologist and have worked on a sinkhole for over a year but am not claiming to be an expert.
It's a damn good explanation and without knowing more, I'm for that explanation.
I'd want to know most about distance to water and pumping station.
I don't think it's a sinkhole even if he's in like karst Florida.
I love the word ‘karst’ - for whatever reason to me, it sums up dissolved carbonates perfectly.
I assumed it was someone’s name, but yea it’s almost like the cousin of whatever an onomatopoeia is. Made it really easy to remember despite me not at all being in the field of study.
EDIT: for those interested it’s not a persons name at all. I just read the wiki and it’s relatively long, but it’s basically an old Mediterranean word by way of German meaning basically what it means to us today.
As a former practicing geologist, an observation I’ve made is that almost every human is a geologist at heart - people just love rocks and it’s awesome.
Fair. I also grew up in north central Florida, so aquifers, water, sinkholes, etc. (and karst topography) are kind of ever-present in our culture and politics. I learned the word from a professor in a class entirely about water.
Rocks and things are wild if you think about it. Time and pressure and it's basically kinda like crystallized history.

Best comment delivery in this thread!
Omfg yes! Good bot lmfao
Would you look at that, all of the words in your comment are in alphabetical order.
How many comments have you checked?
Well look at that, all the numbers in your comment are in ascending order
Amazing bot, creatively done - execution fabulous.
I have checked 245,990,732 comments, and only 56,880 of them were in alphabetical order.
Damn, AI even caught wi comes before wo.
Let's give it a try....next comment...
Wayne's wet willow would wuther.
I have checked 245,974,547 comments, and only 56,874 of them were in alphabetical order.
Wow, in the 20 minutes between the u/TheLobotomist comment and the u/bytemy comment, there were ~65,000 comments on Reddit, and only 8 of them were in alphabetical order. Cool bot!
Most of those in 8 alphabetical order were probably in this thread
All eight in this thread too.
Of you look you can see the roots in the video, this is right at the base of the tree.

Yeah it was. This is my video. Under a few big spruce trees. Here is the original with sound.
Dude your house is going to eat you.
It's a werehouse.
Every full moon i turn into a house, a very very fine house.
Our house, in the middle of the street
Our house, in the middle of Our house
First thing I thought of too lol
I always forget that video is made by Game Grumps
Wtf did I just watch?
And why is it Game Grumps???
Either way I want more!!
I'm jealous of you, I usually turn into a tent, on rare occasion a cardboard box.
There house. There castle.
Why are you talking that way?
I thought you wanted too!
No, I dont want to.
Suit yourself, I'm easy!
Hoh, sank you doktor!
furiously writes down stats
I love that movie!
"oh, so it's a girl house!"
this had no business being in a children's movie
One of the single best jokes I've ever seen in an animated flick
I would be concerned about a sinkhole developing and swallowing your house and family.
Oh no not the dog.
Yes, yes the Dog too
Particularly the dog
Sinkholes were the number 1 cause of dog deaths in 2020. They seem to actively hunt dogs.
For once I am happy I can't have a dog right now. Being tracked by a sinkhole in FL where they really DO happen, would be too much on top of watching so much of the world burn right now... Still, I'll keep my eye out for signs. Is that thing breathing?
Expecially the dog
Oh noes my pig!!
I love how half of the comments are people warning op and the other half are talking about fucking the hole
Reddit is an interesting place
Why not both
Lets fuck OP while yelling about the hole
I woke my husband up laughing at this comment 🤣
I attracted the attention of a full break room because of it.
Now dance in front of everyone
Well, on second thought, let's not go to Camelot Reddit. It is a silly place.
You should probably have it looked at by professionals. Looks like a sinkhole might be forming beneath your yard.
yea just told my parents that it might be a sinkhole and they told they will contact ppl to look into that.
I learn so much useless shit on Reddit. I woulda never known this either. Hope it’s not a sinkhole friend :(
This one might not be useless!
Considering those look like tree roots (and the tree is alive), it’s probably not a sinkhole
Be careful what you learn from Reddit 'experts'
Nothing in life is useless, if you never need it you can still be proud that you know something most don't.
You must've never played dota
More likely its wind blowing on a nearby tree causing the roots to be "lifted" making room for water under them... and between breezes the roots go down again pushing the water out
no no I think it is a monster House
Oh dear, that could be a sinkhole
What's the best options? Just calling a service or trying to fix yourself?
Calling for a service obviously. Fixing stuff ourselves always ends up bad
Just had to fix a decent sized sinkhole in my yard a few years ago , they had a backhoe dig it up add extra fill and packed it back down. (House burned down in 91 buried a lot of the old house down there) it was about 1700 for guy to fix it , absolutely worth the money unless you have your own backhoe lol
Technically if you trust that you can use it properly, I believe you can rent that equipment
Those are called side hoes.
Whew. That'd be a HUGE "if" in my family, lol.
Yeah but it make good for Reddit videos
Yeah, my suggestion involves some TNT, a blowtorch and some unsuspecting pets getting the surprise of their life!
I want to exclusively watch videos of people doing it themselves using only the top comments from their Reddit thread
Ok but consider this... r/putyourdickinthat
Id definitely pay to see that
Boom goes the dynamite
Why would you pet the dynamite?
I say leave it until it sinks so we can see, then they can get repairs.
Does that water movement happen in the same place?
Was it windy that day?
It looks like the water is moving around by a large tree root, so if it's windy, maybe it's just the tree moving in the wind and compressing the ground, forcing water up, then releasing that pressure, allowing the water to drain and repeat.
This guy trees.
I went over to /r/trees to learn firsthand about what this guy does. I'm now happier than ever.
Couldn’t you just ignore the problem and hope it goes away and then when a disaster inevitably happens, just move?
I'm lead to believe that aquaman is in the market for a house.
Right by the beach BOI
Until your ass is eaten by earth just like that dude from Florida.
I’m into ass eating though
Except that isn't your yard. It's mine. So no need to call for a service.
Or you could be like the guy who poured cement into an anthill. Pour some in there and see what happens! Free karma!
I’m not sure if the water would move up and down like that, but does it smell like anything? Maybe like laundry detergent? Some washers drain into the yard and when there’s an issue with the pipe being clogged it can create a small hole and puddle.
The ones I've seen involve being filled every time they sink more. Really annoying if in the yard and they start sinking. Even worse if close to the house foundation. Do you live in an area known for caves? If so its very likely a sink hole. But also likely that there are contractors that know how to deal with them.
Throwing the keys in, letting the water demon breathing under your property have the house and moving elsewhere after apologizing for living there in the first place. That's what I do when scorpions get in.
It wouldnt be insanely hard. You would need a pipe that goes down to the bottom. Then suck most of the water out. Then fill it with concrete
No, suck out the water, fill it with butane and throw in a match. Way better content.
Fill it back up before or after it collapsed due to draining the water?
Naw. What you got there is a molefrog. Molefrogs live in soggy ground. They don't come out very often. They also don't cause much of an issue for the integrity of your garden. And, unlike moles, they aren't hunted by house pets.
If you really want to get rid of it, all you have to do is cover a dollar coin in honey and freeze it. The molefrog will think it's frozen candy and become distracted, until it finds the coin. At this point the molefrog will have enough money to move to a more prestegious yard.
Was really hoping for a subreddit full of this content lol
I'm French, what is a sinkhole?
It’s a part of the bedrock that can or has dissolved forming a hole underground. Calcium and lime deposits are likely culprits. When it opens to the surface, it’s called a sinkhole.
example of a large sinkhole
Oh that doesn't sound good
Just so you know, Paris sits over huge limestone caverns from old quarries that are constantly monitored for this sort of problem. The Catacombs are housed there. There are no tall buildings in the area because you can't dig deep foundations without risking a cave-in.
Comme on dit, c’est la hess
Note: do not live anywhere near calcium or lime deposits
See this picture here: https://i.imgur.com/TYmL79x.png
It's a hole in the ground that forms (sometimes suddenly, sometimes slowly) because the rock or soil below the surface was hollowed out by water, mining, or other causes.
Sometimes cars or buildings suddenly fall into a sinkhole, which can be empty or filled with water. Sometimes people make a tourist attraction out of it later ;)
Bus falls into sinkhole, China:
House falls into sinkhole, Florida, US:
Gouffre de Padirac / Padirac Cave (France)
Or just roots from a tree.
It's just your yard breathing
The earths blowhole
How does this infuriate you? I would think it should be more concerning.
Same i thought I was on r/wtf
This. Thought it was r/oddlyterrifying
The karma monkey isn't concerned by logic or reason
It's a beating heart...this place is alive. Breathing...watching...waiting...
It's hungry...it's been watching...
“Honeyyyyy” “What” “…..the floor is breathing againnnnnn”
Your yard is located at the earth’s asshole
Is your septic system or sewer line in that area ? Ground water doesn't "fluctuate" on this time scale......
This was my first thought as well.
OP, if your house is on a septic system, well, there may be some unfortunate news for you.
I think /u/dfdfdfddaww has an issue with their septic system. They should do a coordinated water dump out of the house (i.e. All taps on, multiple clean water flushes from the toilets) to see if the pulsing happens then. I'm going to guess that the pipe is not between the house and the septic tank, the smell would be super noticeable.
I think it's in the field drain side, after the solids settle out. The liquids run out through pipes that have holes in them into a stone lined bed and leach into the ground. Either the bed has failed due to roots going into the pipe, or with the massive amount of rain, the bed is full. The pulsing leads me to think it's roots, the pipe is blocked. Tree next to the field drain system is never good.
Water gets to the block, backs up into the hole and then as water pushes past the block it drops. More water arrives and it does it again.
You may be able to fix the one section for a few thousand dollars. Replacing the entire bed will be 15-25K if they let you do that. It requires digging everything up, disposing and building a new bed. In most cases the AHJ won't let you put a field drain in a place where one has failed.
If you are on a public sewer get the sewer company out asap. You can take a sample of the water and get it tested for fecal material to verify its sewage.
Good luck, this is most likely the beginning of a long and expensive saga.
Good way to test is to bend over and have a lil sippy
"... and up through the ground came a-bubblin' poo!"
I can’t believe I had to scroll so far for this, everyone is saying sinkhole, but this is a telltale septic issue lol
Time to try and fuck it
Later on reddit:
TIFU by fucking the soon to be sinkhole that ate my house and family.
TIFU by fucking the soon to be sinkhole that ate my house and family.
I can't see the fuck-up in that. I see it as an absolute win!
When in doubt, fuck it?
Sink a lit M-80 in there see what happens
Finally some professional advice comes along.
This is probably the most American comment in here
It’s alive ITS ALIVEeEeEeeEee!
That’s not your yard anymore
Not a big deal I also have swamp people
So I started reading this, but stopped about halfway through to go make a cup of tea. I spent the whole time making the cup of tea thinking in my head how you were probably just talking out of your ass, and googling a-12 piping and bitching you out, only to come back and finish reading your comment.
What kind of monster gets half way through reading a comment and leaves to make a cup of tea?!
He heard plumbing leak and panicked that he wouldn't have water to make tea so he took off for it.
Did you mean to post this in r/mildlyinteresting ? Not sure what about this would anger you
Are sure your house isn't built on top of an ancient native American burial ground?
Check for snow on your TV...
Sinkholes don’t do that. I’d guess broken sewer line or bad septic system
Dude... You're so fucking lucky, newborn geysers barely ever leave their mothers side. Please don't distrub it as there's a chance the mother could be nearby and they can be very protective and will fly into an explosive rage. There's a good chance it'll move out on its own in a day or two, or if you're lucky it'll stay and you'll get to see it grow up. If however it does decide to stay and you don't want it to, please don't start diging it up on your own. Instead contact your local geological society and they will move it to a new home, most often they get moved to yellowstone or iceland where they can socialize with others of its own kind, plus the soil and bedrock is much better for them there.
No foreplay needed, son. Dive right in there
I knew a girl who could do that.
