Imagine you wake up one morning and look at your window at the lake near your house. You see a massive, swirling vortex sucking in giant barges carrying dozens of tons of vehicles and heavy machinery. Your boat, tied to a tree, is being sucked in. Its still tied to the tree--its just that the tree appears to have gone walkabout. The entirety of the large island on the lake has been sucked in through sheer power of erosion, and the lake has lost so much water that the canal serving as its outlet has reversed course and created a massive waterfall. Even the 150-foot oil drilling derrick on the lake is gone beneath the surface.

Sound like a bad sci-fi flick involving a black hole? Well, not exactly. Its a true story of one of the strangest engineering disasters in history!
