11. Is there any scientific explanation for why the sides of all these sinkholes are so smooth?
I've seen dozens of pictures and the comment about cleanly sheared tiles triggered the memory of almost smooth sides. It certainly looks as though there should be a rational explanation. I've often wondered where all the debris ends up too; a 40 foot deep * 3 foot diameter hole is 280 cubic feet of debris that had to end up somewhere.

Anyone know?
