People who have gone down these holes haven’t found anything, and there is no answer on how these holes are made.

Annoyed that she kept activating her Instamatic's flash, her father finally confiscated the camera. Later, this picture was developed. Celia said she thought it wanted to play with her, but it smelled bad, 'like an old banana peel.’ "What you don't know can hurt you. 1860-1998."
