Listen, this year has been the little bumpy. Topsy-turvy. Weird as hell.
Whatever your preferred descriptor, you are not going to find the better metaphor for 2017 than the man in China on his phone failing to notice the massive sinkhole swallowing a road in front of him and driving his scooter straight into the pit.
The Guardian shared CCTV footage of this incident, which went down in the city of Beihai in the southern China last week.
Beihai is the low-lying port on the country’s southern coast, and it makes sense that sinkholes can be the issue, much like they are in our own Swiss-cheesed southern peninsula.
The video starts showing the wide section of pavement on the urban street beginning to sag, then collapsing entirely into the twenty-foot-wide maw that takes up almost the entire roadway.
It is hard to tell how deep it is, and the answer comes few moments later when a man on the scooter emerges from the right side of the frame and drives straight into a hole.
Distracted by his phone, he barely slows down at all and as he takes the plunge and disappears entirely from view.
