I don't know whether to laugh or cry... who in the world writes this nonsense in the newspapers?

Here, this is from La Repubblica:

The title alone, "Earthquake, the mystery of the "bottomless pit" on the Castelluccio plain is solved" conjures up visions of a kind of "black hole" opening in the valleys of the Marche. But if you look at the photo, you're puzzled... and then you read the text and see what mystery it took the cream of the local intelligentsia to solve (that is, researchers of the University of Camerino and technicians from the Marche region). Keep reading -- the bottomless pit is 5 meters deep (15 feet) and was caused by a further settling of a sinkhole they've known about for ages. Some mystery.

Ha-ha-ha. That's me laughing. Feel free to join in.
