Mel Waters purchased a piece of land outside of a small town in Washington. As he soon discovered, his land was the resting place of a locally famous trash-dumping pit. People would come from around his community and dump everything from old tires to dead livestock into Mel’s Hole, and would listen carefully, never to hear their garbage hit the bottom. One more thing about the hole: animals wouldn’t dare approach it, and a beam of black “anti-light” would regularly shoot out of it, into the sky. Well, eventually Mel decided to run a fishing line down the pit, and try to determine its depth… At 80,000 feet (roughly 15 miles deep), Mel gave up, and told the story about the hole to the whole world on late night talk radio show, Coast to Coast AM (The Best Radio Show in the World). After that, a lot of stuff happened. The government, confiscated Mel’s land, erased it from google earth, and paid Mel a quarter-million dollars a month to move to Australia. One day Mel decided to return, only to find himself waking up in a dark alley, having been arrested, drugged, his teeth and home-made belt buckle removed, and his monthly income ceased. Mel had made his favorite belt buckle out of a set of dimes he had found near his old land, which he was now no longer allowed to approach. Later he found out that those dimes were minted before dimes like that were minted. He came back to the radio, to update the world on his tale… Then a funny thing happened… somebody found him a new hole. And that’s when things got weird.
