    Wow!
    BTW It would have been great if you had written titles of places with each picture.

    You forgot to mention the biggest hole which is located in Pakistan : The ***Hole i.e. Mr. 10%.
    A Post-Wh0re is a user who's only aim in life is to increase his post count. He/she gets off by receiving likes and mentions, and considers his post count a medal on his skinny chest. A post-Wh0re is the human equivalent of Chihuahua..bickering pointlessly, effortlessly, permanently.
