I think I'd be most excited about this video of nature reclaiming an old tin mine in Malaysia in 1993 if it wasn't for the knowledge that the water is probably dredging up all sorts of nasty mining waste.
Anyway you cut it though, this is a pretty spectacular video of an old mine collapsing under the relentless weight of the nearby ocean.
Who builds an open air mine meters from the sea?
