Poor bastard just got into bed, and was swallowed up by the earth, along with his bed and TV (pictures of house):

Sounds like Mother Nature snuffed and buried him in one fell swoop.

It's a damn scary thought, waking up to something like this. You would have absolutely no idea what was happening. It's just beyond a nightmare. Imagine your bed being sucked into a bottomless pit in the middle of the night!

All this about sinking reminds me of what's been in the news a lot these days, about all the kids dying in silo accidents. They say you're sucked down into those mountains of grain faster than quicksand would take you. Fast, but not fast enough that you don't have time to contemplate the corn rising as you sink...it's at your waist, your chest, your chin, your eyes. It's over.

Haven't read about corn silo deaths lately, but we don't have many in New England. I know of that kind of death, though. It's like quicksand, from what I understand, and you can either die from choking on the "dust" from the feed, or suffocate from lack of air. Not a way to go that I'd pick....
