I ran across this on Flickr. There is a huge crater in Darvaza, Turkmenistan that is full of fire from natural gas that just spews out and burns. Forever.

SEE THE LOVELY CRATER

"Visitors to the crater have purported to occasionally hear faint grumbling sounds emanating from the base. 'It's weird,' Stan Turkman, visitor, commented. 'When the wind catches it right it almost sounds like thousands of people screaming simultaneously from the depths of the earth.'"

That is weird.
