Does This Picture Make Anyone Else Nervous?

The picture above accompanied a recent New York Times article, “Silence Underground,” discussing a shuttered Chinese coal mine and the corruption afflicting Chinese state conglomerates generally.

But what caught my eye was the precariously perched building.

The bluff directly in front of the middle of the building clearly appears to have given way.

Which makes one wonder exactly how stable the rest of the hillside is.
