** They could've if they were ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canning canning]]'' jars. Canning was well established by the time the backstory takes place and was practically endemic to small, Western towns, because it kept fruit safe and edible through the long winters.

[[folder:The Hundred-Year-Old Food]]
* Could sixteen jars of Katherine Barlow's spiced peaches really have survived in the sunken boat for Stanley and Hector to eat them a century later? I mean, I feel like they should have...not been food anymore. It's not like they were even frozen all that time, they were pretty much the opposite of frozen. Sitting in a desert that was explicitly described as being like ninety degrees even in the shade. Additionally, should the boat still have been there? I assume it spent at least part of the hundred years underwater after it sunk.

[[folder: Rattlesnake bite]]
* Wouldn't Barfbag's rattlesnake bite only serve as a temporary fix for him? Is the remainder of his sentence waived just because he was injured?

** They didn't actually know that Stanley was teaching Zero to read. All they knew was that Zero was helping him dig his hole because they "had an agreement" while they were doing theirs by themselves like they were supposed to. Stanley even admits later on that he could have taught Zero to read and dug his hole by himself. He just wanted to get a break.

** He wanted to make his own version of the story; this isn't really a bad thing, as even though Holes did get a quality movie adaptation, most books won't, and in those cases it's much more interesting to see a new version of the story than a bad attempt at the same version. I know a lot of people like the Holes movie, but if it didn't exist, the book would still have the same story there, so it's not like anything is lost by an alternate version. Though, the amount of kids who would have watched the movie would have been a disaster.

** It is likely that he left the mountain after a while to try to find his way back home. Magical or not, a diet of onions and water can't sustain a person forever, and he must have had a life he needed to get back to. As for why no one looked there for him, it's probably because no one knew of the reservoir there, and figured he had perished in the desert heat. He may have been found entirely by accident after he left the thumb.

*** A possible mundane explanation for the water running uphill in both locations could be that it's really just an optical illusion: water ''appears'' to be running uphill when it actually isn't. They're called gravity hills. That said, the unique location of both God's Thumb and the stream in Latvia may still imply a quasi-supernatural origin for both since most (or maybe even all) real gravity hills are manmade, either as deliberate "mystery spot" attractions or random consequences of building a road and the like in just the right place.
