Event Update For 2014-08-11





The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.



A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

Quote: "It is understood the HMAS Bundaberg was valued at around $54 million and damages will most likely see the vessel written off."

Quote: "Initial reports were that a 70-foot boat was ablaze, however the HMAS Bundaberg is much larger. The Armidale-class patrol boat is about 56 metres long and was commissioned in 2007."

Note: This might be the most costly ship fire so far. A couple of British aircraft carriers have burst into flame, but the damage wasn't too severe in either case. An Indian submarine exploded and sank in coastal Mumbai (India), killing everyone on board, but they didn't list a dollar value for that loss. A Canadian military ship was virtually destroyed by fire but no dollar amount was listed for that ship either, although I bet that one and the exploding submarine were pretty costly...

Note: They're assuming there's an arsonist despite there being no motive, no surveillance footage, no witnesses, no nothin'. Maybe there is an arsonist and maybe there isn't, but given all the vehicles (parked or not) spontaneously igniting, especially in the wee hours as with these fires in Roswell, that's not a wise assumption to make. In fact, competent investigators are trained not to make assumptions. On the plus side, if you're looking for a job, they're hiring here, and you obviously don't need to be competent! Schwing!

2014-08-11 - RV loses brakes, plunges 150 feet down stairs and disintegrates, at university in Tacoma (Washington), 1 killed:

http://blogs.seattletimes.com/today/2014/08/van-driver-dies-after-driving-down-steps-at-uw-tacoma/

Quote: "It appears she was having some mechanical difficulties in the car that possibly caused the brakes to fail..."

Note: Tires and brake pads are absorbing hydrogen sulfide. Then when brakes are applied, an unusual amount of heat is generated, since hydrogen sulfide burns very hot. Then bad things can happen: tires explode or ignite, brakes burn out or ignite, fluid lines rupture, the entire vehicle goes up in flames, or all of the above. This problem hits massive vehicles the worst - like fire trucks, buses, tanker trucks, dump trucks, RVs, etc - but no vehicle is immune...

Note: From 2008 but relevant. And who knows how bad things have gotten since then. A Google-funded $60 million research ship was to study the anoxic 'dead zone' off British Columbia, mentioned in the 2013-08-01 update, so 'someone' knows the growing anoxic zones are a serious problem...

Note: Might not matter that much once our electrical infrastructure is destroyed by fires and explosions due to atmospheric contamination by hydrogen sulfide and methane. I bet that'll cost trillions and affect millions too...

2014-08-11 - Smoke testing to be performed on sewer system in Lynchburg (Virginia):
http://www.lynchburgva.gov/news/city-continue-smoke-testing-sewer-system

Note: A lot of this going on. That's probably to try to prevent massive underground explosions and fires from wiping out large urban areas like what just happened on the island of Taiwan recently, mentioned in the 2014-07-31 update...

  1. Hey Jonny, tack another item on the strange-objects-bursting-into-flame pile with that grain pit story. Next thing you know my box of Kix will explode on the kitchen table!

    Is it me or is the people-dropping-dead column getting longer?

    The usual long list of weird traffic accidents - trains hitting trucks, trucks hitting bridges and other vehicles, cars veering off the road and going out of control . . .
    driving is really becoming "infrastructural roulette" too since the bridges and roads of the country (as well as the pipes underground) are steadily deteriorating with little to no monitoring, maintenance or repair. I recall recently an article saying that the bridge that collapsed over a river 7 years ago (was it MN?) and was rebuilt is already showing signs of wear.

    Planes continue having problems taking off, staying in the air and landing - really doesn't make me want to fly anytime soon.

    Volcanic action is up this year (and last) as are earthquakes (esp. man-made via fracking - and now they're gonna start fracking in the ocean, what could go wrong?).

    Well, let's see what develops today . . .

    Hope things are calming down out by you - lotta pressure on Ferguson police dept.

  4. What the hell caused this? I'm thinking an under ocean explosion?

    1. Not necessarily an explosion, but a methane burp, a big bubble of methane coming up from the sea floor and when it hits the surface, if it's big enough then you might see these 'rogue waves'. The sea floor has lots of craters caused by methane bubbling out, like those big sinkholes in Russia.

  10. Now THAT'S how to "rig" an election, South American style - just conveniently dispose of your competitor in an plane "accident."
