Event Update For 2014-08-29

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.

2014-08-29 - Passenger plane reports possible engine fire, makes emergency landing in Indianapolis (Indiana):

Note: Lots of planes are coming down smoking too, although the last smoking plane that came down was waaaaay back in...the day prior, at Gatwick Airport (Britain), mentioned in the 2014-08-28 update...

Quote: "A military aircraft made an emergency landing at McCarran International Airport this afternoon after the pilot reported smoke in the cockpit."

Note: Planes coming down on fire or smoking is getting to be a regular thing nowadays! That may have been what happened to missing passenger plane MH370 too: caught fire, everyone on board was struck dead or rendered unconscious, then the plane flew on until it ran out of fuel and crashed or hit something and crashed. I'm sure we'll see more disappearing planes too...

Note: This will get a lot worse and not just here, but everywhere. But this area IS on the Gulf Coast in Florida, downwind of the Gulf of Mexico, North America's sewer, so it's not surprising that this area is getting hit early and hard. A lot of people and animals have been mysteriously dying up and down the Gulf Coast in Florida too, which is also not surprising...

Numerous people have been found mysteriously dead and foaming at the mouth in recent times, especially in the last two years. As the atmospheric contamination intensifies more people will be dying foaming at the mouth or bleeding out from nose/mouth/ears...

2014-08-29 - Two girls, 20 and 13, found dead in the banks of the Kadana River at Sivasailam (India):

Note: Allegedly they ate some poison. That's India's 'go-to' excuse for mysterious deaths. It's probably the cops who did the alleging, trying to hide the truth, in fear of the billion pissed off people they're gonna have when the people realize their government's been lying to them. If you took them at their word - which would not be wise - then you'd think half the country are people waiting for the slightest provocation to gulp down some poison. 'Aw man, the show was just getting good and now they show a commercial - f##k it, time to eat some poison!'

2014-08-29 - Man burns to death in burning pickup truck on Day Street in Norwood (Massachusetts):

The gender and any other details are not yet known."

Quote: "Authorities first believed the incident was suspicious in nature, but later said it was a possible suicide."

Note: Doesn't look any different from the woman who burned to death on her porch in The Woodlands (Texas), mentioned in the 2013-12-12 update. Or the man who burned to death in his kitchen at home in Asheville (North Carolina), mentioned in the 2014-06-04 update. Or the woman found burned to death at 5:13 AM near a retention pond in Pasadena (Texas), mentioned in the 2014-07-21 update.

Note: They make it sound kinda sinister. Apparently the cops in India are unaware that trees are actually MADE of wooden sticks. Here in the United States we call them 'branches'. Hardcore derpage, India!

2014-08-29 - German documentarian gets lost on the Lycian Way, next seen dead in Kabak Bay (Turkey):

2014-08-29 - Small plane makes emergency landing in Moorefield Township (Ohio), engine failure:

2014-08-29 - Small plane makes emergency landing near airport in Cortlandville (New York), engine failure:

Note: As the atmospheric contamination intensifies, more combustion engines are experiencing engine failure and stalling out. Small planes are more vulnerable to the problem than big airliners since airliners are designed specifically to operate in high-altitude low-oxygen environments. The planes are hitting pockets of the atmosphere with lower than normal oxygen content so the engines are sputtering out. Eventually there won't be enough oxygen for people to breathe either and then whoever is still left alive will fall unconscious and die. Maybe your government has a plan to deal with this extinction event. Actually, I'm sure they do. It may not involve doing anything to help YOU though, but perhaps it does. You could always ask them...

2014-08-29 - Small plane lands, landing gear collapses, at airport in Mississauga (Canada), near Lake Ontario:

Quote: "The plane had its landing gear collapse while landing."

Note: From the full hypothesis: "As planes land, they will more frequently blow tires, or their landing gear will collapse, or they will run off runways."

2014-08-29 - Experiment may prove that we're all actually two-dimensional holograms:


  1. Good morning Jonny.

    Saw this first thing: (under land subsidence)

    more 'interesting' news:

    F-16s dispatched for unresponsive pilot of small plane near D.C

    Two F-16 fighter jets were dispatched to check on a small plane that entered restricted airspace around Washington, D.C., on Saturday, and the fighter pilots observed the person at the controls to be unconscious before the plane ran out of fuel and crashed into the Atlantic Ocean, officials said.

    The pilot of the Cirrus SR22 propeller plane took off from Waukesha County Airport in Wisconsin and had been destined for Manassas Regional Airport in Virginia, the Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement.

    But the pilot failed to land as scheduled and remained at an altitude of about 13,000 feet as the plane crossed into restricted airspace around Washington, the U.S. Coast Guard said in a statement. The pilot had stopped responding to radio calls.

    now this here's a REAL dog pack attack:

    Witnesses testify in fatal dog attack case

    LAPEER, Mich. (AP) — A witness told a judge during a preliminary examination for the owners of two dogs that fatally mauled a jogger that he had to shoot at the animals to make them flee.

    Edward Elmer testified Friday in Lapeer District Court that he was mowing his lawn on July 23 when the two cane corsos attacked Craig Sytsma on a Metamora Township road, The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press reported.

    Elmer said he yelled to his girlfriend, Helen Barwig, to get a gun when one of the dogs looked menacingly at him. The two dogs ran off after he shot at one of them, Elmer said.

    Barwig testified that she used paper towel to try to stem Sytsma's bleeding, but the blood "was pouring out, gushing out."

    something to think about [like gettin' the hell out while you can]:

    Are You Ready for a 35-Year Drought?

    With the American West losing an estimated 63 trillion gallons of groundwater over the past 18 months, it’s hard to imagine that the drought could get any worse.

    But it just might.

    A new study estimates that the possibility of a decade-long drought hitting the Southwest sometime this century could be as high as 90 percent. And there’s as much as a 50 percent chance of a megadrought that lasts for 35 years or more, according to Toby Ault, a professor of earth and atmospheric sciences at Cornell University.

    “This is only the beginning,” said Ault, whose research will be published next month in the Journal of Climate. “The further south you go, the drier the average conditions really are, and the risk is greater.”
    [there's more]


    1. Yeah, I mentioned that Cane Corso attack. Brutal!

      We sure getting a lot of new catastrophe-related words the last coupla years or so: thundersnow, polar vortex, megadrought, firenado, rogue wave, Sudden Adult Death Syndrome, etc. Nothin' to worry about though, Earth's just coming down with a case of SEDS, Suddenly Everything's Dying Syndrome.

    2. And don't forget derechos and frost quakes!

  2. Micro burst's also, they said it's like an upside down tornado!
