Event Update For 2014-10-14

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.

2014-10-14 - Unprecedented spike in vehicle fires hits Ghana:

Quote: "Cape Coast, Oct. 14, GNA - The Acting Chief Fire Officer (ACFO) of the Central Region, Mr John Amponsah Tetteh has expressed concern about the high rate of vehicle fires recorded in the Region this year. He said from January to October 55 vehicle fires were recorded and described it as unprecedented and urged drivers to regularly check the electrical wiring of their vehicles and also to constantly maintain their vehicles."

Note: It isn't just Ghana that's having the vehicles-igniting problem...

2014-10-14 - String of vehicle fires hits the Liberty Lake area (Washington):

2014-10-14 - Cars regularly going up in flames in the wee hours while parked in Northampton (Britain):

Note: Blamed on arson in this case, but as usual they haven't eliminated accidental causes, so they don't know that it's arson and it's merely an assumption. Competent investigators eliminate accidental causes and don't jump to conclusions like that. The question is, are they being incompetent on purpose, because they're trying to hide what's happening and deceive the public, or are they just naturally incompetent, and there's no way to be sure which it is. I suspect the former, but I will concede that there actually ARE a lot of incompetent people out there and that might include these investigators...

Quote: "I think people are concerned by the sudden and frequent nature of the incidents over recent weeks, and by the fact that these are incidents taking place in very close proximity to people’s homes. That combined with a perception that there is no visibility or plan by the authorities to tackle the problem."

Note: They're taking place near peoples' homes because that's where people are parking their vehicles!

2014-10-14 - Three semi tractors destroyed by fire while parked at trucking business in Auburn (Washington):

Quote: "VRFA units responding reported a large thermal column from several blocks away and arrived to find three semi-trucks fully involved. Crews quickly established multiple water supplies and used deck guns to knock the fire down. After several minutes firefighters were able to bring the fire under control. All three trucks were completely destroyed in the blaze."

Note: Captain Hindsight says, "They shouldn't have parked them close to each other." Thanks, Captain Hindsight!

2014-10-14 - Three garbage trucks destroyed by fire while parked at business in Asheboro (North Carolina):

Note: Same thing here. If people keep parking vehicles next to other vehicles then they're just going to compound the chances that they lose multiple vehicles when ANY of them spontaneously ignites. This was half their fleet of trucks here. Ah well, who needs garbage pickup anyway, amiright?!

2014-10-14 - Home destroyed by explosion and fire just before 6 AM in Aurora (Colorado), 1 killed:

Quote: "Turner said he and his grandson heard a loud boom just before 6 a.m. 'We looked over and the house was immediately on fire,' he said."

Note: Blamed on a gas leak. How do they know that the explosion didn't CAUSE the gas leak? They don't. What were the methane and hydrogen sulfide levels in the air and ground around that house? Oh, nobody checked, so they don't know what effect that might have had either. In short, they don't actually know anything at all except that this house exploded and burned in the wee hours and AFTER the explosion the gas lines had been severed. Doesn't look any different from the houses that have had no utilities connected at all that have exploded and burned...

2014-10-14 - Pole barn explodes and burns at home in Grout Township (Michigan), 1 injured:

2014-10-14 - Garage explodes and burns at home in Lincoln (Nebraska):

2014-10-14 - Home explodes and burns during wedding party in Shahpur Saidan (Pakistan), 7 injured, man falls and dies separately:

2014-10-14 - Chemical plant explodes in Kunming (China), near the Yangzong Sea, 4 killed, 9 injured:

2014-10-14 - Mysterious explosion left debris field on radar, near Shreveport (Louisiana):

Note: I mentioned this mysterious explosion the day prior, in the 2014-10-13 update, but this story eliminates a lot of possibilities. It wasn't a sonic boom, because they don't leave a radar signature. It wasn't a business, because they're all okay. It wasn't the ammo stockpile in Minden exploding (again), because that's okay. It wasn't an earthquake or anything seismic, because there was no seismic activity. Soooo...this might have been another one of those underground methane explosions like those that created craters in Siberia recently, mentioned in the 2014-08-04 update. Such an explosion could leave a radar signature, probably mostly smoke and water vapor. If that's what caused this massive explosion then there is a hole in the ground somewhere out there, which may have filled with water and turned into a new pond by now, possibly out in the middle of nowhere in the Shreveport area...

2014-10-14 - Passenger plane's landing gear bursts into flame, plane makes emergency landing in Abilene (Texas):

Quote: "Communications over the fire dispatch indicated a possible fire in the landing gear on the plane with more than 50 people aboard. An airport employee said the plane’s crew apparently smelled smoke in the wheel well of the CRJ-700."

2014-10-14 - Large 55-foot boat bursts into flame just after midnight in coastal Torpoint (Britain):

Quote: "Firefighters tackled a fire on a 55ft boat in Torpoint in the early hours of this morning. The 40 firefighters from Torpoint, Saltash and Liskeard dealt with the fire on the vessel which was moored on a pontoon in a boatyard. Water rescue units and support vehicles from St Austell were also in attendance at the fire just after midnight..."

2014-10-14 - Tractor trailer bursts into flame just before 1 AM at business in Port Huron (Michigan), near Lake Huron:

Note: Probably a parked vehicle though they don't specify...

2014-10-14 - SUV bursts into flame in fast food drive-thru in Springfield (Oregon):

2014-10-14 - Pickup truck explodes before 6 AM while parked at home in Auburn (Indiana):

Note: Blamed on an explosive device that someone put into this guy's truck, even though the owner was nearby. Yeah, and what evidence is there that there WAS an explosive device? Didn't see any mention of pieces or fragments or anything...

2014-10-14 - Pickup truck bursts into flame near Churn Creek Road in Redding (California):

2014-10-14 - Car bursts into flame while parked at home, fire spreads, two homes heavily damaged, in coastal Stapleton (New York):

2014-10-14 - Car bursts into flame on the Northway in Albany (New York):

2014-10-14 - Car bursts into flame on West Main Street in Millville (New Jersey), near Union Lake:

Quote: "Firefighters were sent to a car fire on the 1600 block of West Main Street at 4:22 p.m. Monday."

2014-10-14 - In two incidents, three cars go up in flames after 11:30 PM while parked in Bendigo (Australia):

Quote: "Bendigo Fire Brigade senior station officer Greg Stead said the first fire involved a Holden Commodore in Derwent Drive, Long Gully, at 11.30pm."

Quote: "At 2.45am firefighters were also called to a property on the corner of Oswald Street and Whitfield Court in California Gully, where two cars were on fire in a driveway. He said both cars were destroyed by the fires."

2014-10-14 - Car bursts into flame at 1:50 AM while parked at home in Slough (Britain):

Note: Just northeast (downwind) of the Jubilee River...

2014-10-14 - Car bursts into flame at 5:30 AM on Sowerby New Road in Sowerby Bridge (Britain):

2014-10-14 - Vehicle bursts into flame on South Market Street in Emporia (Kansas):

2014-10-14 - Vehicle bursts into flame at Popeye's in Lafayette (Lousiana):

Note: And the day prior, a vehicle burst into flame while parked at an auto shop in Lafayette and that fire spread, damaging the shop and 7 vehicles total, mentioned in the 2014-10-13 update...

2014-10-14 - In separate incidents, two motorcycles burst into flame while parked in coastal Aberdeen (Scotland):

2014-10-14 - RV trailer, garage, cottage, fence and trees go up in flames at home in Auburn (California):

Quote: "Damage was limited to a backyard cottage, garage, small travel trailer, fencing and several trees."

2014-10-14 - Vehicles and garage destroyed by fire at 4:15 AM, home damaged, family flees, in Vancouver (Washington):

Quote: "Firefighters fought Tuesady morning to get the upper hand on a second-alarm fire near Burnt Bridge Creek Elementary School."

Quote: "The fire, which was reported shortly after 4:15 a.m.according to dispatchers, began in the garage, then moved inside the home and into the attic. Firefighters worried the blaze would spread to the house next door and called in a second alarm. Crews are in the process of breaking down some of the vehicles inside the garage, which is destroyed."

Note: So this fire began in the garage, and destroyed vehicles parked there. One of those vehicles probably spontaneously ignited, as many are. It doesn't matter if they're parked or running - they're burning either way. Park a vehicle inside an attached garage or near your home at your own risk...

2014-10-14 - Car and garage destroyed by fire, two more vehicles damaged, at home in Mason City (Iowa):

2014-10-14 - Vehicle and garage destroyed by fire at home in Oxford (Connecticut):

2014-10-14 - SUV, minivan and palm tree destroyed by fire at home in Stockton (California):

Quote: "No one who was present while firefighters were on the scene saw how the fire started, Silski said."

Note: They're assuming arson. I guess they haven't noticed that palm trees have spontaneously ignited a number of times and of course parked vehicles have been spontaneously igniting all over the place for years. It appears that nobody pays fire investigators to be observant...

2014-10-14 - Work truck and barn destroyed by fire at home in Howard Township (Michigan):

2014-10-14 - Car and garage destroyed by fire at home in Ewloe (Britain), near the coast:

2014-10-14 - Barn destroyed by fire near Belton (South Carolina):

2014-10-14 - Series of nine small fires erupt in the wee hours in San Luis Obispo (California):

Note: One fire was a pallet of railroad stuff, two fires were in trash bins, one was vegetation along railroad tracks, two fires were along a creek, and they don't say what the other fires were. So, pallet, trash, creek, wee hours, no witnesses, no motive, no evidence of any kind that humans were involved in any of these fires...but they assume arson anyway. Can't we just get some monkeys and feed them bananas when they hit an 'arson' button? Same level of competence, no loss there, but waaaay cheaper for the taxpayers. Win-win for monkeys AND taxpayers!

2014-10-14 - Big pile of hay bursts into flame in Sacramento (California):

Quote: "No structures are threatened by the flames, but a smokey odor was noticeable across the river in downtown Sacramento. It’s unknown what started the fire."

2014-10-14 - Car-hauler hits vehicle, bursts into flame, on I-10 in Palm Desert (California):

Note: Doesn't look like this fire had anything to do with the crash, at least not directly. It appears to have originated in the rear wheels or brakes of the semi tractor or maybe the front wheels or brakes of the trailer, so he probably hit the brakes to avoid the crash and the brakes and/or wheels ignited and burned up those cars...

2014-10-14 - Tractor trailer hits car-hauler and overturns at 2:40 AM on I-70 near Smithton (Pennsylvania), 1 injured:

2014-10-14 - Two tractor trailers and minivan crash, one semi bursts into flame, on I-70 near Columbus (Ohio), 7 injured:

Quote: "The semi that struck the vehicles overturned and caught fire, troopers said, and that trucker was revived by doctors."

Note: So the driver that plowed into the other vehicles and caught fire, his heart was stopped and he was resuscitated. He may have gotten a whiff of hydrogen sulfide and lost consciousness and started dying and that's what caused this crash to occur in the first place. That's happening to people driving cars too, of course, but a rinky-dink car isn't as apt to cause damage like a big rig or a bus, so the big rigs and buses get the most media attention. People barely notice when a car veers off the road at 3 AM, hits a tree, bursts into flame and incinerates the driver...

He was in critical condition, officials said. The man, 28, was driving westbound on the highway when his vehicle went off the road, through a grassy median and up an embankment before catching fire..."

2014-10-14 - Woman, 19, breaks into home, smashes stuff, sets two fires, in Arab (Alabama):

Quote: "Ralston said her actions inside were the really strange part. He said she threw a chair through a window and used the chair's leg to smash holes in the walls. He said she also smeared barbeque sauce over walls and mirrors throughout the house. Grace is also accused of starting a fire on the stove and another in a bathroom. A neighbor saw the smoke and called police. Officers said Grace was still in the house when they arrived. Ralston said she was irate and threatened the arresting officers with the chair leg, but they subdued her."

2014-10-14 - Scientists at the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota say Ebola is airborne:

Note: Makes sense. Most viruses are airborne and many of the Ebola infections could only have occurred if it's airborne, so I tend to believe these folks...

2014-10-14 - Ebola death rate tops 70%:

Note: Combine that death rate with the long three-week incubation period and this is really starting to look like a potential doomsday virus, one that is spreading out of control. It's not quite as deadly as the fictional Captain Trips from The Stand, but it's not so far from it either. Is this Ebola outbreak a worse problem than the atmosphere being contaminated by hydrogen sulfide and methane? No, because the atmospheric contamination problem will last for thousands of years (or more) and that will kill pretty much everything, not just a few species. But in the short term, for human beings in particular, Ebola could end up seriously killing the crap out of us. Of course, they're not mutually incompatible problems and we have both...

2014-10-14 - United States wants dedicated Ebola hospitals in each state:

2014-10-14 - Epic plague of rabbits hits the Lockyer Valley (Australia), disrupts agriculture:

Quote: "Lockyer Valley is on the brink of a rabbit plague of epic proportions and stakeholders in the region are set to tackle the issue head on before it escalates. Lockyer Valley Mayor Steve Jones said the rabbit numbers in the area had reached such high levels that they were having a detrimental impact on the agricultural industry."

Note: Well, if I want to move away from my OWN epic plague of rabbits, I now know where NOT to go!

2014-10-14 - Yellow fever mosquitos found in the Los Angeles area (California):

Quote: "Yellow fever mosquitoes - which can transmit dengue, chikungunya and yellow fever itself - have been found in the Los Angeles region, officials announced Wednesday. These mosquitoes can spread the three deadly tropical viruses to humans through their bites. They were found Oct. 7 and 8 in Commerce and Pico Rivera, respectively, according to the Greater Los Angeles County Vector Control District (GLACVCD) and San Gabriel Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District (SGVMVCD)."

2014-10-14 - Girl, 4, falls eight stories off apartment building in coastal Broadbeach (Australia), 1 injured:

Note: Possible toppler, especially considering the coastal location, or could be an accident. Mainly just mentioning it because the fact that she survived a fall of EIGHT STORIES is just incredible. Her parents probably went and hugged the shrubbery she landed on...


  1. G'day Jonny! Another loud boom:

    Louisiana loud boom shakes ground, scares residents: Sonic UFO or meteorite?

    [Now they're makin' up names for it "sonic UFO" - what a crock. Oh, and notice no other explanations are spoken of - it's one or the other.]

    Animals and fish dying out in droves! When are people going to wake up to the fact that we're powering our own gas chamber!?

    That little girl falling story was amazing. 8 stories at free-fall is near terminal velocity I think.

    Be back later.


    People freakin' and tweakin' on H2S. I'm fascinated by the incidents where the victim suddenly "comes to" and doesn't remember a thing.

    Great comments today Jonny. I learn more and occasionally laugh at your words ("Goin' to the chapel" - you're revealing your age a little too).

    So in the last week or so we've seen an ex-Navy Seal and a bodybuilder just drop dead. Whew - we don't have a whisper of a chance with this gas.

    1. Heh, figured the 'Chapel' reference might date me some. I ain't no spring chicken! Why, back in mah day, asynchronous digital subscriber line was slow BOTH ways. And there warn't even no internets around anyways!

  2. So a co worker mine is from Lansing and so I pay attention to the area ( mass guy) anyway the area has hit the SADS section quite often since I've known her (as has ours here in MA) and reading landings news article they commented on the recent numerous SADS situation. Sudden Adult Death Syndrome!

    2014-10-14 - College student, man, 21, drops dead on Cedar Street in Lansing (Michigan):

    She was found unresponsive and not breathing in the 200 block of Cedar Street. East Lansing police and firefighters were called to the scene at 7:23 p.m. and began CPR upon arrival. He died at Sparrow Hospital.
    Police said there was no indication of foul play, but that their investigation is continuing.
    Sahi was a junior majoring in genomics and molecular genetics, according to MSU's online directory. He made the dean's list in the spring and fall of 2013. At the University Undergraduate Research and Arts Forum held by MSU last spring, he presented a project on the growth of the bacterium that causes most cases of tuberculosis.
    Two other MSU students have died this academic year.
    Jiayi Dai, a 19-year-old student from China, died on Aug. 23. Police said alcohol may have been a factor. Morgan McGregor, a 20-year-old senior, died on Sept. 27. Police said it appeared to be "a natural death." McGregor apparently had a heart condition.

    1. That's three young college students dead since August 23 at that one school alone. And who knows, any of them might have been the person who would have come up with some kind of solution to our woes, or some aspect of our woes. Orwell would not have been surprised at the acronym SADS being used to sweep people dropping dead under the rug of perception for the masses.

      And I pay a little extra attention to your area (Massachusetts), because my significant other's sister just got married and moved to Boston. Not that she was a whole lot better off in Kansas but at least Kansas isn't right next to those methane clathrates dissolving along the East Coast.
