Event Update For 2014-12-18

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.

    First mountain lion seen in Kentucky since before the Civil War shot by wildlife officer

    ["Jest doin' ma job - killin' anything that I can!"]

    Marraccini said a farmer spotted the cat in a tree and alerted the department. When the officer responded, he found the animal had been trapped in different tree by a barking dog and decided it was best to "dispatch it."

    from the "yeah, right. . . " department:

    Elizabeth John dies of sudden arrhythmic death syndrome [what?]

    Nurse Elizabeth John, 34, of Llanelli, was found after colleagues raised the alarm when she did not arrive at work.

    She had already wrapped her daughter Olive's presents and was looking forward to her first Christmas off work in five years.

    Olive, 14, said: "I will miss her so much."

    Ms John's aunt Lynne Lloyd added: "This has left a huge hole in all our lives.

    "She was a fit and healthy young girl, she wasn't ill and there really isn't a reason so it's so much harder to accept."

    [I seriously doubt that she was diagnosed with this at any time in her life.]


    1. Hey, they stole SADS from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome to use with Sudden Arhythmic Death Sydrome. It could also stand for Sudden Atmospheric Death Syndrome or Sudden Aerial Death Syndrome (for the topplers). That's a versatile acronym there! Oh yeah, and Llanelli is right on the coast. Just one of those *cough cough* coincidences, I'm sure.

    California officer kills teen after machete attack

    WILLOW CREEK, Calif. (AP) — A California Highway Patrol officer shot and killed a 17-year-old who attacked him with a machete, and the officer was hospitalized with major injuries, officials said.

    The officer had responded to a report of a car hitting a telephone pole Thursday in the Humboldt County community of Willow Creek, CHP Capt. Adam Jager told the Eureka Times-Standard ( ).

    The officer and the boy stepped to the rear of the damaged car when the teen attacked the officer, Jager said. The officer raised his left arm to defend himself, Jager said, and also was struck on the hand and face.
    Jager said the officer shot the teen an undisclosed number of times before locking himself in his patrol car and calling for backup. The teenager returned to his car and was honking the horn, Jager said.

    Another officer arrived about 10 minutes later and found the teen lying naked next to his car, Jager said. The boy did not respond to the officer's commands, and the officer used a stun gun to place the teen in handcuffs. Jager described the teen as "completely erratic and irrational." [there's more]

    Two NYPD officers shot in patrol car in Brooklyn

    Two New York City police officers were shot as they sat in their patrol car in Brooklyn, police said.

    The ambush took place about 3 p.m. in the borough's Bedford Stuyvesant neighborhood, according to preliminary reports.

    A lone gunman walked up to the vehicle parked outside the the Tompkins Houses, near Myrtle and Tompkins avenues, and started "pumping bullets" into it, the New York Post reports.

    According to the local tabloid, both uniformed officers, who were working overtime for an anti-terrorism drill, were killed in the attack.

    “The perp came out of the houses, walked up behind the car and lit them up,” a police official told the New York Daily News.

    Both officers were rushed to Woodhull Hospital, The News said.

    The suspect reportedly fled to the Myrtle-Willoughby Aves. subway station where he was shot.

    The gunman's condition was not immediately clear.
