Event Update For 2015-04-16

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.

  1. This day has to be some kind of record for most barn fires, holy crap!

    How soon before people notice what's going on? Probably not until it comes up and bites 'em in the ass, would be my guess - because they're so distracted and refuse to acknowledge reality.

    Great job Jonny - loved the humor throughout. [hey, were you the anonymous person who reported on the bridge collapsing?]

    The man who died on the beach at North Carolina was eerily similar to what happened to me - but i didn't even get to the beach (passed out on a bench on the boardwalk) and was lucky enough not to have died yet. Well, unless all these people are the lucky ones - being dropped off the plane of existence quickly. In fact, if people want to commit suicide now, all they have to do is go fishing, or take a walk along a beach (or drive into a lake).

    Not a good day for military aircraft - or armored cars carrying cash (monopoly money at this point).

    That mystery disease in Nigeria is like the "sleeping" disease in another place (Middle East? Kazakhstan?), affecting loads of people (and causing kidney issues, as i recall). Don't look now but we're wading into deep shit people.

    Well, maybe i'll sit down to a nice meal of pie and chips, take my mind off it all:

    Pensioner finds snake in his oven in Halliwell, UK

    A pensioner ready to enjoy a meal of pie and chips was shocked to discover a three foot snake slithering around inside his oven.

    Experts said the banded California king snakes can grow up to 6ft in length and were commonly kept as pets.

    "It is the time of year when they come out basking in the sun - this is the second escaped snake in just over a week which has made an appearance in Greater Manchester.

    Oil leak goes almost unnoticed: Secrecy shrouds decade-old oil spill in Gulf

    U.S. lets Taylor Energy shield information as trade secrets

    Over the Gulf of Mexico | Down to just one full-time employee, Taylor Energy Company exists for only one reason: to fight an oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico that has gone largely unnoticed, despite creating miles-long slicks for more than a decade.

    The New Orleans-based company has downplayed the leak's environmental impact, likening it to scores of minor spills and natural seeps that the Gulf routinely absorbs.

    But an Associated Press investigation has revealed evidence that the spill is far worse than what Taylor — or the government — has publicly reported. Presented with AP's findings, the Coast Guard provided a new leak estimate that is about 20 times greater than one recently touted by the company.

    Outside experts said the spill could be even worse — possibly one of the largest ever in the Gulf, albeit still dwarfed by BP's massive 2010 gusher.

    The roots of the leak lie in an underwater mudslide triggered by Hurricane Ivan's waves in September 2004.

    That toppled Taylor's platform and buried 28 wells under sediment about 10 miles off Louisiana's coast at a depth of roughly 475 feet.

  2. Wow, that landslide was something else! Gotta say though, if I was to get hit by a landslide, that's the kind I'd want - slow enough to outwalk it. But still, it was tearing down transmission towers and electric poles and totally buried that road - lotta damage.

    Firefighters showed up at a burning home, nobody there, but they heard voices calling out 'Help!' and 'Fire!' It was two parrots! I wonder how they learned that - previous fire? However they learned it, that's smart!
