Event Update For 2016-08-15





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.

2016-08-15 - Man, 19, stabs couple to death, bites face off one, near coastal Tequesta (Florida):

http://www.tallahassee.com/story/news/2016/08/16/fsu-student-suspect-gruesome-double-murder/88829518/

Quote: "'He was biting the victim on the face and actually removing pieces of his face with his teeth,' Snyder told reporters, including those from The Orlando Sentinel."

Quote: "He said hospital blood tests showed no signs of methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin or other common drugs..."

Quote: "Snyder said late Tuesday that Harrouff's condition deteriorated and he may not survive. Earlier, Snyder said Harrouff suffered bruises, dog bites and cuts and had been jolted with a stun gun during his altercation with deputies."

Note: Striking similarities to the original face-eater incident: murderous aggression against stranger(s), face-eating, inability to speak (growling and grunting only), superhuman strength, and proximity to the coast in Florida. The original face-eater was tested for drugs and also had none in his system. These events are very likely caused by a different 'drug' than anyone is testing for: hydrogen sulfide, which is neurotoxic and can cause all of these behaviors. Some people have been known to huff a mixture of hydrogen sulfide and methane in third-world countries, where it's called Jenkem. They say it makes them fearless and warms them up. (That's why people have frequently been stripping naked as they go insane too - they're getting overheated.)

This can affect anyone at any time now, and you're most likely to zombify when in, near or downwind of low-lying areas, but nowhere is really safe. Well, maybe the 'continuity-of-government' facilities have a filtered and protected atmosphere. You'd have to ask your government about that; they'd be the ones who'd know if they're gonna be safe while the rest of us die.

The original face-eater incident occurred on the MacArthur Causeway in Florida. Here's a Google Maps link that shows both that location and the location of this recent face-eating incident...

The larger one was a complete loss, officials say, the smaller barn was also badly damaged."

    5,500-acre fire spreading rapidly in Southern California, evacuations underway
    https://www.sott.net/article/325535-5500-acre-fire-spreading-rapidly-in-Southern-California-evacuations-underway

    The fire was reported in Devore, California, in the late morning hours of Tuesday, and within an hour, it spread from five acres to over 5,500, according to KABC.

    It broke out near the Cajon Pass, where there have been red flag warnings from the San Bernardino Fire Department, in recognition of gusty winds and low humidity, prime conditions for wildfires. [It's now called the Blue Cut Fire, it's destroyed at least 18,000 acres and is 0% contained.]

    America to hand off Internet DNS control in under two months
    https://www.sott.net/article/325588-America-to-hand-off-Internet-DNS-control-in-under-two-months

    The Department of Commerce is set to hand off the final vestiges of American control over the Internet to international authorities in less than two months, officials have confirmed.

    The department will finalize the transition effective Oct. 1, Assistant Secretary Lawrence Strickling wrote on Tuesday, barring what he called "any significant impediment."

    The move means the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority, which is responsible for interpreting numerical addresses on the Web to a readable language, will move from U.S. control to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, a multistakeholder body based in Los Angeles that includes countries such as China and Russia.

    Critics of the move, most prominently Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, have pointed out the agency could be used by totalitarian governments to shut down the Web around the globe, either in whole or in part. [more]
