Event Update For 2016-12-10

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.

  4. Heh, Trump's sneaky, gotta give him that. That $1 million/day that NYC pays for his security - a lot of that is just the money charged per room for Secret Service agents and stuff. So he can pocket that money directly, minus costs for some nice towels and soap and stuff. So over 4 years, he may POCKET as much as a BILLION DOLLARS of taxpayer money that way. If he stayed in the White House, he wouldn't have that taxpayer-funded money spigot. And he could do what he did before, and jack the rates to three times normal or something for rooms that he's not personally paying for - e.g. adjust the flow of the spigot of money flowing from taxpayers into his pockets.

    No need for that $400k/year annual salary. He can suck six hundred times that much cash directly from taxpayers, more if he wants to jack the rates on rooms used by the agents and stuff.
