Event Update For 2016-12-18

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.

  2. Breaking - crane truck and SUV go up in flames 'separately' within 45 minutes on I-476 near Broomall and St. Davids (Pennsylvania), about 6 miles apart:;-car-fire-in-backlog/1664867/

    Quote: ""BROOMALL, Pa. (WPVI) -- A truck fire is blocking I-476 southbound in Broomall, as another vehicle fire erupted in the backlog. The truck fire was reported around 6:15 a.m. Tuesday near Route 3. The truck, carrying a crane, was parked on the site of the road. It was not immediately known what sparked the fire. Then, around 7 a.m., an SUV fire erupted in the backlog near St. Davids. The view from Chopper 6 HD showed the vehicle fully engulfed in flames."

    So a crane truck (cha-ching!) went up in flames at 6:15 AM and then an SUV went up in flames 45 minutes later up the same road a bit.

  3. Yeah - that'll fuck up the morning commute!

  4. Bad omen: Ancient 'blood miracle' failed to liquefy heralding disaster for the coming years

    One of the most famous recurring miracles — even if one not quite sanctioned by the Catholic Church — is the liquefaction of the dried blood of San Gennaro, or St. Januarius, a bishop of Naples martyred around 305 A.D. and the city's patron saint. Starting in 1389, the vial of San Gennaro's blood typically turns liquid three times a year: on the Saturday before the first Sunday of May; on his saint's feast day, Sept. 19; and on Dec. 16, the day Mt. Vesuvius erupted in 1631.

    The blood liquefied on Sept. 19 this year, but not on Dec. 16. "In local lore, the failure of the blood to liquefy signals war, famine, disease, or other disaster," Catholic News Agency reports.

    The relic failed to liquefy in September 1939, when World War II broke out; during a cholera outbreak in Naples in 1973; and in 1980, the year of a deadly earthquake, Italy's La Stampa newspaper says. But Msgr. Vincenzo De Gregorio, the abbott of the Chapel of the Treasure of San Gennaro, took a philosophical view.

    "We must not think of disasters and calamities," he counseled, according to the ANSA news agency. "We are men of faith and we must pray."

    [translation: kiss your ass goodbye; and people thought the Mayan calendar incorrect (because the Earth didn't just collapse spectacularly as expected (by morons who can't even see they're polluting themselves to death). It's looking more and more accurate by the month, let alone year.]
