Event Update For 2016-12-19





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. Geez, Jonny - from today's report ya might think PA is just burnin' up all over! Gyad, that's a lot of incidents.
    On the news this morning was a water main break at Fritz .. uh, Fitzwater St. near Columbus Blvd. that happened overnight.

    Still, not as bad as Britain - I mean, what the Hull! Places there are mentioned DAILY, sometimes two-fers!

    If apartments keep burnin' up like this, we'll all be homeless sooner or later.

    Another trash truck goes up in smoke.
