Event Update For 2017-01-25

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.

    Heh, what are they going to do when cases come to trial in D.C. and the prosecutor can't produce the EVIDENCE (since it burned up in the warehouse fire)?

    Unfortunately for the world (and especially Chile) something like 100 of their best VINEYARDS went up in flames, so no relatively inexpensive, yet very tasty Chilean wine this year (from those).

    I feel bad for the family whose young son died in the high school swimming pool. When Navy Seals die in pools, nobody has a chance when it comes to H2S.
