Event Update For 2017-02-28





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.

Quote: "Autopsies showed no signs of violence in the deaths of the adults, but police are awaiting the results of toxicology tests which could determine whether drugs or alcohol played a role, according to Gatineau police Const. Andrée East."

Quote: "Police cruisers remained on the scene at 73 Bégin St. on Tuesday as neighbours hurried to work or walked their dogs on the quiet street, which ends at a park overlooking the Ottawa River."

Note: Right, sure, but they might lie about those results, or be too unaware of what's happening on this planet to provide accurate cause-of-death results even if they wanted to. Best to just assume they're bullshitting us from here on out. Here's a Google Maps link of the area...

Quote: "Police say around 12:45 AM, an officer on patrol near 9100 E. 46th St. found a pickup stopped near a dumpster inside a business' parking lot. The truck was still in drive, with its engine revving because the driver's foot was still on the accelerator. The driver didn't respond to the investigating officer, who noticed his eyes were open and didn't appear to be breathing. EMSA responded to the scene and confirmed the man was dead. Police think the driver knew he was having a medical emergency, and pulled into the parking lot before he could wreck."

Quote: "The oil giant Shell issued a stark warning of the catastrophic risks of climate change more than a quarter of century ago in a prescient 1991 film that has been rediscovered. However, since then the company has invested heavily in highly polluting oil reserves and helped lobby against climate action, leading to accusations that Shell knew the grave risks of global warming but did not act accordingly."

  1. Geez, Jonny - there's so much here to yak about! The wind's blowing steadily here (about 40 mph), but it's still warmer than average.

    The barbecue grill catching fire comment triggered a thought that it won't be long before someone drives a new car or pick-up truck out of a showroom and it'll burst into flame. It's already happened to brand new vehicles [as I've read here], but they were either parked at a residence or on the road.

    The guy crawling into a drain pipe - that was SUICIDE! He was probably already spazzing out (before his accident) and may have died anyway - like in the back of the police car.

    The last Hull incident for Feb. is now recorded. i'll tally 'em up later.

    It just figures that it's the U of Ottawa - where Beckwith hails from - that grew human cells on apples (what a waste of perfectly good fruit)!

  3. Yeah, that was the scariest storm - or set of storms - that I've experienced in 2017. So far! *gulp*

  4. Right, it's early yet. Besides lightning strikes, trees falling, hail, and high winds that can really do some damage, I really dread power outages. First off, in my house, without electricity I don't even get WATER (electric well pump). Secondly - it puts us back in the Stone(d) Age (which is what I tend to do with too much free time). Finally, there's really nothing left to do but SLEEP and hope everything is normal when ya wake up.

    Generation Denialation: The Truth Hurts. A Lot...
    http://ponziworld.blogspot.com/2017/03/this-is-going-to-hurt.html

    For the archaeologists: declaring that Globalization is imploding in real-time is verboten right now, on all sides. Ironically, those who voted against the status quo don't see it ending. Likewise, those who voted FOR the status quo but lost, don't see it ending. What they all see in common is cheap junk at Walmart with new Dow highs forever

    50 years ago America was catapulting a 6 million pound rocket to the moon and back. Fast forward to today and there is no manned space program. Instead, tomorrow's biggest IPO in three years, will facilitate teenage girls trading selfies back and forth, riding on internet technology invented in the late 1960s. No Kardashian-addicted stoner sees a problem with this...

    Why? Because in an old age home it's EXPECTED that the status quo is rotting. However, our children and grandchildren are being dragged down by the S.S. Status Quo.

    In the meantime, we can thank Central Banks for making hedging completely impossible for those who manage other people's money. Either they capitulate to the melt-up, or they jump off of tall buildings as one hedge fund manager did today. [more]

    F.C.C., in Potential Sign of the Future, Halts New Data Security Rules
    http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/technology/fcc-in-potential-sign-of-the-future-halts-new-data-security-rules

    The Federal Communications Commission on Wednesday halted new government rules related to data security from taking effect this week, in a potential prelude to a broader repeal of privacy protections for users of high-speed internet.
    After a 2-to-1, party-line vote by the Republican-led commission, Ajit Pai, the chairman, announced that a portion of privacy rules passed in October would be temporarily stayed.
    The rules, which were to take effect on Thursday, required high-speed internet providers like AT&T and Comcast to secure their customers’ data against hacking and other unauthorized uses. [more; privacy? What's that?]

    The comedian, who died in 2004 at 82, obviously could not be reached for comment. But his hangdog shtick still runs amok on the website Rodney.com.
    "I tell ya when I was a kid, I got no respect," says one of his famously self-deprecating jokes posted there. "My old man took me to a freak show. They said, 'Get the kid out, he's distracting from the show.'" [more; "Hey, I took my wife to a dog show. She won!"]
