Event Update For 2017-03-31

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.

    Ponzi World: 7.5 Billion Joyfully Conned

    Everything we read or watch right now is contaminated with fake hopium. In 2008 we learned that the consumption oriented lifestyle is on borrowed time and money. Going forward we needed to embrace less, not more. No corporate zombie got the memo [more; see graphic]

    Tax Cut Fever aka. Fiscal Faceplant

    Zombies who didn't learn their lesson about trusting banksters in 2008, are going to get their chance to learn it now. Contrary to ubiquitous Idiocratic belief, the free-money bailout didn't fix the corruption problem...

    Somehow the rapidly fizzling U.S. reflation rally has now morphed into buying European value stocks. No zombie questions it. In other words, global capital has nowhere to hide in risk assets, and the false narratives attending each rotation keep getting dumber and dumber. This week's short-covering rally reminded me of October 2008 when stocks rallied into the TARP re-vote. And then the wheels came off the bus. [more]

    Amid non-stop bullshit, which is the only thing this society produces right now, the entire Agricultural complex has slipped into a depression. This can all be explained away of course, and has been assiduously. Weather here, oversupply there, bumper crop etc. etc.

    However, when taken as a whole, there is only one way to explain collapsed Ag prices amid human history's largest population - lack of demand.
