Event Update For 2017-06-07

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 - your report today is an eye-opener right from the top! For example, if wind turbines are starting to burn from JJFH factors, there goes that "green" energy source. I know there were solar panels that erupted in flame somewhere too. So much for Scribbler's "solution" to fossil fuel based energy.

    Wildfires all over the place - and summer just started here!

    All those zombies! Wow - that's the biggest list so far!
    Very strange, that one where the woman helping some guy early in the morning outside a hotel got attacked by a guy with a hammer. People walk around with hammers at 3 in the morning now? A cop was attacked by a guy with a hammer too (but the attacker was shot as a result).

    Lots of multiple deaths on this day - a whole family of 5 in India and that couple in PA.

    Breathing is becoming a problem.

  5. Doesn't publish on weekends?! Wuss! Loser! Sad. Heh, just kidding, Rice Farmer!

  6. Well, that's what I noticed - this pattern just started this past week, I think, so let's see what happens tomorrow.

    Hey listen - I really appreciate you allowing me to post all this political crap on your blog. I think it adds value, in that people can keep up with all the goings on.

    That X-22 report above really shines a light on what's ACTUALLY happening - the guy can read between the lines and interpret all the confusion so that it makes some sense.

    What I got out of it is that the Deep State (that opposes Trump) is trying all kinds of shit to start WWIII (or at least advancing their agenda to rule the world) by stirring up the Middle East (and the Far East too). He explains the Qatar kerfuffle at the end. Be sure to listen to the whole report, everyone.

    Mathematically-based model for a viable time machine

    After some serious number crunching, a researcher says that he has come up with a mathematical model for a viable time machine: a Traversable Acausal Retrograde Domain in Space-time (TARDIS). He describes it as a bubble of space-time geometry which carries its contents backward and forwards through space and time as it tours a large circular path. The bubble moves through space-time at speeds greater than the speed of light at times, allowing it to move backward in time.

    Ben Tippett, a mathematics and physics instructor at UBC's Okanagan campus, recently published a study about the feasibility of time travel. Tippett, whose field of expertise is Einstein's theory of general relativity, studies black holes and science fiction when he's not teaching. Using math and physics, he has created a formula that describes a method for time travel.

    "People think of time travel as something as fiction," says Tippett. "And we tend to think it's not possible because we don't actually do it. But, mathematically, it is possible."

    Ever since HG Wells published his book Time Machine in 1885, people have been curious about time travel--and scientists have worked to solve or disprove the theory, he says. In 1915 Albert Einstein announced his theory of general relativity, stating that gravitational fields are caused by distortions in the fabric of space and time. More than 100 years later, the LIGO Scientific Collaboration--an international team of physics institutes and research groups--announced the detection of gravitational waves generated by colliding black holes billions of lightyears away, confirming Einstein's theory.

    The division of space into three dimensions, with time in a separate dimension by itself, is incorrect, says Tippett. The four dimensions should be imagined simultaneously, where different directions are connected, as a space-time continuum. Using Einstein's theory, Tippett says that the curvature of space-time accounts for the curved orbits of the planets. [more]
