Event Update For 2017-06-14

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.

    Changes to bird flu virus could make human transmission more likely, scientists say

    Scientists at the Scripps Institute in La Jolla, Calif., reported Thursday that the accumulation of several mutations in the main gene on the virus’s surface may be able to give H7N9 the ability to spread like human flu viruses do, passing from person to person through coughing and sneezing. The study, funded by the National Institutes of Health, was published in the journal PLOS Pathogens. [more]

    We Are Getting Very Close To An Inverted Yield Curve – And If That Happens A Recession Is Essentially Guaranteed

    If something happens seven times in a row, do you think that there is a pretty good chance that it will happen the eighth time too?  Immediately prior to the last seven recessions, we have seen an inverted yield curve, and it looks like it is about to happen again for the very first time since the last financial crisis.  For those of you that are not familiar with this terminology, when we are talking about a yield curve we are typically talking about the spread between two-year and ten-year U.S. Treasury bond yields.  Normally, short-term rates are higher than long-term rates, but when investors get spooked about the economy this can reverse.  Just before every single recession since 1960 the yield curve has “inverted”, and now we are getting dangerously close to it happening again for the first time in a decade.

    Psychopath Versus Psychopath aka. The Last Rotation

    Picture a society run by Ivy League frat boys with the psychological profile of Jim Jones and you get the idea of who is running this latent disaster right now. The status quo requires a relentless body count, so now they're cutting deep into their own numbers as the "quaint" concept of active financial management has been obliterated in this cycle in favour of algorithmic trading aka. Skynet, and passive investing via ETFs. The economy itself stopped mattering a long time ago, duly supplanted by Central Bank monetary expansion, global ponzi borrowing, and casino gambling. This entire "system" by the way makes perfect sense when taken with massive doses of Prozac or whatever other preferred reality-altering substance.

  5. Mystery of the absent noctilucent clouds

    In late May 2017, observers in Europe began seeing electric-blue tendrils snaking over the western horizon at sunset. The summer season for noctilucent clouds (NLCs) was apparently beginning. Normally, the strange-looking clouds surge in visibility in the weeks immediately after their first sighting. This year, however, something mysterious happened. Instead of surging, the clouds vanished. During the first two weeks of June 2017, received zero images of NLCs — something that hasn't happened in nearly 20 years.

    Where did they go? Researchers have just figured it out: There's been a "heat wave" in the polar mesosphere, a region in Earth's upper atmosphere where NLCs form. Relatively warm temperatures have wiped out the clouds. [more]

    BTFD aka. Buy The Fucking Depression

    For the first time in U.S. history, the economy has rolled over ahead of the stock market. Central Bank sponsored volatility collapse has generated a delusional sense of mass complacency. Now record amounts of capital are exposed to unprecedented risk. Who knew that psychopaths can't recognize another psychopath when they see one...[more]

    ‘Breatharian’ couple survives on ‘the universe’s energy’ instead of food

    A “Breatharian” mom and dad of two have barely eaten for nine years as they live off “the universe’s energy.”
    Husband and wife Akahi Ricardo and Camila Castello believe that food and water aren’t necessary and humans can be sustained solely by the energy of the universe.
    Castello and Ricardo — who have a 5-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter together — have survived on little else besides a piece of fruit or vegetable broth just three times per week since 2008. [more]
