Event Update For 2013-05-17

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.

2013-05-17 - Underground electrical explosion blows pavement apart, leaves crater, in Stevenage (Britain):
Quote: "Police were called to the scene of the explosion in Town Square on a pedestrian walkway in front of Mecca Bingo at quarter to one last night."
Quote: "The underground electrical explosion blew some paving apart, leaving a crater in the pavement which was cordoned off at 1.23am for public safety."
Note: Hydrogen sulfide is a heavier-than-air gas and will seek out low-lying areas like underground electrical facilities, sewers, basements, etc. It's also highly flammable and reactive with copper, especially electrified copper, like that found in underground electrical facilities. There have been many similar events recently, especially in the last several months...

Quote: "We can't conclude from an eaten body that the person was attacked. Most of these bodies were 2-3 days old and could have been eaten after the people died."

Note: So the police want to insist that these people were killed and eaten by animals. The people who actually work with animals professionally say no, they may have died and THEN been eaten. I think I'd go with the forestry people here, seeing as it's the police in India making up ludicrous stories to hide the mass poisoning by hydrogen sulfide from the people, like the story they made up about the recently engaged and happy couple that police said had suddenly decided to kill themselves by consuming poison...

2013-05-17 - Boy found dead in water at quarry in Bangoda (India):

Earlier on Sunday two Class X students drowned in the Bokaro cooling pond while bathing with their friends. On Wednesday, a body of Class XII student of DAV Public School was found from Garga Dam near Chirudih under Balidih police station."

Note: Say, that's a lot of young people being found in bodies of water in a short amount of time in that area...

Note: So this occurred during the wee hours...

2013-05-17 - Sinkhole opens up on street in Austin (Texas), partially swallows school bus:

2013-05-17 - Sinkhole opens near road in Fayetteville (Arkansas):


  1. Did you seal under the porch also? Do you have a porch built above dirt similar to a deck? The gases could build up under the porch where all of the rusty nails are sticking through & where the wood is most absorbent because it is usually unpainted & raw. This is fresh in my mind because I have been working under my porch raising sunken areas of my house.

    "Note: Porches have the same vulnerabilities as pallets: absorbent wood and nails and screws that rust. I just put a fresh new coat of sealant on all of my exterior wood (small porch and fence), which should hopefully provide at least some protection from this problem..."

    1. It's on concrete, and yep, sealed the underside too. Thinking about adding a layer of glossy exterior paint too, just for good measure!

      I built a small storage building too, and I applied sealant to every board as I built it, then coated that with two layers of glossy exterior paint, and then put some plastic sheeting on all the horizontal surfaces. I keep emergency supplies in that, in case the house burns down. Two bunks in there, solar panel, backup batteries, food, water purification, lights, books, tools, clothes. On the outside it looks like a giant plant stand, and there are 23 containers with plants on three tiers. Everybody in the neighborhood knows me as 'that gardener guy', so the fact that I have a giant 'plant stand' bristling with plants doesn't get me any weird looks. Heh.

    2. What brand of sealant & paint are you using?
      Regarding all of the decks that are igniting, they should be rebuilt (assuming the attached house didn't burn down) with recycled plastic wood.

      As far as warning people goes, have you given up trying to warn people directly one on one in person? Is the JJFH blog the only way that you warn people now?

    3. I used Flood (brand) waterproofing stain, and Valspar Hi-Gloss exterior paint. I have cedar wood, but you're totally right about the composite plastic wood stuff. If I had it to do over again, that's what I'd use. My neighbor has a fence made out of that and though you can tell it's obviously not real wood, it still looks decent, and that composite plastic stuff is waaay less porous than any wood. Less maintenance too. Oh, I also used those nice coated hex (driver) screws to connect stuff, so hopefully there'll be little exposed steel to rust. I love those screws!

      I wouldn't say I've given up trying to warn people one on one in person. It's just that I don't actually meet many people, and I've warned everyone I know already. If I made a new friend, I'd warn them too. If you mean, do I warn strangers, like the guy at Home Depot who recommended the Flood waterproofing, I don't do that. 'Hey, what would you recommend as the best stain for waterproofing some cedar? And by the way, we're in the middle of an extinction event that could kill you tonight!' LMAO!

    4. No I didn't mean it that way but come to think of it you could try wearing a 'HatCam' & make a very funny ELE prank out of that line for a dark humor Candid Camera bit for Youtube!

      "If you mean, do I warn strangers, like the guy at Home Depot who recommended the Flood waterproofing, I don't do that. 'Hey, what would you recommend as the best stain for waterproofing some cedar? And by the way, we're in the middle of an extinction event that could kill you tonight!' LMAO!"

      Once in awhile I will tell a stranger but only through email. I remember twice doing it. Once was to the coroner's office who was performing autopsies on those two next-door neighbors who basically died at the same time & the other was to a cabinet maker who's car ignited first (most likely) & then started his business building on fire but I sent it to his business email address. They never responded & I didn't think they would. Also, occasionally I will make a comment at some of the news links listed here telling them to "check out the JJFH blog".

    5. Hah, I actually do have a pair of sunglasses that records video (or takes pictures). I needed a new pair of sunglasses (because the Sun is now so infernally white and bright), and these were $30 (including an 8-gig MicroSD card to record on), and that seemed like a steal. So I could actually do that sort of 'Candid Camera' thing!

      I do post links to here on news stories at news outlets from time to time, yes. I don't do it religiously or anything, but here and there, when it seems reasonably appropriate.

  2. Hello frm Manila and THanks again for all the time & effort! Just caught this... don't know al the details but plane just made belly landing at Newark :(
    US Airways flight from Philadelphia was forced to make an emergency landing

    1. Thanks! That's an insanely dangerous thing to do. They obviously had no choice, else they wouldn't have done that. That has to pretty much take that plane offline for a long time too, grinding along over concrete on its belly. They're lucky nothing went wrong. Good piloting!

    2. Found this today, thought you'd consider it a classic example of "landing gear problem":

      Also, they had ~600 dead animals on abeach in Chile the other day:

      Another thing, do you have a list mentioning all the events involving cruise ships? That would be really helpful.

      I put some ground espresso on my basil's soil today. just as a precaution...and maybe he'll grow even better now! :P

    3. The animals in Chile died because of blast fishing btw. I just thought it would be worth mentioning. Should have included that info too...

    4. I saw the story about the dead coastal animals in Chile. They say they THINK it was blast fishing. Maybe it was. But what if one of those neighborhood-shaking explosions detonates right above the waters in the ocean? Wouldn't that look exactly the same? Bunch of dead creatures, signs of explosion-related injuries...

    5. Also, no list of just cruise ships. I do have a list of boat fires/explosions, but I've never posted the entire list. Maybe I should. It's pretty big now, almost 2000 lines (counting blank separator lines and the one-line descriptions).

    6. Yes, please post it. I can search for the cruise ships myself, then. Thanks!

    7. Okay, I'll get that done after I post the 2013-05-18 update. Gern geschehen! Heheh.

    8. Okay, posted 'Boat And Ship Fires'. I backdated it a couple of days so it wouldn't just scroll off all of the daily updates (it's a big list), and I linked it on the right too, to make it handy. I'm not finished bolding stuff, but it's at least functional. Whew.

  3. Of course, there's no definite proof for death by blast fishing, they're still making tests. Who knows.. maybe a giant plume of H2S DID explode right above the surface, although I can't see how it could ignite on the open sea. Let's just hope that was not the case.

    1. I can think of three ways it could ignite: a ship serves as the ignition source (and it blows up too and is never seen again), static electricity, and lightning.
