Event Update For 2014-06-23

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.

2014-06-23 - F-35A Joint Strike Fighter bursts into flame before takeoff at coastal Eglin Air Force Base (Florida):

Quote: "The U.S. Air Force on Monday temporarily halted flights at a Florida air base of 26 F-35A fighter jets built by Lockheed Martin Corp after a jet caught fire as it was preparing to take off for a training flight..."

Note: The last plane to burst into flame was waaaay back in...two days ago, when a small plane took off in Livermore (California) then burst into flame and the pilot had to jump out without a parachute and fall 1000 feet, or burn to death, mentioned in the 2014-06-21 update. He jumped, and died.

These F-35As cost more than $100 million EACH. I don't think this one was destroyed though. But at that price, I wondered, do these cost more than an equivalent weight in gold would cost? Welp, I did the math. They weigh more than 70,000 pounds fully loaded and that much gold would run you about a billion dollars, so an F-35A is about 1/7 to 1/10 the price of an equivalent weight in gold at today's price for gold. Or to look at it another way, if you wanted an F-35A, and you were allowed to own one, then you'd need to trade in more than FOUR TONS of gold to get your hands on one. They're planning on buying like 2500 of these things and unless they actually succeed in bringing the per unit price down below $100 million, which they haven't, then that fleet of F-35As may very well cost MORE than one would have if one sold every single ounce of the gold that is supposedly in Fort Knox, which is about 8,133 metric tons...

2014-06-23 - Propane tank explodes in basement at home in Wauseon (Ohio), 5 injured:

2014-06-23 - Metal recycling center erupts in flame just outside Hixon near Stafford (Britain):

Quote: "A fire at a metal recycling plant has been extinguished by firefighters 18 hours after it broke out. The blaze at the JBMI site, just outside Hixon near Stafford, began in a scrap store at 09:41 BST on Monday. Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service said it was unclear how the fire started."

Quote: "The Environment Agency has confirmed nearby watercourses have not been polluted..."

2014-06-23 - Around 100 scrap cars go up in flames just before 1 AM at auto salvage yard in Brantford (Canada):

Quote: "The call to the fire department came in shortly before 1 a.m. Initial information relayed to the fire department indicated that some 100 scrap cars were ablaze, a fire official said on Monday."

Note: Another huge fire at an auto salvage yard?! No way! From the full hypothesis: "Metal-related businesses will be hit hard, including salvage yards and metal recycling centers."

2014-06-23 - Underground electrical fire breaks out near train station in Cicero (Illinois):

2014-06-23 - Underground fire breaks out near Busch Stadium in downtown St. Louis (Missouri), near the Mississippi River:

Quote: "Early Monday, Firefighters received a call for smoke coming from a manhole, east of Busch Stadium near Broadway Avenue. Two lanes were blocked as crews investigated the problem. There is no word on the cause."

Note: Also see the naked guy found wandering around South St. Louis...

2014-06-23 - Transformer bursts into flame at solar power station near the A40 in Whitland (Britain):

2014-06-23 - Medical building damaged by 4-alarm fire at 1:30 AM in Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania), nobody there:

2014-06-23 - In separate incidents, two boats hit by fire while docked in coastal Providence (Rhode Island):

Quote: "The other fire took place on a bulk carrier from Hong Kong called the Jia Hui Shan. Firefighters said the ship's scrap metal cargo caught fire..."

Quote: "That fire was actually the second incident that the fire department responded to at the pier today... just 10 minutes before the fishing boat caught fire there was an explosion aboard a larger ship also docked there."

Note: First fire, fishing boat, mostly destroyed, blamed on 'welding accident'. Second fire, some scrap metal burst into flame in the cargo hold of a ship. More scrap metal igniting, just like all the fires at metal recycling businesses and auto salvage yards. There really is no explanation other than hydrogen sulfide - which is reactive with rusty iron/steel - for the fires where piles of metal catch fire. Piles of metal are not normally flammable. And when there's hydrogen sulfide around, it will also cause problems with anyone using anything that creates a flame, like welding, smoking cigs, bonfires (lots of bonfire explosions lately), barbecue grills, etc. These two boats burning 'separately' is similar to the two boats that burst into flame WITHIN 3 MINUTES while docked at different marinas in Washington DC, mentioned in the 2014-02-11 update. And two boats just burned in coastal Miami the day prior in separate incidents too, mentioned in the 2014-06-22 update. Same geographic area, same atmosphere...

2014-06-23 - Fishing ship 'Johanna Maria' damaged by major blaze while docked in coastal Scheveningen (Netherlands):

2014-06-23 - Boat bursts into flame on Cayuga Lake (New York):

2014-06-23 - Boat bursts into flame while being towed, on Pretty River Parkway in Collingwood (Canada):

2014-06-23 - Several commercial vehicles go up in flames while parked at business in Lewiston (Maine):

Quote: "Lewiston firefighters said they responded to the report of a vehicle fire just after 4 p.m. Monday. Fire Chief Paul LeClair said the fire spread to the attic. He did not know the extent of the damage, but said several vehicles were burned, as well as the roof..."

Note: A big pile of rags just burst into flame at a canal structure in Lewiston a couple of days prior, mentioned in the 2014-06-21 update...

2014-06-23 - Several cars go up in flames while parked in parking garage in Silver Spring (Maryland):

Quote: "Three cars were totaled and numerous others were damaged in a fire at a Silver Spring parking garage on Cameron Street Monday morning."

2014-06-23 - Four heavy trucks damaged or destroyed by fire at 5:20 AM while parked at business in coastal Gulval (Britain):

Quote: "The hot weather may have caused a lorry fire, which also damaged three other vehicles in Cornwall. CCTV footage showed the lorry's lights switch on, with no-one in the cab, before the engine ignited, Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service said. Almost 20 firefighters tackled the blaze at Gulval, near Penzance, which started at about 05:20 BST. A spokesman added direct sunlight shining on to the engine could have caused an electrical fault. Fire investigator Mark Salter said: 'There was no other ignition source.'"

Note: Sure there is another possible ignition source: hydrogen sulfide's reactivity with copper, especially electrified copper, thus all the underground electrical explosions and fires, utility poles igniting, parked vehicles bursting into flame, vehicles starting themselves, etc. They need to teach these folks some freakin' chemistry. They don't have the tools necessary to do their job without it, not nowadays. Also, I highly doubt there is THAT much sunlight at 5:20 AM. If the sun had actually been out then I gotta admit, that's a pretty funny idea: vampire trucks, the sun comes out and they burst into flame and are destroyed! Wee hours, right near the coast. The wee hours are when the atmosphere cools and contracts, which will push any hydrogen sulfide or methane in the air above closer to the ground, making fires, explosions and people and animals sickening and/or dying more common during those hours...

2014-06-23 - School bus bursts into flame in coastal North Myrtle Beach (South Carolina):

Note: This is the 12th school bus to burst into flame in June, that I know of, so far...

Quote: "The fire department confirmed to WKYC Channel 3 that a tractor has exploded. The tractor was located in a shed on Geauga Lake Road."

Note: Not the first tractor to just explode out of nowhere recently. A tractor exploded and burned while parked inside a barn and that fire spread and destroyed four barns, in Dobson (North Carolina), mentioned in the 2014-05-27 update. A tractor also exploded and burned at 4:30 AM while parked inside a barn on Avon Lake Road in Litchfield Township (Pennsylvania), mentioned in the 2013-09-05 update.

Quote: "A fire in Windsor Township started in a van parked a few feet away from the home on the 100 block of the street. The van and the home are badly damaged, but no one was hurt."

Note: Another house taken out by another vehicle spontaneously igniting. Multiple vehicles are going up in flames regularly now but I still think we'll run out of homes before we run out of vehicles. Could be wrong about that though, but time will tell, either way...

  1. Hey, who does the insurance company call when their building burns down?
    The flame behind the sign is such a metaphor for the whole industry, I couldn't pass up pointing it out.

    Don't the authorities even question the cause of a pile of scrap metal bursting into flame? How do they explain it, if not your hypothesis (which should be patented or at least trademarked)?

    When incidents involve multiple vacant structures going up in one location, barring arson, can we infer that methane/H2S is streaming through? Same with the two docked boats on the coast, the bunch of parked trucks and cars in industrial yards and parking garages & the road that saw separate vehicle fires in the same location - don't they all kinda indicate flammable gas blowing through?

    Is that F35A insured? Bills are mounting up.

    Just full of questions today (as well as full of . . . well, you know) as most days.

    Thanks Jonny


    1. Yeah, that insurance sign burning was a microcosm of the reality that insurance companies are facing. Haha, it was, literally, a sign!
