Event Update For 2014-12-23

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.

2014-12-23 - Cruise ship 'Costa Neoclassica' hit by fire in the Red Sea near Jordan:

Quote: "The fire broke out in the funnel of the ship but was quickly extinguished by ship personnel, according to a statement from Costa Cruises. During the incident no onboard services were stopped and the ship reached its destination port in Aqaba, where it is now berthed. It is not clear whether the cruise -- a 25-day Indian Ocean itinerary -- will need to be abandoned."

Note: This is the third cruise ship to burn in less than two weeks. The previous two were mentioned in the 2014-12-11 update (which included 3 fatalities) and in the 2014-12-12 update. There have been ten cruise ship fires in 2014 so far, that I know of, counting these three. The other 7 fires were in the first 11.5 months of the year, so to have 3 cruise ship fires in less than two weeks is about a 900% escalation in the cruise ship 'burn rate'. Granted, the sample size is still small, so we'll see what 2015 brings...

2014-12-23 - Boat bursts into flame at 3:45 AM while parked at Competition Marine on Mill Road in coastal Gulfport (Mississippi):

2014-12-23 - Boat and RV storage building burns, a dozen RVs and boats damaged, near Fern Ridge Lake (Oregon):

Quote: "Investigators say it’s hard to put a price tag on the amount of damage the fire caused, but say it’ll most likely cost more than a million dollars to repair the damaged boats and RVs. The storage building was also heavily damaged in the fire, but is not a total loss."

Note: Boats haven't been doing too well, with many burning up this year, often with no one aboard and while not running. But then the same is true of big rigs, buses of all kinds, cars, etc. Vehicles parked at homes are obviously the greatest danger, since those fires are destroying homes and sometimes killing people, but still, I'm sure boat owners aren't too happy when their boats are incinerated either...

Miraculously nobody was hurt in the blaze, as the patient was moved from the vehicle moments before it erupted into flames on December 3. But safety concerns from staff and patients have begun to grow and the Courier can reveal another NSL non-emergency ambulance exploded without warning in Louth, Lincolnshire, in June last year."

Quote: "Four cars were also set on fire last week in San Francisco. Investigators said they believe it happened early the morning of Dec 17 within a 10-15 block radius in the Noe Valley and Castro neighborhoods. Investigators said it is still not clear what was used to set the fires."

Note: Investigators haven't ruled out accidental causes, like hydrogen sulfide's reactivity with electrified copper or rusty iron/steel, in ANY of those car fires, all of which happened in the wee hours on the coast, so the word 'set' may not even apply at all for any of them...

  1. Meh - heh - hairy Crush myth!

    Hippopotamus attacks and kills woman in Malawi

    'Tame' hippo attacks people for the second time in 4 weeks, South Africa

    Bear attacks increase in Annapurna the area, Nepal
    As opposed to Anna Purna the Philly counsel woman? I guess.]


  2. Hey Jonny - you've cited yet another 'no other explanation'-type incident with the shopping carts bursting into flames! Add it to the list of "weirdest shit burning for 'no apparent reason' pile."

    i'm kinda surprised that the clueless authorities don't suspect the homeless camp of either meth-making or bomb-making activities (as if.. . ) up-arrr in 'Laska.

    The multiple occurrences at the same time incidents are becoming more prevalent.

    This coming year will bring bigger 'surprises' i'm sure.


  3. Thanks, and their definition of 'tame hippo' must be substantially different from mine!
