Event Update For 2014-12-28

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.

Note: Probably something rusty nearby, like nail heads under the rug or a bracket or hinge or something like that. But since they're unaware of the rusty iron/steel fire-ignition problem, that won't occur to them, so they'll just end up baffled when fires like this occur. That's ironic, since understanding fires and their causes is THEIR job, not mine. In any case, one can't count on fire investigators being competent until they recognize the problem...

  1. Hi Jonny,
    I drop in here at JJFHB first thing every day, and have done for quite a while, just to cheer myself up at the beginning of a new day - you know ? It's an amazing effort on your part, and you are a very amusing character, as well as obviously being very intelligent.
    Between you and the other Tom (my name as well ) it's all been said. I still can't quite believe what's going on sometimes but the evidence is there for all to see. I've heard some of the big booms in the sky, amongst other stuff like exploding transformers, particularly when I was in Vietnam recently. Mentioned it to a couple of acquaintances I was with at the time and they didn't want to even think about it period. You know the willful obliviousness ( is that a word ? ) It all feels like a B-grade Sci-Fi movie or pop novel. Whatever.
    Good luck for the New Year and thanks.
    Tom N.

    1. Good luck to you too, Tom. And to everyone! Interesting about Vietnam. It was Vietnam that I first started hearing about large numbers of car fires alarming the people, and then three months later similar fires started hitting the US (and other countries) more. The way Vietnam juts out into the sea, and the fact that it's got all those sea level rice paddies and swampy areas and stuff - I guess that's what makes them kinda vulnerable there.

      Sense of humor is my defense mechanism! It's gotten me through many hard times when nothing else could. I don't laugh at sheer misery (like chickens or people burning to death), but it's open season on anything else. Also, to quote Oscar Wilde: ""If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they'll kill you." I'm not sure if he was right about that, but why risk it?!

  2. Good Oscar Wilde quote. The last thing most people want to know about is the truth, especially about themselves. Don't go there !!
