2014-12-12 - Two dozen geese drop dead from the sky during storm in Denmark:

Note: I wonder what was IN that rain. This sounds like an event that happened to me in early January of 2011, a couple of days after the birds dropped dead from the sky in Beebe (Arkansas) the first time. There was a strange smell in the air, which faded rapidly, and a flock of birds dropped dead from the sky and rained onto a neighbor's garage across the street from me, in the wee hours. There was no storm happening then though. Less than an hour later a street sweeper crew came by (still pre-dawn hours) and cleaned them up and by the light of morning it was as if nothing had ever happened. I consider myself lucky to still be alive after that event.

Not long after that, people began reporting carrier pigeons mysteriously disappearing over the ocean between Britain and Scotland, which they dubbed the 'Birdmuda Triangle'. That's when I realized, uh oh, this ancient atmospheric extinction event is upon us. I still waited an extra year though, to see if governments could somehow put this foul genie back in its bottle. But things only worsened, and once it had become obvious that things were just going to keep getting worse and worse, until we're all dead, I decided I ought to give my fellow human beings a heads-up, in case anyone wants to try to survive. And here we are today!

Note: Just like all the people who've sickened or been found dead in and near bodies of water. Hydrogen sulfide is water-soluble, it can sicken or kill with skin contact, it's a heavier-than-air gas that tends to end up in all the same places that water does, and it is indeed a poison. The largest number of PEOPLE to die after contact with water, so far, that I know of, is 10. In May, ten people had contact with water and died and eight more people were knocked unconscious, in Dera Ismail Khan (Pakistan), mentioned in the 2014-05-02 update. A family of four was found dead in Henry Hagg Lake (Oregon) in August, mentioned in the 2014-08-25 update. More than 200 people sickened after swimming at Horseshoe Lake near Mount Saint Helens (Washington), mentioned in the 2014-07-16 update. More than a dozen people sickened after swimming in Blue Lake in Blue Lake Park (Oregon), also mentioned in the 2014-07-16 update. A lifeguard, man, 40s, was found dead in a swimming pool at an apartment complex in Lanham (Maryland), mentioned in the 2014-06-07 update. Yada yada. Spend much time near water nowadays and you may find yourself unexpectedly spending an extended period of time six feet under too...
