Event Update For 2015-08-04

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.

2015-08-04 - Landscaping equipment and building go up in flames at business in Indianapolis (Indiana):

Note: All of the above fires were businesses involving vehicles. It doesn't really matter what kind of vehicles. Hydrogen sulfide is reactive with copper, especially electrified copper, and rusty iron/steel. Most vehicles are going to have at least one of the two, and usually both. It doesn't much matter if the vehicles are parked or being driven either, thus all the parked vehicles going up in flames. This same problem is also causing the rise in underground electrical fires and explosions. Also see the man, 70, who burned to death when his car suddenly burst into flame while he drove it in coastal Thiruvananthapuram (India) on this day. A man just burned to death in his burning car at 3 AM at a restaurant in Fayetteville (Arkansas) the day prior too, mentioned in the 2015-08-03 update...

Officer was a 14-year veteran with two Bronze Star Medals for bravery in combat. Bettelyoun was a 15-year veteran combat control specialist."

Note: Lots of people are losing consciousness while driving and crashing vehicles. What happens if you lose consciousness while skydiving? These were trained long-time Air Force special operations veterans...

2015-08-04 - Man and woman in their 60s found dead in minivan along Salt Spring Wash Road near Lake Mead (Arizona):

2015-08-04 - Man and daughter, 47 and 11, found dead in home in Pittsfield (Maine):

Officials said early toxicology testing indicates Anthony Nazareth may have died of a drug overdose but an autopsy for Hannah Nazareth showed no signs of trauma."

Note: Near Silver Lake. Here's a Google Maps link of the area. He may have been foaming at the mouth, so they may be assuming drug overdose. Actually, you could call hydrogen sulfide a 'drug', in the sense that it's a chemical that affects the brain, and if you 'overdose' on it, it will certainly kill you, so they may actually be pretty close to the truth here...

2015-08-04 - Man, 70, burns to death when car bursts into flame on street in coastal Thiruvananthapuram (India):

Quote: "A 70-year-old businessman was charred to death on Tuesday when the car he was driving suddenly caught fire..."

2015-08-04 - Man, 52, found dead in swimming pool at club in Andhra Pradesh (India):

2015-08-04 - Woman, 66, drops dead in Willowbrook (Illinois):

Quote: "She was seen entering the health club, but no one saw or heard from Godinez after that, police said. Her family reported her missing to police about 1 p.m. Sunday. 'We think she was going to lay by the pool,' Altobella said. He said someone at the health club reported seeing her enter the facility by the pool gate."

Note: So she was near a swimming pool before she died. Sounds kinda like the woman who sickened, suffered neurological problems and died after swimming in a swimming pool in Atlanta (Georgia), mentioned in the 2015-08-03 update. Hydrogen sulfide is water-soluble and neurotoxic and can kill you with a delayed reaction of minutes, hours or even days. You can easily test water - just jump in. If you don't die then it's safe. There are some drawbacks to that method...

2015-08-04 - In separate incidents, three people drop dead at the Sturgis Rally in Sturgis (South Dakota):

Quote: "Meanwhile, Meade County Sheriff’s Office investigators were trying to determine both the cause of death and the identity of a man who collapsed and died at the Lamphere Ranch campground east of Sturgis on Monday."

Quote: "Merwin said the two other fatalities from illness have been attributed to heart attacks. He also said there have been a number of medical calls for seizures among rally visitors."

Note: So three people dropped dead here and a number of people had seizures. That doesn't sound remotely normal to me. Well, maybe that IS what passes for normal...nowadays.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who appreciates you being here either!
