Event Update For 2015-12-20

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.

2015-12-20 - Unknown fumes sicken people at a Kohl's store in Secaucus (New Jersey), near the Hackensack River and the coast:

Quote: "The Kohl's at Mill Creek Mall was evacuated last night when more than a dozen shoppers fell ill from an unknown airborne substance, police said."

Note: The fumes were worst near the cash registers, which means near the entrance to the store, which means closest to the outside. Sounds like a cloud of hydrogen sulfide blew in through the entrance, or maybe some got sucked into the store via the HVAC system. Those people are lucky to still be alive, but hydrogen sulfide can kill with a delayed reaction of minutes, hours, or even a few days, so some of these people may yet drop dead of a heart attack or a stroke or 'Sudden Adult Death Syndrome' or have an 'untimely death'. Even if some of them do drop dead in the next few days, the odds are that we'll never hear about it...

    So we have things like mobile scooters and a pile of old tv sets suddenly self-combusting now! Add them to the list of weird stuff going up in flames!

    It’s Official: Over A Trillion Dollars A Year Will Be Added To The Debt During Obama’s Presidency

    Under Barack Obama, the U.S. national debt has risen from $10,626,877,048,913.08 on January 20th, 2009 to $18,795,033,928,275.59 on December 21st, 2015. That means that the debt that we are passing on to future generations has increased by 8.16 trillion dollars since Barack Obama was inaugurated. There is still a little more than a year to go in Obama’s presidency, and it is already guaranteed that Obama will add more than a trillion dollars a year to the national debt during his presidency. In fact, when you do the math, we are stealing more than 100 million dollars from future generations of Americans every single hour of every single day.


  4. Heh, 'future generations of Americans' - wouldn't be worried too much about that, since there aren't going to be any. We're basically racking up our credit card debt before we disappear, just like people diagnosed with a terminal illness do with their credit cards sometimes.

    Looked at the weather forecast here today. The record high here is 59 degrees. In 135 years, never has the temp gone above 59 degrees here on December 23. Today it's expected to be 68 degrees, which will obliterate the old record by a full nine degrees. It's just extraordinarily unusual for a record to be shattered like that.

  5. Yeah, we're experiencing the same here on the east coast, Jonny. Today it's supposed to get to 72 - the hottest day EVER this late in the December, obliterating previous record.
    "Interesting" times ahead, no doubt.
