Event Update For 2015-12-29

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.

Category: Fires And Explosions

2015-12-29 - 82 cars go up in flames at 2:12 AM at auto auction business in Carteret (New Jersey), near the coast:

2015-12-29 - Truck bursts into flame while parked inside shop in Greenwood (Indiana):

Quote: "With the battery taken out and the fire occurring after the shop was closed, human error wasn’t responsible for the fire, Sipes said. But it is still unknown how exactly the fire started, Sipes said."

Note: There was some rust on that truck somewhere next to something flammable, like rust in the wheel wells near the tires...

2015-12-29 - Box truck explodes and causes crash in Footscray suburb of coastal Melbourne (Australia), 1 killed, several injured:

Quote: "One person has died and another was injured after an explosion caused a crash between a truck and five cars and left wreckage strewn across a busy intersection in the Melbourne suburb of Footscray."

2015-12-29 - Man burns to death in burning RV trailer shortly before 6 AM in Townsend (Delaware):

Note: All vehicles are now randomly-igniting firebombs that can go off at any time, parked or driven. Park a vehicle near anything you don't want to see burning at your own risk. Also, some of these fires disable the electrical system of the vehicle, so if your windows are up and your doors are locked, you can get trapped and burn to death, as many people have. So I'd highly recommend keeping something handy in your vehicle with which to quickly break out windows and cut seatbelts, because if/when your vehicle ignites then you may have only seconds to act before you fall unconscious from lack of oxygen and then unless someone rescues you, you're dead...

    Lots of electrical infrastructure troubles (ain't it strange when a utility pole just goes up in flames - never encountered that in all my years, until recently . . .).

    Fire engine catching fire while on duty - how embarrassing.

    Garbage burnin', scrap metal on fire, another hoverboard on fire [i'm startin' to think that there's a thin "film" of H2S gas sitting on the surface now, washing in and out of buildings, sinking into subways and on the steps, adhering to shoes, cuffs of pants, etc. as it gets disturbed - and suddenly these hoverboards come along with their low-to-the-ground battery packs, and poof . . .], and the usual list of vehicles (including boats and trains) burning.

    Missouri Ravaged By Historic Flooding As Disaster After Disaster Continues To Hit America


    It is being reported that the Mississippi River is now a mile wide is some places, and there are debris piles that are up to two stories tall. Authorities are projecting that the flooding along some areas of the river will match or break all-time records that were set back in 1993…

    Meanwhile, we continue to witness a rise in earthquake activity as well.

    Of course I could also mention the extremely rare EF-4 tornado that ripped through Garland, Texas just a few days ago and the ongoing multi-year drought that is still plaguing most of the state of California.

    On top of everything else, a huge solar storm is going to hit our planet on New Year’s Eve. Fortunately, authorities do not expect that it will do that much damage.

  3. Well, those 82 cars, that was an auto auction biz, and some of them were stacked up. So if they were usable sellable cars then I think that's a record. If they were junk cars then the record is like 1500 cars or something insane.

    Good luck with your flight! Gonna visit any of the new attractions, like the pink-water bird reserve or the new sulfur-smelling ghost town in Porter Ranch? Kidding!

  4. You're the best, Jonny - i'm gonna try to steer clear of the radiation (fat chance), earthquakes (every day anymore), and all other troubles (including air transportation). i visit here every day while i'm out there, but can't comment for some reason. i'll be back somewhere between the 8th and the 13th - let ya know when (and if) i get back.
