Event Update For 2016-01-21

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.

    3 trains burning up on the same day is a new record!

    i never wish anyone any harm (bad karma), but i secretly get a kick out of the mega-rich losing their toys (like the super yacht on this day, and the Maserati yesterday).

    The vultures swarming that house reminded me of the 12 - 18 of the big ugly birds that perched in the tall trees at the end of my cul-de-sac about 2 months ago. We also get 50 or so crows in the backyard on occasion.

    Geez, how about a freakin' MOUNTAIN LION just sidlin' up to yer porch and takin' out yer dawg? DANG! That's BRAZEN!

    Well, we woke up to about a foot of snow on the ground and it's still snowin' at a good clip. No wind yet to speak of - that's supposed to kick up into the 30 mph range later today (with gusts to 60)! You just know a tree or a large branch is gonna come down on some wires before it's over . . .
