Event Update For 2016-06-08

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.

  1. Cars, boats, and trucks (including another garbage truck and a car hauler) exploding and burning at random times. Try not to be in one when that happens or you turn to barbecue. Devices are sold that have the capability to break vehicle window glass, cut seatbelt material and provide a self-defense tool should it be needed. Every car should have one within easy reach of the driver.

    Here's one example:

    further links there show that there are several varieties including a keychain device and a tactical knife all having the same features as above, some cheaper than others.

    See, Jonny - even on a "normal" day, PA has JJFH incidents.
    In fact, notice we have a strip club next to a day care facility . . [in a bizarre Mobius strip of customer generation]

    Lots of incredible stuff in today's report: more brush and forest fires all over the place, both ends of the vehicle spectrum - a Lamborghini and a riding mower both burning up, a lot of people of all ages dropping dead, and strange objects like a wooden jetty igniting for no apparent reason.

    Here are a few stories from today to (possibly) add to the mix in subsequent posts:

    Shallow magnitude 6.2 earthquake strikes near Solomon Islands, South Pacific

    6.1 magnitude shallow earthquake & powerful aftershocks strike Nicaragua

    [yet more info on that 2013 crater in Siberia reported on by an anonymous commenter here a few days ago]
    New info on 'crater-hole' in Siberia: 'Explosion' and 'glow in sky' witnessed 100 km away

    Since the crater was formed in a 2013 blowout, the crater's size rapidly increased at least 15 times during the next year and a half.

    Firstly, respected scientist Dr Vladimir Epifanov, the sole leading expert to so far visit the site, said: 'There is verbal information that residents of nearby villages - at a distance of 70-100 km - heard a sound like an explosion, and one of them watched a clear glow in the sky. It was about one month after the Chelyabinsk meteorite.'

    Locals wrongly suspected it was another exploding space object falling from the sky [oh, like SOTT!], it is believed. This is the first known account of the explosive sound, and a bright light in the sky for which - as yet - there seems no explanation [unless you've heard of JJFH].


    and a sprinkle of strange stuff:
