Event Update For 2016-12-08

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.

2016-12-08 - RV bursts into flame just before 2 AM and kills woman, near Oelwein (Iowa):

2016-12-08 - Propane tank explodes at 11 PM under bridge, ignites person, person burns to death, near university in Indianapolis (Indiana):

Quote: "One person is dead after catching fire near IUPUI’s campus. Police were called to a bridge near New York Street and Lime Street around 11 p.m. Police say in a victim was found burned to death in a homeless camp under the bridge. They believe the victim was trying to keep warm and the death was an accident."

Note: What happens if you're using a camp stove and a cloud of methane and/or hydrogen sulfide blows by you? If the gas is concentrated enough then there'll be a flash fire and/or explosion. Bridges will tend to trap gases beneath them too, so lighting a fire of any kind under a bridge these days could easily be fatal. Actually, lighting any kind of fire anywhere, for any reason, indoors or outdoors, is becoming increasingly dangerous, but outdoors is definitely the most dangerous...

The woman was fairly certain the eagle was dead, but we did ask her to retrieve the eagle to be sure and bring it to the hospital so we could perform an examination."

Quote: "Hospital staff examined the eagle for any obvious signs of injury. The eagle was well muscled and had no apparent injuries.

Note: People are randomly losing consciousness, having seizures or 'medical incidents' or slumping over dead. When you lose consciousness, what you're doing and the environment around you can determine whether you wake up again. If you're in water, you drown. If you're driving a plane or vehicle, you crash and maybe die. If you're operating a chainsaw and slump over and hit your head on the chainsaw, then your head gets splattered all over the place, if it's cold outside then you freeze to death, if it's hot outside then you die of heatstroke. Etc, etc.

He believes that the gas was hydrogen sulfide."

Maybe Republicans are working for OUR funeral industry - wouldn't want the UK to out-die us!

    ‘A Thousand Lehmans’ Event Is Going To Plunge The World Into Total Chaos

    ALERT: Former Soros Associate Just Warned ‘A Thousand Lehmans’ Event Is Going To Plunge The World Into Total Chaos

    Victor Sperandeo oversees over $3 billion, has been in the business 45 years, and has worked with famous individuals such as Leon Cooperman and George Soros.  Below is what Sperandeo had to say.

    Victor Sperandeo:  “The big story for 2017 will be the breakup of the euro and it will unleash total chaos…
    Victor Sperandeo continues:  “Individual currencies such as the lira will come back in Europe and everybody will write-off the debt.  This will unleash total chaos and Europe will go into depression.

    Victor Sperandeo:  “Look at what happened after Lehman, and ask yourself, ‘What is the euro relative to Lehman?’  Answer: It’s a thousand Lehman’s." [more]
