Event Update For 2017-01-03

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.

Note: With people being randomly struck unconscious, where you are and what you're doing and the environment around you can determine whether you live or not. If you're driving, you crash. If you're crossing the street, you may get mowed down by a vehicle like this man. If you're operating a chainsaw, you may collapse onto it and get splattered all over the surrounding area. If it's cold, you freeze to death. If it's hot, you bake to death. If you're swimming, you drown. And so on. So you might want to consider the ramifications of you losing consciousness whenever you go anywhere or do anything, especially if you're going to be alone...

    Great report here, Jonny. New stuff burning: a greenhouse(!?) and a television (!!?) inexplicably. People starting the year off right by dropping dead suddenly, more water contamination, another garbage truck burns and too many strange accidents. Oh, and we continue to keep setting both heat and methane and carbon dioxide emission records. Yeowzer!

  6. Thanks Tom - interesting article.
    Funny thing at work the other day. A woman was late for work and she explained what happened. There had been a traffic jam due to a car explosion on a major highway. My ears pricked up hearing this and so I asked did you see what happened. Yes, she said, a car was driving towards her on the other side of the highway and IT JUST BLEW UP.......Wow, very unusual I remarked, biting my tongue....
