Event Update For 2017-02-22

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.

    Paradox of human behavior: The myth of radical change

    The Myth of Radical Change

    The myth of radical change and overnight success is pervasive in our culture. Experts say things like, "The biggest mistake most people make in life is not setting goals high enough." Or they tell us, "If you want massive results, then you have to take massive action."

    On the surface, these phrases sound inspiring. What we fail to realize, however, is that any quest for rapid growth contradicts every stabilizing force in our lives. Remember, the natural tendency of life is to find stability. Anytime equilibrium is lost, the system is motivated to restore it.

    If you step too far outside the bounds of your normal performance, then nearly all of the forces in your life will be screaming to get you back to equilibrium. If you take massive action, then you quickly run into a massive roadblock.

    "Resistance is proportionate to the size and speed of the change, not to whether the change is a favorable or unfavorable one." [more]

    The great Greenland meltdown

    The accelerating surface melt has doubled Greenland’s contribution to global sea level rise since 1992–2011, to 0.74 mm per year. “Nobody expected the ice sheet to lose so much mass so quickly,” says geophysicist Isabella Velicogna of the University of California, Irvine. “Things are happening a lot faster than we expected.” [more]

  4. Good point on the cops shooting one - I clarified that to indicate they shot one of the dogs, this time. Heh.

    Weather's been great here...for April! Some of the news stories say that it's been more like May, but that's farther south from where I am, where they're getting more extreme warmth than I am here in Misery. So it 'just' feels like April here. It's gonna get harder and harder to portray the world as being 'normal' as the conditions increasingly veer away from anything that remotely resembles normal.

    A Stamford, Connecticut chapel was the site of a bizarre crime this week, when police said a naked woman broke through a window and started smashing down doors and walls.

    A naked woman was seen wildly swinging a fire extinguisher in the basement chapel of the Rectory of the church of St. Clement. "She was like a human tornado — just ripped through the place very fast!"

    Stamford police said Celina Kelly, 32, was high on drugs Wednesday when she broke a window to gain access to the chapel. Marks were left on the door, which police said she broke down with the fire extinguisher. Kelly went on to kick and punch holes in the drywall of the boiler room behind the chapel, police said.

    "Can't believe a human being did that," Rodrigues said, "but on the drugs, you can do anything - I mean, you have that extra strength, whatever you want to call it.

    Rodrigues said the suspect was apparently looking for something. "A bomb — she kept saying: 'Where the F is the bomb? The bomb, the bomb!'" he said. [more]
