Event Update For 2017-08-24

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.

Yet Afghanistan is worse off today than they were before the government lied to Americans, claiming they were responsible for 9/11 instead of Saudi Arabia. [more]

  4. Jeez, five FEET of rain?! Looks like this is gonna be one huge catastrophe. Harvey's still spiraling around and unloading on the Texas coast right now, and has been since yesterday. Not too many pics yet, but that's because a lot of people left and those who are left probably aren't going outside to take any pics, if they even have power or any kind of service at all.

  5. Here's some scary film footage from a guy stuck in a carwash in Rockport:

  6. Aw man, Jonny - 's-gone-be ALL HARVEY ALL-A TAM, leastunfer-a nex' cupla dize.

    That video, especially with the rolling comments - had me DYIN' I was laughin' so hard. Trouble is - it's REAL and HAPPENING NOW!
    Ain't sa damn funny 'en it happens ta YOU! Now i'm reflecting on what I just saw - and when the video just cut out at the end! I thought I lost power and looked at my monitor to see what was up!
    This guy is in some SERIOUS shit! You gotta be insane to voluntarily locate yourself anywhere NEAR a Cat 5 hurricane - IN THE GULF (where some of the worst ones have come from).

    So weird how like 3 days ago the storm wasn't even formed - it had been broken up and downgraded to "ignore" status off Cancun.

    Next thing ya know - here we are! Very little time for preparation - just RUN! See, this is the part about ABRUPT climate change, the unpredictability, the complete astonishing nature of Nature's immense power, and our "mistakes" in building on flood planes, inadequately building nuke plants to sustain big events like this (BIG? This shit is UNIMAGINABLE!) that will give everyone - even the Exxon people who hid the dangers they read about at the time of their study (back in the 1970's) - real pause.

    They couldn't have even DREAMED it would get this bad. And guess what? It's only gettin' worse! EVERY YEAR the climate degrades (as in becomes frazzled, mixed up and NUTS to live in) and we have to try to recover before the NEXT one hits! INSANE!

    This could be the next big leg down for the world - a cascading destructive (perhaps a 2nd Fukushima event driven) domino effect along multiple vectors (economic, social, political, infrastructural, environmental and more)

  9. I told ya I take risks! i'm travelling to and fro by BUS! i'll keep an eye on the driver, lest he have some kine-a "medical condition" and I have to play hero (or get killed in the ensuing panic and chaos as we barrel into something), between drinks.

    They probably won't allow smoking on the bus, but I have an edible (40 mg caramel from CA, where it's LEGAL) i'll consume before the show. Lasts about 5 hrs.

    The last time that the major central banks MASSIVELY increased their balance sheet assets was during the debt ceiling debacle circa 2011. This time of course, the Fed is getting set to begin reducing their balance sheet for the first time in a decade. Slight difference. In other words, the safety net has now been removed, however EXTREME Twitter risk remains:

    Hurricane Harvey slams ashore in Texas, catastrophic flood threat still to come – “An area larger than the state of Massachusetts, including Houston and Galveston, can expect more than 20 inches of rain between now and Wednesday”

    (Weather Underground) – Hurricane Harvey ripped into the central Texas coast as a Category 4 storm late Friday night. Harvey’s center made landfall just before 10 pm CDT about 4 miles east of Rockport with top sustained winds estimated by the National Hurricane Center (NHC) at 130 mph, which is minimal Category 4 strength. A parachute-borne dropsonde instrument package deposited by a Hurricane Hunter flight around 10 pm found that Harvey’s pressure had dropped to 938 millibars. Since the surface winds at this point were 10 knots, the dropsonde did not sample the true center of the storm, so the actual central pressure is probably a millibar or so lower. Microwave measurements from the aircraft estimated that surface winds were 111 knots (128 mph).
    Harvey is the first Category 4 storm to strike the U.S. since Hurricane Charley in 2004, and the first major hurricane (defined as Category 3 or stronger at landfall) since Hurricane Wilma in 2005. [more]

  10. 2017-08-26 - Bus driver slumps over unconscious, stoned passenger saves the day, near the Delaware River in Philadelphia (Pennsylvania)

  11. Oh, so the original "party bus" - the plush, tour bus broke down on the way to pick us up. We ended up in a school bus! Driving down 202 to 76, our already stressed out driver got us down here in one happy, drunken, high piece.

    We killed the rum first, then dipped in to the vodka. I ate my caramel on the way. Listening to Sly Foxes right now.
    Afrobear, being the headliner, comes on last.

    Yeah - hey thanks for that article about the bus driver, you know, just to keep it real. (geez, I'm he's tryin' a ha' some fun!)
