Event Update For 2017-09-26

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.

2017-09-26 - Mount Agung continues shaking and rumbling on the island of Bali (Indonesia), people fleeing the area:

Quote: "Warnings that a volcano on the Indonesian tourist island of Bali will erupt have sparked an exodus of more than 75,000 people that is likely to continue to swell, the country's disaster agency said Tuesday. Authorities have ordered the evacuation of villagers living within a high danger zone that in places extends 12 kilometers (7.5 miles) from Mount Agung's crater. But people further away are also leaving, said National Disaster Mitigation Agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho. The region is being rattled daily by hundreds of tremors from the mountain, which volcanologists say indicates a high chance of an eruption. Mount Agung last erupted in 1963, killing about 1,100 people. Evacuees are taking shelter at more than 370 sites across the island that include temporary camps, sport centers, village halls and the houses of friends and relatives."

2017-09-26 - Strange readings on US submarine sonar points to belief that Navy has secret USO program, says UFO researcher:


  1. I doubt anyone's noticed, but I started making the top image a link to the previous day's event update, and I started making the SkullTalk image a link to the root SkullTalk page. I just started that at the beginning of this month, so that's as far back as you can click backwards in time unless I wanna go back and edit a bunch of pages, which I don't. Heh. Not particularly useful, but those two images weren't being used for anything, link-wise, so I figgered why not make them do something reasonably logical.

  2. On the way home from Sprout last evening, I witnessed an enormous road block in the opposite lane on the 30 Bypass by rt. 113. Turns out it was a fatal accident, caused by a car going the wrong way on an on/off ramp colliding with a tractor trailer @ 11 pm and, this morning, the road is STILL closed. I've never seen so many emergency vehicles in one place. They're still trying to figure out if anyone else was in the car (it was so mangled they couldn't tell - arrgghh, gruesome)!

    Oh there's lots of weird stuff goin' on. I've been feeding the local birds (cardinals, blue jays, woodpeckers, smaller birds, morning doves, and other creatures like bunnies and chipmunks all summer long, but for the last couple weeks now - there aren't ANY birds at the feeders. I did see the chipmunk, but no rabbits lately either. A birder acquaintance of my wife (at work) said it may be due to predatory hawks and falcons in the area. It's never happened before, since I've been here. Strange.

    "The events in Mexico are just beginning. There is unusual activity and it is increasing. We did not even expect that this will be so strong. The end of 2017, the beginning of 2018 - this will be the beginning of the end of the American Continent. Look at our forecasts in the application and try to bring it to your authorities. Many countries will suffer. Some will disappear completely. Do everything possible to force the authorities to take action and prepare now," the report runs. [more; nyaaaaahhh!]

  4. I discovered the first one accidently. The second I didn't know about. I use the date links on the right to go back for ytd comparisons occasionally. If you ever wanted to, Jonny, you could "mine" your accumulated data [comprehensive stat analysis], perhaps by categories, ranking regions for whatever you wanted, like small plane crashes within 50 miles of an airport, people dropping dead by city/town - all kinds of ways. It would be interesting but probably irrelevant to our upcoming demise.

    Good links! Thanks fer the heads-up!

  5. There's a Rod Serling-esque feel to things now!

    'A small planet surrounded by a thin film of atmosphere inhabited by a civilization too oblivious to survive. Case in point. Thousands of birds drop dead from the sky on an island in Indonesia, more drop dead on the coast in Australia. By tomorrow even the more aware denizens of this planet will have forgotten as they continue trudging wearily through the mounting chaos on their inexorable one-way journey to...the Twilight Zone.'

  6. Hello fellas, so glad your still in business keeping the world informed.......I don't know about everyone else, but I sure do like getting my "news" from you guys as apposed to the useful idiots on the MSM. I have a great story to tell you about my one and only visit to an island, it's epic! The island was the Northwestern part of Puerto Rico and we were staying in a lovely lodge called the Lazy Parrot, in Rincon...... anyway, while my band was catching up on some sleep, I took a walk to the beach and found a deserted resort on the beach. it was awesome. Long story short, I took the guys back to that place on our second night on the island and we had our before the gig " safety meeting" down on the beach at this abandoned resort. It was surreal and I'll never forget what happened when we started back to our car.....they apparently have cisterns for collect rain water buried around the structures, needless to say we were walking back to our car and I just happened to catch a glint in what appeared to be water. What I saw and did next freaked out everyone with me. In the water was eyes.....eyes that were pleading for I did. I reached right into the blackness and pulled out the most grateful little dog I had ever seen. She was so happy to be off the body of the dog keeping her above water. The sad thing is I didn't notice her or the cistern the day before so who knows how long they had been there. Now, I know every place we played on the island that lovely trip is gone. I have a great sadness as I do not know if anyone we met there is okay or not.
    Well, thanks for letting me share and thanks for the updates.
