Event Update For 2018-01-06

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.

  1. I haven't gushed enough at how great this blog is, Jonny. From the banner pics to Skull Talk, your quote of the day to the startling punch one gets from reading the top stories in Variety Pack, all combined with your typical humor and wit, lead to a serious indication that we're TOAST in the near term, by so many variables or interacting vectors (where you concentrate on the toxic gases being spewed as a result of it all, you SHOW that there are other factors involved) that we're being slowly overwhelmed by it all. Outstanding site.

    Those "mysterious odors" that AREN'T being qualified by the term TOXIC are now interfering with our favorite distractions - showing that this phenomenon is INCREASING (as you not only predicted, but point our through ACTUAL NEWS stories every day).

    So while we're all continuing along as if nothing is happening, we're going to be SHOCKED as this becomes much worse, because we aren't being told the truth about it NOW (except here and in a few other places one has to seek out). Despite this, many people are beginning to "get it" and their worldview is being challenged.

    i'm going to start this comment by posting an hour long interview with David Wasdell on Radio Eco-Shock (that's on seemorerocks today, among a bunch of other articles, which i'll also post - again thanks to Jonny's open-minded generosity on this blog). Please give it a listen.

    So much extra water is being added into the world’s oceans from melting glaciers that the ocean floor is sinking underneath its increasing weight. This ocean floor deformation also means we have miscalculated just how much ocean levels are rising and the problem could be far worse than previously believed.

    [it's the "back end" of Jonny's MISA theory, that the Earth's crust is elastic]

    Over the past 20 years, ocean basins have sunk an average of 0.004 inches per year. This means that the ocean is 0.08 inches deeper than it was two decades ago. While this small fragment of an inch may not seem much, oceans cover 70 percent of our planet, making the problem bigger than it seems at an initial glance. [more]

    ANY percentage of a SHIT-TON is unbe-fucking-LIEVABLY large!]

  6. 70 boats and boat storage facility destroyed by fire at midnight in Indianapolis (Indiana):

  7. FWIW my comment at the KXAN article on the 18 year old girl was probably not blocked after all. KXAN uses Disqus. I don't have an account with Disqus anymore, but I say where you could log in with Twitter. So that's what I did. What I didn't know is that I was sent an email to verify my Twitter account. This email account is one that I only check every few days so it went unnoticed by me until moments ago.

    Anyhoo....I noticed a man was found suspiciously dead at Fort Hood. As the crow flies, or the gas travels, that is not really all that far from Georgetown where the 18 year old girl was found suspiciously dead. Ft. Hood is the northern bordering county to Williamson. This area is really having a lot of JJFH events these days. (As an aside I was born on post at Fort Hood during the Vietnam war era. In the late 50s this was where Elvis did his basic training.)

    Speaking of Williamson county them corpses are just piling up...

    Another one in Georgetown as well. They suspect carbon monoxide. Yeah....that's a convenient gas to blame.

  8. Dang, Mike! Yer area is on FIRE (figuratively speaking, that is) for JJFH incidents.

    High school swimmer credited with helping rescue competitor

    WJRT-TV reports Corunna High School swimmer Xavier Staubs had just finished a medley relay Thursday and was getting out of the pool in Corunna when spectators yelled that a boy was at the pool's bottom. He says the boy was "completely limp."

    Staubs jumped into the pool and pulled Owosso High School swimmer Kamrin Samson from the bottom as another swimmer assisted him.

    Cory Samson says she's grateful to everyone who helped save her son, who apparently had a breathing problem during his first meet with the team. [more]

    A financial 'time bomb' is heading for the states in 2018

    January is traditionally the time to put the past behind us, turn over a new leaf, and make plans for what's to come. Many indicators show the country's economy has been pumping on all cylinders this past year. Stocks are at record highs and the [completely manipulated] unemployment rate is at its lowest point in 17 years [because we don't count the homeless and many others]. Many would agree that the economy is moving in the right direction [extinction?], which is excellent [FAKE] news.

    Unfortunately, this optimistic news is somewhat undercut by worsening financial trajectories at the state government level from coast to coast. The nation is not in as good a shape as it seems. [no shit, Sherlock!]

    Recently updated government financial disclosures show alarming levels of red ink on statehouse ledger books across the country. A 2017 analysis shows $1.5 trillion in state debt, a 15 percent increase over the previous year and part of a long-term worsening trend. In the last year, only seven states reported improved financials, while three were unchanged, and 40 are on a troubling downward trajectory. [more; it's all lies, smoke and mirrors]

    Aussie flu outbreak worsens as French epidemic of 'exceptional magnitude' threatens UK

    The deadly "Aussie flu" outbreak could get worse, as a French epidemic of "exceptional magnitude" threatens to infect the UK.

    The deadly H3N2 strain is feared to have spread to almost all parts of the UK, following a surge in flu cases over the weekend.

    Dorchester in Dorset and the City of London were last night the only places where no one has yet reported an "influenza-like illness" - with churches even banning handshakes in an attempt to curb the spread of infection. [more]

    Manhattan reported more UFO sightings in last two years than any other borough

    Manhattan has gone from Studio 54 to Area 51, leading the five boroughs in sightings of unidentified flying objects over the last two years, data from the National UFO Reporting Center reveals.

    In all, there have been 27 spacey sightings in Manhattan since 2016, with Brooklynites close behind, reporting 24 strange objects - from a "very bright, round-shaped light in the sky" to a "fireball" of lights.

    Queens denizens described 20 unexplained episodes, with a particularly impressive arrival last June. [more]

  10. Today Paul Beckwith tweeted an article about hydrogen sulfide. I replied to him with a link to this site. He then "followed" me. Again, back in November he said he will do a video on hydrogen sulfide and to email him to remind him. I'm going to wait until the 15th and then do just that.

    Were there giants in Bolivia? Lawyer claims he has found enormous footprints near Tarija that could be the missing link to the ancient giants that roamed the area

    They are known as “huesos de los gigantes antiguos de Tarija” or “bones of the ancient giants of Tarija” across the world and seem to be a clear evidence that an ancient race of giants once roamed Bolivia and South America. For example, ancient artifacts and skeletons in Peru speak for the existence giants, all males, on the borders of Atacama, and who, having excited the wrath of Heaven, were ultimately destroyed by thunder and lightning. Now in Bolivia, a lawyer think he has found the missing archeological link, enormous footprints engraved in rock boulders, in a valley near Tarija. Look at the pictures below and tell me what you think. [more]

    Rising sea levels, longer dry spells and erosion of precious beaches are affecting people’s lives and livelihoods. And in her new book, The Irma Diaries: Compelling Survivor Stories from The Virgin Islands, British Virgin Islands author Angela Burnett warns that unless there’s some real movement to curtail greenhouse gas emissions, the series of deadly hurricanes that churned their way through the Caribbean in September 2017 could be a glimpse into a future of unprecedented weather.

    U.S. Regulators Reject Trump's 'Multi-Billion-Dollar Bailout' for Coal Plants

    The idea to bolster the coal and nuclear segments of the complex grid was pushed hard by Energy Secretary Rick Perry last year after extensive lobbying by influential fossil fuel companies, including Murray Coal and First Energy. The plan had been excoriated by diverse interest groups, including many environmental advocates, some public utility companies and natural gas suppliers.

    Consumers would have paid billions in higher bills, and most of the benefits would have gone to a few big companies, studies showed. [more; hey, we got a win!]
