Event Update For 2018-06-22

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.

2018-06-22 - Hydrogen sulfide blows through Moscow (Russia):

Quote: "The odor threshold of hydrogen sulfide was exceeded in the night of Friday in several districts of Moscow..."

Note: Just think if a plane tries to land while H2S is blowing around - it could catch fire!

2018-06-22 - Passenger plane bursts into flame, cabin fills with smoke, plane lands safely in Moscow (Russia):

Quote: "A Russian plane caught fire as it flew dozens of Peruvian world cup fans to Moscow - just days after Saudi Arabia's official team jet suffered an engine explosion in mid-air. Peruvian media claim the 30-year-old plane burst into flames as it descended into the Russian capital - sparking panic onboard as smoke poured into the cabin."

Quote: "Passengers heard an explosion 20 minutes before landing. A few seconds later, smoke began to enter the cabin. Some passengers saw the turbine catch fire."

Note: This is the 100th aircraft to smoke/burn/explode in 2018. Last year we hit the 100th smoking/burning/exploding aircraft on November 6 2017, mentioned in the 2017-11-06 update, and we ended the year with 116 total, so we're now just 16 away from the total for all of 2017, and it's only June. A lot of the plane fires this year have resulted in fatalities too, sometimes many fatalities. Also keep in mind that these counts are probably way lower than the actual number of planes burning, especially small planes. Responders show up to a crash and the plane's on fire and there's nothing left and everybody is dead - barring witnesses, they assume the crash caused the plane to burn, but that's an assumption. Sometimes those planes will have crashed BECAUSE they had burst into flame mid-air. How many times that happens we will never know, but I'm sure that whatever that number is, it too is rising. The same goes for some of the car crashes. Responders show up, the car's wrapped around a tree and burning and everybody's dead. They assume the crash caused the fire, but sometimes the crash will be the result of the car bursting into flame. Without witnesses or survivors, there's sometimes simply no way to know which occurred first, but you can be sure that at least some of the incidents involving burning cars wrapped around trees occurred because the car burst into flame and THEN crashed...

    Hull hits a triple. Moscow's planes regularly bursting into flames, while H2S is being detected blowing through the capital. All kinda vehicles going up in flames - EXPENSIVE stuff too, like farm equipment, ambulance and fire truck (wow)!

    Gotta feel sorry for those young kids dying. All kindsa accidents, many wildfires and collapsing structures. GEEZ!

    Volcanic activity not letting up. From MrMBB333, we learned that on July 19th ALL the planets in the solar system will be on the "same side" of the sun (within 180 degrees of each other) and that it's happened only 6 times in the past 120 years (and that earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur then), and it lasts until September! Look out, Earth!

    Let's see what's going on today.

    Well, Tom's going to see some local bands this (late) morning and early afternoon at CANAL DAY in Phoenixville - on land that's
    between the Susquehanna River and an old long canal that runs through the area (what am I NUTS?!).

    New growing and steaming cracks open up on Big Island as Kilauea volcano shows no signs of rest (pictures and videos)

    New huge cracks next to two small fissures technically considered part of fissure 10 up at the corner of Pomaikai and Malama are growing and now steaming. The cracks on these properties run parallel to each other approximately 100 ft wide at their widest point going in the direction straight down rift in the middle of the fissure line. [more]

    New rare hydrothermal field discovered near the Gigante Seamount in the Azores – This just shows how little we know about the deep sea, the largest ecosystem on our planet

    An international team of scientists has discovered a new hydrothermal field near the Gigante Seamount in the Azores, while surveying the largely untouched seas of the Azores, an archipelago in the mid-Atlantic which harbours some of the most important deep-sea ecosystems in the Atlantic Ocean. The newly discovered site, located on Gigante Seamount at 570 m depth and approximately 100 km from Faial island, is remarkable given its accessibility compared to other hydrothermal vent systems. This just shows how little we know about the deep sea, the largest ecosystem on our planet. [more; now we'll fuck that up too]

    Shockingly, these "business-friendly" policies which entailed tariffs and higher interest rates for the rest of the world, ended the global synchronized expansion dead in its tracks.

    Which comes as no surprise to the rest of the world. By the way, this is how to win a trade war sans copious bullshit.

  4. Energy-hungry aliens are snatching stars and storing them in mega-structures, says new study

    Alien civilizations may be forced to capture stars and harness their energy using ginormous structures - all to keep themselves alive in the cold, ever-expanding vastness of universe, a Fermilab cosmologist believes.

    Expansion of the universe, thought to be further accelerated by dark energy, is flinging matter apart, while galaxies are being pushed away from each other. This is a challenge alien technologies will have to deal with in order for them to survive, Dan Hooper, a senior Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory scientist, writes in a new study.

    The paper looks at the use of megastructures, popularly known as Dyson spheres, which may theoretically be built around stars to harvest their energy. But it goes further than that, arguing that the huge balls of gas will also have to be shifted in their course so as not to escape the energy-hungry aliens. [more]
