Event Update For 2018-07-29

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. okay, what's up with the forum? Im not being able to log in and all the comments are gone.....

    I saw this story on fakebook on Sunday and even posted JJFH as a possible reason and as you may already be aware, I was immediately informed it was meth and I needed to wake the "F" up....needless to say, I still think it H2S with a side of gmo food/vaccines/meth/pharmo's....whatever, there are so many things that could be in play at this stage, it's anyone's guess. Here is the story, it was stated by witnesses that the guy was naked, but that's not in the story.

    Yesterday was a very weird weather day in my area, thought I was a goner around 3:30 due to being caught out in some fierce straight line winds with monsoonal rains.

  2. There have been way too many events where people acted crazy, especially while naked, and drugs were blamed, and then it turned out they had no drugs in their systems. Both of the naked face-eaters had no drugs in their systems. So when people reflexively blame drugs then I figure the odds are that they are oblivious of all of the events where drugs were blamed initially and then it turned out not to have anything to do with drugs. Not really much one can do to help people determined to remain oblivious. They'll tend to die sooner rather than later if they remain that oblivious, but if they don't have a problem with that, well, okie dokie, not much else to say.

  3. We'll need a ruling on whether that ferry en route to Hull medical episode counts as a Hull incident.

    All the money being thrown at controlling the many wildfires is literally money going up in smoke.

  4. I would count that ferry as a Hull incident, but a case could be made either way. If I were interested in reading about Hull-related incidents, I would want to know about that one.

  5. As for the forums, I posted about it a few days ago - ZetaBoards sold out to a company called TapaTalk, and theoretically the forums and user accounts will be transferred to:

    As of this morning, the Zeta forums still exist at:

    So yeah, this is gonna be confusing until the Zeta forums are copied over. Nothing I can do about it, alas. Use the Zeta forums until they disappear. No clue how long that might be though, but theoretically all the posts and use accounts should be copied over.
