Event Update For 2018-09-21

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.

  2. North Carolina Flooding Soaks Federal Taxpayers All Over Again

    Since 1978, 120 homes in the town of 1,600 people have cost federal taxpayers $13.4 million in National Flood Insurance Program payouts, according to data the Natural Resources Defense Council obtained from the Federal Emergency Management Agency; 36 received more money than their total value. Five of those homes have gotten federal flood insurance payments ten times or more, including one that received money 15 times.

    The result: homes that flood keep getting rebuilt with public money, only to flood again. That leaves people living in vulnerable areas who might rather receive money to move away -- and the flood insurance program, already more than $20 billion in debt, going deeper underwater. [more]

    British psychic says motorway fatalities 'due to ghosts of Roman soldiers'

    An accident-prone stretch of the M6 in Cheshire sees more crashes than other sections of the road because it is haunted by ghosts of Roman soldiers, a psychic has claimed.

    A series of strange phenomena have been reported by motorists between junction 16 and 19, including phantom lorries, spectral hitchhikers and sightings of legionnaires.

    And Mike Brooker says the disturbance caused by a £250million upgrade project could be to blame. He said a Roman burial ground in the area of the roadworks may have awoken 2,000-year-old spirits which now haunt motorists and cause crashes. [listen up Native Americans - this might work!]

    "There is no clear evidence either way to support or substantiate these claims but what is clear is that something is very wrong to cause so many accidents on what is to all intents and purposes and fairly straight stretch of road.

    "I 'personally' believe there is something supernatural that has attached itself to this particular stretch of motorway... when 'science' holds its hands up and is at a complete loss to explain this plethora of accidents/incidents between junctions 17 and 19 of the M6; there is perhaps an alternate explanation."
