Event Update For 2019-06-09

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.

2019-06-09 - Man, 61, has 'medical event' and dies in the water during swimming portion of triathlon in Lake Monona (Wisconsin), man in his 30s has 'medical event' too, in critical condition:

Quote: "One person has died, and a second remains in critical condition after being rescued from Lake Monona during the Ironman 70.3 triathlon Sunday morning, according to the Madison Fire Department. Officials say the department was notified that an athlete was found unresponsive in the water around 8 a.m., and in need of advanced life support from paramedics."

Quote: "About an hour later, MFD was notified that a second unresponsive patient was being pulled to shore for similar emergency medical treatment."

Quote: "The medical examiner's office says preliminary autopsy results confirm that McCulloch's death 'was consistent with an accidental drowning due in part to a medical event' Additional tests are underway."

Quote: "A second swimmer, believed to be in his late 30s, also was taken out of the water after suffering what was believed to be a medical event and was taken to the hospital in critical condition, Fire Department spokeswoman Cynthia Schuster said Monday."

Note: So one man had a 'medical event' and died after getting into the water, and another man had a 'medical event' and is in critical condition after getting into the water. Wouldn't a rational person suspect that there is some relation? Like, say, with the water.

Just a week ago, a man, firefighter, 36, went into cardiac arrest and died in the water during the swimming part of a triathlon in coastal Cape May (New Jersey), and another man, 59, had a 'medical issue' and died in the water during the swimming part of a triathlon in Lake Mills (Wisconsin), both events mentioned in the 2019-06-02 update. Three weeks before that, a man, 40, had a heart attack in the water and died during the swimming part of a triathlon at Hopkinton State Park (Massachusetts), mentioned in the 2019-05-11 update.

Obviously, these are just some of the people dying in the water during triathlons, which doesn't include any of the people dying in swimming pools, or the people dropping dead at beachside resorts, sometimes in multiples, or the people dying while diving, or the people dying at beaches or in ponds or lakes or rivers or creeks or streams, etc, etc. From the full hypothesis: "Humans will sicken and die, especially in, near, or downwind of low-lying areas such as bodies of water."

2019-06-09 - Man goes into cardiac arrest in swimming pool at recreational facility in Tamworth (Britain):

The mass of seaweed-like algae is three or four times the size of the city of Merida, satellite images show. It already has hit Cancun and other beach spots along the Caribbean side of the Yucatan Peninsula."

Quote: "When the stuff rots, it releases toxic hydrogen-sulfide gas, making seashores smell like rotting eggs. Its effects on tourism in the Caribbean have been catastrophic. 2018 was a record year for sargassum blooms."

  1. Hey Jonny, Fran, Mike D., Tom N., LL, Terry, FezzedOne and all other readers of JJFH today.

    Vague, undefined 'medical episodes' continue to plague drivers of vehicles all over the place. Planes keep having a hard time taking off, staying aloft, and landing. Both running and parked vehicles keep bursting into flames. Homes keep exploding, and if you learn nothing else from JJFH, you need to STOP SWIMMING and water-related activities, especially in India!

  6. I'm very surprised that neither the woman nor her kayak have been found at Lake Pflugerville after a day and a half of searching. A helicopter was even employed in the search.

    This lake is very small in the midst of a suburban neighborhood. How does a kayak just disappear? They do float after all. Even if the strong storm winds blew it out of the lake it couldn't have traveled that far. Estimates of around 45 mph winds from the storm. Not even hurricane force.

    Very bizarre.

  7. Skinny alien thing looks pretty legit to me. Didn't see anything wrong with the shadows. They don't align perfectly with the car because the light is right against the house and the 'whatever it is' is closer to the house than the car. Doesn't look like it could be human with the super-skinny limbs and weird head. Doesn't look like a puppet - nobody's that good. Soooo...

    1. You're kidding I hope.

      It's a kid who is made up very well. This was in Southern CA. Let's see....what is in SC? Oh yeah, Hollywood and tons of people who know how to make fantasy look real.

    2. Yeah, I looked at it again. I think it might be a girl, but man, that has gotta be one of the skinniest girls outside of the mud-cookie-eating areas of Africa!

    3. Get that girl some Twinkies, stat! (Do they still have those?)

    4. Well you need to get out more. I've seen a few little boys, not just girls, that skinny just this past year alone. In fact when I was under the age of 13 I was extremely skinny. My arms barely made a shadow.

  8. Here's another guy who mysteriously died in the Dominican Republic:

    Quote: "The couple had vacationed more than a dozen times in the Dominican Republic over the years, and "there were no issues" on their most recent trip, McCoy said, until the afternoon of July 13, when Harrison left his wife and 12-year-old son at the pool after telling them he didn't feel well."

    He left them at the POOL. So HE was at the pool, then he got sick and died. Sounds very much like that superstar Olympic swimmer guy, age 26, who felt ill after being in a swimming pool in Florida earlier this year then got out, went to the locker room and dropped dead.

  9. Also, I checked and that was Friday the 13th. Not that that has anything to do with anything - but it does add a little macabre touch to that death.

  10. The second person who had a 'medical event' in the triathlon in Lake Monona has died:

    The authorities might wanna start practicing saying 'We believe the deaths are unrelated' with a straight face for when there are six or ten people who die after entering the water.

  11. Yeah. even 2 is pushing it statistically, for people fit enough to do Triathlons.

    Vatican announces new changes to the Lord's prayer

    Our Father or mother or non specific gender,
    who art in heaven, zion, nirvana, valhalla, moksha,
    hallowed be thy username, handle, avatar;
    thy kingdom come, or go if you wish - it's non contractual;
    thy will be done, but not binding,
    on earth as it is in heaven, zion, nirvana, valhalla, moksha.
    Give us this day, our daily gluten free bread/rice cake;
    and forgive us our credit rating
    as we forgive banking institutions who trespassed against us;
    and lead us not into the property market again,
    but deliver us from the mainstream media.
