The Week in Apocalypse: Wakes to Light the Fire

The backlog just keeps growing so I'm going to try to get some of this information out there as quickly as I can.  There is so much going on I can hardly keep track of it anymore.

The normies out there don't seem to be paying any of this any mind, confident that life will continue being as boring and dreary as it always is.  

Well, odds are that it will.  But the happy little hedonists at Pompeii and Herculanum, screwing and puking the days away, never thought their party would end either.

You only get to be wrong once.

The big story out of Hawaii was the civil defense employee who triggered the missile alert refusing to cooperate with an federal investigation of the event. I don't blame them. It all sounds a bit Kafkaesque, to be frank.

Oh hey there, Tulsi-- looking fine, girl! How's the Krishna Consciousness cult coming along? 

Plus, I have a pet theory; I don't think that was a screwup at all, but was in fact a drill. 

It goes like this; the exercise was announced as a missile attack so folks wouldn't do what they usually do during a drill, such as vaping, texting and scratching their balls. Instead, they freaked out and tore ass all over the place. 

Very instructive for those Quantum AIs.

The fact that there was a similar event in Japan shortly after passes muster with my confirmation bias.

But then there's also the fact that it came in the middle of the Ring of Fire being set alight. Quite a bit seems to be going on there, all kinds of earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanos and other miserable shit.

I'm sure I don't need to remind you, but if you're living in that area make sure you have a bugout bag packed and reliable transportation inland. Keep your car gassed and your devices charged. Might not be a bad idea to invest in a decent first aid kit as well.

A public service reminder from your pals here at Secret Sun Central.

Don't forget that Mount Agung is getting cranky now too. And that Agung is of the highest possible synchromystic resonance, being a stand-in for Mount Meru:

And if Sumeru and Sineru sound an awful lot like Sumer and Shinar to you, it so happens you're not alone in that.

And at the risk of spreading "fearporn" (which no longer means "charlatans conjuring up dopey scare stories" but translates these days to "hey man, don't go harshing my cushy, upper-middle class idyll with your negativity, OK? Chapel Perilous, man!"), there were predictions that we could soon be seeing exactly what we're seeing now.

For those of you keeping score at home, this here bullshit is what fearporn actually looks like. 

And this too. Do you expect anything but naked manipulation from Jezebel and its sister sites? 

On the other hand, we have this bullshit as well. Which actually makes me a little more nervous than I'd normally be about all this. Especially since scientists spent the beginning of the year running around screaming that 2018 was going to be an especially bad year for earthquakes.

Make up your fucking mind, Poindexter.

But yeah, the Ring of Fire is most certainly burn-burn-burning these days...

I'm hearing whispers arising from the Information Underground that all this may not be coincidence, that an anomalous comet (the unmemorably-named 41P/Tuttle-Giacobini-Kres�k) might be shooting out electricity or plasma or whatever and as such is fucking our shit up.

Bonus unsettling sync: Tuttle means "Thor's Caudron."

Not only did scientists warn us about earthquakes this year-- before changing their minds, apparently-- so did mystics Nostradamus and Baba Vanga.
