Ian Mccaffrey works in Waterston and said some birds fell out of the sky onto his car just after he heard a large 'electrical-type' bang. 

He said: 'When I left work last night I heard a bang and then a load of birds landed on my car.' 

'Every now and again you will hear a bang that is coming from what I think is a crow-scarer that farmers use. 

'However this bang was more like an electrical bang - not quite as loud as lightning but similar.'

It sounds as if the lightening strikes were occuring BEFORE the eruption...

Tonga underwater volcanic eruption triggered nearly 590,000 lightning strikes that were 'unlike anything on record', incredible animation reveals

  • An incredible animation has been created based on data from a global lightning detection network 
  • On January 13, a blast above the surface caused a major lightning event, which lasted through until January 14
  • Then, on January 15 the massive eruption triggered a wave of almost 400,000 strikes in just six hours
  • In total there were almost 590,000 lighting strikes over the three days – significantly more than the next largest event, the eruption of Anak Krakatau in Indonesia in 2018.

On January 13, a blast above the surface caused a major lightning event, which lasted through until January 14.

Then, on January 15 the massive eruption of the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai underwater volcano triggered a wave of almost 400,000 strikes in just six hours.

In total there were almost 590,000 lighting strikes over the three days – significantly more than the next largest event, the eruption of Anak Krakatau in Indonesia in 2018.

I was standing in line at the bank yesterday,the only one without a mask,anyway they had an idiot box up on the wall with the ABC news playing,on it was an expert on mental health during the pandemic promoting  the drugs that can be used to help combat problems,I wasn't really listening however at the end of the segment the head on a stick (news reader ) mentioned that this is the ABC's new mental health initiative to which I started laughing as the irony was overwhelming. First you scare the shit out of everyone with fear mongering ,help create the problem  then hold yourself up as a savior.

Of course no one else got the joke ,how could they ? as I said they were all wearing masks

West Midlands hit by earthquake

Quote

An earthquake has shaken homes across the West Midlands.

The British Geological Survey (BGS) said the 2.8 magnitude quake hit Walsall at a depth of 4.35 miles (7km) at 22:59 GMT on Monday.

It said the effects could be felt over a 12-mile (20km) radius from the epicentre, with tremors detected in Birmingham, Wolverhampton and Dudley.

One resident told the BGS it felt "like a wardrobe had fallen over or an explosion blast against the window".

The quake was approximately eight miles (12.8km) east of the 4.7 magnitude one that hit Dudley in 2002 before being felt across most of England.

It couldn't have been that bad as I slept through it. 🤪

 

While this part of England shouldn't really suffer many earthquakes, being far from the edge of any tectonic plates, it can't be any coincidence surely that the UK has been battered by consecutive storms in recent days, caused by several low pressure systems moving across from the Atlantic.

From Breitbart:

Fast Food Worker Survives After Being Shot in Face Over $3 Burger

From the article:

A father working at a George Webb restaurant was shot in the face when twin sisters became disgruntled because their order was missing a three-dollar burger.

 

The father, 26-year-old Anthony Rodriguez, lost teeth and had his spine fractured in the incident.

WISN reports that twin sisters, Breanta and Bryanna Johnson, became upset over an “incomplete order” around midnight on January 30. One of the sisters allegedly went to the car and retrieved a firearm, then returned and shot Rodriguez; the other sister allegedly punched him.

 

Rodriquez said, “I do remember just laying on the ground and just bleeding out…I was in so much shock. I don’t really remember being in much pain, but I remember kind of internally freaking out and being very scared and just telling myself, ‘Wow, I’m probably gonna die here.’”

 

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel noted that the bullet that struck Rodriguez “went through his lip on the right side of his face. It knocked out several teeth, hit his tongue and fractured parts of his spinal column.”

 

The Johnson sisters face up to 65 years in prison if found guilty.

I remember the one around 2002 and another around 2009. Our house shook in Birmingham and I assumed it was a gas explosion because of works outside our front garden.

 

Our neighbour was Iranian and said it was a baby tremor. They have a history of monsters over there.

 

I never noticed the most recent one at all.

Gas Fracking?

We're back over $100 a barrel oil, at the moment. The oil price is not near previous peaks of 2008 and 1980 and a long way away when inflation is factored in.

 

M5 Petrol pumps running dry as Russian invasion of Ukraine sparks price rise - live updates

People are being urged not to panic buy as the cost of fuel reaches record highs

 

Petrol pumps appear to be running dry as the Russian invasion of Ukraine leads to a fuel price rise.

 

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said one of the consequences of Putin sending his armed force into Ukraine is a 'spike' in oil prices. And two petrol stations on key motorway routes for Bristol drivers have completely run out of fuel.

 

There is no fuel available at the lorry pumps at Sedgemoor Services on the M5 in both directions between J21 and J22.

 

And there is no petrol at the Michaelwood Services on the M5 Southbound either, which is located between J13 and J14.

Don't know how true this is, but heard from a friend that he spoke with a courier and they've been informed to expect fuel shortages from Sunday. Hmm let's see..

Cheers for this mate. Got 40 Gilly cans of fuel stored in the kitchen.

Looks like she's trying to restrain herself from punching him in the windpipe.

So there is an imminent cyber attack according to today's headlines.

 

And Mastercards are not working across the UK.

 

I reckon this was a pre-run of what's to come because a VPN service is also having an issue and lucky for me I had another back-up.

 

Get your cash out.

I saw a black woman filled up her large shopping trolley with bottled water the other day. She literally cleared the shelf. 😱
