Or just a distraction for something bigger coming. This is really strange, I just can't believe that while at work, I had no clue that any of this was going on, and come home to discover all these wacko things going on.

I don't like it.

I would love to know what it IS
They all seem very sure what it ISN'T!

This truly is a very strange day ......

I don't know if this has been covered yet, but I vaguely remember something similar several years ago. It turned out that the source was the river.

This is getting really creepy real quick, today at around lunchtime in Glasgow (1.45pm) I was walking through the center and was a little surprised to see an ambulance just outside the subway, then I noticed three white vans already there about five feet from the ambulance,(they looked suspiciously like unmarked police vans) then two fire engines appear on the scene, as I kept walking up by the the entrance their was four police cars, it seemed like an obvious statement of a "police presence" just outside the subway, the officers were standing just outside the subway entrance looking edgy then they went down into the tube. I kept walking back to work thinking all these scenarios in my head terrorists? bomb scare? etc. then another car (unmarked looked like police had blue sirens, had no other distinguishible features) comes down a street a block away from the subway sirens on and cutting through the traffic, Id bet my house that it was heading for the subway. Anyway I had to get back to work... as soon as I left work I could see that the street I walk down (on my way home) was cordoned off with police tape, though it wasnt stopping people just walking up and down anyway, it seemed that they were only concerned about one side of the road (not minding if people walked up and down the otherside) and did not want traffic going through that area, I noticed that a small gas van was parked on the otherside of the street (the same side as the police contingent, this has now after reading the previous posts got me a little spooked.

When I saw the magnitude of the emergency services outside the subway I was expecting the police to be trying to "evacuate" and tell people not to go into the subway, but they didnt and people continued to go in. When I got home I was expecting something on the news aswell but nothing? this I found surprising and frustrating as I have never seen anything like it, and I thought it would at least break the Scottish news.

SO was a pretty big player in the early part of this thread--anyone heard anything from him recently? He doesn't seem to have posted much since this morning.

I'm sure he's got work and everything, but it's still a little curious...
(Then again, so's a lot of stuff today...)

He's probably just busy at work...

In any event, I live and work in Manhattan and just arrived home via public transportation.

Everything seemed pretty normal to me.

Hopefully it's not a biological weapon or superbug.
One that takes months to incubate in our systems before everybody drops dead from it. We'll find out a year from now it was some deadly plague.

Other than whats been said there seems to be not much more info that we already have up here.

Still no sign of what it is,

Im just glad our NewYorkers here are all ok

I really appreciate the checkins that people from NYC, Austin and Glasgow have posted. (Hope I didn't miss anyone.) This is indeed very, very strange. I hope all of you New Yorkers are all OK and that nothing happens to you. Please keep us posted, if you can. Thanks.

You know, you can get your hands on tanks of mercaptan if you really have the mind to.

A tank of mercaptan marker gas would cause hella panic, just like this is doing. We're all trained to react to it from childhood. It's easy to just spew some into the air and everyone downwind flips out. If I wanted to cause a mass distraction, it would be a perfect trick. Easy to disguise, hard to trace, lingers for days.

don't mean to be off topic but reports of gas leaks all over the states plus UK, Aus and earthquakes and volcanos too. Is something BIG happening???

As I posted in another thread regarding these incidents...

Ok people calm down, lets not get paranoid. Stuff that is happening today, while wierd, happens all the time all over the world. The fact that a few major incidents (smell in ny, bomb scare in Miami, tanker truck leak in Tx) happened on the same day is making the news because of the conincidental nature, but that kind of stuff happens all the time. Now people are actively looking for any little story that has the remotest similarity and is thinking it's some sort of worldwide related event.

Relax people, most of these events will turn out to be nothing, and everyone will be fine.

yes agreed about that but that seismic data sure looks very strange

I mean some of it looks really off the scale!

Yes. They're happening all over the world. But not in the same country, in the same time. Too many interesting things are happening (I've already posted my notices to the "Chemical Cloud Moving Toward Houston" topic. See my guesses there.).

Oh. And by the way, the Russians have also closed all the oil pipelines, which gave the oil to Hungary, Germany, Poland, Ukraine, Belarus and some other countries. So if everything goes wrong, these countries need to live on their oil reserves, which is usually 90-100 days. But for example Poland have 70 days of reserves. Which is not much. And this happened only under one day. So, if the upper mentioned theories are correct, that the others have mentioned and something big have started, this could go to this rooster too, because if someone knows, that something will happen, that logical step is to stop to supply other countries. One country, especially the Russians suddenly suspending the oil to the members of the European Union. Strange coincidence, don't you think?

I'm in Jersey, just across the river from the city (nice view)

NOTHING out of the ordinary happened here today. no sirens, no odors, no media hype, zip.

of course, if it were too late and we were all walking dead, why hype about it, right? *laughs*

hang it up, see what tomorrow brings...

Whoa whoa whoa... New York City has a strange odor in the air?!


That place always smells like garbage.

*BEEEEP* ...this is a test of the emergency New World Order takeover.. don't be alarmed. It is only a test... *BEEEEP*

1950 - Department of Defense begins plans to detonate nuclear weapons in desert areas and monitor downwind residents for medical problems and mortality rates.

1951 - Department of Defense begins open air tests using disease-producing bacteria and viruses. Tests last through 1969 and there is concern that people in the surrounding areas have been exposed.

1953 - U.S. military releases clouds of zinc cadmium sulfide gas over Winnipeg, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Fort Wayne, the Monocacy River Valley in Maryland, and Leesburg, Virginia. Their intent is to determine how efficiently they could disperse chemical agents.

1952 - Joint Army-Navy-CIA experiments are conducted in which tens of thousands of people in New York and San Francisco are exposed to the airborne germs Serratia marcescens and Bacillus glogigii.

1955 - The CIA, in an experiment to test its ability to infect human populations with biological agents, releases a bacteria withdrawn from the Army's biological warfare arsenal over Tampa Bay, Fl.

1956 - U.S. military releases mosquitoes infected with Yellow Fever over Savannah, Ga and Avon Park, Fl. Following each test, Army agents posing as public health officials test victims for effects.

1968 - CIA experiments with the possibility of poisoning drinking water by injecting chemicals into the water supply of the FDA in Washington, D.C.

1977 - Senate hearings on Health and Scientific Research confirm that 239 populated areas had been contaminated with biological agents between 1949 and 1969. Some of the areas included San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Key West, Panama City, Minneapolis, and St. Louis.

1987 - Department of Defense admits that, despite a treaty banning research and development of biological agents, it continues to operate research facilities at 127 facilities and universities around the nation.

1990 - More than 1500 six-month old black and hispanic babies in Los Angeles are given an "experimental" measles vaccine that had never been licensed for use in the United States. CDC later admits that parents were never informed that the vaccine being injected to their children was experimental.

1994 - With a technique called "gene tracking," Dr. Garth Nicolson at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX discovers that many returning Desert Storm veterans are infected with an altered strain of Mycoplasma incognitus, a microbe commonly used in the production of biological weapons. Incorporated into its molecular structure is 40 percent of the HIV protein coat, indicating that it had been man-made.

1994 - Senator John D. Rockefeller issues a report revealing that for at least 50 years the Department of Defense has used hundreds of thousands of military personnel in human experiments and for intentional exposure to dangerous substances. Materials included mustard and nerve gas, ionizing radiation, psychochemicals, hallucinogens, and drugs used during the Gulf War.

1995 - Dr. Garth Nicolson, uncovers evidence that the biological agents used during the Gulf War had been manufactured in Houston, TX and Boca Raton, Fl and tested on prisoners in the Texas Department of Corrections.

Has anyone at all thought about the extremely strange weather we been having as well nationwide or globally for that matter?

I know in the Detroit area we haven't had any snow at all, temperatures have been recorded breaking highs.

I know NYC was in the low 70's which is unheard of. There has to be some type of correlation between all of this. I don't know what yet but there is.

911 to 187

could be a very parnoid thought! Maybe not!

911: lot of people called for help!

187: are alot of people going to get killed?

You Hit the nail squarely on the head EX

Though counter intuitive, logic dictates that although they are very sure what it is not, that does not mean they know what it is...

Remember Rumsfelds Three Knowns?? - Hate him or Love him, the infamous 'knowns' statement was simple genius, never a truer word has been said.

This is what BBC news reports on the Mayor of NY announcement...

New York probes 'gas-like odour'

Mr Bloomberg said there were no indications of high levels of natural gas on New York's energy network.

That's alright then... safe to switch the lights on, strike a match or start the car then.... it won't ignite....

"It may just be an unpleasant smell, but at this point we do not know any more than that," he told a news conference, adding that investigations were continuing.

So.... He knows that he doesn't like the smell.... but has no idea what it is... logical so far....

"The one thing we are confident about is, it is not dangerous," he said.

This statement is totally flawed logic and very telling.... Throwing the baby out with the bathwater....

How can they say it's not dangerous if you don't know what it is????

In addition this story I feel is MASSIVE news and yet it has been totally muted in reports.... Then to distract people even more... news of USA air strikes in Somalia against you know who.... al-Qaeda!!!

US launches air strike in Somalia

The Curtain is well and truly open on the 'Wizard of OZ' style Bush Administration!!!!

Keep your eyes open and your ears to the ground...

Don't mean to frighten anyone... but the main way of distributing any chemical into the body of a mass of people is by introducing a smell...

People can't help but taking a strong smelling wiff.......

I personally believe that This event is in fact a response to a terrorist threat of chemical or biological weapon...

I believe that this so called Strange smelling gas is in fact some form of counter chemical or biological agent... designed to protect or Prepare its populace of an impending threatened chemical or biological attack...

I believe that the other events were test runs to see if the system works....

What ever the case maybe… this is fascinating to watch unfold… Is London Next???

All the best,

NeoN HaZe.
