Hello everybody,

has anyone noticed how crazy a Year it has been so far? I'm 30yrs old and cannot remember such a bad year thus far.

Lets look at things from Month to Month as it's happened -

JANUARY 2010 -

7.0 Earthquake kills over 230,000 people in Haiti


8.8 Earthquake Strikes off Chile Coast killing over 497 people

MARCH 2010 -

South Korean Ship Sunk - North Korea later Blamed for Torpedoeing

APRIL 2010 -

Polish President and Many High Ranking Officials Killed in Plane Crash

Eyjafjallajökull Volcano Eruption in Iceland causes huge disruptions across Europe

Deepwater Horizon Disaster in Gulf Of Mexico

MAY 2010 -

110 Billion Euro Package Finally Agreed on for Greece after Financial Meltdown and Riots

Libyian Air Crash Kills 103 People

Indian Air Crash Kills 158 People

JUNE 2010 -

Israel Attacks Turkish Humanitarian Ship Killing 15 People

Thats it so far folks. It's been a shocking year indeed. Some of these events are ongoing as we speak, such as the Israeli Attack, the Korean Crisis and of course, the Deepwater Horizon Spill.

Iran is also a huge player in the News so far in 2010, but it's hard to link them to 1 particular month when there are stories on the news every day about it!!!

Also, it should be noted that there is still a financial crisis going on and that the Euro in particular has been in the news a lot over the last wee while.

Maybe we are just more in tune with the news these days and what's happening around us, but it seems like there has been an awful lot of bad stuff happening and it seems to be getting worse.

Many threads here on ATS are talking of WW3 being around the corner and with some of these ongoing events, one really has to wonder....

Would be good to know what the rest of you think....

You missed today's new volcanic eruption. Add NINETEEN potentially hazardous NEO flybys this month.
Yes, it's getting worse, day by day.

read what Nikola Stojanvic and Pavel Globa have to say .they are serbia's and russia's top astrolgers .

particularly, Nikola stojanvic believes that the cardinal climax will end with a thermonuclear ,bio war between Russia and USA , which Russia will win (2011 to 2014 time period) aand USA will totally be destroyed in ww3.

There is open talk of world war 3 b/w Russia and USA in Russia in news channels(not russian MSM) ,and they believe that Russian govt has several hidden super weapons ,as Russia's prime symbol is Neptune, the master of secrets and Pluto ,the master of death,destruction and super weaponry

It can get a lot worse. Maybe if everyone pulled together and started to fix the world problems, it could get a lot better...

That said... 2010 looks pretty horrid so far.

You know I was just thinking that earlier. 2010 just feels bad. The world has so many issues on the stove right now that one of them is eventually going to get too far and catch on fire.

I mean the war drums for N. Korea, Iran, and the new set with Israel/Turkey alone are scary enough. Add in a large oil spill, political scandals galore, and enough notable disasters to make you depressed and its enough to just turn off the news altogether.

That being said, while a lot has been happening, you have to admit that some of these are problems that have just been carrying over from past years. It is just that they are getting ready to boil over.

Going to be a really interesting (or depressing) summer.

Plus this of today :


PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, June 1 (Itar-Tass) - The Bezymyanny volcano on the Kamchatka Peninsula has started to erupt, the Kamchatka branch of the geophysical service of the Russian Academy of Sciences told Itar-Tass.

The intensification of the giant mount’s activity was registered at 00:30, local time (16:30, MSK on May 31). The most active phase lasted for 20 minutes, scientists say. During this period the volcano was spewing ash that stretched in a plume towards the Sea of Okhotsk (west of the volcano). According to specialists, the ash plume has stretched for 20 kilometres. A small ash fall was registered in the Kozyrevsk settlement (40 km from the volcano) on Kamchatka. A hot rock and mud flow came down the volcano.

The aviation code Red has been given to the volcano. All concerned services have been informed about the danger that the volcanic ash may present for aircraft, the Kamchatka Volcanic Eruption Response Team (KVERT) reported.

The eruption’s intensity has subsided, as compared with the initial phase, but the giant mount maintains activity, specialists noted.

Bezymyanny is one of 29 active volcanoes of Kamchatka. Its height is about 2,800 metres above sea level. Its eruptions are explosive. They occur one or two times a year and may last from several hours to several days. In recent years scientists have managed to predict the periods of its activity intensification rather correctly.

Bezymyanny is an active stratovolcano in Kamchatka. The volcano’s name means “nameless,” and it was considered to be extinct before the 1955 eruption.

Bezymyanny is located on the southeast slope of the extinct volcano Kamen. Its greatest eruption happened in 1955-1956 which lowered the top of the mountain by about 200 m (600 ft). The surrounding landscape of the mountain was changed by a lateral blast that flattened the area with thick ash and pyroclastic flow-like materials.

The 1956 eruption of Bezymianny was similar to the May 18, 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens in the United States. During the 1956 eruption, a debris avalanche removed 0.5 cubic kilometres of material and also produced a “directed blast” as magma became exposed at the surface. A horseshoe-shaped crater was also formed, although it has been largely filled. Then the volcano that was 3,080 metres high, during a short period of time became lower by 280 metres. Its recent eruption was observed last winter.

The volcano is located in the central part of the Klyuchevskaya group 385 kilometres northeast of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. The Nearby populated localities are Klyuchi and Kozyrevsk.

Damn it Grant. My experience has been that everytime I was down and asked if it could get any worse. It just got that much more worse. It's as if,
when I had thought, I finally hit rock bottom. Karma smacked me in the face, jerked me around, and showed me how deep the rabbit hole really could go.

The lesson....
It can always get worse.

As for what ever it means to whomever.
I know of some pretty damn good sources, that say we have entered the tribulation.

Oops did I write that out loud?

Don't forget the Wall street journal predicted DOW crash to 6600 last week, and Celente is predicting riots throughout Europe as the Euro collapses and then it's WW3 as the dollar collapses and revolution in the US.

The second half of this year will make these tragic events so far look like nothing. But not to worry, the survivors will get a nice piece of the pie.

Just sit back, grab a Coke Zero and enjoy the ride. As of now the news headlines are more interesting than anything on TV. I can just sit here reading this forum for hours and not get bored.

Intense time to be alive, that is for sure. Who knows how the rest of 2010 will turn out, but I will be paying close attention.

posted on Jun, 1 2010 @ 02:02 AM
Grant, like Randyvs said above, it's always possible that things could get worse. While I understand the philosophical need to ask the question, it's quite possibly the worst question to ask. It's one of those questions the universe seems to listen for

Maybe so, but if i did'nt i'm sure someone else would have!!

Like an above poster said though, some of these issues have been brewing a while now and it seems they are coming to a head, like they had to sometime I guess.

You forgot the austerity measures that are to be taken in many european countries , frozen of pays or pension benefits or even cuts.

This may be a decisive factor for our future as it will create for sure big tensions and pressures with the fed up population of Europe

Stalin would like a word with you friend:

"One death is a tragedy; one million is a statistic."

Death is so easily spoken of in numbers, isn't it? "I don't care about them because they are .000000-" Shutup. Suppose one of those people you so easily wrote off as insignificant was significant. To YOU. Not so easy to play the edgy tough guy anymore is it?

People dying has nothing to do with our personal doom, but every unnecessary death of our fellow man should be given more respect than a damn number.
