What about the crazy weather in places beating records of all written history before the internet? Also, the birds, don't you think that would have happened somehwere and be documented somewhere? The earthquakes are at an unprecedented levels (so I hear) and we've been keeping track of those for years. I am curious to see earthquake history to see what average earthquakes per year are throughout the past. Just to see if they really truly are happening at record frequency. Crazy sounds, shaking, etc? The worldwide riots/protesting? We should be able to dig up this information somewhere if it has been happening at least within the past 100ish years, no?
I agree the internet is changing the way information is delivered...but the internet was around even 15 years ago and I don't remember hearing about all this stuff? Even 7 years ago when youtube came around. Still not really a whole lot that I can remember until a couple years ago.
I want to make it clear I am so completely totally open to hearing evidence against all of this (in fact I welcome it, because it's pretty nuts).
I'm mostly just calling it as I see it. I hear a lot of people say "This is normal, this has always happened."
Yet, I haven't seen much data to support that tbh.
Also, I gave you a star because you have a fair point. Curious to see the data though.
I too believe these events have always happened, but this is the YEAR 2012! If nothing else, most of us are very aware of that, which makes for heightened awareness to all these events going on around us. It would be interesting to check back over the past 20 years or more to see how many strange events we actually missed due to the fact that we just didn't pay attention...since it wasn't a "banner" year! /editby]

Mystery surrounds the discovery of dozens of dead starfish washed up on a beach.
Sheena Green was walking along the shore when she found between 20 and 30 of the creatures.
The tide was coming in when Ms Green saw the dead starfish at the edge of the water in Workington.

Even if this sort of this is average on planet Earth and we're just becoming more aware of it due to the internet age, it should NOT be average. Our increased awareness gives us more responsibility. I'm working towards a better world in my own way. Surrendering to the "it's always been this way so it's ok" attitude is not very conductive towards growth and betterment.
