What the media fails to mention is that this is not uncommon and has happened before.

This is similar to the shark attack craze of a few years ago. The sharks weren't conspiring to attack like crazy during that Summer. They've been biting ankles, legs, and buttocks off of people for centuries. The hype was just a result of the extensive and sensationalized media coverage.

Cite examples where this has occurred before. I keep reading this excuse but i would like some documentation or links or anything to support it. If THIS(as in multiples of incidents within days of each other and all within a small radius) has happened before it would be front page news just like it is now.

Bird flu is not remotely the same thing.

Lol ... shark attack craze is truly the making of media, but in this case of the OP, the mainstream media isn't really even covering it, which makes it even more interesting.

TLDR, cite the instances it has happened before. And this is not normal in any way ...... this is not a natural thing I can sure tell you that.

So wouldn't any and all fish as well as birds flying and swimming through these zones afterward suffer the same fate? If they are indeed cold zones? That doesn't make sense to me unless they are finding everything swiming through those zones dead which i don't believe they are.

I don't care what they say, this is not normal and i'd bet on it. Besides they're just throwing stuff out there to explain it but they aren't exactly sure either until all of the dead stuff are studied i'd assume. I mean the firsrt article i read was "Preliminary studies showed the birds died from blunt force trauma". LOL they fell from the sky....

http://www.cnn.com/2011/US/01/03/ark...ment-123901497

thats where our scientists are at right about now.

If more birds and fish die later this week then I'll start freaking out... but for now I don't really care.

still very interesting that something like this could even happen.

It points to the possibility it isn't aliens, man made sinister chemicals, etc and to the possibility that it could just as easily be some type of natural occurrence. People should keep an open mind for now.
