“Away from midnight … with all the extensive spraying they’ve been doing in the sky, I’m pretty sure that’s kind of curbing global warming.”

"...extensive spraying in the sky..."? Shiny side out, dude.

Did they ask anyone who doesn't look like a modern-day hippy? Well, the first guy kind of passes.

I have to go with Iron Maiden on this one: "Two Minutes to Midnight"

Seriously, though if we move this historic symbol (originally intended to indicate the likelihood of nuclear war) closer to midnight due to the supposed threat of "climate change", then it's significance ranks somewhere way down there with the Nobel prize.

Are you ready for the judgment? Are you ready for that terrible swift sword? Are you ready for Armageddon? Are you ready for the day of the Lord?

My Doomsday Clock has its hands in its trousers.

Hands on the clock? I've met kids who can't say what clockwise or counter-clockwise are 'cause all they know is digital.

Tuesday..... my clock just shows the day of the week.

Bob, no it wasn't me, I just got on and I have no idea what he wrote. Your comment was really out of line. I believe that life on this planet will end when the sun goes nova, whenever that end. Lurking? Come on now!

Thank His Noodlily Apendage that Patrick is a musician. I think I would have been more terrified if he had stated his profession as "brain surgeon" or "rocket scientist."

Hands? It went digital years ago and has been blinking 12:00 because nobody knows how to reset it after the power went out.

I predict that it will move past 12:00, and that they will then realize that the clock was running on military time and so we have quite a ways to go.

It will have to either go forward or be close to "doomsday," otherwise the doomsdayers would have no reason to exist.

Who cares? I don't! Life is to be lived, not regretted by worrying about when it will end. It will end when it is your time to end. If doomsday comes, it comes. Nothing we can do to stop it is there? I think humans have created enough havoc in this world - perhaps doomsday is our just cause... In the meantime I LIVE - because I'm ALIVE!!

I see it was moved back a minute. Surprised me.
