    Is the end of the world nigh? Atomic scientists set to make 'major announcement' about Doomsday Clock

    the story, with a bright array of pics, charts, sidebars, etc., at Daily Mail link above

    Earlier WS threads:

    Doomsday clock moved closer to midnight (2012)

    Doomsday clock moved forward... (2007)

    Obligatory obscure great song reference:

    Obligatory cultural n.b.:

    Domesday Book (Wiki)

    And 2012. I can't get excited about a symbolic clock. If we're doomed, knowing about it won't prevent it.
    Symbolic clock was established by Manhattan Project scientists in 1947

    So, first they invent the atomic bomb and then they invent a symbolic clock to beat us over the head with?
