Doomsday Clock predictions
« on: January 13, 2010, 06:20:00 AM »
The Doomsday Clock is gonna move Thursday at 10 am Eastern time.  What'cha think it'll do?

I think it's going back 1 minute to read 6 minutes to midnight.

What's the Doomsday Clock?  Find out at the ever-factual Wikipedia:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doomsday_Clock

while reality indicates it should move to microseconds before midnight,
i will agree with aaron, it will probably move towards, fuzzy-warm-feel-good.
after all, the frog is nice and warm before it is boiled to death.

I'm hoping the decision was already been made prior to the devastating earthquake in Haiti.  Although a natural disaster and not presumably due to climatic changes, it is difficult to have a fuzzy-warm-feel-good outlook with that tragedy.

my point was that we should not feel warm and fuzzy and good.
but that boiling frogs do.
and they die anyway.

Well, feel warm and fuzzy - it's 6 minutes to midnight.
