The Doomsday Clock: Change It Back
MOTUS A.D. ^ | 6-13-18 | MOTUS

“In 2017, the clock moved from three minutes to midnight to two-and-a-half minutes to midnight. The Bulletin cites the rise of nationalism, Donald Trump's comments over nuclear weapons and the threat of an arms race between the US and Russia. The year was also the first time a fraction was used in the time.” – Wired 

By the same time in 2018, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists saw fit to nudge the clock even closer to the hour of the apocalypse:

In moving the clock 30 seconds closer to the hour of the apocalypse, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists cited "the failure of President Trump and other world leaders to deal with looming threats of nuclear war and climate change." - The Washington Post

I wouldn’t begin to think myself worthy of advising the esteemed Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists on the accuracy of their Doomsday Clock, but come on guys: CHANGE IT BACK!

These people actually believe man can alter weather and you expect them to be sensible?

That’s sort of a funny-looking clock. Big hand, little hand - don’t Atomic Scientists do digital?

The clock should be destroyed by an angry mob, and the anti-American fake scientists should have the ever-loving **** beaten out of them. Thanks NOBO2012.

No, they’ll move it ahead to :30 seconds before midnight, when we go after the Iran deal next.

Wow! Those two guys look pretty serius about their responsibilities.

If I was Trump I would send them an official memo placing the clock at 5 seconds before midnight for the remainder of my second term.

Usually down to the milli or occasionally the femtosecond.

The self-righteous narcissists at the fake “clock” moved the pointer ahead because of and solely because of Trump. In reality, f*ckface bammy put us in nuclear danger with his nuclear gift (”the deal”).
These two fairy-faced slobs need to STFU.

The BS atomic clock is VERY accurate. It ALWAYS get set closer to doomsday when an Republican is elected, and ALWAYS gets set back when a leftist is elected.

Yeah, this nuclear deal with North Korea is going to cause them a lot of trouble.

They are going to have to come up with a new reason to move it closer to midnight.

There’s a ratchet effect on the spacetime of the Doomsday clock. It can only move forward during Republican presidencies and can only move backwards during Democrat presidencies. Even Einstein couldn’t explain it.

Monday night when the world didn’t blow up as Donald Trump stood next to Kim Jong Un, the clock should have been dialed back.

We were told in no uncertain terms that Donald Trump would throw a temper tantrum, use abusive insulting language, cross his arms, and storm out of any meeting.

The propagandists can't even tell time. That is NOT 2 minutes until midnight...
