anyways, I remember watching alot of shows on the History channel about the Cold war. The board of Atomic Scientists (cant remember the real name) would always publish the time. Very interesting stuff.
I think that show said something about back when it was 2 minutes to midnight (again, i think). Was a scary-ass time to live.
thats the dumbest clock i've ever seen. it doesn't actually mean anythign excpet "we think the worlds gonna blow eachother up". Usually clocks count down to something, this is more like a threat level meter than a clock. Also whya re atomic scientists deciding to move the clock rather than military people/people who actually have some idea when someone might launch a nuke.
