Tick Tock, Tick Tock

The Bulliten of Atomic Scientists maintain a "Doomsday Clock" that is a symbol of how close mankind is to nuclear destruction. Currently the clock stands at seven minutes to midnight. (Midnight is when we all go boom.) On Wednesday the clock's hands are going to be moved, presumably forward. Seven minutes to midnight is where the clock started when it was created in 1947, and it has been as close as two minutes to midnight and as far as seventeen minutes 'til over the years.
