Starting 2007 off on the right foot

So, today the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists has turned the "doomsday clock" closer to midnight two minutes, to five minutes 'till midnight. Midnight means "end of the world."

The clock was created in 1947 and is an arbitrary measure of how close humanity is to destroying themselves. Good stuff.

Apparently, increased nuclear proliferation, global warming, and the fact that the U.S. and Russia have 2,000 missiles at the ready to destroy the world bugs someone else as well. We'll see, I'll probably be asleep in five minutes.
