-->When the clock says stop we're all gonna drop
-->I don't care if we get caught
-->When the clock says stop we're all gonna drop
-->I don't care what you've been taught

The ''[[http://www.thebulletin.org/ Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists]]'' at the University of Chicago actually keep one as a prop... of DOOM! When it was originally introduced [[UsefulNotes/ColdWar in 1947]] the clock symbolized how close the world was to nuclear war, with the metaphor supporting it being: talks have broken down, and once midnight hits, the attacks start. [[DespairEventHorizon And we are all DOOMED]]. Since [[TheGreatPoliticsMessUp the fall of the Iron Curtain]], the original metaphor is (supposedly) obsolete, and it was expanded to [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt catastrophic destruction]] of any sort, provided it's on a global scale. The ''Bulletin'''s website specifically mentions GlobalWarming and [[GeneticEngineeringIsTheNewNuke bioengineering]] as possible causes of [[DoomyDoomsOfDoom DOOM]] in addition to nuclear war; however, given they can never go a year without also mentioning "global nuclear weapons modernizations" it's largely believed that the simple ''existence'' of nukes remains a big AuthorTract for the Bulletin.
