    The Doomsday Clock Has Gone Forward, And Twitter Has Reacted Exactly How You'd Imagine

    "I would simply move the doomsday clock further from midnight, thus annihilation averted."

    If you don't know what the Doomsday Clock is, it's a symbol that is used to represent the likelihood of a man-made global catastrophe (fun, right).

    Take a look at how it's changed since then:

    So with the clock moving to 90 seconds before midnight, this is how Twitter reacted:

    The furthest from midnight the Doomsday Clock has ever been is 17 minutes in 1991. The official explanation is the break up of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War. But I like to think Michael Bolton's "Time, Love & Tenderness" album had a little something to do with it.

    The Doomsday clock is so mean like whose idea was it to just terrorize the helpless masses by reminding them that billionaires are getting closer than ever to wiping us all off the planet from the safety of their rural compounds and/or megayachts.
