events in history

The Doomsday Clock was created in 1947 to representing how close we are to a global catastrophe. It’s maintained by the members of The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists’ Science and Security Board.

The group of scientists, including 16 Nobel Laureates, announced this morning that we have moved dangerously close to all-out disaster. The Clock’s recent advance to two and a half minutes means that scientists and experts agree that we are teetering on the brink of societal collapse or an apocalyptic scale nuclear war, which symbolically occurs at midnight exactly.

In the years since the Clock was created we have only been this close to midnight once, in 1953 when the Hydrogen Bomb was first tested. Further, the minute hand has only changed nineteen times since the Clocks creation.

This is not an announcement to take lightly or brush off – these scientists are all renowned geniuses in their respective fields and they have never been known to change the Time casually or without very strong reasoning.

To those that are sick of politics and don’t see the point in discussing the current state of the world: THIS is the point. THIS is the result of widespread apathy, lack of education, and disinterest in current events.

Once upon a time Rome was a magnificent and powerful empire, but it still crumbled to the ground at the peak of its glory. As an Archaeology student I can tell you that those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

The final sentence in the Doomsday report this morning gave a warning, “Wise public officials should act immediately, guiding humanity away from the brink. If they do not, wise citizens must step forward and lead the way.”

I managed to screen shot these pages that were supposedly The History of Lucky Smells Lumber Mill but if you read closely it is the first  article from the Daily Punctilio about the Baudelaire’s. It includes foreshadow *ahem* Count Omar, and a major spoiler. 

Reminder: Today is National Coming Out Day.
  • If you are already out, you can come out again. 
  • If you are contemplating coming out, you should do so when you are fully ready (and safe and comfortable) to do so. 
  • If you have friends who are out (or not), do not out them to others without their consent and approval. 
  • Also, do not judge folks who are not out. They have their reasons, and they can decide whether or not to come out when they want to do so.
  • Have fun, be safe, and be respectful. 

Straight friends: This day is not for you. No, you do not need to come out as straight. Trust us, we know.
