    Interesting story but I'll move it to GOT for now. I'm trying to keep the USN to gaming or tech stuff generally.

    We already have been claimed to be doomed a gazillion times.

    The Maya's are just laughing their skeletal asses off in their graves from trolling the modern people.
    They where just to lazy to finish that stupid calender.

    Sir Issac Newton disproved all of these 2012 related theories.

    The world won't end this year.

    Well the clock isn't based on all this "Mayan 2012" crap, it's based on mainly nuclear war and such. The clock was moved forward because of the Iranian nuclear program and stuff like that. It says so right in the article and mentions nothing about Mayans.

    It says that in the post, y'know.

    Do people actually read these stories or just see "Doomsday Clock" and instantly assume it's Mayans or Nostradamus or something.

    The crisis was quite quick and, if anything, showed good communication between the US and the Soviet Union. Yes, tensions were high and we were on the brink of war, but good communications between the White House and the Kremlin prevented this crisis.
