In 1987 Libyan terrorists, backed by Iran, blew up a disco in Berlin. I was in the Army in Germany at the time. We went on alert across all of Germany and moved into “Go To War” positions. In 1990, Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait and threatened Saudi Arabia. In 2001, Al Qaeda destroyed the World Trade Center and seriously damaged the Pentagon. But now we are 90 seconds from Armageddon? FUck off Doomsday Clock people

The Toho movie "Captain Harlock" has a "Genesis Clock" as well, which will reset the world back to the start and (presumably) give us a second chance. I have to say, at this point, I'd push the button.
