It's just a metaphor for the existential threats we face as a species. It's been close to midnight, give or take a minute or two, my whole life -- and I'm old!

Though lethal on a massive scale, this particular pandemic is not an existential threat. Its consequences are grave and will be lasting. But COVID-19 will not obliterate civilization, and we expect the disease to recede eventually.


What a pity. 8)

All promises.
No delivery. :mrgreen:

When you get to our age, we just sit back and chuckle at the panic of naive people. :mrgreen:

I think I have an archive on posts from this website, of people losing their minds over the pandora pandemic.
I am not sure it survived, but I might take a look if I have the mental energy. 8)

It was started in 1947 by Einstein, and other scientists. They set it at seven minutes.

It averaged about seven minutes during the cold war. Maybe ten minutes or more during the post cold war Nineties. But there were moments when it dropped to two minutes or less during both eras.

Got more unstable in the 2000s zigzagging from high to low.

But if you think of seven minute, or 420 seconds as "normal", then that means were are only four times as bad of as normal! :D

Only four times closer to nuclear holocaust!

Keep in mind the influences of "Woke culture" on the time setting. 8)

Look on the smoky red sunset bright side.
Some people, 10 years ago, predicted mass extermination of humanity within *5* years.
