If you've been hearing about it as long as I have, you'd have noticed that they never move it too far from midnight. Once in a while, they'll make a political point by moving the hands, but it usually remains within "striking distance" of the doomsday hour - lol.
As I recall, they were not embarrased. They were just commenting on the liklihood of a nuclear war as the number and power of nuclear weapons expanded across the globe and the political landscape changed.
Now if they had advanced it to midnight or past midnight and nothing happened, you would have reason to claim they were embarrased - lol.
Btw, please provide you complete inventory of the credentials of all the "atomic scientists" so we can verify your claim that they are neither "atomic" nor "scientists".
