A load of nonsense used to scare people.
Well they changed the terms of it. It used to be based on nuclear weapons. When the cold war cooled off they changed it to reflect environmental concerns and whatnot.

However Putin has basically made it relevant again. People point to the 83 war scare and Cuba as being the most danger the planet has faced. We aren't at Cuba levels of danger yet, but I'd say tensions are significantly higher than in 83.

It's a shame they never give you the opportunity to feed that back to them.
I'm going to go against the grain because in my area Evri are excellent. Our area is small enough that we have 1 person that covers the whole area and she is brilliant. Never an issue, she knows everyone and if there's ever a problem where she's left it with someone else and the instructions were unclear she responds to the random "does anyone know who's porch this is?" posts on the local Facebook group.

In my previous house in a city where we had a different driver every time they (Hermes then) were terrible.

If Putin was serious about using a nuke he would have used one by now, either tactical or even a dirty bomb (and blamed it on "terrorists".
This doomsday clock crap is exactly that, crap. Does it stop at midnight or does it follow the concept of time? What happens at 12:05am?

They're fine, but their comms are a bit needy.

At 12:05am your trousers fall down. Then your boxers.

Unreal how much attention this subjective measurement always gets.

I have my own doomsday clock and it is still only half past 4 in the afternoon.

Although it is quite sensitive.

It was 10 to midnight after Woodgate's last game in charge when Swansea humped us.

It was 10am before we played on Sunday.

I don't think it's possible to say with any degree of certainty what Putin would or would not do.
