crack of doom \Prononciation ?\

  1. Jour du jugement dernier et, par extension, fin du monde.
    • The wife of a farmer, a woman who had lived for sixty years, and been known for nothing but good butter and a godly conversation, was to be rooted from her grave at midnight and carried, dead and naked, to that far-away city that she had always honoured with her Sunday's best; the place beside her family was to be empty till the crack of doom; her innocent and almost venerable members to be exposed to that last curiosity of the anatomist. — (Robert Louis Stevenson, The Body Snatcher, 1884)
