I'm not sure how many of you have discovered this, and I'm not sure where the fault lies but clearly someone does not want us to know when New Years truly is. Here is my story, you decide what to believe....
Last night we went to a friends for a New Years event. Like a good OCD watch guy I chose what watch I was going to wear, changed my ind and then decided on my most accurate mechanical watch-my Stowa Airman. I carefully set it at approximately 4:30 EST yesterday using the Emerald Time App on my iphone (which syncs to 4 internet servers!). I figured at most, I would be a second off...
Well at about 11:40 PM EST i compared my watch's time to the countdown on TV (My friend had the Fox news channel on direct TV) and discovered that they were EXACTLY 20 seconds behind my watch. Frantic, I pulled out my phone and double checked the time on Emerald Time and found my watch matched exactly! I'm not sure who is at fault but the best I can come up with are the following hypothesis...
- The Obama administration punked Fox News
- Fox news created this issue to make the Obama administration look foolish
- NORAD changed the timing on the ball drop back in 2000 to avoid the [email protected] scare and the only reason computers are still running is because of the 20 second gap
- Direct TV has been sabotaged by local cable networks
My wife and I secretly celebrated privately 20 seconds before everyone else. I felt a little smug and she rolled her eyes. No secret police took us away (yet...they may be reading this...) so we should be safe!
Did anyone else notice this...this... abomination!!!
How dare they take our true New Years from Us!!!
(could it be the Tea Party???)
