The New Timezones

Newer, better timezones for our modern age.

Watch Video

great video, and I was thinking its probably a subset of WPT but if TVTPT(tv-tropes time) you wont be seeing them for at least a year.

Clearly they have never flown LAX. That place needs the 2 hour buffer even when you have a 6am flight. Don't ask me how, that place is still crowded then.

Ok episode with nice time ideas.
Was laughing when the cheese exploded though! :P

TGT is a bit more complicated in the United States because of CAT (Commercial Allowance Time). TGT should be adjusted +30 minutes CAT if it's a new episode. But standard TGT is still 60 minutes for repeat episodes on BBCA because the episode will be missing 15 minutes of content. As such, viewers should replace that 15 minutes with complaining about the Americanization of overseas media.

Loved this video, especially the part about daylight savings. Made me laugh.
If anyone's interested I reversed the audio: http://bit.ly/14HIMNF

I lost interest 2 min in... It was so BORING!

Don't forget the all important JOMMT timezone (Just One More Match Time): whenever someone is playing LoL or Dota 2 take in account that it is never just one more match, so expect them to be done sometime tomorrow morning.

I think you have a mistake on APT. Shouldn't it have said -120 rather than +120?

They forgot LRRT, where you have to add increments of 10 minutes for however long you're addicted to LRR videos.

Couldn't one just convert BBT to DWT, Dr. Who Time? I mean, it's not just a British love but the times convert well enough.

What about YTT (YouTube Time), where you add 1 to 2 hours after clicking random videos related to each other.

I would keep Paul away from Benjamin Franklin's grave...

Once TG repeats are farmed out to Dave in the UK, they lose about 10 minutes for adverts and trailers.

On another note, we have a channel called Dave. Because society is fucked. It exists for Top Gear repeats. They have a +1 channel, which is (actually) wittly called "Dave ja vu"

I found a perfect way to deal with TGT problems.

By not enjoying Top Gear (in less it's a journey special).

At university I had:

DWT (Doctor Who Time, when Doctor who repeats were on iPlayer and I'd watch an episode before Uni)
and HONT (Heroes of Newerth Time where playing a game would awaken me)

'Cheese combustion'?
Possibly a reference to the 5-day-long, Norwegian cheese-fire in that tunnel south of Oslo?
Mm, expecting it on Feed Dump on Wednesday. ;3

Ten minutes of truncated Top Gear footage feels like 15 minutes. As based on the standard, universal, TGT conversion ratio.

;)

Errr I will stick to the timezones we got thank you very much!

The new timezone went into one of my ear and out from the other!

Like Paul said, it's still too damn early!

That sounds like the worst tasting bread ever.

DWT would have to adjusted depending on how long each episode is. Sometimes BBC America will play a new episode in full when its new, then cut 15 minutes off as a rerun.

What? Still? Why won't it stop?!

This show is very topical to me right now, as I've just started to talk with a lot of people who live in different time zones.

Also, I'm kind of with Paul on Daylight Savings Time.

Don't forget OMTT which is Civilization "One More Turn" time. That runs me anywhere from 30 mins to an hour.

My life is now much easier to organize now that I know I shouldn't even bother. Thanks LRL!

Man, I wish I could be on the ZZT time :). Also love the backwards one. Thanks, Wooglie, for translating that one.

So shirt with Paul raising his fists to the sky in anger with "Curse you Daylight Savings Time!" on it?

An urgent warning for all internet comedians currently researching Modern Time Zones: DO NOT research TVTropes Time! All labs conducting experiments into TTT invariably collapse into a temporal vortex that actually erases the researchers from history itself! The only reason we know about them at all is because one of the doomed researchers managed to get out a text message by setting his phone to DNT, or Duke Nukem Time!

Yeah, screw Daylight Savings...

Heh, yeah those timezone concepts actually make a lot of sense... heck, might even be useful... and that's so damn true with airport time... heck, and wiki time.

What was that music playing in the background? Sounded like a chiptune or something, and I found it really distracting.

TVTT TV Tropes Time is essentially infinite- if someone adds that, you won't be seeing them again, ever. If they do manage to arrive, somehow, check the temperature in Hell...

Paul's DB shirt was distracting, in that it made me remember I have one and I don't know where it is... oh well, great vid as always.

Incidentally, I'm glad someone else also feels that the Fast & Furious movies, while individually aren't the best cinema ever, but watched as a whole, are amazing. Also Daylight Savings needs to die.

Say it with me, everyone: Daylight SAVING time. SAVING. There's no 's' at the end of SAVING.

Wikipedia: Daylight saving time. (Daylight savings time redirects here.)

Noticed how Graham's leg was (almost) perfectly synced with james foot in the phone-1-2 scenes?

Planned or coincidence? Knowing LRR... probably both :)

Good sketch!

Daylight Savings!

This actually makes an awful lot of sense... I can think of a use for every single one of these times.

GYAH. Ninja'd in the first reply!

Not a "LOL-er" for me, but I really liked this sketch.
