WHAT DO 'Y' AMERICANS
MEAN WHEN A SHOW IS ON AT
LIKE "8/ " WHAT IS
We never switched over to metric
timekeeping. The c stands for "Caw",
referring to how many times a
majestic eagle has flown overhead
and caused that day. Sometimes the
eagles are feeling sluggish, so the
show could be on after either the tth
or tth saw.

for anyone who actually doesnt know
because america has a couple time zones the same show can be shown in both at once and if it say this will be on at 8pm all the people in central time would miss it

I didn't realize Time Zones were all that difficult to grasp. It's not like it's the same time all over Europe either...

But our television shows are only aired for a country which usually just has a single timezone. Only huge countries have more than one, and even then its just 2.

It's not like we have television shows for the whole europe.

Russia is technically part of Europe.
User avatar #44 to #35 - fpsnoob (06/28/2014) [-]
Only the smaller part.
User avatar #45 to #44 - skittlesinexcess (06/28/2014) [-]
would you call Russia a European country or an Asian country, because I don't know which it is.
User avatar #55 to #45 - internetexplain ONLINE (06/28/2014) [-]
Russia is European , that guy is just being retarded , so are the people downthumbing you.
These ******* don't know jack **** about history.

The reason uneducated fags can even argue whether Russia is European or not , is because east of the Ural , Russia technically ends and where Russian Colonies begin , but since Russian colonies in Asia are all directly connected to Russia itself as well as the fact mainly Rusians live there in the first place , makes it a single blob of Europe , stretching from Finland to North-Korea

Fair point...

When i was like 5 i thought '8/7c' meant the show came on at 7:30
User avatar #36 to #19 - steswethesecond (06/28/2014) [-]
That's actually quite logic to think

6 o' Caw equates to about 17 bong in British timekeeping.

Just remember there was a similar post not too long ago freaking out over school starting in September. Tumblr users just seem to have habit of ignoring Google's existence and making posts like they're freaking out over anything remotely foreign to have another reason to call America "weird". Hell even Canada has this timezone stuff too.

8/7c = 8 o'clock pacific and 7 o'clock central
User avatar #62 to #58 - gibroner (06/29/2014) [-]
actually 8 would be eastern standard time which most television stations use pacific would be an hour behind central timezone
User avatar #63 to #58 - nthmetal (06/29/2014) [-]
Or 8 EST and 7 CST
