Today, I was forced to spend New Years Eve with my strict/conservative parents in the middle of nowhere in Illinois. If I had nothing else, I looked forward to watching the ball drop in NYC. As the seconds counted down the T.V. shut off. Parental controls shut down cable at midnight. FML
Nowhere is in Kansas.
and you can watch the ball drop online...it's not the same, but...Happy New Year anyway?
If you'd really been watching the NYC celebration from Illinois, then you would've seen the 6-ton lighted ball drop at 11PM local time (CST) when it was midnight in NY (EST). Thus, your tv would have turned off an hour AFTER the midnight celebration in NY, which is one time zone over - and earlier.
