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

Yay #2, you fail. Congratulaions :D now go and get a life instead of trying to be first.

And OP...that sucks, try standing up for yourself. Depending on how old you are. If you're younger than 15, then don't bother. Older that 15, tell them where to shove their parental controls.

Don't feel too sorry for her considering NYC is an hour ahead of IL so it would be at 11. Nice try but I live in Illinois and I watched that one. It was quite nice.

This reminds me...
I thought New York was an hour or two ahead of Illinois...?
So... The OP should have been able to see the first ball drop.

I must still be buzzed, because typing "ball drop" made me laugh..

You're a dumb-ass. The ball drop is recorded at midnight in NYC and is replayed in every time zone at midnight. What kind of sense does that make otherwise?
