"Fiction is the purest art. Commercial fiction is the butter, the darkest chocolate, and the finest malt. That's why we are so addicted to it."--Angie Brooksby-Arcangioli
The thing that's getting me is all the minutes and seconds are crazy different.
LA is only 3 hours behind New York, not six. Otherwise, all the minutes and seconds aren't synched, either. No Idea the hour time difference between NY and Hong Kong, but I think the spread between NY and London is five hours.
Unh, it hurts, it hurts the brain... What ISN'T wrong?Let's see, Hong Kong is GMT+8 and London is GMT+1 (Daylight Savings right now), so HK should be 7 hours ahead of London.NY is GMT-4 so they should by 5 hours behind London, LA is GMT-7 so they should be 8 hours behind London and 3 hours beh... *head explodes*(it's actually not that surprising that HSBC's clocks can't keep time, as anyone who has ever tried to have a rational conversation with their support staff could verify)
On the map, the oceans should be blue.
The minute hands should always be synchronized. Unless you're in HSBC's time traveling branch, in which case, this is perfectly correct.
*eye twitches*I'm gonna focus on the positive and point out that they spelled the names of the cities correctly, and leave it at that.
The hands are backwards.
NY is only 3 hours ahead of LA. Hong Kong should be 30 minutes after the hour, not 50 minutes
It's not five o'clock anywhere.
There is no color in the world.(Makes *really* sad face)
The watches are not in line.
Where's Australia and Hawaii?
Wow... New York minutes really are faster. NYC is a whole day ahead of everybody else.
It means the world has finally adopted MicroTimeZones. Everybody has their own time zone, depending on where you happen to be standing.The only people whose watches are synchronized are those who happen to all be standing on exactly the same longitude line.
You can't tell what's wrong if you don't know what's right.
For one thing, it's not a picture of me holding a big check of my Powerball winnings.
Wait? There are places that aren't New York? And we need to know things about them like the time there?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/View_of_the_World_from_9th_Avenue
This is fun! Are you trying to see how many people are wasting their time on the Net?
Don't you just hate it when you can't find the right size batteries...
I'm too late to offer anything that hasn't been pointed out. If we get to vote for funniest answer, I vote for TGuerra. (Isn't it supposed to be 5 o'clock somewhere??)
I'll tell you what's wrong! Paris isn't there and here in Paris it's always time for a drink!
Damn that Y2K! lol
TGuerra wins Friday! Excellent responses all around. I'm STILL laughing!
This picture explains bankers' hours.
Ummm, there aren't any real places, like Iowa, on the clocks. It's only got times for made up movie settings like NY and LA.
SNORT! (Y2K...good one too)
Is this the BIG PICTURE everybody talks about?
Nothing's wrong – they are all on Banker's hours!"HSBC, The World's Local Bank"
Let's do the timewarp again...
