I saw a commercial the other day for a TV show and it stated that the show starts at 8 / 7 Central. So everyone sees the show at 8 except for the Central Time people who essentially see the TV shows at the same moment that the East Coasters do.
What is wrong with the Central Time people? Are they insecure? Gotta pretend to be East Coasters? You don’t see the Mountain Time people changing their schedule or the Pacific Time people changing their schedule. Is it really that important to you Central Timers to start your TV watching at East Coast hours? I guess you want to be East Coast Time People when you grow up? Just accept the fact that you aren’t East Coasters. Be yourself. It’s ok.
Maybe Congress should pass a law forcing the entire Central time population to go see therapists so we can get past this. Of course, the therapists in Central Time are also Central Time people so the law should require that the therapists to be used should have to be outside central time. Hey, that would really boost the economy wouldn’t it? Everyone has to go see a therapist and they have to travel out of state to do it. Why not? They are forcing us to buy health insurance with no price regulations on it, right? Why not force us to see therapists too and then force us to travel to other states?
Hey, let’s see who is in Central Time. I see big ‘ol Texas. Wow, for all the yappin they do trying to get everyone to think they are important and to follow their lead, I am surprised they watch TV with the East Coasters. And if you look at the map, they are on the Mountain Time zone side. What, they can’t watch on Mountain Time? I know, they would like to call it all Texas Time right? The thing is, no they don’t. They say that on the outside but on the inside they are so happy to follow the East Coast lead. And of course, they drag their buddies from Oklahoma, Arkansas Mississippi and Alabama with them. Those states will blindly do anything that Texas says. They are like the receivers in their little bondage couplings. Just what they receive, I don’t want to get into (pun intended).
I see Memphis is in this insecure grouping too. Not surprising. They like to boast about themselves as much as Texas. Methinks thou doth protest too much. Same goes for “N’orlans.”
I lived in Boston for a while and I would categorize them similarly but they are so far into the Eastern time zone, that they avoid this TV grouping. I just say this though because I noticed Bostonians to be so caught up with comparing themselves to New York, it got old after a while. However, since the curse of the Bambino has been lifted, maybe they will finally start believing more in themselves. After all, they have a lot to offer and our country started there. Boston is a tough place to live though and the people are tough. Its probably due to the harsh weather. I am convinced that if the Mayflower landed in California, we would still be a bunch of British colonies.
I am a little surprised to see Chicago in this Central Time list. In general, Chicago seems to have their own thing going; a good sense of self. In fact, if you look at the map, they even drag parts of the surrounding East Coast states into their insecure TV watching hours. I guess deep down, they just want to be in the East Coast.
Here is an interesting fact: If you look at the map of political party support, you will see that the Republicans dominate in the Central Time Zone. Maybe that is why Republicans are so mean and angry…They don’t like watching TV on someone else’s time. Its a psychological reaction of being forced into something, which ironically, they then want to do to everybody else. Maybe getting that time zone on their own TV viewing time will fix Middle USA.
Bottom line, this 8/7 Central kind of thing is what’s ruining America. How about the TV networks stop coddling and reinforcing these Mountain Time people insecurities and get them on their own TV time. Maybe we can avoid the forced therapy after all and people will start believing in themselves more. Maybe letting the Central Time people be themselves, will help heal our country. Amazing, all our problems in America come down to the TV viewing hours dictated to the Central Time Zone. Well, this has been an interesting sociological study on what started out as a comedic vent.
