Ok, I just got this crazy idea.

BC is international, right? Well I'm sure there will be some people that will be on here on New Year's Eve, or could take the time to get on right?

Well I thought we try to get at least 1 person from each timezone to ring in the new year! So if your not out partying and gettin' plastered (wasted, or drunk), have a safe and happy New Year here!

So the fisrt post for ringing in the new year will be made by at least 1 person from: Nuku'alofa (+13:00GMT), and then the next person from Fiji, Kamchatka, or Marshall Islands (+12:00GMT)

Here is the order of the time zones that will ring in the New Year in order!

Nuku'alofa (+13:00GMT)
Fiji, Kamchatka, Marshall Islands, Auckland, Wellington (+12:00GMT)
Magadan, Solomon Islands, New Caledonia (+11:00GMT)

Yakutsk, Seoul, Osaka, Sapporo, Tokyo (+09:00GMT)

Sri Jayawardenepura, Astana, Dhaka, Almaty, Novosibirsk (+06:00GMT)
Kathmandu (+05:45GMT)
Chennai, Kolkata, Mumbai, New Delhi (+05:30GMT)
Islamabad, Karachi, Tashkent, Ekaterinburg (+05:00GMT)
Kabul (+04:30GMT)
Baku, Tbilisi, Yerevan, Abu Dhabi, Muscat (+04:00GMT)

West Central Africa, Sarajevo, Skopje, Warsaw, Zagreb, Brussels, Cophenhagen, Madrid, Paris, Belgrade, Bratislava, Budapest, Ljubljana, Prague, Amsterdamn, Berlin, Bern, Rome, Stockholm, Vienna, (+01:00GMT)

Greenwhich Mean Time: Dublin, Edinburgh, Lisbon, London, Casablanca, Monrovia (GMT)

Cape Verde Islands, Azores (-01:00GMT)
Mid-Atlantic (-02:00GMT)
Greenland, Buenos Aires, Georgetown, Brasilia (-03:00GMT)
Newfoundland (-03:30GMT)
Santiago, Caracas, La Paz, Atlantic Time (Canada) (-04:00GMT)
Indiana (East), Eastern Time (US and Canada), New York, Atlanta, Bogota, Lima, Quito (-05:00GMT)

Your interests (Check Length), Your location (Check Length). What if I dont need to check my length?
Religion has a built-in defense system: anything that questions a belief, no matter how logical the argument is, is the work of "the devil" by the very fact that it makes you question a belief.
