Is the Livestream Too Early?

I’m just curious - Is the livestream time of 11am Central / Noon Eastern too early? Would folks rather I streamed later in the day?

  • No! Noon is perfect. The sun is at it’s highest point and my chakras are most aligned
  • You should stream in the afternoon, so that my stablehands have time to groom my horses after morning polo.
  • Earlier please. I need to watch before I go feed the pigeons at the park.
  • Late at night would be best - the sun hurts my delicate skin.

Thanks for the feedback


I’m on the west coast, for me you start the stream before I even wake up.

He starts at 9 AM where we are - a lot of other people are awake by then

There is a five hour time difference between coasts.

I’m a late sleeper, on some occasions I’m still asleep before it starts (it starts at 11AM)


I usually have work from early in the morning and busy till about 10PM:/ depends on the day. I voted late because that’s for me, but early in the morning will def work on my off days


Right - misread that lol, my bad


Actually, no… unless you’re including Hawaii and Alaska, it’s only a 3 hour difference. 12 p.m. EST (Maine down to Florida) is 9 a.m. Pacific (Washington, Oregon, Nevada, and California).

I know this because I live in Ohio, my mom lives in California, and my dad lives in Utah. Ohio is EST (same as New York, Maine, Florida, etc.) so if it’s 10 a.m. where I’m at, it’s 7 a.m. in California (and Nevada), 8 a.m. in Utah (Mountain time). So if I have to take that into consideration every time I call them.

I can see where you got the 5 hour number from though, as there are probably 5 time zones total, as not every state observes Daylight Savings, and a couple of states have some really weird regional time zone stuff going on even between one city and the next. And it takes at least 5 hours to fly between the coasts (depending on the jet stream; 5 hours nonstop if the jet stream is behind the plane, 6-7 hours for a non stop flight if you’re heading into the jet stream). But in general, in the continental U.S., the time difference between the east coast and the west coast is 3 hours.

As for my personal preference, I am mostly a night owl, but there’s no need to cater the streams to me and my weird schedule. I’m just thinking that many people might be at work or something between 9 a.m. to noon. Maybe later in the afternoon / evening would be better for them?


When we flew back to Chicago from Guatemala, the flight went from a 4 hour plane ride to a 5 hours plane ride…

Joking, it was the same time, but the time jumped one hour… so was it?

Guatemala is Central Standard Time, Chicago is Central Daylight Time. They don’t observe Daylight Savings Time in Guatemala, thus the 1 hour difference. If you were to fly there during the North American winter, the times would be the same, because Chicago time will have “fallen back” by one hour.


Ah yes, but it’s not winter my friend.

…I can time travel

What I’m saying is that in the winter, Chicago’s time will be the same as Guatemala time. In the summer, Chicago’s time is one hour ahead of Guatemala. Hence why your 4 hour flight put you 5 hours ahead. :grin:

I can time travel, too. I came here from 1979. Beat that!

That is, I can time travel, but unfortunately only in one direction.

I’ve got an Australian buddy in a gaming group I’m in. Sometimes I’ll log in and say something like “happy Friday night everyone!” and he’ll laugh and say “it’s Saturday afternoon here”. Wow! Australia is in the future. :open_mouth:

I depart Indianapolis, Indiana, at 7 a.m. in my car, driving westbound along Interstate 70.

I arrive in Effingham, Illinois, 130 miles away, at 8 a.m. the same day.

How fast was I driving? :grin:


65 mph

I used to fly across the country regularly (west-east coast and back). It always threw me off. You can get a nonstop flight that will take 5 hours (give or take depending on jet stream and weather conditions) each way. But I would depart from Los Angeles International (LAX) at say 6 a.m. Pacific time and land in Washington Dulles International (IAD) at 2 p.m. Eastern time. Then return flight, I would leave Washington Dulles at say 4 p.m. Eastern and land back at LAX at 6 p.m. Pacific.

Hence the term “jet lag”. One day your body thinks midnight is midnight, then suddenly your midnight is actually 3 a.m. So you try to adjust for that, then you fly back, and your “new” midnight flips all the way back to 9 p.m. And that’s just U.S. transcontinental flights! I can’t imagine how screwed up someone would be if they were constantly flying all across the globe for international business meetings or something. Like you have a business meeting in London, then another one scheduled the next day in Tokyo… that lifestyle must wreak havoc on the internal clock.


10am EST but I just got back from 10am EST being 8am where I was.

In conclusion: I woke up at 6am Guatemalan time (don’t know the time-zone).

The current time as I post this is:

3:33 a.m. in the RED region
2:33 a.m. in the YELLOW region
1:33 a.m. in the GREEN region
12:33 a.m. in the ORANGE region

And 1:33 a.m. in Guatemala.

If memory serves correct - you, me, and grazer are all in the RED region.

Guatemala is currently in the GREEN time zone, but because they do not observe Daylight Savings, they will revert to the same time as the YELLOW region’s time zone on November 7, 2021 (or rather, more accurately, our YELLOW region will revert to Guatemala time, as Guatemala’s time does not change).


Aaayyy, red region bros!


Almost half (47.1%) of all Americans live in the EST zone, actually.


Almost half (47.1%) of people experience chronic depression.


LOL they’re not all in the same time zone, though. Allegedly, the happiest state is Hawaii, which isn’t even in the continental U.S. I guess I’d be mostly happy too if I was living in a tropical paradise.

(which is not to say that I’m unhappy - I’m happy most of the time, except for when I’m having a bad day, and that can happen in any time zone)
