OK we live in different countries so of course we have different times. When in USA is 8:00 pm here in Greece is 03:00 at night... and also with other countries we have +/- hours ...

BUT

wtf with Venezuela? why this country has difference a demican number of hours... like 7:30 and not 7 or 8 hours... why they use the 30 minutes ??? wtf???

I asked a girl here who she is from Venezuela and told me that Chavez wants people from Venezuela wake up 1st than american people LOL.... this is crazy!

Hell, even in Canada it's like that. lets say that it's 7pm here it would be 8:30pm there and this is within the same country.

ok, looks like you beat me to it. haha, but they are 30 minutes ahead of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick etc.. Not Places like Toronto, Ottawa, Sudbury etc.. anything in the Eastern time zone NFLD is 1 hour and 30 minutes ahead.

I would have thought Newfounland would have stopped that a long time ago, I remember how all the tv shows would always have to take the moment to mention the odd time for their schedule for those in newfoundland

Crazy? Try insane. Chavez is fucked in the head. He's pretty much destroyed the country.
And if he wins the election (fuck if he even survives until then), then Venezuela is even more fucked.

You can say that again and that's just a small part of the many things.
