los angeles - canada - new york

This photo was taken at a Days Inn in the U.S.. Decades ago, having a set of wall-mounted clocks, each one showing the time in a different far-away city, used to be a cheap and simple way of saying “look at me, I’m a citizen of the world!” Nowadays, it just says that you’re looking for a cheap and simple way of faking that you’re a citizen of the world.

Looks like they consider Calgary as Canada. They show it Canada as Mountain Time or Saskatchewan Time if its daylight savings is on.

Alright Mister Fancy Canuckistan Guy, you may have a point here about the geographic knowledge of my compatriots here in Upper Mexico, but…

I dare you to logically explain why Newfoundland is a half-time zone away from New Brunswick.

What is that 30 minutes about?

Mountain (Calgary) is only one hour ahead of Pacific (Los Angeles). They appear to be showing Central time in, well, the center.

Clearly, they just misspelled “Chicago” very, VERY badly.
