A new breakthrough came about in the year 2017 which made the 8 minutes between the times 11:38 p.m. and 11:46 p.m. have been named the best 8 minute for muting the television.
Whether it be because these 8 minutes gives people the chance to find someone to kiss with a perfect 14 minutes to spare before the ball drop, a good 8 minutes prior to the ball dropping to reflect on the terrible events of 2017 exactly 14 minutes before preparing for the New Year or because that is the exact time period in which Mariah Carey is performing, we are not really sure.
Thus it is advised that, in order to have a successful 2018 that doesn’t involve losing your job, drowning in debt and remaining single for another year, you must mute your television for those 8 minutes. While the sweet, sweet sound of Ryan Seacrest and Fox News may be comforting, especially in your drunken state, it is crucial that you save yourself until 14 minutes before 2018. Best of wishes to you all in the upcoming holiday.
