That means when I spend 10 years in front of my TV watching US movies
here, a person in the US had to waste 10 years 15 days and 5 hours to
consume the same amount :)

BTW, doesn't this faster playback impose a problem with sound timing? I
mean, shouldn't the sound go out of sync with the movie then? Or do they
play the sound faster too???
