    This is idiotic. In fact, it is so stupid that even the most rabid anti-science anti-intellectual ranter would not say such things.

    Daylight Savings Time adds an extra hour of daylight?

    LOL.

    So that's what the Australians do with all the daylight that they save....

    Ya know, you'd think so, but, then you got Palin whos just a heart beat away from being president so, you possibly shouldn't judge...

    Then of course, we actually have George w Bush Jnr as President.. and you had his father too, obviously didn't learn from your first mistake...

    Of course this is nonsense. Daylight Savings Time is just an arbitrary way of measuring the day against the clock, and does not change the actual length of sunlight. As if humans could change the rotation of the Earth! And do the Aussies even have DST like Americans do?

    I'm guessing this must be some silly hoax. The Brits (and perhaps the Aussies as their close cousins) love this kind of lunacy.

    DST? Yes we have DST, we are very proud of our DST, wft exactly is DST icon_razz.gif

    we are currently in day light savings time and yes we do have it,

    Parts of Australia that observe daylight saves time are

    NSW = New South Wales
    ACT = Australia Capital Territory
    SA = South Australia
    TAS = Tasmania (the arse end of Australia)

    It goes from October to the end of March

    Thank you for answering my question! I didn't know! Now this ignorant Yank has learned something new, about a place I very much hope to visit some day, as my partner already has.

    I sense Pattison here somewhere. If he reads this stuff I'm not surprised he is wrong about so many things icon_rolleyes.gif

    thought i'd mention that the state of queensland, which is directly north of new south wales, does NOT have daylight savings. same longitude, but we're an hour behind the other eastern states. it's ludicrous.

    most south-east queenslanders would agree that their western cousins aren't the brightest of sparks. there's a bit of a running joke that they reckon DST confuses the cows, and that their curtains will fade in the "extra hour of light" as mentioned in the above article.

    however, after speaking with a native of western queensland a couple of weeks ago, my opinion regarding their intelligence (or lack thereof) has altered slightly: their main objection is that while they're still on the land herding cattle, they're missing the 6:00 news...

    like i said, altered slightly.
