Daylight Savings?
« on: April 27, 2010, 11:56:51 PM »
Hi I am surprised to see that this topic hasn't been discussed yet.

Having moved to Jimboomba from NSW and only been here 2 years i must say that i miss having daylight savings and the extra hour that it brings in the afternoon.
 I guess i am biased on this subject but i just wanted to know other peoples thoughts on this.

Welcome to Jimboomba Online forums!

I'd love to see Daylight savings come to Queensland, however it seems to be pretty unlikely at the moment because so many think the cows need to wake up an hour earlier to give milk, when as we all know they'll be ready to milk at the same solar time as they always have.

Cross the border and... :o Welcome to 1970 ::).
QLD,  is beautiful and so are the people; but, we are 40 years behind the times and the , rest of Au (maybe with the exception of WA, I am told they are in 1965) and even further behind the rest of the world. And not just in time either...but...there is hope...the younger generation are becoming more up to date and less stuck in the mud/mire. 
As the balance tips and the diehards die, QLD will eventually catch up with the 21st century (Hopefully long before the 22nd).

Considering it is now that time of the year again, when I still miss the extra lifestyle hour in the afternoon, I'm miffed by a statement made by a local supporter of NO CHANGE.  It has to do with the cows, he said very strait faced.  It appears that Qld cows (can read the time, so), if we put the clocks back and forth they get very confused as to milking time etc. And the same goes for qld chooks and things, which, unlike NSW/VIC cows, chooks and other domestic creatures, that are still clever enough to tell the time, for their respective duties, by the sun.  Moral of the story is: teaching your animals to read the time has significant disadvantages! ;)

Well it is daylight saving time again, here in the southern states.  :)  I had forgotten how good it is.  What with not wasting so much sunshine in the morning and so much more daylight to enjoy in the evenings, it is certainly a gift to those that actually have a life.  ;)
I am told that it will take two generations before the diehards without-just-cause opposing change actually disappear, and useful change can take place.  One generation is already gone, so in the next 30 years reason will eventually prevail.   ;D
As if cows could  read the time on clocks!  The mind boggles at such nonsense! ::)

I reckon they should ban daylight savings in the southern states if we can't get it in Queensland.  :)

Somewhere in the future it'll happen in Queensland, but as you said, it ain't likely to happen for a few more years yet. :(

Considering the complexities involved in switching to and from daylight savings time e.g. changes to air traffic, shipping, work hours and economic costs (I'm sure there would be further reaching examples) wouldn't it be better to adjust work hours per season or as required instead of adjusting the clocks for most of the country?

Good point there, but the fact remains that for most of the year the Eastern seaboard of Australia is one consistant time zone, then we sudden go in to 2 or more time zones, depending upon when each of the other states go in to daylight savings.

Modifying work hours is probably the easiest option for some, but when we go from a synchronised time zone, to multiple time zones is when it causes us all varying levels of grief. ;)
