Seeing that QLD still thinks that's true...
TV you need a little lesson in Geography.
Brisbane is a lot north of Melbourne plus a lot further east.Both those facts mean the sun sets earlier in Brisbane than Melbourne.
As an example on Christmas day this year the sun will set in Melbourne with DST at 8.43pm.In Brisbane without it it will be 6.44 pm.So if Brisbane had DST the sun would set at the same time as Melbourne without it.So really not much point.
Besides the best time for physical exertion in QLD is early morning when it is cool rather than late in the day when it is usually very hot and humid.
Another example to show the difference geography makes.Cairns is a lot further north than Brisbane so making an earlier sunset.But it is also a lot further west than Brisbane making it later.the result is virtualy the same time of sunset-6.51pm on Christmas day.

Except with QLD's climate when I was working full time I was on the golf course ~ 0430-0500,home by 0800 to be at work 0900.By 0900 the temp was often 30C with 90% humidity.Was still that at 1700.

Somewhat unusual style of joke amongst those randomly printed on the placemats in the breakfast restaurant of the Lemon Tree hotel at Aurangabad, India just now.

A colleague of mine answered the phone quite unprofessionally one day. They were confronted with "Do you know who this is?" and after the requisite "No" was told in no uncertain terms who it was. My colleague responded with "Well do you know who I am?" and the boss said "No." followed by "Good" and a click as he hung up. To this day he doesn't answer the phone to unknown numbers in case his voice is recognised. o_O

A man attending a sexaholics anonymous meeting proudly states he has abstained for 3 months.
He was told to keep it up.

The difference between complete and finished is best described thus:
If you marry the right woman you're complete. If you marry the wrong woman you're finished. If you marry a woman who likes shopping you're completely finished.
