Adelaide (South Australia) has a half hour time difference to Eastern
Australian Time. These things are caused by having a Federation of States
where the States make their own laws about time.

I went to http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/

I saw that it was 10:35 in New York but in Adelaide it was 1:05 PM and in
New Delhi 8:05.

How can that be?
