Samuel’s Blog Weekly Poll: Sleep

May 6th, 2007 at 10:18am

One thing that has intrigued me for a while is how much sleep people need. I know that my sleep pattern varies wildly, and I tend to require more sleep if I sleep at night than I do if I sleep during the day. So, this week’s question is as follows:

On average, how much sleep do you get each day?

Total Votes: 27
Started: May 6, 2007

Last week I ran a poll which was probably affected by external factors during the week.

Which industrial relations policy do you prefer?

Total Votes: 26
Started: April 29, 2007

What I noticed during the week was that the support for Labor’s policy had a large lead for most of the week, but near the end after the “fairness test” changes announced by the federal government, the support for Work Choices rebounded. As people who have already voted can’t vote again, it is quite possible that people who voted earlier in the week may have changed their mind since, but have been unable to change their vote.

As I said last week, I’m quite happy with Work Choices, but then again I’m not employed by someone who has taken unfair advantage of the laws. It’s a good thing in my view that the federal government has sought to fix up the holes in the laws, and for those who think it’s just a petty grab for votes, this isn’t the first time that laws have been changed to fix problems with them…both major parties have a good track record of doing that.

    I answered that I normally get 6-8 hours of sleep, which is true. However, if you want to know how much sleep I need, well that is eight hours exactly. Because I typically sleep less, I need to sleep for longer every few nights, or to crash out in the afternoon every once in a while.
