    Does a full moon make people crazier than usual? If so, how, and why?

    don't know why but all you have to do is look in the emergency rooms, police stations, and the number of calls

He is the stuff of which legions are made. ...His pride is in his colors and his regiment, his training hard and thorough and coldly realistic, to fit him for what he must face...and his obedience is to his orders.

    Yes! It seems that people are more aggressive. I wish I could tell you why.

    I would have to say that it is sorta like the same effect when the temperature drops or a cool front comes through.

    After seeing the South Dallas neighborhoods I saw up close on my ride-alongs, I wonder if it's just that they have more light to see each other so they can aim better.

    It seems like when night falls, that's when they all come out of their house and congregate on the street corners.

    If you went to my neighborhood after dark, you wouldn't find a sole on the street except maybe for someone jogging their dog - most of us have to get up in the morning because we work for a living (well as of tomorrow ). I wonder if it affects us at all?

    Yes. Maybe something to do with the greater gravitational pull of the full moon or increased magnetic field, who knows?

    I think it could be a werewolf syndrom or something like that. God knows these people don't have far to go to behave like animals.

    Most people don't know that humans photosynthesize light just like plants do. When sunlight reflects off the moon, the light picks up particles of toxic moon-dust that disrupts the photosynthesis process and is known to cause unpredictable behavior in humans.

    The effect is diminished when the moon is not full, because not as much light is being reflected. The effect is also diminished in people who have been out in real sunlight during the day, as their bodies have already photosynthesized much of the light needed to survive.

    Agreed. I work in a nursing home and the residents get mean, or just freakin nuts! literally gone crazy.
    May you rest in peace Daddy and may you never hurt again. I love you and miss you and can't wait to see you again.

    +1

    now here comes a question... is it the fact that more stuff is going on, more "craziness" or are we just more in tune with the possibility that more of it is happening =/

    I have noticed that when the temp changes crazy stuff happens, or when a storm is on the horizon... kinda like when you step outside and that "chill just flows down your back, and you don't know why" type of weather...

    who knows tho =/




    could just be that Wolves can hunt better with the well lit moon helping them out

    I know that studies have not been able to prove this but ask any OB nurse. It is always "wide-open" (pardon the pun) in labor and delivery on a full moon.

    Ditto. And I always seem to get stuck working those nights.

    Let's ask Senator Byrd...

    Senator, how do people act when there's a full moon out?

    "BARBARIC!! BARBARIC!! BARBARIC!!"

    Um.. thank you Senator...

    "BARBARIC!! BARBARIC!! BARBARIC!!

    That's good, Senator, thank you...

    "BARBARIC!!!"

    There you have it, folks... Senator Robert Byrd...

    "BARBARIC!!!

    Um.. back to you, Gracie...

    "BARBARIC!!"
