    That the full moon phase has a physical and psychological effect on the human condition. AAAHHHHH!!!!! ...Scientists have proven over and over it's a nonsense. It been proven based on the original concept that the moon sets epilepcy off is false! I had a magistrate tell me it's true...I'm like huh? You're a learned man you have peoples lives in your hands and you think that kind of stuff?

    What? You mean when I go out into the back garden and howl at the full moon it's just superstition? Bummer.

    I was flying home from Germany once, and the guy in the next seat was a Psychologist from Austria.
    We started talking, and our conversation somehow got to that idea, and he suggested that some people could have behavioral changes when the Moon is full, simply because they somehow believe that it happens.
    They believe it so they cut loose because they have something to blame bad behavior on.
    Similar to how people let go of some of their inhibitions after having a couple of drinks, even though they really have not consumed enough alcohol to actually affect their behavior.

    It's definitely a load of tosh IMO. I go out into the garden and howl at the half moon, or is it the last quarter? Any way it does one good thing for me ...................keeps one or two unwanted nosey neighbours away from our house ! LOL Oh I do miss me smilies ! It just isn't the same writing LOL grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr


    I always thought the moon was made of cream cheese anyway ................. and there's supposed to be a man on it somewhere ! Did that cow ever come back to earth ? Well that was what somebody told me when I was a little girl. (guffaw)

    Lunacy, don't you know... It goes back a long time (the superstition, that is.)
