Even a simple examination will show the pattern here.
Crazies out - full moon out - lots of moonlight (moonbeams)
Far fewer Crazies - new moon - not much moonlight (moonbeams)

While this might seem to be an amazing coincidence to cruisers, it is pretty routine science for moonlight researchers.
Hmm, full moon tonight, crazy posts on CF.. you just might be on to something here.....

Re: Full Moon,the Crazies Are Coming Out

Speaking of moon, I got this shot last night. The camera didn't pick it up very well but there was a little bit of a rainbow around it. Very awesome!

At one time in my life, I owned a bar - yep, full moon nights were filled with strangeness and people we'd never seen before. I now work in a doctor's office - I can tell when full moon is coming, they act up a few days before AND a few days after. I swear you'd think it's a psych office, but it's not! Ask any cop, EMT, doctor, nurse - there's definitely something about it.
