I have heard this to be true about people, that the moon effects our emotions and actions like it effects the tides of the planet, and I never saw this so much as I have here working with my guys in the homeless program. It actually isn’t so much my guys, like, our regular members, as it is the people who come in for lunch, which is open to anyone in the community. During a full moon, people are more agitated.
Like hot kernels in a bag about to pop, they are equal parts happy and angry, talking loudly and moving forcefully. We have more fights during a full moon. I don’t know the statistics behind it, but we call the police more during a full moon. I wonder what their statistics are?
