Is there such a thing as a link between human behaviour and the lunar synodic cycle?

It is a full moon and here is what happened today:

- a minivan cut me off for no reason and then the driver swore at me for being there
- a bus swerved over two lanes and just missed me
- a cab turned in front of me and then just stopped, forcing me to come to a complete stop to avoid hitting him
- another car ran a red light and barely missed hitting me: this one was scary!
- I gave up counting the number of cars that ran red lights

What is it? It's insane out there!

I notice a lot of seasonal crap. Just yesterday I watched a couple of SUVs going at it roadraging. First I've seen of it since before Winter, go figure.

The PD I work for was very busy Friday night and Saturday. When I left last night the cells were full. I do believe that there are a bunch of lunaticks (sp?) out there!

I am a clinician in a psychiatric hospital...I DO find that a full moon does have an impact on people's behavior...we notice it at the hospital each month. It is not just the people we treat but, as you've noticed, it is across the board...
