Default Friday the 13th FULL moon, rare.

It is a rare full moon.

Tonight's Friday the 13th full moon is so rare, it won't happen again until 2049

To the doctors, nurses, emergency room workers, EMT's ect... how busy do you expect tonight to be?
Is there an increase in accidents on FULL moons and or Friday the 13th?

My sister is an RN and she claims the full moons bring out all of the LUNAtics.

It is not a joke, full moons bring out strange behavior regardless of what day it is. Being a FF/paramedic and listening to my pager its already started.

My entire family is comprised of several branches of law enforcement located in 5 major metro areas. Down to the last one, they all claim it def has an effect.

There was a study done sev yrs ago from a well know place which claimed that the increased gravitational pull from a full moon was the cause. We are over 78% or some close number like that water.

I will try to find that article.

Full moons have a greater effect on my kids than sugar does. My wife starts her drinking early on those nights. She's probabably half in the bag right now.

At lunch I threw a yozuri off the dock, first cast, a lil 13 inch snook. Second cast, a jack crevalle chased it all the way back but didnt bite. 3rd cast, I look down, and 2 ft down was either the biggest snook ever or a small tarpon just cruising by. I cast a few more times and went back to work. Never happens in the canal like that. Has to be the full moon high tide.

Hasn't happened in 95 years and won't happen again till Oct 13, 2049. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

I used to teach HS Biology and had my own theory on this. The semi-circular canals in our ears are filled w/fluid that moves relative to the position of our heads. Kinda like a liquid gyro. This is how we maintain our balance. When there is a full moon, the increased gravitational pull also pulls on this fluid, causing subtle dizziness in many individuals, the end result being irrational and crazy behavior. The surgeon general has yet to accept my theory. Go figure.
