Full Moon

Do you think the full moon affects human behavior? This is just an opinion poll, we don't require scientific data to support your beliefs. Anecdotes are nice though!

I know it does for me. The howling at the moon bothers the neighbors, but only my SO is bothered by all the shedding after the full moon passes.

I voted nope, but I do not believe that it has NO effect on behavior. I used to work on a maximum security ward at a state mental hospital and I watched this very closely. And I found the inmates were not any more likely to act out during a full moon than any other time. The most unruly behavior did not occur during the full moons.
