Another anecdotal:  This from my mother, aunt and several casual
acquaintances (nurses working with the general population in hospitals):
Significant difference noted during occurrence of full moon:  more
accidents (emergency cases), patients get "fussier", and some are
"completely off the wall."  ("I could tell you stories....")  Have heard
this often enough, from various sources over the years, to wonder if
there's anything to it.  Maybe no scientific evidence, but for these
nurses/doctors, etc., it was a fact.  Just my two-cents worth.
