Super Full Moon Shines Brightly This Weekend
AP) ^ | June 22, 2013 10:52 AM

The moon will come within 222,000 miles of Earth and turn full around 7:30 a.m. EDT, making it the best time to view.

As in any supermoon event, high tides are forecast because of the moon’s proximity, but the effect is expected to be small.

Forget about the myths that swirl every time a supermoon appears. There’s no link to higher crime or bizarre behavior. Scientists say that’s just lunacy.

I wonder if there have been studies looking for spikes in the number of incidents of cops shooting dogs or unarmed individuals when a supermoon appears?

I guess they did not check out the shootings in Chicago. Than again that is probably normal for that city.

I remember visiting Grandma in Syracuse. Some guy ran into the telephone pole out front, with a stolen car, and ran off. My Dad called the cops, but it took a while for one to show up. The cop apologized for taking so long, told my Dad, “We’ve been real busy, full moon tonight”.

They don’t call them “lunatics” for nothing. The ER used to be a madhouse. Every bi-polar crazed idiot was in attendance

don’t be silly...

...everyone knows that both the earthquakes AND the brighter moon are due to global warming...

Full moon?

Adult language warning. Movie is not a complete waste of time but is for the most part. Pat Paulsen’s finest starring role.

I know lots of both. It is not a joke or old wive's tale. People can pull stats out from anywhere. Talk to the folks on the ground that have to clean up the mess. They'll tell you straight.
