    No I don't think so, the moon is the same size regardless of whether it's full or not, it just reflects more light when it's full. I'm not superstitious about that kind of thing.

    The moon doesn't affect 'water', it has a gravitational pull, that's how it controls the tides. Gravity affects everything

    No it hasn't grown in size -- it is closer to Earth - so it 'appears' that way.

    The distance coincides with the full moon

    The babies in my NICU always seem to misbehave on a full moon, but we don't usually realise it was a full moon until after the fact.

    I work with young adults with ID's and we always know that a full moon is here by their behavior. It ALWAYS gets worse during a full moon.

    I use to work in a government call centre many years ago and we would get very random calls around full moons.
    So random that we actually printed off the moon cycles so we would know

    I work for a government agency and at first I thought the full moon was a load of bull until I worked my first one and I'm a believer now. On full moons I spend the majority of the night at the local hospital with people that need mental assessments and these aren't run of the mill either, they are usually people that have had complete mental breakdowns and are very erratic or people that literally have to be physically restrained from hurting themselves. I am yet to work a full moon where the night is relatively normal.

    My mum used to work in a dementia ward and she 100% believes it had an effect on the patients behaviour. The moon effects the tides and our bodies are something like 80% water so I do think it has some sort of effect. My dd and ds were very well behaved yesterday though!

    Yes, absolutely.
    Whenever i worked night shift during a full moon it would get crazy - the difference was noticeable.

    The nurse in ICU yesterday said they have more people come through on full moons than any othe time, barring Easter and Christmas/New Year periods.
