There’s a theory that there are more crimes committed, more accidents, more mental problems, etc., on the nights when there is a full moon. One might logically assume that when the full moon coincides with the solstice and with a total eclipse of the moon, the incidence of unfortunate happenings would skyrocket (pun intended).
In noting the dispatch calls for fire, aid, and police, and the various local media news reports for the past 24 hours, I do not see an obvious increase in the number of responses.
Has anyone else thought about this or looked at any statistics? Maybe the whole theory is just a myth, but my personal experience in the past has backed up the “it must be the full moon” argument. I usually notice that cars are driving even crazier than usual, there are even more jaywalkers than usual, etc.
There has not been a such a confluence of lunar events for several centuries until last night, so I guess there’s no history to either support or refute such a theory.
