Affects of the Full Moon

I swear the affects of the full moon make people act a little off kilter. I have already seen signs the full moon is approaching. I can zone in on the moon and don't even have to look at my calendar to check. Days before the moon is full (like today), I get calls or come into contact with people that say something or do something that makes me just shake my head and think...what the hell was that about...crazy people!
By the way, the calendar says the full moon is on Monday, July 30...

I know the moon affects the tides.. We are made up of mostly liquid, right? The full moon affects all liquid. According to astrology.com, we tend to retain more water during a full moon and, because our skull is unable to expand when fluid pressure increases, the excess water is sometimes manifested in "full moon madness." That's hitting the nail on the head....

It is said a full moon occurs when the moon is exactly opposite to the sun. This is a moon of high energy, the highest peak before it begins to wane. During this phase, your activities are brought to fruition and you will see the results of your efforts. Even if things have not gone well, during this phase, you will suddenly see clearly what was wrong.

As per Wikipedia,the full moon has been linked to crime, suicide, mental illness, disasters, accidents, birthrates, fertility, and werewolves, among other things. Some people even buy and sell stocks according to phases of the moon, a method probably as successful as many others.

Numerous studies have tried to find lunar effects. So far, the studies have failed to establish much of interest. Lunar effects that have been found have little or nothing to do with human behavior, e.g., the discovery of a slight effect of the moon on global temperature,* which in turn might have an effect on the growth of plants.

Of course, there have been single studies here and there that have found correlations between various phases of the moon and this or that phenomenon, but nothing significant has been replicated sufficiently to warrant claiming a probable causal relationship.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you notice a change in people just before the arrival of the full moon?
