Lunatic means "of the moon." The word lunatic actually means moon struck. Police forces all over the country man more police officers during a full moon. The craziness may not be permanent. Think how the moon affects the tides then consider you're about 80% water.

When a full moon occurs if there were people on the moon would they see a full Earth'?

Seeing Earth From the Moon . No, they would normally see a "new Earth" (dark). The moon shines by light reflected from the sun. The moon has phases because as it orbits the earth the side that is toward us is sometimes completely in daylight (full moon) sometimes completely in night (new moon) and sometimes partly one and partly the other (assorted phases). During the full moon the Sun, Earth and Moon are all lined up in a straight line with the Earth in the middle. The near side of the moon is facing the earth *and* the sun so it is all lit up. The side of the earth which is facing the moon though is facing away from the sun, thus it is night time and the earth would look dark to people on the moon. At the time of the new moon the situation is exactly reversed and then the moon would see a full earth.. Here is more:. Because the Earth is between the sun and the moon for a full moon (i.e. the moon is "behind" the Earth), occasionally the Earth's shadow will fall across the moon, creating a "lunar eclipse". Similarly, it is during a "new moon", with the moon between the sun and Earth, that we get a "solar eclipse", the moon's shadow blocking the Sun. What may confuse some is that the moon orbits the Earth just once every 28 days. Its apparent motion on a daily basis is just us spinning around on the Earth beneath it. . A lunar eclipse here on Earth means that someone on the Moon would see the Earth partially or completely blocking the Sun, as we do in solar eclipses. . The far side (back) of the Moon is never visible from Earth, and conversely the Earth can never be seen from there.

Why do people turn into Werewolves only on a Full Moon and never on a normal Moon?

Werewolves change any time they want not just full moon. And they transform they don't change. It depends on what story you are bassing on. Legends change over time,and more stories are added often, so know one know really if they change just on fullmoons, or any night, or anytime. I think that, if you go by the fullmoon therory, they transform then because wolves are known to howl more on fullmoons. Sometimes, in other therories, they transform willingly. Like whenever they needed there wolf instincts for help.

What is a full moon?

Answer . A full moon only occurs when the sun and moon are 180 degrees opposed to the other with the earth in the middle. What we see as a full moon is really the sun shining it's light so it fills up the whole surface of the moon as it rises above the horizon at night.

Are people crazy?

Some people have nervous breakdowns and causes them to go mental, that is what the Lunatic Asylums are for. However, if you mean 'wierd', everyone is unique so nobody is normal, and nobody can be ab-normal or wierd. When people say normal they mean habits that occur in lots of people, with a bunch of people who do not do these things, or do other things are classed as 'wierd'. In the answer to your question, no, because if the whole human race were crazy, no-one would be crazy, as that would be the ordinary thing to be. However, a few people are crazy and are sent to Lunatic Asylums.

One of the phases of the moon is a full moon. This is when thewhole disk of the moon is illuminated.

Why do you have full moons?

The sun is always shining at the moon. However, sometimes we can only see part of the moon that the sun is shining on. When the sun is behind us and the moon in front of us, we can see all of the part of the moon that the sun is shining on. If the sun is behind us and the moon is to the left or right of us, we can see part of the moon that the sun is shining on and part that it isn't shining on. However, because that part of the moon is so dark, we cant really see it all, so we see a half moon. As the moon orbits the Earth wee see more or less part of it lit up. The moon then seems to disappear altogether, which is because we can't see any part of the moon being lit up. The moon is getting fuller at present, so each night we see a bit more of it lit up. After it is full we will begin to see less of it being lit up.

Why do you have crazy people?

That's quite a broad question isn't it. I guess it depends on your definition of crazy... If you mean why do some peoples actions not fit with a social norm, or why do some people do or think things which I wouldn't do then this is to do with the way their brain processes information about the world around them. Everybody's brain processes information differently, and therefore people assess situations differently and draw dissimilar conclusions about what is going on around them and formulate different responses to a stimulus. These different responses can be as a result of learnt behaviours, cultural differences, damage to part(s) of the brain, mental trauma (including breakdown and extreme stress) or a plethora of different causes, including birth defects, hormonal imbalances, etc. In short 'crazy' people exist because as an outside you are unable to fully understand how a third party's mental processes have lead them to taking the action you consider 'crazy'. If you are asking why we allow 'crazy' people to exist, this is because most cultures respect the sanctity of human life, and have determined that it is morally wrong to kill people just because their behaviour does not fit with our social norms.

Why do cats go crazy with a full moon?

Probably the same reason some humans are said to go crazy on a full moon. The moon has influences on the Earth such as ocean tides. Living things could be picking up the gravitational and magnetic influence the moon has on the Earth - thus sometimes acting strange.

How do crazy people go crazy?

It depends on what you mean by crazy. Ordinary people can sometimes act a little crazy, usually out of frustration at not being able to exert normal control over something or something happening one too many times that they can't seem to overcome or avoid. If you mean crazy as in eccentric, some people go one step farther in their annoyance, frustration, and otherwise being unable to change something or things that really upset them and eventually develop various coping strategies that make them seem odd or unusual to others. If you mean crazy as in mental illness, there are a few different reasons a person developing these conditions and they are conditions that the sufferer has much less or no ability to control or alleviate themselves and require professional intervention. Reasons for these are dysfunction or chemical imbalance of the brain, a traumatic occurrence or occurrences in their lives that are beyond a persons ability to cope, or suffering damage to the brain itself. .

Why do people act weird on a full moon?

Some people act strange during the full moon because they are somehow, mentally connected to the moon. This is a rare mental condition called lunalarkina . The cause of this condition is unknown, and has no known cure. I have studied patients with lunalarkina for many years. The most common symptoms are tiredness, exaggerated humor, the need to be loud, and wanting to be around other people to talk (only during the full moon). I have seen severe cases of this where some times people will faint when the moon is at its very fullest (it only happens for a minute or two). This is a very easy condition to live with and should not majorly affect your life.

Do crazy people think they're crazy?

It depends on what type of mental condition a person has.

Do people suffering from depression behave abnormally during new moons and full moons?

Yes, I can speak from personal experience on this. Its often been thought that there was a link between the phases of the moon and depression but so little research has been done on the subject. The few studies that have been done have proved inconclusive but then, these studies have been fundementally flawed. The results have been based on studying whether referrals from doctors for patients complaining of depression have increased in relation to the moon phases. Well, I have been affected by the full and new moons my whole life and I have never been to the doctors and I'm sure there are many people the same. Also, it is highly likely that many people who are affected by the moon are unaware of the moon connection as it manifests itself as short bouts of depression, so many people might simply dismiss it. It was only through a coincidence that I made the connection and even then I wasn't fully convinced until I bought myself a calender with the phases of the moon on and saw there was no mistaking the correlation. It may differ from person to person but for me it spans a five day period beginning five days before a full moon. The first day is by far the worst, and it is far more than just feeling a little down, its a complete change of personality. This feeling gets progressively less as the days go on until the actual night of the full moon when I just snap back to my old self. I would love to know if other people experience the same thing but like I said so little research has been done.

Why do people act strangely when there is a full moon?

They don't. But people believe they do - even educated people. they eIn a study, the people in hospital causalty/A&E units were asked about what they expect at a full moon.

The same type of study was done with police officers - they too all aid that the full moon gets them busier - but the facts and figures don't back them up.

Why some people act strangely during full moon?

There is no proven correlation between moon phases and human behaviour that would fall into the "lunacy" category. An article from Psychological Bulletin [Vol 97(2), March 1985) called "Much ado about the full moon: A meta-analysis of lunar-lunacy research" written by J Rotten and I W Kelly published the results of a meta-analysis of 37 studies examining the relationship between moon phases and human behaviour and found that moon phases account for no more than 1% of variances that would be termed as lunacy. "Lunacy of the moon", an article in the Psychological Bulletin [Vol 85(5), September 1978 written by David E Campbell and John L Beet came to a comparable conclusion. However, there are some people who believe that the moon's gravitational pull can have effects on the human body, perhaps influencing our behaviour. The theory suggests that because the moon's gravitational pull affects our ocean tides, perhaps it can have some kind of pulling effect on the water in our body. There is no scientific proof of this theory that I'm aware of.

Why do people act stranger during full moon?

How does the full moon effect peoples mental health?

There's been a myth for years that the full moon affects the mental health of Earthlings. And, strangely enough, large metro hospitals have records that, indeed, people by the hordes show up in their hospitals at the full moon. There is no physical or astronomecal evidence to support such a theory. There has long been another theory, down through the ages, that some men change into wolfmen at the full moon, run amok, and savagely kill innocent people. There has never been a recorded incident of a wolfman manfesting himself, moon or no moon.
