Fact Check

Pat noticed this, and I looked it up after my last post. The Moon causing a rise in crime is folklore. Read about it here. I heard it on an episode of Cops years ago, and thought, "gee, that's interesting." Oh, well. I also looked more into the menstrual cycle thing. There is a bit of folklore behind it too, but some scientific backing as well. So, yeah.
