Hospital Study Shows Patients Have Werewolf Like Characteristics At Full Moons

#1
A study in an Australian hospital has identified a spike in out-of-control "werewolf" patients when a full moon is out.

There were 91 emergency patients rated as having violent and acute behavioural disturbance at the Calvary Mater Newcastle hospital from August 2008 to July 2009.

Leonie Calver, a clinical research nurse in toxicology, said almost a quarter of the cases (23 per cent) occurred on a night of full moon and this was double the number for other lunar phases.

The patients all had to be sedated and physically restrained to protect themselves and others.


Linkage.

That's what came up for me.

Edit: I actually have no idea if that's in any way related, but I 'm guessing the Twilight fans also like werewolves.

I remember reading an article that said the number of vampire cases rise during the night and severely decline during the day.

While this statement is kinda racist and straightforward, it does have many FACTS to back it up lolz.

Werewolves and full moons? You mean like the concept that was originally thought of for fictional horror stories?

EDIT: And what defines Werewolf-like behavior if no one has ever seen a real werewolf? Maybe real werewolves make you dinner and dust your furniture.

But how can they glitter if it's really dark and nobody's there to stare at them?

I read an article that stated cases of teen pregnancy decline after people reach 20.


Seriously I did.

It's just body glitter. That has nothing to do with being a vampire, more so with homosexuality.

The main ingredients were belladonna and nightshade, she said, both substances that could produce delirium, hallucinations and delusion of bodily metamorphosis.

It's probably just a misunderstanding.

"Oh shit, not another werewolf!" *loads gun*
"No, you twat, I'm in pain!"

I don't know about werewolves, but my dad's a doctor, and he's always telling me about how the hospital always gets more patients, gets more phone calls, and people usually act a little crazier than normal on full moons.

Maybe the patients have organised this and they're just doing it to **** with the doctors and nurses, to put them on edge. Ya know, for the lulz

I volunteer at a hospital and from what i've heard from the pwople that work there, they can agree with this.
#25
Maybe they saw one of the nurses' full moon and they went "AWOOOOOOOO, dayuhm!".
