THE BIGGEST FUCKING SUPERMOON OF THE GODAMN CENTURY IS GOING TO BLOW UP THE SKY NEXT WEEK

Via: Gizmodo

As night sets in on November 14, wander outside and gawk at the sky. If the weather is clear, the will be at its biggest and brightest in nearly 70 years, and it won’t put on a similar display until late 2034, astronomers say.

A so-called “” occurs when the moon is not only full, but is orbiting close to Earth. This month’s will be the closest to Earth since January 26, 1948.

NASA says a supermoon – technically called a perigee moon – can appear to be as much as 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter than a full moon at its furthest orbital point.

But NASA says the November 14 moon could, arguably, even be called an “extra-supermoon”, and here’s why.

GROW CANNABIS ACCORDING TO THE PHASES OF THE MOON, DUDE

According to an age-old farming tradition, the phase of the has a huge impact on how well a plant will grow. Without getting too bogged down in the nitty-gritty of astrological signs, here’s the general idea behind gardening according to the moon. The whole idea hinges on the idea that the moon’s gravitational pull affects water in the ground. This is very similar to the way the moon affects the ocean’s changing tides.

According to the tradition, the moon’s pull on groundwater has a direct impact on how well different plants grow. The time between a brand new moon and the is called the waxing phase. The moon gets bigger and bigger every night during this phase.

As the moon gets increasingly large, it pulls water up toward the surface of the Earth. This is the time to plant things that produce fruit or leaves above ground.This would include things like tomatoes, leafy greens, grains, squash, beans, and most important of all, cannabis.

 

 

 

12 DEVICES AND APPS TO QUANTIFY YOUR SLEEP

You can quantify just about every part of your life with today’s tech, but what’s more important than getting enough rest? There are now a plethora of ways to keep an eye on the quality of your sleep as well as how much you’re getting.

While we’ve not been able to play around with all of these gadgets at the Gizmodo office, you shouldn’t have to look too far on the web to find reviews from current users, which will help you make a choice. Where we had the chance to test out a device, you’ll see it mentioned it in the text.

Plus. for reasons of brevity we’ve counted out smartwatches, but don’t forget the likes of the Apple Watch, the Moto 360, and just about every other model on the market that can track your snoozing as well as telling the time — provided you don’t mind going to bed each night with a watch strapped to your wrist.

 

 

HOW THE FULL MOON INFLUENCES YOUR SLEEP

Sleep may be one of the simplest changes you make to your daily routine, affecting everything from your mental and emotional health to your physical health.

Impaired sleep or lack of sleep may impact your immune system, increase your risk of heart disease, raise your blood pressure and increase your risk of Alzheimer’s disease.1

Poor-quality sleep may also impact other serious or chronic underlying health conditions, such as kidney disease, multiple sclerosis or gastrointestinal disorders.

 

 

DOES THE FULL MOON MAKE KIDS HYPER? HERE’S WHAT (LYING) SCIENTISTS SAY

The real question is what is “science” hiding?

Via: LiveScience

Kids really do sleep less when there’s a full moon, but only by a few minutes, according to a new study that included children from a dozen countries.

What’s more, the study failed to find a link between the occurrence of the full moon and kids’ activity levels, debunking the myth that kids are more hyper during a full moon.

The study “provides solid evidence … that the associations between moon phases and children’s sleep duration/activity behaviors are not meaningful from a public health standpoint,” the researchers, from the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario Research Institute in Ottawa, Canada, wrote in the March 24 issue of the journal Frontiers in Pediatrics.

ARE TURKEYS AFFECTED BY THE FULL MOON? MORE IMPORTANTLY, ARE WERETURKEYS REAL?

Via: Field & Stream / Ask Phil

I live and hunt in the great state of Iowa, and with turkey season fast approaching, I need to pick which season I want to hunt. I have a fairly open work schedule so I am free for any of the first three season splits. I hunt on a family friend’s land so I shouldn’t have to worry about other hunters, but my question is: should I be taking into account the phases of the moon and try to hunt during the full moon?

[Iowa requires hunters to choose which season split(s) they wish to hunt, a system designed to spread out hunting pressure.]
—David H.

One of the many things I like about hunting turkeys as opposed to hunting deer, is that when you’re scouting and hunting, you know every turkey track you see was made during the daytime (when you could hunt the bird), while deer tracks may have been made at midnight. Turkeys are diurnal animals, and, as such, I don’t believe they are particularly attuned to phases of the moon.

THE FULL MOON RUM FESTIVAL IS RETURNING TO CARDIFF WITH MORE THAN 100 RUMS TO TRY AND IF WE HAD A ROCKET-SHIP WE WOULD GO THERE IMMEDIATELY.

Via: Wales Online

The festival was successfully launched last year at The Full Moon in Cardiff. It proved a huge hit when it was launched last year now the Full Moon Rum Festival is heading back to Cardiff .

Taking place at The Full Moon in Womanby Street, event manager Sam Holland, promises there will be something to cater for all tastes.

He said: “Last year’s rum festival was a total game-changer for us here at The Full Moon. We’ve always loved our rum, and have always prided ourselves on our rum selection here.

THE MOON’S “BLUE” LAST QUARTER PHASE EXPLAINED. HINT: IT’S NOT CHEESE RELATED.

Via: Space

As the moon moves around Earth in its monthly orbit, there are four points at which it is in exact geometry with the sun and Earth: new moon, first quarter, full moon, and last quarter.

These are the four points at which the Earth, moon and sun are in a straight line, or the sun and moon form a 90-degree angle as seen from Earth.

At new moon, the moon is between Earth and sun, so we are trying to see the moon’s dark side in front of the brilliant sun. We can never see the moon at new moon because of the bright sunlight, except on the rare instances when the moon is directly in front of the sun and we get a solar eclipse. Because of the tilt of the moon’s orbit, most of the time it passes either above or below the sun, but still close enough that it is lost in the sun’s glare.

DOES A FULL MOON AFFECT YOUR CHILD’S SLEEP? SCIENCE WEIGHS IN WHERE COMMON SENSE DOES NOT.

Via: CanTech

It’s a question posed since the first exhausted parents tried to deal with their Energizer bunny of a child, still up and still rambunctious at one o’clock in the morning – is my kid a werewolf?

Now with a recent study on how the lunar cycle might be affecting children’s behaviour we can finally announce the more or less definite results: not likely. The comprehensive study tracked the waking and sleeping habits of 7372 children aged nine to 11 from 12 countries around the world to see if their behaviour was affected by the full moon. Using accelerators strapped to the children’s waists to monitor movement, researchers were able to collect data on sleep duration, light-intensity activity, moderately vigorous activity and total sedentary time over a seven day period. Once the results were calculated and coordinated with the various phases of the moon, it was found that only sleep duration was affected by the lunar cycle -on average, children slept five minutes less when the moon is full, representing a one per cent reduction in sleep time.

REPORTS OF A 4-20 “GREEN MOON'” GO VIRAL, BUT ARE THEY TRUE? OR JUST SKUNKY DIRT WEED NONSENSE?

Duuuude!
Duuuude!

Via: Penn Live

The full moon on Wednesday, April 20, will not be green, despite several hoax reports making their way through social media.

In fact, the full moon this month will come on Friday, April 22. The hoaxers apparently went with April 20, which might also be referred to as 4-20, to include a street reference for marijuana in their joke.

One of the original hoaxers eventually went on to support his original, simple meme of a green-tinted moon with an elaborate, but totally false, explanation involving the alignment of the moon with Uranus. Even that alignment won’t happen.
