I can’t say “moon”. It’s just best not to try. But, that is for a specific social group anyway. To the rest of the world, I say “supermoon”.
Anyway, this supermoon stuff in the press and shared on social media. It’s bullshit. Just thought you should know. See this thread on Twitter.
Fuck this #supermoon2018 bullshit. It’s only 14% larger. This isn’t noticeable with human eyes. It’s 30% brighter. Again, not a noticeable difference to humans. At least more people will be looking at the skies I guess.

Very soon we will have the “Blue Monday” phenomenon which isn’t a phenomenon. Give it a couple of weeks and we will see newspapers spreading non-science and bullshit by declaring that “this Monday is the worst Monday”. If only we knew when this started?
Well, we do!! It was an advert for a travel company. Read this by Ben Goldacre.
If you want to find me on Blue Monday, I’ll be in the office RANTING about the bullshit.
