Please note this is a later edit. If you read the original (Oct 09 2017) post it's probably not worth re-reading. If it was worth reading in the first place.

Anyway, I was why wondering werewolves have to be shot with silver bullets...and the common factor is the Moon. In the old alchemy belief each solar object had an influence on the Earth, the Sun produced gold, and the Moon created silver.

All the major silver producing countries* have a dearth of werewolf legends, and there might be a connection...the Moon. Central and Southern America have a great deal of silver and bugger all werewolves.

Silver-poor areas (ie Western Europe) might have suffered more, due to a lack of silver, and so race memories of werewolves would tend to survive longer.

* Well..they might fool around with the elementary particles until they get silver, but I suspect the prosaic truth is they just dig it up with shovels.

       There is very little Kryptonite on our planet, and yet almost zero Supermans. Either there's some deep conspiracy going on, or this theory of yours is bollocks.

       A quick trip to the help file indicates that this post falls somewhere in the neighborhood of ....   

       " study suggests "   

       " theory"   

       " research "   

       .... rather than an idea.

       // We all know that the distribution of elements in the Earth is influenced by the astral bodies - in this case the moon - //   

       Oh, not plate tectonics and vulcanism then ? All those deposits of metals around the periphery of granite intrusions are just a red herring ?   

       Had us fooled ...   

       // so Central and Southern America have a great deal of silver and bugger all werewolves. //   

       How do you know there are bugger all werewolves, though ? Have you done a survey ? What did you do, wander round Venezuela on moonlit nights with a pencil, clipboard and record sheet ?   

       Are your results externally validated and peer-reviewed ?

       I've never run into a werewolf yet who disagrees with this finding.

       Buggary and werewolves in the same breath. I would Google it... but I just know... well, you know.

       Yup. Definitely in the category of "Things not to use as search terms on the internet".   

       It's dispiriting how many seemingly innocent combinations of everyday words can instantly transport the unwary enquirer to a dark place they really didn't want to go, or indeed suspected existed ....

       //Buggary// is oddly a medium-sized town in New South Wales. There are also two Mount Buggerys, both in Victoria.

       It's rather like the art of teleportation through the flue network. Jumble your words a bit and you can end up in the wrong part of town.
