While they're at it, they should map the bumps on his head.

Prepare to hear the pyschobabble about how the mass murder gene it's on the same DNA strand as "Likes Michael Bay Movies", "Modern Warfare 3", "Appreciates Ethnic Poetry to beats (RAP)" and all those are tied together with the Anti-God particle.

Next week in the Christian Science Monitor...

This. A sample size of one doesn't give you much of anything at all.

Or that makes pedophiles like Star Trek.

Isn't this how Virtuosity started?

Ahh, yes, because environment had nothing to do with it whatsoever.

Calm Down Francesca, don't get your knickers in a twist.

papa_neslo: Brilliant reply. I am both humbled, and awed by your intellect. I abase you by merely being on the same planet as yourself.

You forgot "gaiety."

When it comes to looking at whole genomes? No, it usually doesn't. Except as in "you started a sequencing project." We have far too many variations from the baseline "reference" as individuals. When you are dealing with rare recessive genetic disease, sometimes you can get lucky with a sample size of one and narrow down to a handful of candidates but when looking for genetic clues as to proclivity to commit mass murder? Not so much. Although chances are we will find tons of variants already linked to violent mental health issues.

yah, an easily mapped single SNP. right.

I say use the SOB's body for all the experiments they want. Next up, how does a corpse respond to large men defecating onto his face? Must repeat testing for best results.

It bugs me that acts of evil immortalize people as much as acts of great good. (Or sex tapes)
