Well we would make copies if someone would stop turning the copier on and off.


And on and off.
And on and off.
And on and off

Actually, according to my in house geneticist, they haven't found a genome wide significant loci.  The findings in this specific case are more than likely not real.

There are variations that correlate with OCD, but you'd find multiple regions that are significant, not just one.  And none of them are unequivocal.

If he wasn't facing east during the handwashing it doesn't count.

The thing that sucks most about OCD behaviors is that you know they don't make any sense but you can't help doing them.  I hope more that this helps with the diagnosis of OCD too (if they actually found the genetic marker).  It took 8 years after an incorrect ADHD diagnosis to be correctly diagnosed with OCD.

Keep this up and we won't need psychiatrists or psychologists. Just a genetic test before handing them medication.

What a wonderful future

You mean behaviors and intelligence are largely inherited and the blank slate is a myth?  Shocking!
