Default Value of Mitochondrial DNA

I've got a theory,

Patricia Cornwell had a grandfather...

All the best

Hi,

Do you have any evidence for that?

Best wishes.

My hypothesis is that she may have had two grandfathers.

I dont really understand this little idea of yours.

Is it little because it has no basis, or is it little because it is not worth bothering about?

Best wishes.

Although I dispise the 'trust me' type anecdotal, I can say, as one who had cervical spine surgery on Jan 17 2014, and had metal plates and screws put in my body, that coming off opium based pain medication will drive you crazy. Especially so, in one's inability to achieve paradoxical sleep.
Ridiculous. As a person who went through opiate withdrawals many times, I can say that opiate withdrawal would make a person far too sick to even get out of bed. Sickert wouldn't have had the physical ability to pull off these crimes if he was detoxing off of opiates. He would have been in his bed sweating, shaking, vomiting, and crapping his pants.
