The Dado was 4ft high - the writing was on it. The shoulder height thing seems to have come from the idea that the blurriness could be caused by someone's shoulder brushing past it.

Come on Monty - the writing was on the Dado of the wall and the Dado was 4ft high (it's all in the evidence). Look up GSG in the Begg, Fido & Skinner A to Z.

There's very little blood pressure in the capilliaries in your hand - the carotid is a large artery supplying blood to the brain at high pressure.
