Paul, you are driving me crazy when you keep repeating this. Are you
stating some law of mechanics, or quoting a well-known study, or what?
This is the most counterintuitive statement I have heard from you and I
have just got to know what is the reasoning behind it.

I have asked you about this before and maybe you posted something for me
but I didn't catch it?


P.S. I assume you mean LCA, not chimp?
